Together with Calgary-based Canada Chemical Corporation, and US-based Reform Earth Technologies, we are developing the world's first facility which will take Municipal Solid Waste and plastics and convert it directly into the cleanest burning diesel, or aviation fuel, available. This process would therefore make a substantial contribution to Calgary achieving net zero emissions by replacing fuel for municipal... more »

Calgary's carbon footprint is enormous and costly to the environment and the economy. Yet, high quality data is lacking on how the choices and daily activities of Calgarians drive emissions. The data gap is equally huge in terms of how policies, incentives, and initiatives are helping or hindering people to right-size their energy use.
Through Calgary Climate Hub's established connections with... more »
