Natural Resources Canada Meeting

During FlexSNG’s trip to Canada, on 9th February 2024, we had a fruitful meeting with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) at their CanmetENERGY site in Ottawa. At this site the research and development focuses on clean energy innovation for a low-carbon future, the relevant aspect to FlexSNG is that NRCan is researching gasification techniques. During the meeting we were also given a tour of the biofuel and gasification experimental labs.

With the new Pillar II agreement recently signed between Canada and the European Commission for inclusion in the Horizon Europe programme there is now a real opportunity for European national centres to collaborate perhaps in the follow up to FlexSNG.  

In addition to European funding, we were introduced to the ‘Mission Innovation’ which is a global initiative to catalyse action and investment in research, development and demonstration to make clean energy affordable, attractive and accessible to all this decade. This will accelerate progress towards the Paris Agreement goals and pathways to net zero (Source: https://mission-innovation.net/about-mi/overview/). This also opens the door for further collaborations between Europe and Canada.
