Industrial carbon management research gets $3.75 million boost
Date:12/4/2012

cause biofuels are carbon neutral (CO2 is removed from the atmosphere in the biomass and then released during combustion). Further, the re-use of fossil-derived fractions within the mixed low carbon fuels will increase fossil resource usage efficiency. One key aspect of the project is to increase the feed rate of low-carbon alternative fuels. The change in gas emissions from the plant, expected to be beneficial, will be monitored and well as the effect of the various fuels on the physical and chemical properties of the cement produced, through life cycle assessment.

Project: Designing carbon pricing policy to drive innovation in low carbon technologies and practices

Lead Investigators: Dr. Randal Wigle, Wilfrid Laurier University; Nicholas Rivers, U of Ottawa

Co-PIs: Stewart Elgie, U of Ottawa; Jared Carbone, U of Calgary; Yazid Dissou, U of Ottawa; Madanmohan Ghosh, Environment Canada Partners/Contributors: Environment Canada, Sustainable Prosperity

CMC Investment: $400,000/2 year

A barrier to the adoption of a carbon price is the perceived economic cost. This venture work will develop a model that advances the capacity to design carbon pricing policies that maximize innovation incentives while minimizing economic and social costs. There are two key questions this research will explore: 1) what drives innovation in technology and in practices required to achieve GHG reductions; and 2) how can associated economic and social costs be minimized. This work will result in the development of a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model that could help address economic concerns regarding carbon pricing.

Project: Carbonate production by sequestration of industrial CO2: revalorization of mine and industrial waste

Lead Investigator: Guy Mercier, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS)

Co-PIs: Jean-Francois Blais, INRS; Sandra Kentish, U of Melbourne; Ian Gates, U of Calgary
