The Government of Canada has announced a $15 million investment in clean fuels projects across Canada, including $10 million for initiatives in the Niagara region. Spearheaded by Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Jonathan Wilkinson, the funding supports six projects aimed at reducing pollution and positioning Canada as a leader in low-emission fuels.

Among the recipients is StormFisher Hydrogen, receiving $4.6 million to study a renewable natural gas (RNG) production facility in Thorold. If successful, the project could create over 100 construction jobs and 30 full-time positions, while decarbonizing 16,000 homes and businesses annually.

CHAR Technologies will receive over $5 million to expand its woody-biomass-to-renewable-energy facility from Thorold to other parts of Canada, aiming to decarbonize industries like steel and mining.

Azure Sustainable Fuels Corp. will receive $5 million to study the construction of a sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) facility in Port Colborne, expected to create 1,500 construction jobs and 150 full-time positions.

These investments align with Canada's Clean Fuel Fund, aimed at growing clean fuels production, and underscore the government's commitment to economic growth, job creation, and environmental sustainability.
