Scaling Innovation in Alberta Heavy Industry


The Cement Association of Canada and Emissions Reduction Alberta have jointly prepared a summary of ten case studies of innovation and collaboration in the concrete sector supported by ERA and the TIER fund over the past ten years. Altogether, they total $70M of investment, $275M+ total project value, with over 2.2Mt CO2e direct emissions reductions by 2030 and an even greater number of enabled reductions as technologies are rolled out across the market. While this list is by no means comprehensive, these case studies are all viable decarbonization pathways across the five “C’s” being demonstrated in Alberta today. Together, show how the industry is addressing most, if not all, emissions reductions pathways and exemplify the technology leadership of Canada’s heavy industry.
