carbonNEXT: Catalyzing Carbontech Commercialization
CarbonNEXT is Canada’s carbontech commercialization hub established by Foresight and Carbon Management Canada to drive development and scaling of Canadian carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) ventures.
CarbonNEXT brings partners together to energize innovation, accelerate commercialization, and fast-track adoption of Canada’s carbontech solutions.
As policy signals align and investors mobilize, this country’s first generation of CCUS startups is gaining traction after over a decade of hard work. The next generation of CCUS innovators across Canada needs a different kind of support to more rapidly identify markets, derisk technologies, enable pilots, capital, and scale. Their partners in the Canadian heavy industry need support to engage in the innovation ecosystem, to efficiently source and validate solutions, and to ensure “fit” in real operating environments.
CarbonNEXT will streamline this journey for innovators and industry partners. We leverage the country’s largest pipeline of emerging cleantech solutions providers through Foresight Canada. Founding Partner Carbon Management Canada provides valuable knowledge and connections through their infrastructure of testbed facilities and experience supporting industrial emissions reduction solution validation and commercial deployment.
CarbonNEXT will position Canada as a global leader in industrial carbon reduction technologies by:
- Building a collaborative pan-Canadian ecosystem focused on the needs of Canada’s heavy industry and on CCUS-specific applications and innovation gaps.
- Growing the number and quality of CCUS companies operating in Canada.
- Driving domestic and international adoption of Canadian carbon tech by heavy emitters.
