It’s a little more than a month away from the project screening deadline for NGen’s $100-million Sustainable Manufacturing Challenge.

The project screening deadline is set for June 26, 5 pm EST.  The final application deadline is September 18, 5 pm EST.

The Sustainable Manufacturing Challenge is seeking projects that will support Canada’s path to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and target challenges like emissions reduction. These projects will aim to accelerate the application of Canadian cleantech and other advanced technologies to improve the environmental sustainability of Canadian manufacturing. NGen will invest up to $35 million of Global Innovation Cluster funding and will raise more than $65 million from industry to launch $100 million in new collaborative projects.

“Advanced manufacturing offers many of the solutions necessary to achieve Canada’s emission reduction goals,” said Jayson Myers, CEO, NGen. “NGen is looking to combine our tremendous strengths in cleantech, automation, advanced materials and smart digital technologies to develop solutions for sustainable manufacturing that will benefit Canada and the world.”

Projects must be collaborative and transformative, promising to push the boundaries of advanced manufacturing technology and world-class cleantech. Focus areas should include:

  • Low carbon – fuel, feedstock, energy – applied to manufacturing.
  • Implementation of net-zero facilities.
  • Innovative solutions for high heat generation – applied to manufacturing.
  • Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage – applied to manufacturing.
  • Tracking and managing GHG emissions across the supply chain.
  • Smart Manufacturing for efficiency gains and GHG reduction.
  • Greener/circular/sustainable materials.
