Abstract:
Technologies like nanotechnology, biomaterials and microfluidics can play a powerful role in reducing the impact of industrial activity on the environment, while opening new markets for Alberta-developed products and services.

Alberta companies seek a stake in the clean technologies marketplace: Alberta Centre for Advanced Micro Nano Technology Products (ACAMP) hosts clean technologies seminar

EDMONTON, Canada | Posted on September 28th, 2009

Following Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach's September 21 announcement of a collaborative agreement on research in energy and the environment with Rice University of Texas, more than 40 Alberta technology companies are gathering in Edmonton for the ACAMP's Cleantech Seminar on September 28 to exchange knowledge on their clean technology initiatives.

"As well as being North America's leading energy producer, Alberta is also becoming known for innovative, technology-driven products that make the production and the use of energy, and other resources, more efficient," said Ken Brizel, CEO of ACAMP. "This can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce industrial water usage and more."

"These technologies also make our industries more competitive and result in clean technology products and services we can sell worldwide," added Brizel.

In addition to clean technology solutions, the seminar features discussions by venture capitalists on moving ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace and the various ways to secure investment for entrepreneurs and start-up companies. Future ACAMP seminars will cover MNT (Micro Nano Technologies) for the health & medical, traditional energy and agriculture & forestry industries.
