Home > Press > SDTC Call for Funding Applications

Abstract:
The Canadian NanoBusiness Alliance is pleased to announce that on January 24 2007, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) will be opening its next funding round and begin accepting applications for late stage technology development and demonstration projects. SDTC is actively seeking applications for technology innovations that deliver clean water, clean soil, clean air and climate change benefits. Applications that integrate benefits across a number of these focus areas are of greatest interest to SDTC. SDTC recently released a series of Sustainable Development Business Cases (SDTC SD Business Case™) that identify priority investment areas in biofuels, hydrogen and cleaner conventional fuels. These reports are available for download at: http://www.sdtc.ca/en/knowledge/business_case.htm
