The Landscape Carbon Accumulation Research (L-CARE) project of Laurentian Univ is receiving a total of $1.6 million to support its research on addressing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Ontario. Of the total funds, 50% or $798,000 is from the TargetGHG program under the Ontario Green Investment Fund announced in Budget 2015. The other half will be provided by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), a TargetGHG partner. L-CARE is a part of the TargetGHG Stream 2 Collaborative R&D Program. This stream supports industry-academic collaborative R&D projects and aims to achieve Ontario’s 2020-2030 targets for GHG emission reduction. Concentrating on the management of brownfield and other industrially-impacted landscapes, the L-CARE project will study the approaches to reclamation management as part of a carbon sequestration strategy. This is in relation to extensive hard-rock mining. The project will examine the treatment and management strategies across mine tailings environments; and the upland, wetland, and aquatic ecosystems. The L-CARE project partners are Laurentian Univ, Vale Canada Limited, Glencore’s Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations (Sudbury INO), and the City of Greater Sudbury. Co-investigators and collaborators are McMaster Univ, Trent Univ, Queen’s Univ, Univ de Sherbrooke, and Univ du Québec à Montréal. Other collaborators are Cambridge Univ, Cornell Univ, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and the Canadian Forest Service. TargetGHG program is administered by Ontario Centres of Excellence.
