Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) is investing $43 million in several clean technology projects of which $20 million will be matched by the Province of British Columbia. The investments include $10 million in the Automotive Fuel Cell Corp — a joint venture with Daimler AG and Ford Motor Co to develop new fuel cell modules. Industry and other contributions boost the project’s total value to $88 million. Canfor Pulp Products Inc is receiving $13 million to further develop a technology project to convert waste water into a low-cost bio-fuels product. The biocrude can then be refined by existing refineries into biofuels and biochemical.
