UAlberta biojet technology receives $2.89M

April 7, 2021
Biojet technology created by the University of Alberta will be receiving a $2.89M investment in its biojet technology projects from Natural Resources Canada’s Energy Innovation Program. “The funding sets us up for the next decade of supporting the sector,” said lead researcher and UAlberta Professor Dr David Bressler. “Biojet fuel is the quickest, easiest and most effective strategy to meet increasing emission standards in the near future.” Renewables Now reports that the funding will support the Alberta Biojet Initiative in the development of pathways to create renewable jet fuel, which has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation industry by 90%.
