MLA Fleming welcomes over $1.4 million for clean tech projects in Victoria

Posted in:

VICTORIA – New Democrat MLA Rob Fleming says people will benefit from an investment of over $1.4 million in funding for clean tech projects that will support a healthier environment and green jobs.

“Through our CleanBC Plan, we are building a stronger, more sustainable economy that works for everyone,” said Fleming, MLA for Victoria-Swan Lake. “These projects will reduce carbon levels, create a cleaner environment and contribute to regional food security and food storage innovation.”

Cryologistics is receiving $1,439,000 to develop carbon-dioxide refrigeration technology to reduce emissions in the cold freight transportation sector. Global Energy Horizons, based in Victoria and operating as CleanBerry for this project, is receiving $40,000 for a carbon sequestration and hydrogen production pilot plant in Pemberton.

This year, the province is providing $8.4 million for nine projects through the Innovative Clean Energy (ICE) Fund. Part of the government’s CleanBC plan, the ICE Fund supports the research, development and commercialization of clean energy technologies that will reduce B.C.’s emissions and create new economic opportunities.

The BC New Democrat Government has been working hard to keep people safe and healthy and will continue to work hard on a long-term recovery to build B.C. back stronger.
