Government of Canada invests in world-leading clean water technology

Innovation to reduce environmental impact from oil and gas industry operations while reducing costs of production.
 
Delta, British Columbia - A strong economy and a clean environment go hand-in-hand. That’s why the Government of Canada is supporting the development of technologies that lead to less pollution, healthier communities and the creation of well-paying middle-class jobs.
 
The Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development announced an investment of $2.1 million in Mangrove Water Technologies.
 
Funding for Mangrove Water Technologies Inc. will support its zero discharge desalination technology, which will reduce the environmental impact of oil and gas sector operations. This revolutionary innovation treats saline wastewater and converts the salts into value-added chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide that can be used on-site. This technology helps oil and gas producers reduce costs and water usage, resulting in cleaner air and water over the long term. It will also help to maintain three jobs and create up to ten additional jobs.
 
This project received funding and support from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), which helps Canadian entrepreneurs accelerate the development and deployment of globally competitive clean technology solutions.
 
Investments in clean technology are part of the Government’s Innovation and Skills Plan, a multi-year strategy to position Canada as a global leader in innovation and create good middle-class jobs right across the country.
