Centre for Applied Research secures NSERC grant

The Centre for Applied Research and Innovation has secured a $50,000 grant, with equal contributions from NSERC Engage and Alberta Innovate’s CASBE (Campus Alberta Small Business Engagement) programs. The grant builds on the expertise of the Aquaculture Centre of excellence (ACE), and involves a partnership with 1722497 Alberta Ltd. The goal of the partnership is to develop a zero-waste food production platform based on microfiltration and nutrient recycling designed to provide the highest yield output for a vertical farming aquaponics system in a greenhouse space. This project will utilize a uniquely designed microfiltration process using biochar.
