The case for cleantech in mining

The case for cleantech in mining

Last month Canada signed a hydrogen deal with Germany. In addition, the Canadian government has signed agreements with German automakers VW and Mercedes-Benz to foster Canadian-German collaboration across the EV supply chain. Both events follow a similar rationale. Canada has the potential to provide sustainably sourced raw materials and critical minerals to fulfill the demand for low-carbon products in global markets. Our country ranks 4th on the global cleantech innovation index, 13 Canadian companies were listed on the Cleantech Group’s 2022 Top Global Cleantech 100.

Accelerating cleantech innovation in the mining sector will be crucial to foster Canada’s competitive edge when it comes to sustainably sourced critical minerals. Canada Cleantech Alliance will strengthen its collaboration with key stakeholders in the mining sector to leverage the incredible cleantech innovations relevant to the mining sector Canada’s innovators have to offer.
