2012/2013 Annual Report
2012/ 2013 Annual Report
In this operating year, the CCEMC funded Alberta’s renewable energy and energy efficiency projects to reduce a record amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Biological projects were also funded, rounding out our portfolio.
2011/2012 Annual Report
2011/ 2012 Annual Report
The 2011/2012 year for the CCEMC saw a new focus on climate change adaptation, funding three important initiatives. Biological methods to reduce carbon emissions were also a focus, as well as carbon capture projects and clean energy solutions. This operating year, we also funded small- and medium-sized enterprises with innovative clean energy solutions.
2010/2011 Annual Report
2010/ 2011 Annual Report
In the CCEMC’s 2010/2011 operating year, we focused on renewable energy funding and energy efficiency funding to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in Alberta. This annual report focuses on these clean energy technologies and the CCEMC’s role in clean energy funding.
2009/2010 Annual Report
2009/ 2010 Annual Report
In our first year of operations, we began funding clean-technology projects in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency, clean-energy production and carbon capture and storage. The 2009/2010 year of the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation set the stage for our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving our adaptability to climate change.

CFI Farming 4R Land Project Final Report
March 14, 2014
Farming 4R Land aims to build a unique network of Alberta farmers, agronomy experts, scientists, fertilizer and agri-business industry leaders, community leaders, and government officials. Farming 4R Land Phase I provided Alberta producers with science-based information and advice on how to use beneficial management practices under the 4R Nutrient Stewardship to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) through the use of the Nitrous Oxide Emissions Reduction Protocol (NERP) when they apply fertilizer or other crop nutrients on their fields. This report further explains the results of this project.
The Canadian Fertilizer Institute in partnership with Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions, and financial support from the CCEMC, developed this report to describe the Nutrient Stewardship project. Farming 4R Land was initiated for Alberta’s producers to demonstrate economic, social and environmental returns by implementing 4R Nutrient Stewardship. This report outlines information on the process, challenges and opportunities for this project.
Developing an Adsorbing Biocarbon to Achieve Greenhouse Gas Benefits in the Remediation of Produced Water from Oil Sands Operations
This report focuses on the development of a new technology for converting aspen wood from northern Alberta into an adsorbing biochar with enhanced yield, improved adsorption capacity and lower cost than existing technologies. Experts in biochar production and activation were consulted in the experimental design (Dr. Hugh McLaughlin, AC FOX, USA, Dr. Glenn Weagle, Champion Technologies, Calgary). This report further explains the results of research that was published in a peer-reviewed journal and disseminated among the research community and industry representatives.
