Up to $2 million For Food Processors to Buy Equipment
Funding to Reduce GHG Emissions while Improving Processing and Growing Efficiencies
Canada’s Agricultural Clean Technology Program: Adoption Stream will contribute 50% up to $2 in non-repayable (grant) funding towards investments in commercially available clean technologies and processes with a priority given to those that show evidence of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and other environmental co-benefits. Areas of eligible investment include but not limited to:
- Green energy and energy efficiency including better management of energy intensive processes and technologies.
- Precision agriculture including management strategies that gather, process, and analyze data; and decision support tools and technologies that improve real time input use and nutrient management.
- Bioeconomics including technologies using agricultural waste and by-products for energy and bio-product generation.
Eligible costs include equipment purchases, consulting, project administration (maximum 10% of total project costs) and project-related salaries and wages. Minimum applicant investment is $50,000 over 5 years (i.e., to 2026). This program is available to Canadian food processors as well as farmers. The total program budget is $100 million over 5 years. Funding will be awarded on a first come first serve basis.
