Growing prosperity in Alberta's agriculture, food and forestry sectors
Projects funded under the Biological Greenhouse Gas Management Program

The Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation's mandate is to establish or participate in funding for initiatives that reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) or improve Alberta's ability to adapt to climate change. The CCEMC mission is to accelerate the achievement of actual and sustainable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and support climate change adaptation through partnerships and collaboration in the discovery, development and deployment of technology for application in Alberta.

Through its partnership with Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions in the Biological GHG Management Program, the CCEMC has supported the following research initiatives in biological sectors.
