List of cleantech projects receiving SDTC support


British Columbia

  • RecycleSmart Solutions Inc. - $1.68M - RecycleSmart aims to decrease the driving distance of collection trucks (and thereby the fuel consumption) and increase landfill diversion rates through an integrated intelligent multi-sensor system with enhanced routing and detection capabilities.


  • Synauta - $1.2M – Synauta is a cleantech startup actioning machine learning technology alongside desalination plant operators, to treat more water with less energy, less chemicals, and save up to 20% of operational costs.


  • Anaergia Inc. - $6M - Anaergia aims to turn a liability (biosolids) into an asset (energy and fertilizer) that reduces GHG emissions, health risks and disposal costs compared to landfilling biosolids.
  • Fibracast Ltd. - $2.5M - Fibracast membranes are designed to reduce water, energy and air pollutants by removing pollutants from wastewater.
  • Equispheres Inc. - $8M - Equispheres' powders enable automotive and aerospace manufacturers to reduce the weight of their products to make them more fuel-efficient.
  • Smarter Alloys Inc. - $4.8M - Smarter Alloys uses shape memory alloys to turn waste heat (lukewarm water) into electricity.
  • Borealis Wind - $1.4M - Borealis is developing a hot air ice protection system (IPS) to retrofit wind turbine blades, leading to reduced icing and up to 70% recovery of lost production.
  • Axis Labs - $3.5M - AXIS is developing a retrofit smart window shade automation product for commercial buildings, reducing lighting loads by 24% and cooling loads by 12%.
  • E-Zn - $2.0M - A multi-day energy storage system that is 20–50% less expensive than lithium-ion batteries, which will accelerate the displacement of diesel generation by renewables.
  • Xanadu - $.4.4M – Xanadu’s quantum computers will be able to solve extremely challenging computational problems that are beyond the reach of today's computers. They will do so far faster and consume much less electricity.


  • Pyrowave - $3.3M - Pyrowave’s patented technology breaks down plastics using high heat produced by microwaves. This technology is packaged in small, modular units that can be used directly onsite at recycling facilities and at producers of plastic waste.

New Brunswick

  • SomaDetect - $4.0M - SomaDetect’s bovine milk sensor system will allow dairy farmers to meet future milk demand with fewer cows, through increased production efficiency.

Nova Scotia

  • DMF Medical - $0.7M - DMF is the first company to offer a membrane-based CO2 absorber for anesthetic breathing circuits that reduces emissions by 40–60% and costs by 40%. DMF’s memsorb prevents the venting of high global warming potential anaesthetic gases into the atmosphere.
  • Global Spatial Technology Solutions - $3M - GSTS is seeking to be the first company to provide a global maritime risk and vessel management system using satellite automatic identification system data and machine learning algorithms.
