CALGARY, AB (June 1, 2021)

Ionada is proud to announce it’s the recipient of the NGIF Industry Grant for carbon capture utilization, and sequestering (CCUS). Ionada won the award during a competitive call featuring a large number of participants. Ionada is a climate technology firm that develops, manufactures, and markets post-combustion carbon capture systems to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Ionada decarbonization systems are a sustainable, and environmentally friendly solution to reduce carbon emissions. Overall, they’re 30% more efficient, and 50% smaller than competing technologies. “Having received the NGIF Industry Grant, Ionada can now move forward in developing its next-generation modular membrane decarbonization system, to reduce emissions across the board,” said Edoardo Panziera, CEO of Ionada. “The project is a private-public partnership, which includes Canadian energy companies, and the Alberta Carbon Conversion Technology Centre (ACCTC).”

NGIF Industry Grants is a division of NGIF Capital Corporation, which has partnered with companies such as ATCO, Canadian Natural, and Birchcliff Energy just to name a few. It is a first-of-its-kind, industry-led grant organization, dedicated to funding early-stage startups who’re developing solutions to environmental, and other challenges facing Canada’s natural gas sector.

“NGIF Industry Grants focuses on start-ups who test their clean technologies through field trials and pilots, as part of our integrated model of industry validation, customer creation, and market commercialization,” said John Adams, NGIF Capital Corporation President, CEO, and Cleantech Ventures Managing Partner. “Innovative carbon capture and utilization solutions, including Ionada’s modular decarbonization systems, can help remove CO2 and produce valuable products that create environmental benefits and economic value.”

Meanwhile, Timothy M. Egan, President and CEO of Canadian Gas Association, and Chair of NGIF Capital Corporation, which operates NGIF Industry Grants, adds… “When we created NGIF, it was our vision to bring the entire natural gas cartel together to support clean-tech development, that enhances environmental and economic performance for the sector.
