An industry partnership proposes to use the partner mining company’s toxic leftovers from its Montauban, Que., mine to fuse them with organic polymer and turn them into environmentally friendly, sustainable building materials.
A public/private partnership has launched a program to eliminate more than 15 million tonnes (15 billion kg) of greenhouse gas emissions from cement and concrete production in Canada by 2030, followed by ongoing reductions of over 4 million tonnes (4 billion kg) annually.
A global report by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has found that despite an increase in investment and worldwide success in lowering the energy intensity of buildings, the sector’s total energy consumption and CO2 emissions increased in 2021 above pre-pandemic levels.
Construction has started on the Modernized Gatineau Energy Centre, a facility which will help the Canadian government reach its goal of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 per cent by 2025.
What could be more fundamental than the air we breathe? As it is invisible and a part of everyday life, people can sometimes take the quality of air for granted. Indoor air in Canadian buildings may contain hundreds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—a diverse group of chemicals emitted as a gas at room temperature that often reach higher concentrations than outdoors.
The Canadian and U.S. economies are inextricably linked—trade between the two countries is the equivalent of $1.6 billion daily, while almost 300,000 people cross the border every 24 hours, according to U.S. Department of State statistics released in June 2012. Due to the interconnected economies, legislators, regulators, and business leaders in both countries work co-operatively and closely on a range of issues of mutual concern, including matters such as environmental protection and sustainability.
