Facilities

As a developer, you know your technology is unique. But will it provide a complete solution?

As an end-user, you want guarantees that proposed solutions will meet your requirements.

The CCCI collaborates with developers and end-users to integrate, adapt and develop technologies into solutions with real-world application. The CCCI has lab space and piloting facilities designed specifically to accommodate the special requirements of technology developers working on carbon capture and conversion technologies. And we can draw on our in-house team of experts and our global network to convene consortia to develop integrated solutions to industry challenges.

Technology Commercialization and Innovation Centre (TCIC)

The Carbon Capture and Conversion Institute is headquartered in a 40,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Technology Commercialization and Innovation Centre owned by BC Research.
