Canadian engineers of Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) are finding innovative and commercially realistic technologies for saving energy and greenhouse gas emissions. Three projects related to saving energy and greenhouse gases have received preliminary approvals for SDTC funding recently and are undergoing negotiations. In one project, solar power is used to convert landfill methane into hydrogen. Sunarc of Canada is installing demonstration units of its insulation system on vegetable growing greenhouses. In Alberta, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) Canada, another project is developing where earth is used as a thermal energy storage medium for heating and cooling, integrated with a solar energy resource.
