Titan Named Foresight Canada's “Foresight 50”- Canada's 50 Most Investible Cleantech Ventures.

November 8, 2023- Calgary, Alberta

We are thrilled to announce that Titan Clean Energy was named Foresight Canada's “Foresight 50”- Canada's 50 Most Investible Cleantech Ventures.


This year’s Foresight 50 honourees were chosen from over 150 applications, reviewed by a panel of independent judges representing investors and cleantech community partners. Judges selected the honourees based on criteria including investability, potential environmental impact, job creation, and probability of success.


Jeanette Jackson, CEO, Foresight Canada, is enthusiastic about this year’s nominees, "The ventures included in this year’s Foresight 50 are nothing short of awe-inspiring. These game-changing innovators are scaling the critical climate solutions we need to solve the world's most urgent climate challenges and accelerate the transition to net zero. Congratulations and thank you for all you are doing for Canadian cleantech!" 


The opening event was held last night in Calgary with each company pitching their climate solution.  Jamie Bakos presented Titan’s solution of revolutionizing waste management and combatting climate change through slow pyrolysis.  Pyrolysis sequesters three tonnes of carbon dioxide for every tonne of carbon production, with the company’s offtake is converted into products such as activated carbon, bio-plastics, and biofuels.  


A forum, meetings and a reception follow today.
