Two local companies have landed nearly $5 million in funding from the federal government.
3E Nano Inc. of Kitchener will get $2.7 million for its work developing energy-control coatings for windows of buildings and vehicles.
Another $2.2 million is going to Brantford’s GreenMantra, which coverts discarded plastic into new products.
The money comes from Sustainable Development Technology Canada – an arm of the federal government's Ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development focused on bringing clean technology products to market. This year’s federal budget allocated $400 million to the sustainable development fund.
