The CLEER project in Canada may help sustainably source minerals and metals in Canada.

CLEER thinking

The Clean, low-energy, effective, engaged and remediated, or CLEER, project, is intended to help Canadian companies sustainably source minerals and metals.

An initiative that goes by the acronym CLEER (clean, low-energy, effective, engaged and remediated) has been shortlisted by Canada’s federal government as a potential project that could benefit from a piece of a 950 million US dollar fund.

The overall goal is to boost job creation and the Canadian economy. The initiative focuses on significant environmental benefits, with a target of a 50 percent reduction in carbon footprints by 2027. It is hoped that this project will mean minerals and metals can be sustainably sourced, and that the methods can be used as a template for projects all over the world.
