To be eligible for financial assistance, a company must have its proposal approved by NRCan before beginning its Process Integration (PI) or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study.
There are three steps to the funding process:
Step 1: Application
- Develop a proposal for the PI or CFD study. If you don't have an engineering firm of record that is qualified to perform this type of study, e-mail Natural Resources Canada (NRCan).
NOTE: for a contracting firm to be considered qualified it must be either an engineering consulting firm or a team of individuals with experience performing PI studies (as well as energy and mass balance analyses) or CFD studies.
- Submit the proposal to NRCan.
- NRCanwill review the proposal and, if it is accepted, will contact you to establish a Contribution Agreement to help fund the study.
Step 2: Implementation
- Arrange for your contractor to perform the PI or CFD study.
- Pay your contractor when the work has been completed to your satisfaction.
Step 3: Reimbursement
- Submit a claim with supporting documents to NRCan within three months of the study's end date.
- NRCan will review and approve the claim and final report.
- You will receive a reimbursement cheque at the end of the project after the final report and claim has been accepted by NRCan.
