“Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees are to carefully consider actual measurable accomplishments, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the Honouree’s contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action”.

“Grant Smith was chosen after rigorous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among Honourees selected from an initial pool of over 1,000 well qualified nominees,” added Pitchford.

Mr. Smith was recognized in the Clean50 Clean Technology category for Pond’s work in developing and commercializing its patented algae growth technology, which reduces carbon and creates sustainable biproducts. The company has developed and advanced ground-breaking technology that turns 2 tonnes of CO2 to grow 1 tonne of different kinds of valuable algae that in turn can be used in different and helpful ways. In an agreement dated September 7, 2021, Livalta (an AB AGRI Company) and Pond agreed to an exclusive global partnership to grow algae-based animal feed from CO2 emissions. The demonstration system will be used to grow algae strains for animal feed trials and the development of commercial animal feeds which will be sold by AB Agri. The Company is currently focused on completing this demonstration facility as well as progressing through its commercialization roadmap across a myriad of industries.

“I am extremely honoured to have been recognized by the Clean50 program in the category of clean technology, and I sincerely want to thank the entire team at Pond for their dedication in transitioning our Company from a research and development focus to commercialization of our robust technology globally.,” said Grant Smith, CEO.
