Canada holds one-third of the world’s hydrocarbons as well as the largest bitumen reserves. Canada is also one of the world’s most stable, democratic countries with an open vibrant economy.
An industry champion seemed essential! Thus, creating Proton Technologies – a new business dedicated to proving, patenting and commercializing the new technology- would fulfill that potential.
