This year, the Canadian Carbonization Research Association (CCRA) and CanmetENERGY, part of Innovation and Energy Technology Sector of Natural Resources Canada, are celebrating a rewarding and beneficial 45-year partnership.
Welcome to the CCRA Website
The Canadian Carbonization Research Association (CCRA) was formed in 1965 to conduct research on behalf of Canada’s steel and metallurgical coal producers for the competitive advantage of the industry. The Association has corporate members from Canada’s major steel and coal mining companies and government members from both federal and provincial jurisdictions.
The Association has a Technical Committee of industrial/ government experts that meets quarterly to review and plan research, and a Board of Directors to allot funds for all work.
Much of the research is done at NRCAN’s- CANMET Energy laboratories in Ottawa which has complete facilities for modeling, laboratory, and pilot scale research into energy applications for metallurgical processes. CCRA has a mandate to improve the energy efficiency of Metallurgical Processes for the advancement of Canadian Industry.
