Saskatchewan Renewable Fuels Startup Selected for International Accelerators

NULIFE co-founders Brock Eidem and Jerry Kristian

Saskatoon’s NULIFE GreenTech is making international waves with its renewable fuel technology.

The company is one of seven companies chosen for the Repsol Foundation Entrepreneurs Fund‘s tenth cohort. The fund, managed by Spain’s oil and gas firm Repsol, looks for innovative energy startups that are focused on sustainable energy transition. NULIFE will receive funding, mentorship, market access and pilot testing, beginning in October 2021. The company is looking to commercialize its oxygen reduction (HDO-hydrodeoxygenation) catalyst for the renewable fuel industry.

“We would like to thank Repsol for selecting NULIFE to participate in their program. NULIFE is excited to have the opportunity to work with Repsol in our continued development of our innovated catalyst which
is designed to change how we create renewable fuels,” said Brock Eidem, Co-Founder of NULIFE GreenTech.

As well, NULIFE will enter the Canadian Trade Commission‘s ClimaTech Accelerator this summer. NULIFE is one of only nine Canadian companies chosen for the program which is designed to help Canadian technology innovators grow markets and attract investments in New York City, San Francisco, Denver and Boston.

NULIFE is working to accelerate renewable fuel production with its patented Hydrothermal Liquefaction (HTL) technology that is used to create renewable fuel from landfill diverted waste. The company has also developed another clean technology – a sustainable catalyst made from landfill diverted waste that removes oxygen (an impurity) from renewable fuel.
