The innovation is a form of polymer resin that filters water by absorbing various contaminants, including sulphur and hydrocarbons such as oil, gas, and diesel. The innovation will be tested by Indigenous Services Canada.

Through the program, Public Services and Procurement Canada bridges federal departments that have an operational need with businesses that can fill the need. Purchasing departments test the innovations in real-life settings and provide feedback and a first reference.
