What We Do

Our Blue Planet is a Canadian innovation company with a focus on Clean Technologies. We are currently involved with projects in two main areas – Industrial Innovations and Green Carbon Technologies. Recently we have added a COVID-19 PPE innovation company  ‘NanoV8’  to our stable.


Innovation of all sorts is what gets us up in the morning and frequently keeps us up late at night exploring new ideas on our white boards. We want to move at light speed toward new goals. We are looking for the big leap in technology, the disruption in the marketplace, and to embrace change on all fronts. There’s an urgency to get things done around here and time can’t move fast enough for us. There is always a list of new ideas to be explored and reach beyond the obvious. We live to create new ideas!
