Global Research Project AwardsWe are very pleased to have the team's work recognized through winning an international award for the Research Project of the Year. This was announced in November at a ceremony in the UK hosted by the Institution of Chemical Engineers and Recognizes the project or process that best demonstrates a novel chemical or biochemical engineering solution to improve resource efficiency, lifetime value and/or process automation. The award was co-sponsored by Simon Carves Engineering.

The award is for a joint project with Glencore's Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations on the use of waste off-gas heat and CO2 to help produce microalgae for bioenergy and other value added products such as antimicrobial agents and nutraceuticals. It was selected from a short-list of eleven very diverse projects that originated from around the world.

The Ontario North Green Economy Network (ONGEN) supports development of a regional green economy by cooridinating research, support services and industries. ONGEN's target is to create new economic opportunity through production of green energy, chemicals and natural health compounds.



Opportunities: funded by industry and research councils we have a range of collaborative research and development projects and opportunities exist for graduates in engineering and biological sciences at the Master's and PhD level. If you are interested in a position or about the work being conducted, please email Dr. Ashley Scott (jascott@laurentian.ca).
