Presentations will highlight the Centre for Catalysis Research and Innovation (CCRI) and the SUNLab, and examples of university-industry collaborations hard at work to advance green technologies to market. Dr. Tom Baker(pictured), director of CCRI, will describe research into efficient storage of liquid hydrogen in vehicles powered by fuel cells and converting bio-mass into high-value chemicals for fuel. Profeesor Karin Hinzer will highlight work with solar cells, and Dr. André Tremblay will speak about membrane reactor technology currently being developed through a startup company. More than 100 participants for networking and collaborative discussions from industry, academia, and governments are expected for the morning long event, which will be co-chaired by Dr. Ruby Heap, associate VP for research at uOttawa, and Claude Haw, president of OCRI.
