Green Centre Canada (GCC) is rapidly becoming a major commercialization force to be reckoned with as it implements its unique collaboration-based technology transfer model and prepares to expand internationally.

It’s a resource that most of us take for granted – an abundance of clean, safe drinking water available at any time, whenever we turn the tap.  Behind the scenes, thousands of dedicated professionals in municipalities, government and the private sector work tirelessly to deliver on this promise - overcoming challenges far beyond the simple equation of supply and demand.

Using a new Laboratory Positron Emission Tomography scanner designed by a team of multidisciplinary collaborators at the Université de Sherbrooke, medical researchers across Canada can more easily and effectively monitor disease processes in small animals, with the end goal to provide better treatment for people.

The Queen’s-RMC Fuel Cell Research Centre (FCRC) located in Kingston at the Innovation Park of Queen’s University has an international reputation for being the place to go for innovative solutions for new fuel cell product development.

A commercial-scale process to extract and reuse pure hydrogen from the hydrogen sulfide that naturally contaminates unrefined oil, including oil sands, is one step closer to reality thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and Kingston Process Metallurgy Inc. (KPM) of Kingston, Ontario.
