Concordia partners with Arkema, Rondol to advance battery innovation


Concordia University has signed a five-year collaborative agreement with material sciences company Arkema and extrusion-tech-specialist Rondol Industrie. Concordia and the two French companies will explore the production of innovative, rechargeable battery components as a way to meet the increasing demand for sustainable and new materials in the electrification industry. “We believe that this collaboration will further strengthen our ongoing commitment to creating a sustainable future, putting another spotlight on France-Quebec collaboration in novel areas of green technology, aligned with the 2023 France-Quebec Year of Innovation,” said Concordia President Graham Carr. This partnership is supported by a $123M research grant from the Government of Canada.
