UNBC establishes Environmental Solutions Innovation Hub

The University of Northern British Columbia will be establishing an Environmental Solutions Innovation Hub through an investment of over $1.9M from the Pacific Development Agency of Canada. The hub will be housed in UNBC’s Northern Analytical Laboratory Services lab and will support the development of new materials and technologies that can be used to address water management, mining, forestry, bioenergy, and other environmental issues in Northern BC. The funding will allow UNBC to procure advanced instruments and personnel needed to perform chemical and physical analytical work in aid of local and regional natural resource-based firms. “[This funding] will enable us to continue to meet our mandates of education, research, and community service,” said NALS head Dr Hossein Kazemian. “We are working on solutions to air, water and soil pollution that will offer benefits to our region and the world.” PacifiCan| UNBC| CKPG Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
