UPEI to establish Atlantic Zero-Emission Energy System Laboratory

The University of Prince Edward Island plans to establish the Atlantic Zero-Emission Energy System Laboratory, which will produce clean and sustainable fuels and materials from biowaste. UPEI Assistant Professor Dr Yulin Hu will lead the development of the new laboratory, which will be housed in the university’s Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering building. “This will help PEI and the other Atlantic provinces reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, improve energy security and diversification, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions,” said Hu, “which will accelerate the transition towards a clean, low carbon footprint and sustainable economy.” This project is supported through funding from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Innovation PEI, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
