Queen's receives $9.1 million to establish National Center of Excellence in green chemistry
Date:2/27/2009

Kingston, ON PARTEQ Innovations, the technology commercialization office of Queen's University, has been awarded $9.1 million from the federal government towards the establishment of a National Centre of Excellence for the development and commercialization of Green Chemistry technologies.

The first entity of its kind in North America, GreenCentre Canada will bring together Canada's leading Green Chemistry researchers, industry partners, and commercialization professionals with a common goal to develop cleaner, less energy-intensive solutions for traditional chemical and manufacturing processes.

The centre, to be located at Innovation Park at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, will provide expertise in technology development, intellectual property protection, business development, marketing and financial management, complemented with state-of-the-art facilities and expertise for product development, scale-up manufacturing and testing of early stage discoveries.

GreenCentre Canada is funded under the national Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) program to bring promising research-based innovations to market. The announcement was made today at Queen's University by the Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology).

"As a leader in Green Chemistry research, we at Queen's are pleased and excited to see this innovative approach to technology commercialization by PARTEQ realized," says Dr. Kerry Rowe, Vice-Principal (Research) at Queen's. "The need for a national, collaborative centre focused on commercializing Green Chemistry research is reflected by the endorsements that this project has received from researchers and universities across Canada. We are delighted to see this truly pan-Canadian effort come to fruition."

Philip Jessop, a Professor of Chemistry at Queen's and Canada Research Chair in Green Chemistry, will be Technical Director of the centre. Dr.
