Canada Invests In Improvements To Green Manufacturing


The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
(NSERC) supports researchers and companies working on large-scale
multidisciplinary research projects in areas of importance to Canadians. As
part of this program, NSERC
is providing the University of Toronto with $5 million to help launch the
Industrial Biocatalysis Network
, which will research novel uses of
enzymes to produce chemicals, plastics, and other products. This program will
be run in collaboration with Concordia University and the University of British
Columbia and will support the growth of the biobased chemical and materials
sector in Canada.
