ZEN Graphene Solutions, a Canadian graphene based technology company, and NPNL Professor Mohammad Arjmand have recently announced their award of CAD$780,00 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and assorted contributions, according to Graphene Info.
This grant will enable both groups to fund future projects, such as purchasing necessary lab equipment, such as tensile testing equipment and a freeze dryer for NPNL.
Dr. Mohammad Arjmand commented, “NPNL is so pleased to work with ZEN to move the boundaries of graphene science and technology. I strongly believe that this Alliance Grant will develop and commercialize graphene nanomaterials and their multifunctional polymer nanocomposites availing Canadian high-tech industries.”
ZEN Head of Research, Dr. Colin van der Kuur commented, “Dr. Arjmand’s lab has demonstrated the ability to understand the demands of industry, and his lab has been instrumental in supporting the technological success we have had in our Guelph lab. I fully expect that this four-year agreement will continue to bring significant innovation to ZEN and will result in the growth of our IP portfolio and business opportunities.”
