POLYTECHNIQUE MONTRÉAL X PYROWAVE
Polytechnique Montréal and Pyrowave have received $173,000 in funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) for a research project designed to electrify chemical processes, a promising avenue in the current context of transition to renewable energy and the circular economy.
The collaboration between our two organizations will initially make it possible to conduct experimental tests and develop models at the Polytechnique Montréal Laboratory. Later, the team will be able to validate the results obtained on an industrial scale, using our PW6’s microwave reactor. This project is unique in the world and demonstrates the strong potential from the symbiosis between an innovative industrial partner and academic research.
