Building a new bio-economy

Lakehead University recently received $391,820 from the Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) to hire three technicians in soils, biorefining, and materials science, areas that are key to the development of new products and services based on the natural resources of Northwestern Ontario.  A fourth individual will be hired to develop and market these new capabilities. Work is well underway as all the staff have been hired and are currently contributing to the work of LUCAS.
 
The Co-Principal Investigators, Dr. Nancy Luckai (Forestry), Al Mackenzie (LUCAS), Dr. Robert Dekker (BRI), Dr. Lionel Catalan (Chemical Engineering), and Dr. Robert Mitchell (Geology), have a tradition of working with industry and government in sustainable resource management.
