The MACC has launched orfre.mcmaster.ca, a new website dedicated to showcasing our ongoing research in sustainability. Funded by an Ontario Research Fund - Research Excellent grant, the MACC has been researching how to design new sustainable chemical and energy processes, how to control them, and how to automate them in a sustainable way. Our research projects include the development of better solid oxide fuel cell systems, better biofuel systems, more sustainable air separation units, safer and more efficient operation of building climate control systems, optimization of chemical process supply chains for sustainability considerations, and more.
