The MACC has been awarded a major provincial grant through the Ontario Research Fund: Research Excellence (ORF-RE) program, to help support its cutting-edge research over the next five years. Led by Dr. Chris Swartz, and with all MACC faculty members and several member companies participating, the funded project is titled "Enhancing competitiveness of industrial process operations through responsive, flexible and cleaner production".
Building on the MACC's track record of success with solving industrially relevant problems, the initiative will involve pioneering research in agile industrial operation, optimization-based decision support methods, and design of integrated energy systems, with the goal of maintaining industrial competitiveness amid increasing variability in product demand, supply availability, and utility costs.
