Material Futures Inc. has developed a bioprocess to manufacture coloured pigments using cells, instead of petroleum. The process is carbon neutral, renewable, and has the potential to eliminate water pollution resulting from current dyeing methods. Working with students at the University of Waterloo, Material Futures Inc. will be scaling their bioprocess while exposing students to the industrial applications of metabolic engineering and bioprocess engineering. Two students will gain exposure to applied research and development at a top-tier Canadian institution under the guidance of expert researchers and industry leaders to develop their professional skillsets.
