New Clean Energy Lab Opens in Mississauga

TerraCanada’s advanced materials research facility expansion, located in Sheridan Research Park, is now open.  The $77-million investment in science infrastructure consists of two additional floors and more than 6,000 square metres of laboratory and supporting spaces to the existing National Research Council of Canada’s (NRC) Advanced materials research facility building.

The TerraCanada facilities in Mississauga and Hamilton will use materials acceleration platforms (MAPs) to make the process of discovering and developing materials faster and more efficient, cost-effective, accurate and precise by leveraging artificial intelligence, robotics and high-performance computing. New materials are critical for creating the clean technologies needed to help Canada in meeting its emission reduction targets and growing its clean energy and manufacturing sectors.

The research carried out at the Mississauga and Hamilton facilities contributes to the objectives of the TerraCanada science hub, including:

  • developing the economic potential of Canada’s land and resources in a sustainable manner
  • supporting Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy
  • mitigating the impacts of natural and human-made hazards on the safety and health of Canadians

The Mississauga facility provides modern, sustainable and accessible laboratories and office spaces for around 100 scientists, research partners and administrative staff. By investing in leading-edge science infrastructure, the Laboratories Canada strategy will attract and retain global talent and promote opportunities for diverse researchers and students, strengthening the Canadian research landscape for generations to come.
