Energy is a critical component in the life-cycle of any material, from production and manufacturing, to use and disposal.
In the age of limited natural resources and energy availability, the demand for efficient hybrid materials is increasing.
Professor Glenn Hibbard, Canada Research Chair, Cellular Hybrid Materials and his research team focus on the development of advanced cellular architecture nanomaterials. The result: lightweight and ultra-strong materials for transportation and aerospace applications that increase safety and performance, enables the use of sustainable energy technologies, and reduces consumption of fossil fuels.
