Expanding Sudbury's research 'culture'

Cambrian College and Laurentian University announced an agreement Wednesday they say will boost research and innovation in Northern Ontario.

The agreement facilitates the creation of collaborative partnerships and enables faculty, students and staff at both institutions to pursue large-scale research projects, Cambrian and Laurentian said in a joint press release.

Dr. Dean Millar, professor of Energy in Mining at Laurentian’s Bharti School of Engineering, and Energy Director of MIRARCO explains how a unique hydraulic air compressor (HAC) system may be developed to clean and cool the air in ultra-deep mining environments, where air temperatures may reach upwards of 40 degrees Celsius to Dr. Rui Wang, Laurentian University Vice President of Research, at the lab at Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ont. on March 8, 2017.
