Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) Professors Dr. Ashley Scott and Dr. Greg Ross were recently presented with the Research Project of the Year Award by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). Ross, Scott, and their team of graduate students collaborated with Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations (Sudbury INO, a Glencore company) in Falconbridge, Ontario on the research project, titled ‘Industrial off-gas supports biofuel production.’ The goal of the project is to reuse waste heat and carbon dioxide in order to create a greener alternative to burning fossil fuels.

Established in 1994, the Awards attract international attention.
