Congratulations to PhD student Nikolai Burton for winning the Student Poster Presentation Competition at Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference (CSCHE) 2023 in Calgary. The poster was based on a recent publication in the Journal of Membrane Science that shows record water vapour permeance for graphene oxide membranes with potential use cases in enabling more compact, energy efficient membrane dehumidification systems:

Two University of Waterloo startups have been named among 10 winners of a national energy solutions competition.

Evercloak Inc. will receive funding to support a $1.2 million project to develop a dehumidification technology for air conditioners that will cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the energy use of cooling systems by over 50 per cent. Michael Pope, assistant professor, chemical engineering, and Evelyn Allen, corporate researcher partnerships manager, in the Office of Research co-founded the company in 2018.

A startup company co-founded by Waterloo Engineering professor Michael Pope recently won $25,000 in seed funding in a pitch competition meant to encourage Canadian innovation.

Evercloak, a cleantech startup that specializes in manufacturing ultra-thin graphene and other 2D nanomaterial films, took first place in the environment and electrification development category of the Ontario Power Generation Ignite contest.

Thursday, June 21st marked the conclusion of a successful international workshop at the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN). For the past four days, representatives from the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE) in Germany and WIN met to discuss opportunities for joint funding proposals and establishing student knowledge exchanges. 

Michael Pope, Chemical Engineering professor and collaborators are working to improve energy-storage devices known as supercapacitors. Their novel design roughly doubles the amount of electrical energy the rapid-charging devices can hold, helping pave the way for eventual use in everything from smartphones and laptop computers, to electric vehicles and high-powered lasers.
