Spinoff wins backing from major packaging company

Thursday, September 8, 2022

A startup company founded by a Waterloo Engineering professor and two of his graduate students has won US $250,000 to expand and commercialize green technology for the packaging industry.

Nfinite Nanotechnology was launched on Earth Day in 2021 by Kevin Musselman, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, and Chee Hau Teoh (MASc ’20) and Jhi Yong Loke (MASc ’21), who earned master’s degrees while developing the technology in his lab.

Based in Waterloo, Nfinite was announced this week as one of two winners of seed funding from Amcor, an international packaging company with US $15 billion in annual sales in 43 countries.
