Xerox Canada and GreenCentre Canada are collaborating to boost the commercialization of green tech in Canada.

“We are thrilled to have access to the infrastructure and expertise at XRCC, which allows us to take our technology development to a whole new level,”said Rui Resendes, executive director of GreenCentre Canada, in a statement on October 1, 2014. “We are now able to significantly expand our ability to serve our clients and stakeholders in advancing game-changing green chemistry technologies for industrial uptake.”

 The GreenCentre Canada (GCC) Innovation Park is located at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario and is funded by the governments of Ontario and Canada as well as local industrial concerns. It was founded in 2009 to develop green, sustainable chemistry technology to bring to market. In this work GCC is joined by local entrepreneurs and chemistry researchers. GCC belongs to the Centre of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) and the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs (ONE).

The GCC is able to carry on research and development work in its 10,000 square foot facility which houses analytical equipment, inert atmosphere glove boxes, and wet labs with solvent-handling systems. However, GCC was limited by the scale of its facility until this partnership with the Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC).

 The XRCC boasts both the full resources of the Xerox engineering facility and a chemical pilot plant of 27,000 square feet in Mississauga, Ontario. These resources will be at the immediate disposal of the GCC, which will enable the Centre’s previously scoped “scaled and de-risked green technology options” to move into the pilot stage.
This partnership is part of Xerox’s ongoing support of green technology in Canada. According to the imaging company’s information, the average North American employee generates about two pounds of paper every day, almost 3.7 million tons of copy paper gets consumed every year in North America, and despite the ready availability of scanning and paperless storage solutions experts estimate that about 95% of information is still stored on paper.
Xerox has recently released a print management and analytics package that tracks printing behaviors in the workplace. This is intended to help companies manage expenses more effectively, not to mention make greener workplaces a reality.
