Innovation Park provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as post-doctoral researchers for the development and commercialization of initiatives.

Testing facilities at Innovation Park are helping fumes from car paint generate power.

The Queen’s-RMC Fuel Cell Research Centre (FCRC) is currently researching ways to harness energy produced by incinerating harmful paint fumes, said Brant Peppley, director of the FCRC.

The FCRC is one of several initiatives based in Innovation Park — a 200,000 square ft. complex at Princess St. and Bath Rd.

Queen’s-based initiatives take up around 85,000 square feet of the facility which is made up of a community of researchers and organizations working to simulate commercialization and develop innovations for the marketplace.

“We’re taking a substance that was a pollutant and turning it into clean power,” Peppley, a Queen’s professor, said.
