Grant of $ 150,000 for the development of a bio-based insulating foam

Mecanum Inc. is proud to announce the granting of a $ 150,000 grant which will finance the development of a thermo-acoustic insulating panel as part of the first phase of the Biofoam Insulation Challenge, aimed at developing greener insulation products. Sponsored by Natural Resources Canada, this challenge is part of the Domestic Plastics Challenge of the federal Innovative Solutions Canada (SIC) program.

This project aims to develop more ecological insulating materials from forest residues in order to reduce our ecological footprint.

"In the next two years, Mecanum's development of an optimized thermo-acoustic sustainable material will be accelerated thanks to the grant from phase one of the Biofoam Insulation Challenge. This material will be the first to link both microstructure and thermo-acoustic properties."
