The Nanocomposites and Mechanics Lab at the University of New Brunswick has received federal funding up to $87,380 for its research under Transport Canada’s Clean Transportation System Research and Development Program.

The funding was announced on May 24 at UNB by Minister of Justice and Attorney General the Honorable David Lametti, on behalf of the Honorable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport.

The Nanocomposites and Mechanics Lab, led by Dr. Gobinda Saha, directly responds to industry needs. With this project, it’s researching the impact of a high-pressure spray to coat carbon fibre-reinforced polymer composites and aluminum parts, and observe if reducing the weight of targeted components used on boats and trains would increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases emissions.
