Jeosal Materials originated when a group of researchers were looking for new technology to reduce reliance on rare-metals used for electrical conductivity. This led to some interesting discoveries in the world of polymers and how they can be harnessed to replace traditional materials. Polymers are also very useful in nanoscale technology, colloids and interfaces. This has opened up a whole new world of potential uses and our team is excited to see what they can be used for next.
After much success in the field of polymer research and a partnership with the prestigious Queen’s University, Jeosal began to diversify its focus. This diversification led to the process of recycling. Our research into this area allowed us to receive funding on behalf of the Canadian Plastics Innovation Challenge. This Nation-wide challenge is aimed at finding economically viable solutions for recycling so it can be diverted from landfills and/or transformed into useful materials.
