Clean Tech Hub



UBC Okanagan’s Clean Tech Hub promotes clean technologies that convert carbon-based additives and components into new, sustainable products. UBCO researchers will work with manufacturing, mining and lumber companies in Western Canada to explore how industrial waste can gain a second life as high-quality carbon products.


One example is the conversion of carbon collected during the recycling process of heavy industry vehicle tires into battery electrodes that power electric vehicles. These new products have applications in both domestic and international markets and will open up new exporting opportunities for Canadian-made innovation.
