ABOUT RXN HUB


RXN HUB is an institution dedicated to enabling the commercialization of chemical technologies that address complex sustainability challenges. By providing support to the chemtech sector, RXN HUB specializes in scaling up and piloting advanced materials, process innovations, energy and energy storage solutions, and green chemistry practices.

 

Our primary offering is the Piloting Program, which has been specifically developed by founders, for founders, to grant venture-backed start-ups access to scale-up and piloting spaces. Within RXN HUB's specialized laboratories and piloting facilities, companies will have access to a comprehensive range of services, equipment and talent that can expedite procurement, mitigate technology risks, and accelerate time to market, with subsidized costs. We supplement this with a range of other professional services for innovators and the backing of our 12 founding partners to foster collaboration and establish a cohesive domestic ecosystem, working collectively toward North America's innovation objectives.

The establishment of RXN HUB continues the momentum of Kingston's burgeoning cleantech ecosystem, leveraging its rich history and expertise in chemistry to support the growth of Canadian cleantech successes. This global initiative aims to enhance domestic technology development, foster increased collaboration within the national cleantech ecosystem, and contribute to the creation and retention of Canadian jobs within the green economy.
