Watch: HESIC capabilities & IZ success story video

Niagara College’s Horticultural & Environmental Sciences Innovation Centre (HESIC) is proud to officially launch its latest video highlighting the capabilities of the Innovation Centre and the magic partnership  with International Zeolite.  

Based in Canada, International Zeolite is a vertically integrated organization that covers the complete value chain from zeolite production and supply to direct-to-consumer capabilities. Its products are tested, applied, and exceed the standards in all markets served.

Building on multiple projects and several years of work together, International Zeolite Corp. (IZ) and HESIC recently announced a formal agreement that will catapult the research relationship to new heights. Along the way, they plan to contribute to methods of increasing food production and therefore the ability to feed more people.

Under the terms of the agreement, Niagara College will provide priority and support for research projects in relationship to IZ’s proprietary grow system NEREA®, which will be carried out by HESIC. Niagara College will provide ongoing access to resources, staff, and space to support these research projects. The College will also work with IZ to explore prospective advanced manufacturing, business and commercialization projects and alignments, as opportunities may arise. Further, Niagara College will support the efforts of IZ in their establishment of the company’s new production facility in the Niagara region.
