Generating solutions that improve both the economy and the environment.

Company Overview

"GreenCentre’s mission is to work with industry and academia to advance novel green chemistry research and technologies that improve both the economy and the environment."


We take a hands-on approach to developing chemistry and materials-science innovations. From helping commercialize academic and entrepreneurial discoveries to providing established companies a confidential space to expand their R&D capabilities, we transform chemistry breakthroughs into products and services that will enhance quality of life and preserve the environment for future generations.





Our two state-of-the-art lab facilities set GreenCentre apart globally, and our team includes highly experienced chemists, commercial experts, and business professionals who work closely with our vast network of entrepreneurs, industry leaders, investors, and researchers.


Partnerships are at the heart of GreenCentre’s mandate, and we provide research and development services to three distinct customer segments, each with different needs and financial means:

                Academics and Primary researchers

                Small companies and entrepreneurs

                Large and medium-sized corporations


Formed in 2009 and funded by the Government of Ontario, the Government of Canada, and various industry partners, GreenCentre is a member of the Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) and is headquartered at Innovation Park at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
