MTCwill leverageworld-class research institutes in Alberta to hasten the development, evaluation and market entry of MesoCoat’s high performance and low-cost nanocomposite materials and cladding process into the mineral, mining and oil sands processing industries in Alberta and outer regions.

The investments in the Albertaoil sands industryis anticipated to grow consistently from $35 million per year to more than $1 billion per year, as the production of wear resistant materials will increase thrice in the next four years. This provides considerable growth opportunities for MesoCoat nanocomposite overlay materials in the market.
