Adam Noble honed his scientific skills as a research assistant at Trent when he was still in high school. He founded Noble Tech Inc. while he was at Lakefield District Secondary School in September of 2013 – and nurtured it through the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster (which works in partnership with Trent and is located in the University’s DNA Building). And he has now, along with business partner and Trent Alumna, Dr. Andressa Lacerda, announced plans for a $20 million, 50,000-square-foot facility in the new Trent Research and Innovation Park.
Noble Tech Inc. researches and grows microalgae strains for use in wastewater treatment. They have pioneered new technologies that are currently revolutionizing the management of wastewater across industries and municipalities.
The company will start construction in the spring of 2017 and become a cornerstone tenant of the park.
News of the launch is a huge boost to Trent’s burgeoning emphasis on innovation – and represents significant research and funding partnerships, both with the University and local municipalities.
