Reactor Engineering Centre (CREC) - a research and consulting laboratory to develop new reactor technologies in close

collaboration with the industrial sector. “This laboratory space represents the significant impact that industry can have on

education and research,” explains Western Engineering Dean, Andrew Hrymak. “Mandel Scientific Company’s generous

support of research in chemical reactor engineering is helping Western Engineering researchers and students to make a



CREC was founded by chemical engineering professor Hugo de Lasa in 1988. It rapidly became one of the best reactor

engineering labs in the world, recognized internationally as a centre of expertise and innovation for new chemical reactor

technologies and ideas. The aim of the CREC is to become a leader in pollution prevention and control. The centre is driving

and inspiring the development and implementation of inventive products and reactor technologies for the petrochemical,

chemical and energy industries. CREC is helping these sectors with challenges such as transforming petroleum feedstocks

and converting intermediate petrochemical products. Engineers at the CREC have partnered effectively with numerous

industries, government organizations and universities, both within Canada and abroad, to collaborate on joint research
