Cleantech Optimization

About Austin Innovation

At Austin Innovation Inc., we specialize in optimizing renewable electrical power. Our cleantech products increase efficiency for the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy.

During COVID-19, we have temporarily used our team’s innovative abilities and manufacturing techniques to support the delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE). As a stopgap solution, we worked closely with Selkirk College and Hall Printing to scale the production of plastic medical face shields. Through end-user feedback, we employed an adaptive manufacturing model to create a high-quality design, tailored to meet form, fit, function, comfort, and ease of sterilization targets. We shared our design and production techniques with the Provincial Health Services Authority and partners at the University of British Columbia, who are coordinating testing with national and international epidemiology teams.

We now work with regional manufacturing expert, Hall Printing, and industrial plastic specialists to meet demand.

As we continue to work to successfully flatten the COVID-19 curve, we’re focusing on developing a universally adoptable mask. Our team is creating a premium Canadian biodegradable and compostable paper product. This new cellulose product, created for COVID- specific supply chains, captures 100% of the value in Canada, promoting a circular economy.

Though our company has temporarily pivoted its focus, our mission remains: to create cleaner, more efficient networks that generate and optimize existing renewable power. We’re located on the Kootenay-Columbia River system that currently produces over 40% of BC’s power needs.

We modernize and optimize electrical energy using data systems, cleantech software, and hardware products. We are committed to increasing efficiencies through technological solutions, and to providing useful metrics based on cost, environmental impact, and end-user delivery.

Austin Innovation COVID 19 Face Shield

Austin Innovation is currently scaling up the production of medical face shields in Trail, B.C. as a stopgap measure to meet the demand for COVID-19. 

An innovative partnership with Selkirk College has enabled the production up to 250 personal protective equipment face shields a day.

Designs have been based on fit, functionality and comfort tailored for the end user. Efforts have been expanded to not only equip healthcare workers but also other essential service workers, such as firefighters, RCMP, and postal workers.

The Austin Innovation team is in close communication with the Provincial Health Services Authority and partners at UBC Vancouver, who are coordinating epidemiology with national and international teams.
