McMaster University is a public research university located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The main campus is located on 121 hectares (300 acres) of land near the residential neighbourhoods of Ainslie Wood and Westdale, adjacent to Hamilton's Royal Botanical Gardens. McMaster was controlled by the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec until it became a privately chartered, publicly funded non-denominational institution in 1957. The university is co-educational, and has over 25,000 undergraduate and over 4,000 post-graduate students

General Fusion is developing nuclear fusion technology to generate cheap, safe and plentiful energy without greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, or radioactive waste. Nuclear fusion is a process in which hydrogen atoms are fused together to form helium. This reaction releases significant amounts of heat, which can be used to generate electricity using traditional steam turbines. The necessary isotopes of hydrogen can be extracted from seawater and derived from lithium, resulting in a ubiquitous sitsce of fuel and providing a nearly endless supply of clean energy.General Fusion's approach is based on "magnetized target fusion" concepts first developed about 30 years ago. This approach is a hybrid of traditional "magnetic fusion" and "inertial confinement fusion" methods, and involves first confining plasma in a magnetic field, and then compressing the confined plasma to thermonuclear conditions. General Fusion's patent-pending fusion technology involves the equipment needed to contain and compress the plasma, and the systems needed to manage the process. General Fusion is a Canadian venture capital-backed company led by a team of experienced physicists and technology development experts. They are working with government, institutional and industrial partners and consultants to develop a full-scale proof-of-concept fusion generator to demonstrate a net gain in energy within fits years something that traditional approaches have never achieved. Commercialization would take place before the end of the decade.
