Warm Syngas Cleanup Technology


Late-stage development

We have developed an innovative technology platform to safely remove dangerous contaminants such as sulfur, mercury, and arsenic from syngas at high temperatures. This technology gives rise to significant thermal efficiency improvements, particularly when used in integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plants. See Warm-Syngas Cleanup Technology for more information.

Nanofiber Light Improvement Technology (NLITe)


Mid-stage development

NLITe™ is an innovative technology platform for the lighting industry that enables substantial energy savings and produces aesthetically pleasing light. The technology can be applied to any lighting fixture, from traditional fluorescents to energy-saving LEDs. For more information, please see our webpage.

Biomass Cookstove


Early-stage development

We are developing a thermoelectric-based cookstove for generating electricity more efficiently from burning biomass and other fuel sources. A safer and more portable stove helps to lessen health effects of indoor smoke. This technology is the result of our research into reducing smoke inhalation-related deaths in developing countries. See Biomass Cookstoves and Human Health for more information.
