Addressing new challenges and opportunities presented by natural gas extraction and conversion

As the economic opportunities for unconventional gas extraction from shale gas formations have increased, so have the technical and environmental challenges related to the practice. Our team is working to ensure that this extraction method can continue to increase domestic energy supply and security without compromising safety or the environment.

We rely on our expertise in the areas of gas separation and contaminant removal, gas conversion to fuels and chemicals, and wastewater treatment in the pursuit of solutions. Our scientists use cutting-edge equipment and test systems to develop process technologies that facilitate small-scale natural gas conversion, as well as storage for automotive and other applications.
