Project on Advanced Storage for Gaseous Fuels Receives $1 Million from Department of Energy


Project on advanced storage for gaseous fuels receives $1 million from department of energyThe U.S. Department of Energy announced $50 million in funding would be awarded to innovative research of technologies for trucks, off-road vehicles, and the fuels that power them.  A total of 24 projects were chosen to be supported and that included the project of ME Professor, Donald Segiel, who collaborated with Adam Matzger in Chemistry, and the Savanah River National Lab. 

Their project focuses on the advanced storage for gaseous fuels and is titled, “Optimal Adsorbents for Low-Cost Storage of Natural Gas: Computational Identification, Experimental Demonstration, and System-Level Projection.” Funded through the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), all the selections highlight the DOE’s priorities in gaseous fuels research, including natural gas, biopower, and hydrogen; heavy-duty freight electrification; hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell technologies for heavy-duty applications; and energy-efficient off-road vehicles.
