The Energy Processes and Materials Division focuses on three mission contributions:

Clean Fossil Energy [+ expand/ - collapse]

Electricity Infrastructure [+ expand/ - collapse]

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy [+ expand/ - collapse]

Our expert staff provide multi-disciplinary solutions to complex energy and environmental issues. Key capabilities include science (chemical and mechanical). We employ a systems perspective that includes, discovery technology development and scale-up as well as economic, regulatory, and market acceptance issues necessary for successful technology commercialization.

Key business lines

  • biomass conversion
  • solid state lighting
  • energy storage
  • catalysis
  • coal conversion and carbon capture
  • economics and systems analysis
  • lightweight materials and catalysts for vehicles
  • hydrogen production and storage.
