NEW: McGovern Announces Nearly $4 Million for Energy Research at WPI

Tuesday, October 02, 2012


U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern announced today that Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) will receive $3,999,906 for research.

The grant, funded by the United States Department of Energy, will be used for research into membranes and technologies to more efficiently separate hydrogen from coal.

While current technologies do exist to remove hydrogen from coal, the research being conducted at WPI centers on using palladium membranes to more effectively separate high-purity hydrogen.

The funding, a renewal of an earlier $2,506,594 grant, is being awarded through the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, and will be used for research in collaboration being done in collaboration with Membrane Technology and Research in Menlo Park, California; Johnson Matthey in West Chester, Pennsylvania; and T3 Scientific in Blaine, Minnesota.
“This incredible grant is recognition of WPI’s leadership in developing the technologies and processes that will fuel our country and our planet in the years ahead,” said Congressman Jim McGovern.  “The breadth and depth of research being done at WPI  - including in green technology and energy - is virtually unparalleled."
