UT Austin to Co-Lead $20 Million NSF Center Aimed at Converting Natural Gas Into Transportation Fuels
Engineers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have been selected to help lead a five-year, $20 million National Science Foundation engineering research center aimed at developing new mobile technologies for converting natural gas into transportation fuels near rural natural gas sites.
Chemical engineers at the University of Notre Dame will contribute their expertise in materials development and modeling to a new research center that will focus on new methods of converting shale gas reserves into chemicals and transportation fuel.
Northwestern University is a key partner in the new Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources (CISTAR). Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by Purdue University, the engineering research center will develop new technologies to produce fuels from US shale-gas deposits that could inject $20 billion annually into the economy.
The University of New Mexico is part of a new National Science Foundation-funded engineering research center that will develop new technologies to produce fuels from U.S. shale gas deposits that could inject $20 billion annually into the economy. UNM researchers will partner with lead institution Purdue University in the Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources, or CISTAR, which will be based at Purdue.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has invested nearly $80 million in four new Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) to create novel technology platforms to address national challenges in health and energy sustainability.
