Wash U team to use $2.3 million grant from DOE for new tech project 

September 15, 2022 |

In Missouri, the Washington University in St. Louis said that the U.S. Department of Energy has awarded a $2.3 million grant to a team led by Zhen He, a professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at the University’s McKelvey School of Engineering.

The project, which also includes researchers from Cornell University, Virginia Tech and Argonne National Laboratory, will develop a technology to upgrade the biogas produced from wastewater bioenergy recovery systems into a gas with more than 95% CH4, or methane. The main goal of the project is to deliver a scalable technology that can upgrade current biogas systems, acting as a bridge to push basic research toward further technological development.

In addition to research partners, Anheuser-Busch InBev will be involved in the early stages as an industrial partner.
