We care about our home and as such, we are keen to apply our knowledge and skill sets to improve our environment. In particular, energy capture, production and processing often requires the application of high temperatures. Also, environments can be challenging; often being oxidative, reducing or radioactive. The choice of thermal/chemical barrier materials can be critical. This is not only critical to new or emerging technologies but to the improvement of older and existing technology in an effort to improve efficiencies and/or reduce emissions. We have been involved with several investigations with the DOE, private industry, and academia. We would welcome evaluation to see if we would be a fit for your proposed project focused on environmental improvement. Our research and development principles are based on the scientific method and critical thinking.
