NuMat Technologies Innovations Grant

American small businesses got nearly a $22 million boost from the Energy Department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. Small businesses are receiving Phase 1 Release II grants that demonstrate technical feasibility for innovations during the first phase of their research

NuMat Technologies (NuMat) of Skokie, IL will determine if innovative, high-efficiency filters can be used to remove impurities from hydrogen gas streams. Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) require high-purity hydrogen fuels that is expensive, and as a result, are preventing widespread adoption of FCEVs. This SBIR seeks to address this problem through the development of low-cost point-of-use filters to purify hydrogen. For more about this grant , click here.
