In collaboration, the University of Oklahoma has taken the lead in a Department of Energy project, with support from Kansas State University, to pioneer a new generation of reversible electrochemical cells. The cells have the potential to revolutionize energy storage by integrating seamlessly with fossil fuel assets.

Javad Asadi, School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, 

Topic: “Flexible Design and Operation of Carbon Capture Technologies for Optimal Integration with Low-Carbon Power Generation System.”

Intelligent, Universal, Low-Cost Emissions Reduction Retrofit Kit for Industrial Engines – The University of Oklahoma (Norman, Oklahoma) plans to develop an intelligent, remotely controlled, low-cost emissions reduction retrofit kit for industrial engines used mainly in the upstream and midstream of the oil and gas industry. https://www.energy.gov/fecm/project-selections-foa-2616-innovative-methane-measurement-monitoring-and-mitigation

Non-DOE Funding: $333,191
Total Value: $1,332,631

Our collaboration with Bedrock Ventures has garnered substantial support from the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST) for the development of the FIRST HYDROGEN-CNG FUELING STATION IN OKLAHOMA. This establishes Oklahoma as one of the pioneering states adopting this groundbreaking technology. We have launched hydrogen research at University of Oklahoma and are pleased to witness the positive impact of our efforts.

Highly Replicable and Integrated System for Mitigating Methane Emissions from Natural Gas-Fired Lean-Burn Engines – Kansas State University (Manhattan, Kansas) and University of Oklahoma plan to manufacture a low-cost integrated system for eliminating methane emissions from natural gas engines. The technology may be designed to mitigate methane emissions from all industrial engines and reduce their operational costs and fuel consumption while enhancing stability and efficiency. I

DOE Funding: $1,000,000
Non-DOE Funding: $250,000
Total Value: $1,250,000

The University of Oklahoma (OU), in cooperation with NETL and industry partners, has developed an advanced retrofit kit for natural gas engines used in the gas production, gathering, transmission and processing sectors that cut emissions while enhancing performance.

This National Consortium will provide a forum to enable stakeholders across the LDES ecosystem to convene & identify barriers, determine potential synergies, and collaboratively develop & recommend strategies necessary to achieve commercialization for a wide range of LDES technologies within the next decade. The output will be a comprehensive set of recommendations for LDES commercialization that can be offered to diverse states & regions, markets, communities, and end-use customers.

Our proposal has been selected for the Phase 1 study with potential advancement to Phase 2. Our team plans to design, analyze, and validate a novel bifunctional chemical looping concept that utilizes a perovskite-based oxide as an oxygen carrier. This innovative approach will be employed to produce chemicals and mitigate CO2 emissions during both reduction and oxidation steps
