Wang Teams with Others to Invent More Efficient Hydrogen Separation

April 2005
Congratulations to ETD's Yong Wang, Velocys' Jeff McDaniel, Sean Fitzgerald, Steven Perry, Lee Tonkovich, and Wayne Simmons, and BCO's Chip Weller, Bruce Monzyk, and Chad Cucksey, and Saint-Gobain NorPro's David VanderWiel! The team received a U.S. patent (#6,824,592) for inventing a thermal swing method of gas separation specifically applicable to hydrogen separation. This method increases the efficiency of hydrogen separation for application in fuel cells, hydrogen treating, hydrogen refinery, and anywhere high-purity hydrogen is needed. Again, congratulations!
