OIT Times: Two OIT Technologies Receive "R&D" Awards for 2000
September 22, 2000
Two OIT-sponsored technologies recently received the prestigious R&D Magazine &D 100 Awards. These include:
- A process to recover and clean flexible polyurethane foam from automobile shredder residue; which, in turn, separates polyurethane foam and cleans it to produce marketable products. This process was developed by Argonne National Laboratory and sponsored by OIT Chemical Team.
- Real-Time Biomass Analysis supported by
OIT Forest Products Team and developed by the National Renewable Energy
Laboratory. The Real-Time Biomass Analysis improves quality control and
optimization in the forest products and paper industries.
