Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: INITIAL PROJECT TRANSITION METAL SULFIDE (TMS) - DESULFURATIN/HYDROGENATION CATALYSTS.
Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity:
POROCEL INTERNATIONAL, LLC
Program Title: none
The MRTI program with POROCEL involves MRTI preparing Transition Metal Sulfide catalysts that are highly active catalysts prepared through methods patented by UTEP. These catalysts will be tested by POROCEL and put into their sales program as manufactured catalysts. In addition new reactions particularly CO + H2 will be measured on the same TMS catalyst materials. Thus, existing catalytic applications and new catalytic applications are the goal of this program.
