Cogent Energy Systems today announced that it was selected through a competitive application process to collaborate with the Biomass Feedstock National User Facility (BFNUF) at Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Through this project, INL will optimize feedstock preparation and handling for Cogent’s HelioStorm™ gasification system, which is designed for small scale waste-to-energy applications. This partnership is made possible through the U.S. Department of Energy Small Business Voucher (SBV) program, which facilitates access to the DOE national labs for American small businesses. This is Cogent’s second DOE-funded collaboration with INL. Further, Cogent holds licenses to several INL patents that undergird the company’s innovative gasifier technology.
