Grant awarded to Professors Yavuzturk, Filburn, and Mahan

Cy Yavuzturk, Tom Filburn and Eric Mahan (Chemistry) have been awarded a $46,000 STTR grant from NASA.  This project will team with the catalyst development company PCI (North Haven, CT), to develop an improved CO2, trace contaminant and humidity control system for future NASA space suits. The figure above shows the support material developed by PCI that will permit fast kinetics and low pressure drop within the new contaminant capture system. The program is employing 1 undergraduate ME student, and expects to add a 2nd undergraduate research student during the summer of 2012.
