National Security Technology Transfer Opportunities

Idaho National Laboratory (INL), operated by the Battelle Energy Alliance, LLC (BEA) under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is offering the opportunity commercialize a unique method developed by the lab to remove mercury vapor from a selected environment.

This novel technology has been developed primarily for the removal of mercury vapor using new and unique chemistry with the following potential benefits:

  • Expedite hazardous material clean-up
  • Safer processes and work conditions
  • Provide higher quality mercury vapor removal
  • Provide an easier method for mercury vapor removal
  • Reduce costs of environmental clean-up

This technology has been tested on the bench scale. Additional development will be required to demonstrate a pilot scale process.

INL is seeking industry partners to continue to develop and commercialize this unique technology are requested to provide a statement of interest by Aug 30, 2015.

Further details are available via Solicitation Number: INL-TD-15-006.
