August 2019

Bettergy was awarded a contract by NYSERDA for the further development of Bettergy's ammonia cracking technology.  The technology will enable safe, low temperature, carbon-free on-demand hydrogen generation at refueling stations.  The work is also sponsored by ARPA-E.

July 2019

In July 2019 Bettergy was awarded a Phase II SBIR contract by the Department of Energy to further develop the Company’s Integrated Multichannel Reactor for Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture.

July 2019

In July 2019 Dr. Lin-Feng Li, Dr. Zhong Tang and Guy Longobardo of Bettergy attended the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit in Denver, Colorado.  Bettergy’s ARPA-E project, part of the ARPA-E REFUEL Program, is the development of a system to crack ammonia to enable safe, low temperature, carbon-free on-demand hydrogen generation at hydrogen refueling stations.  Bettergy showcased its ammonia cracking and other technologies at the Summit.

May 2019

In May 2019, the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announced that it had awarded Bettergy an SBIR grant to develop a process to recover lithium from highly mineralized brine while making it possible to reuse and recycle the treated wastewater.

April 2019

In April 2019 Bettergy attended the Department of the Navy FST Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell in Lowell, MA.  Dr. Lin-Feng Li gave a presentation on the Company’s High Energy Density Battery for Undersea Applications. Bettergy received a Certificate of Recognition from Rear Admiral David J. Hahn, Chief of Naval Research, for its efforts in the Navy’s SBIR/STTR Transition Program.

March 2019

In March 2019 Guy Longobardo, Chief Operating Officer of Bettergy, was selected by the Clean Energy Business Network to participate with members of Congress and Congressional staff to discuss the importance of Federal clean energy funding.  Guy stated:  “I am grateful that we have been selected and am looking forward to discussing the importance of federal clean energy funding with federal legislators and other small business owners.  Bettergy has built a talented team to develop clean energy technologies that when completed will lead to job creation in our region.  We are very proud to be among the leaders in a new era of clean energy technology, the goals of which are to improve our National energy security, increase jobs in the energy sector and help move towards a low-carbon, clean energy future.   Sustained federal funding is critical to this effort and to the work being done today by small businesses, national research labs and our universities that will sustain American leadership in the energy sector.”  CEBN Coverage of the Meetings

February 2019

In February 2019 Bettergy was awarded an SBIR contract by the Department of Energy for development of a low cost Ion Selective Membrane for Redox Flow Batteries.

July 2018

In July 2018 Bettergy was awarded an SBIR contract by the Department of Energy to develop the company's Integrated Multichannel Water Gas Shift Membrane Reactor for Pre-combustion Carbon Capture.  The reactor can be used for pre-combustion carbon capture in hydrogen recovery of syngas from biomass or coal gasification and in hydrogen production by natural gas steam reforming.

June 2018

In June 2018 Bettergy was issued a patent by the United States Patent Office for Bettergy's Flexible Ion Conductive Membranes for Batteries.
