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.

March 2018

In March 2018 Bettergy and its partners at University of Cincinnati were issued a patent by the United States Patent Office for an Inorganic Microporous Ion Exchange Membrane for Redox Flow Batteries.

January 2018

In January 2018 Bettergy was awarded an SBIR contract by the Department of Defense for development of a Novel High Energy Density Primary Battery for Military Applications.

September 2017

    In September 2017, Bettergy was awarded a Phase II SBIR contract by the Department of Defense for the Development of a Safe, High Energy Density Power Source for Undersea Applications.  The battery is very high energy density, low cost, safe and adaptable to different form factors for undersea applications.

May 16, 2017

On May 16, 2017 the United States Patent Office issued a patent for Bettergy's Novel Composite Membranes for Olefin/Paraffin Separation.

December 15, 2016

ARPA-E announced that Bettergy has one of the 16 projects that is to receive funding under ARPA-E's REFUEL Program.  Bettergy's project is the development of a system to "crack" ammonia, using a non-precious metal catalyst at temperatures below 450oC.  If successful the technology will transform the process of hydrogen production, providing low-cost, on-demand generating options for hydrogen refueling stations.  ARPA-E REFUEL Announcement
