Federal Awards

ADEM was awarded several SBIR grants to develop nanomaterials for applications in lithium ion batteries and catalysis. During the course of these projects, ADEM developed a variety of nanowire-based materials, HDS catalyst products, metal oxide alloys and manufacturing processes for bulk scale production of materials. The awards resulted in several US patents in pending.
