Battelle has landed two awards from R&D Magazine for the nonprofit company’s software platform that works to analyze pipeline condition and method to convert coal into synthetic crude.
The company said Tuesday its PipeAssess PI software and coal-to-liquids process won R&D Awards, while its partnership with the Ohio Soybean Council, Redwood Innovations and Kentucky State University received special recognition for the EnzoMeal technology.
PipeAssess PI employs physics-based empirical modeling tool designed to estimate remaining pipeline lifetime and axial crack growth in efforts to help reduce oil spill incidents.
Battelle created its coal liquefaction process to produce jet or transportation fuel products from biomass-derived solvents.
R&D Magazine also recognized national laboratories that Battelle helps manage for the Energy Department with a total of 23 awards for efforts to develop various technologies such as magnets, batteries, vehicle materials and gunshot detection systems.
