Battelle

Battelle and Catahoula Resources announced on Tuesday that the two companies have formed a partnership to develop solutions for the capture, transport and sequestration of carbon dioxide produced at ethanol facilities in Nebraska. 

“Battelle has a long history in geologic carbon sequestration and views it as a technology to make a real difference in mitigating CO2 emissions,” said Matt Vaughan, executive vice president of Contract Research at Battelle. 

Catahoula and Battelle plan to design and build multiple low-cost storage options either onsite or close to existing ethanol plants where the geology proves to be favorable. Nebraska ethanol producers can benefit from nearby low-cost storage options, eliminating added pipeline expenses or the uncertainty in delivering CO2 to out-of-state storage networks. 

“Catahoula’s ability to move quickly and deliver large energy projects cost-effectively fits well with Battelle’s technical expertise and ability to minimize and manage long term subsurface storage risk through the injection phase and until closure,” Vaughan added.

USAF, Boeing to Use VR in T-7A Red Hawk Technical Order Verification; Fred Tschirner Quoted

The U.S. Air Force plans to certify the T-7A Red Hawk aircraft's technical orders via methods that rely on virtual reality and 3D modeling. The effort's assigned team and its partners at Boeing will use the latter's virtual reality technology to certify the technical orders in a way that mitigates risks, Air Force Materiel Command said Friday.
