Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will present eight innovative technologies currently available for commercialization during a public event at ORNL on October 17. “From high-temperature alloys to drought-tolerant plant technology to safe impact-resistant electrolytes, our scientists are bringing forth some of the most exciting inventions that could break out as tomorrow’s energy solutions,” said Michael Paulus, director of ORNL’s Technology Transfer Office. ORNL has invested approximately $1.5 million to prepare these technologies for commercialization under the lab’s Technology Innovation Program (TIP). Additional funding may be available for further development in collaboration with a commercial partner. While the one-day showcase is open to the public, registration is required and seating is limited. Each available invention includes a technology summary and video, and some were developed using the lab’s world-class user facilities. Since 2012, TIP has invested more than $9 million in 39 projects, resulting in 28 license agreements and three options.
