Reaction Design Gets $817K Grant

10/20/09

The Department of Energy is awarding an $817,384 grant to San Diego-based Reaction Design, which uses advanced computer-based modeling technology to simulate the fiery combustion reactions in turbines and other engines. The grant from the DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory is one of seven awards totaling $7 million that are intended to advance highly efficient electric power generation technologies with near-zero emissions. Reaction Design, which I profiled in June, says it is developing new simulation technology to improve the performance of next-generation coal-powered systems.
