The Catalysis for Renewable Fuels Center is developing catalysts that allow fuels to be produced from renewable sources. These new catalysts are the next wellhead as the transportation sector moves to less dependence on imported oil and carbon fuel.
Work associated with this Center has led to the creation of a startup company, Palmetto Fuel Cell Technologies. The Catalysis for Renewable Fuels Center also serves as a resource for recruiting activities in the Midlands of South Carolina for companies associated with renewable fuels, fuel cells and alternative energy sources.
