Western Research Institute

Through strategic collaborations with industrial, academic and governmental partners, we work to help meet the need for clean, efficient, affordable and sustainable energy production.  What’s more, we’re developing innovative approaches for remediation and restoration, some of which contribute to energy production. 

Programs and projects we’re engaged in include coal, heavy oil and oil shale upgrading/beneficiation; advanced combustion and gasification; thermochemical processes for the production of liquid fuels from fossil and renewable resources; enabling concepts and technologies for hydrogen-based energy systems; materials performance in advanced energy systems; technologies for the production and use of unconventional feedstocks; mercury mitigation; and the development and testing of distributed and zero-emissions power generation options.

WRI is bringing pioneering solutions to real-world concerns of environmental pollution and renewable energy. For example, we offer biotech processes for the degradation of various wastes, and in other processes, we use organic waste as the starting point for chemical production and the generation of electricity. We are developing and demonstrating a range of technologies for accelerating the reclamation efforts of multiple industries and government. 

Our multidisciplinary scientists and engineers work in partnership with clients and sponsors on projects ranging from simple analyses to multi-million dollar programs covering a score of participating entities.  The complexity of energy and environmental challenges calls for collaboration. WRI offers the necessary elements―experience, expertise, facilities and outside resources―to ensure technology project success.  Call us.
