Gasification and emerging bioenergy technologies are cornerstones of WRI’s research and development. Our novel approaches to energy generation and waste management are garnering attention. We are advancing the production of fuels through biomass gasification, coal gasification, thermochemical production of liquid fuels, and substitute natural gas from coal. WRI’s leadership in applied microbial fuel cell research is helping simultaneously reduce organic contaminants and generate electricity. In addition, WRI is introducing Biogenic Methane Enhancement, a method to significantly extend coalbed methane production.  WRI houses numerous one-of-a-kind laboratories for testing and simulating innovative technologies.
