Dow Chemical: Grants for Methane Research

The Dow Chemical Company announced that Cardiff University and Northwestern University have been awarded research grants which together total over USD 6.4 million as part of the 2007 Dow Methane Challenge. The challenge was initiated by Dow in March 2007 to identify collaborators and approaches in the area of methane conversion to chemicals. The awards to the teams led by Cardiff and Northwestern mark the culmination of the selection process.

Methane is particularly attractive as a raw material because of the presence of large reserves of natural gas in many parts of the world, but the technology for the conversion of these reserves to chemicals and liquid fuels remains elusive. Dow’s goal is to develop technologies to take natural gas and produce the intermediates that form the foundation of today’s chemical industry.
