New Mexico’s two U.S. Senators issued separate announcements about funding for a pair of collaborative research and development projects at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

DOE has awarded Los Alamos National Laboratory $1.6 million to team with Chevron and the University of Minnesota “on research related to enhanced separation efficiency in the distillation of olefin and paraffin.”

The lab is expected to provide an additional $400,000 to meet the grant's cost-sharing requirement, according to the release from the office of Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M.

An additional $1.44 million grant, supplemented by $360,000 from LANL will be used in collaboration with the Pall Corporation to develop polymer-based membranes to separate hydrogen and carbon dioxide from shifted synthetic gas and reduce the energy requirement.

“Los Alamos National Laboratory is the home of important R&D and I am pleased the federal government is making this funding available to help advance these two projects,” said Sen. Jeff Bingaman, chairman of the Senate Energy and Water Committee.
