UTRC conformable fuel tank featured in Hartford Business Journal

HARTFORD, Connecticut – UTRC's groundbreaking work on its conformable natural gas vehicle storage tank is featured as the lead story of the Hartford Business Journal's May 30 edition.

The article spotlights the Research Center's innovative engineering behind the tank, and the licensing agreement with Adsorbed Natural Gas Products Inc. to develop and produce the first commercially viable adsorbent-based, low-pressure natural gas storage tank for motor vehicles.

"This particular application is for natural gas, but really the technology is for pressure vessels, so if there is a need to store pressurized gas or liquid inside a container and we wanted to maximize the usage of the space, this is the technology," Ellen Sun, project leader for the tank's development, said in the article. "This is essentially applicable for any application where a pressure vessel or pressure device is needed and space is a premium."
