DOE-funded research projects win 46 R&D 100 Awards for 2009
Date:7/24/2009

WASHINGTON, DC U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced today that Energy Department-funded researchers have won 46 of the 100 awards given out this year by R&D Magazine for the most outstanding technology developments with promising commercial potential. The coveted awards are presented annually in recognition of exceptional new products, processes, materials or software developed throughout the world and introduced into the market the previous year.

"The Department of Energy's national laboratories are incubators of innovation, and I'm proud they are being recognized once again for their remarkable work," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "The cutting-edge research and development being done in our national labs is vital to maintaining America's competitive edge, increasing our nation's energy security, and protecting our environment. I want to thank this year's winners for their work and congratulate them on this award."

These awards highlight some of the successes made by the DOE national laboratories in technology transfer, moving forward basic research results into commercial products.

This year, scientists and engineers from 12 of the 17 DOE National Laboratories as well as the Nevada Test Site received awards. Since 1962, when R&D Magazine's annual competition began, DOE has been the recipient of over 800 R&D 100 awards in areas such as energy, national security and basic scientific applications.

R&D 100 awards are selected by an independent panel of judges based on the technical significance, uniqueness and usefulness of projects and technologies from across industry, government and academia. The complete list of R&D 100 awards is available online at www.rdmag.com.
