“TechConnect has published more than 10,000 technical papers, connected more than 20,000 innovations with industry partners, provided prospecting to many Fortune 500 technology companies, and supported most every U.S. Science and Technology agency since its inception,” Anderson said. “Showcasing NETL’s technology leadership in carbon capture and conversion technologies at this important networking and business event will help showcase some of the innovations we have made possible to an important gathering of potential commercialization partners.”
