A panel of experts has selected Aither Chemicals as a finalist in the Shale Gas Innovation Contest, which will recognize the top two emerging technologies, product ideas or service concepts most likely to have a significant impact within the natural gas industry.
The contest is organized by the Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Center, an organization “focused on the development of environmentally sound processes for the extraction, utilization, and safe transportation of natural gas resources.” Co-sponsors of the challenge include the Marcellus Shale Coalition, Little Pine Resources, Chesapeake Energy, First National Bank and Schlumberger.
“We’ve developed an ethane processing technology that is more cost effective and energy efficient. It’s exciting to see the natural gas industry and business leaders recognize the potential,” said Parvez Wadia, Aither’s chief scientific officer.
