Phase Change Materials program to begin with DOE Phase I Award

Tetramer is proud to announce the receipt of a Department of Energy Phase I award to develop improved and more cost-effective Phase Change Materials.

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) are a green alternative for energy storage and supply in buildings. PCMs absorb thermal energy as they melt and then release that energy when ambient temperatures fall below the PCMs’ melt point. By accumulating free solar energy during the day to help reduce building cooling ...

Hand Sanitizer Produced by Tetramer for Clemson and Pendleton Areas

“We’re an advanced materials research company and not a hand sanitizer producer, but we saw this need and knew we were uniquely suited to helping out.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, hand sanitizer has been in short supply.  As distilleries and other non-traditional hand sanitizer producers have ramped up production, it is not clear when the supply shortage will end. When Tetramer CEO, ...

Tetramer Membranes for Solar Fuels Generators – New DOE Phase II Awarded

The Tetramer team is excited to begin work on a new Phase II award from the Department of Energy to develop improved membranes for solar fuels generators.  

Solar fuels generators can be thought of as performing artificial photosynthesis.  Generators harness solar energy to produce hydrogen from water or to produce carbon-based fuels from water and carbon dioxide in a manner analogous to plants.

Tetramer Awarded Phase I DOE Contract for Solar Fuels Generators

Tetramer has been awarded a Phase I DOE Contract (DE-SC0019560) to develop Improved Membranes for Solar Fuels Generators.
Solar fuels generators harness solar energy as the power source to facilitate the generation of either hydrogen or carbon based fuels. In both cases, water is electrochemically oxidized to produce oxygen, protons and electrons at the anode. Hydrogen or carbon based fuels are produced simultaneously at the cathode by the reduction of protons or carbon dioxide, respectively. Ion exchange membranes are a ...
