LOS ALAMOS, New Mexico, March 14, 2012—Innovative water and energy technologies created by U.S. scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory now have a new development option for bringing their inventions to market. Today, New Mexico-based IX Power LLC signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Laboratory for commercializing new water and energy technologies.

“Los Alamos has fostered numerous important inventions that have had a positive impact on our economy and our planet,” said IX Power CEO John R. Grizz Deal. “This CRADA will improve the efficiency with which we continue that work and open more doors for LANL technologies to have an even larger impact on the way the U.S., and even the rest of the world, ensuring clean water and clean power for future generations.”

Some of the projects that will be immediately affected and propelled at LANL by the signing of the CRADA include new technologies for cleaning “produced water” from the oil and gas industry, planning tools for improving power grids and introducing alternative energy systems, and modeling tools for human resource development and management at nuclear and other types of power plants.

“Our Laboratory is proud to begin a partnership with IX Power,” said Los Alamos Technology Transfer Division Leader David Pesiri.

“This is a team with a strong track record in the business world and a demonstrated talent for building value from national laboratory technologies. Our team is particularly pleased with this company’s emphasis on domestic technology solutions in the areas of water, power grid and alternative energy,” Pesiri said.

CRADA’s are government agreements that allow federal laboratories to work with private U.S. companies to help commercialize federally developed technology. This ability to pool and optimize resources with private industry was created with the passing of the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Transfer Act of 1980 and its amendment the Federal Technology Transfer Act of 1986.
