Vaidyanathan is working with Infinite Composites Technologies on developing a cryogenic composite engineered laminated tank, known as CryoCEL.

"The ideal application for this project is for transporting fuels that require storage at low temperatures." Vaidyanathan said. "The new tank will be more economical because of its lighter weight and ability to conserve fuel by preventing boil-off."

OSU-Tulsa and ICT, formerly CleanNG, signed a facility use agreement last fall that provides the company access to the Helmerich Research Center's Next Generation Materials Lab at OSU- Tulsa. …
