Purdue University and the Purdue Research Foundation have announced a new partnership with West Lafayette-based Swift Fuels. The university says the collaboration will work to develop and commercialize new fuel-related technologies.
Per the agreement, researchers at Purdue’s Davidson School of Chemical Engineering will work closely with Swift Fuels on value-enhancing approaches to fuel.
“This collaboration is ideal for Swift Fuels because it gives us access to world-class researchers to help advance our technologies,” said Chris D’Acosta, chief executive officer of Swift Fuels, in a news release.
The five-year collaborative agreement is supported through public-private partnership initiatives with Purdue’s Davidson School of Chemical Engineering and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and entitles Swift to rights to technologies created through the partnership.
