Ramaco Carbon partners with US DOE lab to develop high-value products from coal

Ramaco Carbon LLC agreed to partner with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the U.S. Department of Energy's largest science and energy laboratory in the country, to develop high-value, advanced carbon products and materials from coal.

Under a five-year cooperative research and development agreement, the Wyoming-based company will collaborate with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory on new projects that use coal as a manufacturing feedstock for carbon fibers, building products and composites. The project will also target electrodes for energy storage devices and new materials for additive manufacturing, including large-scale 3D printing.

Ramaco Carbon and the DOE's Office of Fossil Energy will co-fund the research, according to a June 2 news release. The two groups have been working on related research under separate agreements for nearly four years, Ramaco Carbon said.

The DOE rolled out a $56.5 million program in September 2019 to fund 32 new research projects on uses for coal.

Ramaco Carbon is building a facility in West Virginia to research the use of coal as a precursor for advanced carbon products and materials. It was the second research facility planned by the company, next to a project in Wyoming to research carbon-based products made from coal.

Ramaco Carbon operates under the same umbrella as metallurgical coal producer Ramaco Resources Inc.
