New York-based company to develop methane gas fuel cell

The United States government recently awarded Buffalo, N.Y.-based NanoDynamics a $2 million grant to develop a methane gas fuel cell. The grant was awarded as part of an energy and water appropriations bill in the House of Representatives and will help the company develop a fuel cell to keep water treatment plants running in the event of a power outage. The grant will allow the company to add five to 10 engineers to its workforce.
