When Casey McNeil and the rest of the REEcycle team were competing at the 2016 Texas A&M New Ventures Competition (TNVC), they had received some positive feedback, but still weren’t sure they were going to receive funding from the National Science Foundation.
Now, a year later, the team has not only received funding, but is closing in on opening a pilot production facility in Houston.
It does not require a force as powerful as the sun to get Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin to work together, but it certainly helps. The institutions, along with Texas A&M University-Central Texas and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, are officially collaborating on a major solar research initiative following the awarding of a new grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
