Hoeven Announces Nearly $2.5 Million in Funding for UND's Energy & Environmental Research Center

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Energy and Appropriations Committees, today announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded a nearly $2.5 million grant to the Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) at the University of North Dakota (UND). The funds will be used for a project to reduce energy use during the production of ammonia.

“EERC’s project will help cut energy use and costs associated with creating ammonia, and could hold many benefits for commercial and agriculture industries,” said Hoeven. “The potential benefits of this project are among the reasons why it was one of 24 projects selected across the nation by DOE today to receive funding.”
