Onboard Dynamics Featured at White House Demo Day
Onboard Dynamics, an Oregon based alternative fuel technology company, highlighted its natural gas compression capabilities at the first-ever White House Demo Day. The White House Demo Day focused on inclusive entrepreneurship, welcoming startup founders from diverse walks of life and from across the country to showcase their innovations.
Founded to commercialize technology developed by and licensed from Oregon State University (OSU), Onboard Dynamics has received financial support from the U.S. Department of Energy, ONAMI (Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute), Oregon BEST, and OSU, as well as strategic partners and private investors. The company’s first commercial products will be available in mid-2016.
“U.S. policymakers increasingly are evaluating how alternative fuels can impact our country’s overall energy use,” said Rita Hansen, CEO of Onboard Dynamics. “With Onboard Dynamics’ unique natural gas compression technologies, vehicle owners can save money and significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by refueling with natural gas or renewable natural gas instead of traditional fuels.”
