Molecular Knowledge System’s Dr. Kevin Joback is a winner of the Praxair New Helium
Applications Contest. The contest was sponsored by Praxair, a leader in industrial
gases, and hosted by global innovation firm NineSigma. The contest’s goal was to
find novel ways of using helium to generate value in new or existing processes. After
a worldwide search Praxair selected three finalists each of whom was awarded 30,000 USD. Dr.
Joback used our unique physical property based approach to identify an application that
takes advantage of some of helium’s unique physical properties and has the potential for
creating a valuable new market for the specialty gas.
