CSSM research activities include a strong component of innovation and drive to develop practical solutions to critical metals separations problems. We routinely file university invention disclosures and patents for work developed in the Center.

For example, Center members in the Stoddart group have worked with scientists and business people for the development of sustainable gold mining technologies at Cycladex. Information about this innovative gold processing technology can be found on the Cycladex website here.

If you are interested in industry partnership with CSSM, please contact guron@sas.upenn.edu.


The CSSM is committed to connecting with community partners to discuss important issues around critical metals while sharing our research.  We are proud to share programming with these partners:
