Icorium Engineering Company
Icorium Engineering Company is blazing a trail in recycling refrigerants. The spin-out company from the University of Kansas designs separation systems to handle complex refrigerant mixtures. Refrigerants, like those used in air conditioners and grocery store coolers, are being phased out because of global warming concerns, and the technology to separate the refrigerant mixtures and reuse the components in new products hasn’t existed. That is until Kalin Baca, Ph.D., MBA and Professor Mark Shiflett teamed up at KU.
The internet was a much different place in 1992. Still in its infancy as a public network, the term “surfing the internet” was coined and popularized that year. The New York Times had yet to write a single article about the World Wide Web or the first browser, and the launch of Amazon.com was still two years away. But in Kansas, the public universities across the state collaborated to create KanREN, a pioneer in research and education networks.
Foster Care Technologies
Foster Care Technologies started at KU Innovation Park with an idea for a foster child placement service. The Park’s analyst team examined the market and financial opportunities for the business, then validated the algorithm and technology through a partnership with KU’s School of Social Welfare researchers.
