Morgan State University Signs Its First-Ever Technology Transfer License Agreement

Morgan State University, the historically Black educational institution in Baltimore, recently executed a technology licensing contract with Cykloburn Technologies. It is the first technology licensing transfer agreement in the university’s history.

The technology, which was developed by the research staff in the Center for Advanced Energy Systems and Environmental Control Technologies in the School of Engineering at Morgan State, is an ultra-clean mobile combustor for waste biomass and poultry litter disposal. The technology addresses two significant societal needs: managing environmentally damaging pollution from excess poultry farm litter and generating energy — both electricity and heat — from renewable resources.

The technology represents a significant value proposition to individual poultry farmers, by ridding them of poultry waste, creating electricity for operations, and providing heat for poultry houses.

“We are pleased to partner with Morgan State University to bring this potentially game-changing technology to market,” says Rob Meissner, CEO of Cykloburn Technologies. “This technology addresses a significant environmental concern, improves farmers’ profitability and will be attractive to poultry farmers across the country.”
