The Microproducts Breakthrough Institute, collaboratively managed by Oregon State University and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, is committed to the development of micro- and nano-technologies for sustainable energy, healthy environments and improved lives.

The institute houses laboratories for research and development, fabrication facilities and office space. Ideas in the micro and nano area are developed and matured from concept to commercialization. Core competencies include microchannel heat and mass transfer processes, energy systems, microreactor technologies, nanoparticle synthesis, and fabrication of microchannel components.

PNNL and OSU are leaders in the science, engineering and technology of miniature processes and systems. Our capabilities are mature and complementary. In addition, we collaborate on R&D projects. So, the partnership in the MBI is an obvious answer to providing the best service to our current and future clients.

The MBI seeks to successfully deploy technical advances that will lead to educational and economic benefits to the region. Finally, the MBI seeks to model the way in which technology development is conducted through the collaboration of federal laboratories and universities.
