Battelle’s highly specialized solutions include predictive data gather and utilization and chemistry and biology expertise to target investments and mitigate problems created by corrosion and other conditions.


PipeAssess PI™
Estimate remaining pipeline life and predict axial crack growth under various operating scenarios with Battelle PipeAssess P.I. This innovative software can be used for all standard oil and gas transmission and distribution line-pipe sizes and grades to ensure regulatory compliance and to guide investment in infrastructure improvement. Learn more.

This record-breaking software enables AUVs to detect and track a pipeline using existing payload sensors. The technology allows for improved inspection data, time-reductions due to fewer repeat missions and has the ability to reason logically when faced with multiple pipelines or unexpected burials. Learn more.

CoPilot remote operated vehicle (ROV) software allows a pilot to quickly plan a mission, allowing for greater control and accuracy. CoPilot permits pilot controlled auto-transit and stop-and-hover while providing automated sonar tracking and movement relative to a target, allowing the vehicle to inspect a point of interest with greater precision. Learn more.


Our services include:

Risk Assessment
Understand and predict how your pipeline components will perform under certain operating conditions. Whether that is predicting anomaly growth and the subsequent reduction in pipe integrity or understanding threats of third party extrusion, seismic loads, or otherwise external loads, we give you accurate, objective data so you can make confident decisions about infrastructure investment. Learn more.

Corrosion Detection, Prevention and Mitigation
Protect your pipelines from the dangers of corrosion. Battelle is working to expand the understanding of corrosion processes and develop new technologies and materials that resist degradation in even the harshest environments. Learn more.

DOE labs where Battelle plays a management role win 23 awards

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Nov. 21, 2017)—Battelle won two of the recently announced R&D 100 Awards for its PipeAssess PITM software and coal-to-liquids process. In addition, Battelle was on a team with the Ohio Soybean Council, Kentucky State University and Redwood Innovations that won Special Recognition for a technology called EnzoMeal.

The national labs Battelle has a role in managing for the U.S. Department of Energy won a total of 23 awards, either individually or in collaboration with other labs and partners. The technologies include innovations such as more powerful magnets, better batteries, lighter vehicle materials and gunshot detection systems.

  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory – 9 awards. Learn more here.
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – 7 awards. Learn more here.
  • Pacific Northwest National Laboratory – 7 awards. Learn more here.
  • Brookhaven and Idaho national laboratories each had a technology named as a finalist.

Since R&D Magazine started the awards 55 years ago, Battelle and its affiliated national labs have won a total of 380 R&D 100 Awards. Known as the “Oscars of Innovation” in the science and technology world, the annual awards recognize the most significant technologies the nation’s scientists and engineers create.

This year, the two Battelle winners address challenges that balance the world’s energy needs with environmental concerns.

PipeAssess PI is an innovative software application that uses physics-based, empirically derived modeling to estimate remaining pipeline life and predict axial crack growth under various operating scenarios. The user-friendly, customizable software is designed to help oil and gas pipeline companies meet critical industry requirements and reduce the risk of spills, which lead to financial loss, environmental issues and health concerns.

“As pipelines age, integrity management tools become increasingly important to ensure safety, particularly in high consequence areas,” said Bruce Young, Senior Research Scientist in the Infrastructure & Environment business unit. “Recognition by the industry is one of the greatest forms of endorsement this software can receive and provides justification for continued funding by industry and government.”

Battelle’s coal-to-liquids process uses breakthrough technology to dissolve coal in biomass-derived solvents to produce a synthetic crude at relatively low pressure without external hydrogen. Creating jet or other transportation fuels using this process significantly reduces cost and greenhouse gas emissions.

“We are demonstrating that coal can be used in an environmentally friendly manner and can help reduce dependence on imported crude oil,” said Satya Chauhan, Senior Market Manager in Business Development & Sales. “This award validates the significance of our revolutionary technology and recognizes Battelle’s innovative approach to solve future energy needs.”
