Columbus Business First talks Simple-Fill's new funding and CNG refueling at homePosted: 5 Feb 2014

Center for Automotive Research's latest spinout, Simple-Fill, is featured in Columbus Business First's article CNG startup Simple-Fill lands funding from Ohio State, Third Frontier. It was just announced that Simple-Fill has received an initial investment from TechColumbus' Technology Concept Fund, a funding pool for developing licensed technologies from The Ohio State University.

"Simple-Fill began its development after employees from the Center for Automotive Research applied for a CNG grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The center didn’t get the grant but the technology was still of interest to entrepreneurs such as [president Rob] Underhill, who has previous startup experience...TechColumbus put him in touch with the Center for Automotive Research, which licensed the technology to Simple-Fill, and the company started work about a year ago."
