Joint Center for Deployment and Research in Earth Abundant Materials

The Joint Center for Deployment and Research in Earth Abundant Materials or “JCDREAM” is a collaborative and transformative program of research, development, deployment, and training in earth-abundant materials science, engineering, and advanced manufacturing. JCDREAM will accelerate the development of next-generation clean energy and transportation technologies in Washington State.


  • Provide national industrial supply-chain security
  • Ensure economic sustainability
  • Deliver sound environmental stewardship

JCDREAM Funded Facilities

The state of Washington provided $2 million in seed funding for JCDREAM to purchase the capital equipment necessary for high-end materials research in areas that satisfy the center’s mission. The funds have been used to purchase three unique systems that are generally available to industry, academic, and government laboratory researchers. 

The following systems have been established for researchers at standard charge rates. Please contact the relevant individual at each site for pricing and scheduling information as well as seeking additional details.
