About Us who we are


MSE Technology Applications, Inc. (MSE) was formed to test and demonstrate Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) technology at a new federally owned research site in Butte, MT (the U.S. DOE Western Environmental Technology Office (WETO).

Through the 1970 and mid-1980s, we broadened our scope in response to increased regional demand for engineering services and for more significant research and testing of the MHD technology. As we completed testing the MHD technology (sponsored by the Department of Energy), we began to explore opportunities to diversify our business base. MSE successfully shifted into testing, demonstration, and commercial application of waste treatment systems using temperature technologies and advanced chemical, biological, and physical processes.

In September 1996, MSE acquired and successfully privatized the WETO facility. In 2001 the facility was renamed the Mike Mansfield Advanced Technology Center in honor of Senator Mike Mansfield, and it has become a nationally recognized facility.

Today, we serve both Government and private industries providing engineering services and testing resources. Who are we? We are committed professionals working hard for our customers -- working hard for you.
