Award List:

Hydrogen Separation from a Logistic-Fuel Reformate Stream

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Reinder Boersma, Manager Systems Group
Award Amount: $69,909.00
Abstract:
A two step reforming process for diesel type fuels with high sulfur content is proposed. In the first step the fuel is passed through an electric arc, as a result of which the fuel decomposes into mainly hydrogen carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and water. To prevent soot formation a certain amount… More

Hydrogen Separation from a Logistic-Fuel Reformate Stream

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Reinder J. Boersma, Manager Systems Engineeri
Award Amount: $499,303.00
Abstract:
Proposed is a reactor capable of generating a pure hydrogen stream from a gasified stream of military logistic fuels such as JP-5 and JP-8. The objective is to build a reactor that generates a hydrogen stream with a heating value of 5-10 kW. The process is based on a novel type of ceramic membrane… More

Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: Greg Howell
Abstract:
CellTech Power will continue the development of the Liquid Tin Anode Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (LTA-SOFC) operating directly on JP-8. In this program, a 125 Watt Direct JP-8 stack will be built using CellTech's proven Gen 3.1 cell design. Modular panels of

Liquid Tin Anode Direct Coal Fuel Cell

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Thomas Tao, Dr.
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
Although most power produced in the U.S. comes from coal, the environmental footprint of coal has made it difficult to site and build new plants. Many new options for coal power generation involve techniques to capture CO2 emissions, but these often require additional costly and inefficient process… More
