Title: Chemically and Thermally Resistant Hollow Fibers as Micro Channel Reactors for Process Intensification
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-08ER85064
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Process intensification methodologies are need for the chemical processes and bioprocesses used in a biorefinery, in order to make the biorefinery a viable commercial alternative to the production of fuels and chemicals. Because the molecular mixing of reactants can enhance reactions, it is a key to process intensification. Significant process inefficiencies can occur (especially with highly reactive species) if the ability of some reactant species to meet other reactant species is limited. This project will develop a novel micro channel reactor to enhance chemical reactions. In addition to facilitating the mixing of chemicals at the molecular level, the system will be able to handle both high temperatures and aggressive chemicals, such as O2, H2, F2, O3, NH3, NF3, CO2 and CO. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The technology should significantly enhance productivity and separations associated with chemical reactions in a biorefinery, leading to reduced energy consumption and increased productivity.
