DRY EXTRACTION OF SILICON AND ALUMINUM FROM LUNAR ORES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dr Rudolf Keller , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $125,000.00
Abstract:
The feasibility of a process concept to manufacture silicon,aluminum, other metals, and oxygen from lunar resources is investigated. focus will be on a process step in which aluminum metal is used as a reductant and on the separation of the resulting product.

SEPARATION OF MAGNESIUM FROM ALUMINUM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $40,000.00
Abstract:
To develop a process to refine aluminum scrap, salt composition to remove magnesium from molten aluminum will be selected. the process shall have advantages in regard to environmental and health hazards over presently considered approaches, and the salt composition shall permits its electrochemical… More

PRODUCTION OF OXYGEN BY ELECTROLYSIS OF LUNAR SOIL IN MOLTEN SALT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Rudolf Keller , Doctor
Award Amount: $50,000.00

SUPPRESSION OF CYANIDE FORMATION IN HALL PROCESS POTLINING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I

Award Amount: $50,000.00

PRODUCTION OF OXYGEN BY ELECTROLYSIS OF LUNAR SOIL IN MOLTEN SALT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Rudolf Keller , Doctor
Award Amount: $488,000.00
Abstract:
Costs for missions in space can be reduced significantly by utilizing lunar resources. considering the great interest in the availability of oxygen, we propose to investigate its electrolytic production from molten salt. this process uses lunar soil with minimum or no beneficiation and does not… More

SUPPRESSION OF CYANIDE FORMATION IN HALL PROCESS POTLINING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Rudolf Keller
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Spent potlining from industrial primary aluminum production cells is a designated hazardous material because of its cyanide content. over 100,000 tons of this material are annually landfilled in the united states. it would be desirable to avoid the formation of cyanide during the operation of the… More

NOVEL APPROACH TO THE ELECTROLYSIS OF OXIDES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $497,610.00
Abstract:
Electrolysis of lunar oxides dissolved in a molten electrolyte is a promising approach to producing oxygen on the moon for propulsion and sustaining human life. molten fluorides have been considered to be electrolytes in the past, because of their relatively low melting point and their high specific… More

OXYGEN-EVOLVING ANODES FOR THE ELECTROLYSIS OF CALCIUM OXIDE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr Rudolf Keller
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
Electrochemical reduction of calcium oxide is an effective step in the processing of spent nuclear fuels by the salt transport process. it is desirable to conduct this electrolysis with oxygen-evolving anodes, thereby avoiding carbon contamination, but the feasibility of this approach has not yet… More

DETOXIFICATION OF SPENT HALL CELL POTLINING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Rudolf Keller
Award Amount: $64,820.00
Abstract:
Cyanide forms in the lining of aluminum production cells due to the reaction ofcarbon, sodium and nitrogen. It is proposed it mix spent potling, a solid andhazardous waste, withmoderate temperatures to form environmentally benign compounds. The envisionedprocess will be suited for the in-situ… More
