Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: AUBURN UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Bruce J. Tatarchuk, Professor & CM3 Director
Award Amount: $70,000.00
RI Contact: Bruce Tatarchuk
Abstract:
Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) are proposed for detailed analysis to determine their potential to meet future Navy fuel needs by means of highly selective Fischer Tropsch Synthesis (FTS). MFEC are comprised of small grains of supported catalysts (ca. 10-200 micron diameter) entrapped within… More

Analysis&Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Auburn University
Principal Investigator: Hongyun Yang, Senior Scientist – (334) 502-2973
Award Amount: $743,645.00
RI Contact: Bruce J. Tatarchuk
Abstract:
In the Phase I study, IntraMicron found that Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) increased effective thermal conductivity by 3~12 times, improved selectivity and product yield, and significantly reduced the Balance of Plant (BOP) compared with packed beds; Ceramatec prepared novel catalysts for… More

SBIR Phase I: Synergistic Combinations of New Materials&Systems for Scalable Desulfurization of Distributed Biogas Resources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Hongyun Yang
Award Amount: $149,972.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes a fundamentally new means for biogas (landfill gas) desulfurization that produces less waste, allows recycle of recovered sulfur, and provides annualized operating costs a fraction of current practice. Inexpensive biogas cleanup is… More

Advanced thermal management materials and strategies for packaging high rate cylindrical cells and battery packs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Hongyun Yang, Senior R&D Engineer – (334) 502-2973
Award Amount: $149,995.00
Abstract:
Microfibrous media (MFM) composed of sintered micron diameter copper fibers will be evaluated for its ability to transfer heat from cylindrical cell arrays (batteries and capacitors) to cooling coil and heat transfer surfaces. The void volume of the MFM will be from 70 to 90% and the resulting… More

Breakthrough Technology to Advance the Navy"s Great Green Fleet Initiative

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Hongyun Yang, Senior R&D Engineer – (334) 502-2973
Award Amount: $719,082.00
Abstract:
Microfibrous entrapped catalysts (MFECs) made of a thermally conductive fibrous structure containing micron-sized metal fibers will be used to help the Navy to achieve its Great Green Fleet Initiative milestones. MFEC based Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) will convert biomass and/or bio-based carbon… More
