The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  9. Methane Aromatization in a Membrane Reactor

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Aromatic chemicals such as benzene and toluene have traditionally been derived from petroleum- However, shale gas offers a new, large and inexpensive feedstock- Therefore, a more efficient process is needed to convert the United States’ abundance of cheap, but often remotely located natural gas (primarily methane obtained from hydro-fractured shale formations) into more transportable and valuabl ...

  10. Direct Combustion of Fine Coal from Coal Waste

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Fine coal is a coal waste generated by washing the coal at the mines, and contains as much as 80 wt% water- Due to the lack of cost effective approaches to remove the water from fine coal before feeding into a conventional boiler, the coal producers often choose to discard the fine coal- There are already approximately 2 billion tons of fine coal in abandoned ponds and 500~800 million tons in acti ...
