  1. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  2. A Technology to Mitigate Syngas Cooler Fouling

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25c

    Coal gasification plants have exhibited sub-par performance and plant economics due to poor reliability and availability. A major contributor to the poor performance has been fouling of the syngas cooler located downstream of the gasifier. The fouling is due to vaporized ash from the coal gasification process depositing on the inner walls of the tubes in the fire tube heat exchanger used in the sy ...

  4. Innovative Fabrication of High Temperature CO2 Selective Membrane for Hydrogen Generation via Membrane-Enhanced Water-Gas Shift Reaction

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    Efficient production of hydrogen from abundant fossil fuel reserves along with effective CO2 sequestration processes can lead to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and elimination of dependence on foreign oil. Currently, hydrogen production via water-gas shift (WGS) reaction of either a coal-derived syngas or natural gas steam reformate, coupled with pressure-swing adsorption is the most econom ...

  5. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend on charge carrier mobility in the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to ultimately improving >10% the efficiencies realized by typical organic solar cells, whether

  6. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic photovoltaic (OPV) solar cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend in turn on carrier mobility and the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to enabling the better OPV cells from leading OPV makers to reach >10% efficiencies, whether

  7. Recovery Act- Scale-up of Green Nanoscience Pathway for Optically Transparent Nanocomposites

    SBC: Vision Dynamics, LLC            Topic: 09b

    This project will scale up manufacturing systems based on green nanoscience pathways for optically transparent nanocomposites, leading to window coatings with higher thermal efficiency and photovoltaic cells with higher energy efficiency. VDL will migrate its nanocomposite technology, based on spin coating, to other coating manufacturing systems capable of coating continuous flexible films for a v ...

  8. High-Reliability Cements for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: HiFunda LLC            Topic: 04b

    The nation is currently faced with the significant challenge of developing alternative sources of energy to meet our growing energy needs in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner, while reducing carbon emissions. For a significant population of the western United States and the world that live near geothermal resources that may be exploited by enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), the ...

  9. OPTIMUM AIR-SPARGED HYDROCYCLONE FLOTATION FOR FINE COAL CLEANING WITH A PRESSURE SENSING CONTROL STRATEGY

    SBC: Advanced Processing Tech.,            Topic: N/A

    RECENT TESTING OF AIR-SPARGED HYDROCYCLONE (ASH) FLOTATION TECHNOLOGY FOR FINE COAL CLEANING AT THE EPRI/CODC TEST FACILITY HAS SHOWN THAT THE ASH SYSTEM HAS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR UTILIZATION IN THE COAL INDUSTRY. HOWEVER, EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF THIS TECHNOLOGY RELIES ON OPTIMUM CONTROL ANDCONTINUAL ADJUSTMENT OF MANIPULATED VARIABLES WITH RESPECT TO FLOTATION PERFORMANCE SINCE THE RETENTION TIME ...
