  3. New Fluorinated Ionomers for Enhanced Oxygen Transport in Fuel Cell Cathodes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Cathodes in proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) that run on hydrogen are coated with a thin layer of conductive ionomer- The ionomer facilitates proton conduction to the costly platinum group metal (PGM) catalyst in the cathode, where oxygen reduction and reaction to form water occurs- Higher catalyst efficiency and lower catalyst loadings are desirable for industry PEMFC cost reductions- ...

  5. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydration (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast process ...

  6. Adaptive Weather Resistant Barrier for Building Envelopes to Control Moisture Ingression and Increase Energy Efficiency

    SBC: EA Membranes LLC            Topic: 09a

    Excessive moisture transport into building enclosures can lead to increased energy use as well as mold growth and structural rot when moisture condenses in wall cavities. Currently, architects and builders must use passive membrane products as weather resistant barriers which exhibit a single permeability irrespective of environmental conditions. Membranes with a single high permeability may allow ...

  7. Bi2212 Powder Production with Wide Tmax Window for High Field Magnet Applications

    SBC: NGIMAT, LLC            Topic: 26a

    Recently, Bi2212 wires fabricated with high quality Bi2212 powders have achieved short-term champion engineering critical current density Je ~1.9 kA/mm2 at 4.2 K and 5 T. However, such superior performance does not pass on to the superconducting coils due to the strong sensitivity of Je on Tmax. A ~37.0 cm long racetrack coil shows less than 70% Je of the corresponding high performance Bi2212 wire ...

  8. Novel CO2 Sorbent Materials for Advanced Carbon Capture Technologies

    SBC: Advanced Energy Materials, LLC            Topic: 18d

    This project proposes the development of carbon capture technology for flue gases using a new class of solid adsorbents. The novel adsorbents proposed here are anticipated of having a high CO2 removal capacity (0.4 g g-1) at wide temperature range and fast regeneration process. In this project, Advanced Energy Materials, LLC (AdEM) proposes to develop the high performance CO2 adsorbents based on l ...
