Novel membranes for Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression enabling increased pressure capability and higher pumping efficiencySBC: Xergy Inc Topic: 17d
Xergy and RPI will develop a novel composite membrane that enables electrochemical hydrogen compression at > 1 kg/hour at 875 bar with an energy consumption of 1.4 kWh/kg, given hydrogen input at 100 bar. Phase I of this research will include synthesis of membrane samples, followed by bench-top evaluation of key performance characteristics, including polarization curves, Tafel plots, and evaluatio ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: RiKarbon, Inc. Topic: 15a
RiKarbon, Inc. will commercialize an enabling technology for the production of Environmentally-Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) from plant matters and natural oils. The produced Bio-Lubricants (BioLubes) with branched architecture, improved properties and durability, and tunable specifications will have a wide range of high-performance applications, e.g., hydropower production, lubrication of engines ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
