  2. Novel Membrane Systems for Olefin/Paraffin Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 18a

    Ethylene and propylene are the primary feedstocks for the manufacture of polyethylene and polypropylene, respectively. These olefins represent a major component of the polymer manufacturing cost. Consequently, there is significant economic benefit in minimizing losses of unreacted olefin from the process. Some olefin loss is a result of the need to remove paraffin from the polymerization reactor ...

  3. Diamond Refractive Focusing Optics

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 16a

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the sources phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high brightness light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion in the front-end optics cau ...

  4. Solid Polymer Electrolytes with High Lithium Ion Conductivity and Transport Number for Hybrid Electric Power-train Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: 09b

    Current energy storage devices have energy densities that are barely sufficient for low cost electric-vehicles and rely on lithium ion batteries that use flammable, unsafe, liquid electrolytes. However, in order to replace liquid electrolyes in lithium batteries for hybrid electric power train systems, solid polymer electrolytes, which have the advantages of safety and flexibility, must attain con ...

  5. Thin Diamond for Time-of-Flight Detectors

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 35b

    Detectors and radiation monitors for future high energy and nuclear physics experiments must be able to withstand radiation environments several orders of magnitude harsher than those of any current device. At present, most radiation detectors are based on silicon technology, however, the practical radiation hardness limit of silicon falls far short of requirements in future high ener ...

  6. High Temperature Membrane Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 08b

    Membrane reactors have the potential to improve the reactivity, productivity, and energy efficiency of various chemical syntheses including transesterification. To be of value, the membrane reactors must provide a higher use temperature, improved chemical resistance and better mass transfer. This project will evaluate the use of a high temperature, high mass transfer membrane system to enhance t ...

  7. Dewatering Membrane for Hazy Hydrodesulfurization Unit Effluents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Refinery product streams, particularly those from Ultra Low Hydrodesulfurisation units, are prone to haze due to water emulsions. Hazy fuel cannot be used until the haze is removed, which creates costly scheduling and shipping delays. This project will develop a novel membrane process to rapidly remove fuel haze in real time. The process would be expected to operate on a once-through basis. Ph ...

  8. Stabilizing Hydraulic Fluid by Removing Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 21

    In the electrical power, steel production, and aluminum production industries, flame retardant, phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids are used to minimize fires. Although these fluids accomplish the fire-minimization task, they are unstable, which causes performance to suffer with attendant losses in productivity. This project will develop novel, chemically-resistant high-flux membranes that can remo ...

  9. Enhanced Distillation via Membranes for Elimination of Trapped Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 21

    Distillation is a major chemical unit operation and consumer of significant energy. Often, water or some other intermediate boiling component can become trapped within the distillation column and accumulate. This causes various operating difficulties such as flooding, slugging, cycling, instability, and off-spec product. This project will develop a chemically-resistant, non-porous, water-ventin ...

  10. Novel Platform for Enhanced Membrane Reactors for Homogeneous Catalysis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 23

    Membrane reactors have been proposed for a number of syntheses. However, to be competitive with conventional technologies, membrane reactors must provide better selectivity, permeability, and stability. This project will develop a novel platform with enhanced membrane permeability and stability, as needed for broad membrane reactor utilization. In Phase I, a chemically resistant membrane reacto ...
