  3. Enhanced Butanol Yields for Advcanced Biofuels Production Using an Electrochemical Bioreactor

    SBC: BIOCHEMINSIGHTS INC            Topic: 88

    Biofuels from agricultural sources is one component of the strategy for achieving energy independence. Specifically, bio-butanol is a more attractive fuel than bio-ethanol because it:provides better gas mileage;achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol;runs in existing engines;has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure;is less volatile than ethanol;is more amenable to t ...

  7. Enhanced Dropwise Condensation for Improved Dry Cooling Efficiency

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    Industrial and utility applications utilizing dry cooling for condensing process steam are less efficient than their closed-loop cooling counterparts, resulting in higher energy consumption and operating costs. However, dry cooling is a necessary process in areas where cooling water supply is not available due to competing demands for water. The inefficiencies in dry cooling are largely due to ...
