  2. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  3. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...

  4. Development of High Efficient Ion Selective Membrane Separator for Lithium Polysulfide Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 19a

    A growth of renewable energy technologies will help to accommodate the growing demand for electricity, provided that energy storage technologies address the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power. Lithium polysulfide (Li-PS) redox flow batteries (RFBs) have been considered as one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies because of their high energ ...

  5. Low-Illumination Level UTC Photodetectors for QIS Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 32d

    High quantum efficiency photodetectors are a critical component of quantum squeezed state systems. Providing optical-to-microwave transduction fidelity allows these systems to significantly improve upon the noise performance of traditionally shot noise limited photonic links and sensors. However, as quantum information science is still a small, but rapidly growing field, there is a distinct lack o ...

  8. Novel Membranes for Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression Enabling Increased Pressure Capability and High Pumping Efficiency

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 17d

    Climate change and reduction in the cost of renewable energy systems have set the stage for wide-scale decarbonization of the energy economy. Adoption of hydrogen as an energy vector inevitably necessitates the infrastructure of technologies to enable distribution and storage of hydrogen. Xergy’s technological contribution addresses the need to efficiently compress hydrogen gas using electrochem ...
