  1. Membranes for Solid State Lithium Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 06a

    Low-cost, safe, large voltage (i.e., hundreds of volts), and high-energy lithium-ion batteries with long calendar and operational lives are required for a variety of electric utility applications to address issues associated with power quality and transmission congestion. Such large-format batteries also are needed for vehicle applications (e.g., electric and hybrid electric vehicles). For both ap ...

  2. Enhancing the Heat Exchanger Performance Through the Use of High Temperature Resistant Superhydrophobic Nanocomposite Coatings

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 07d

    Steam-to-liquid heat exchangers are used extensively in industrial applications, including chemical and food processing and electric power generation. In present systems, the formation of a condensate film of water on the surface of a heat exchanger tube reduces the heat transfer coefficient. This effect occurs because the thermal conductivity of the condensed water is only a fraction of that of t ...

  3. High Performance Fluoroelastomer Nanocomposite Seals For Geothermal Submersible Pumps

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21c

    Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESPs) for use in geothermal energy production are subjected to harsh downhole environments. These environments include hot brine (which contains calcium and chloride ions, corrosive hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide, and silica and entrained sand) at temperatures in the range of 300 to 450 °F. Fluoroelastomeric materials are frequently used as seals in these applic ...

  4. Effective Removal of Selenate from FGD Waste Streams Through the use of Novel Nanocomposite Particles

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 56b

    In coal-fired power plants, the waste streams from flue gas desulfurization (FGD) have high levels of mercury, arsenic, and selenium; therefore, these streams need to be treated prior to discharge. Moreover, the use of non-traditional waters for FGD, combined with more stringent regulations on emissions from power plants, is increasing the concentration of these metals in FGD wastewater. However, ...

  5. Implementing Nanoparticle Containing Fluids in Petroleum Refineries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 23c

    Small refineries are in constant need of technologies to enhance their energy efficiency and reduce operating costs. These refineries make extensive use of water-based cooling towers downstream from the cracking/refining/reactor processes, in order to reduce temperatures prior to finished product storage. A typical refinery has been estimated to produce total waste heat of 127,000 Btu per barrel, ...

  6. Nanotechnology-Based Self-Healing Coating System to Enable Extensive Use of Magnesium Alloys in Automotives

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 25a

    The fuel efficiency of automobiles can be enhanced by using lightweight materials such as magnesium alloys. However, unlike steel, magnesium alloys corrode rapidly. Although magnesium alloys can be protected against corrosion by chromate-based coatings, chromates are being phased out due to toxicity and environmental concerns. Therefore, there is an immediate need to develop non-chromate corrosion ...

  7. A New Class of Nanocomposite Treatment Media for Efficient Mercury Remediation

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 38b

    Mercury remediation in contaminated sites throughout the United States is currently being addressed by a variety of techniques, including the use of sorbents. Although a variety of sorbent materials for capturing mercury in contaminated water are available commercially, there is an opportunity to drastically increase the efficiency of the adsorption process, thereby lowering cost and remediation t ...

  8. Self-Healing Polymeric Coatings: Beyond Scratch-Healing

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 12a

    Specialty polymer coatings are widely used for maintenance applications, such as for bridges, refineries, power plants, ships, industrial floors, and fuel tanks. Due to routine wear and tear, micro-damage or micro-cracks within the resin matrix can be generated, which eventually lead to macroscopic damages (e.g., rupture and delamination) and reduce the operational life of the coatings. Currently ...

  9. Enhancing the Heat Exchanger Performance Through the Use of High Temperature Resistant Superhydrophobic Nanocomposite Coatings

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The formation of a condensate film on the surface of a heat exchanger tube reduces the heat transfer coefficient of vapor-to-liquid heat exchangers. This reduction occurs because the thermal conductivity of the condensate liquid is only a fraction of that of the metallic heat exchanging tube material, thereby lowering the overall thermal conductivity. This situation can be overcome if the vapor ...

  10. Membranes for Solid State Lithium Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The use of a solid polymer electrolyte instead of the conventional liquid or gel electrolyte can drastically improve the safety aspects of Li-ion batteries. However, existing solid electrolytes based on poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) do not meet the functional performance requirements. At low temperatures, the conductivity is poor due to the presence of crystalline PEO segments, which restrict lithi ...
