Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

In an ideal model, emitted CO2 could be used as a feedstock for producing carbon based solid products and chemicals, which are inherently valuable in the current economy; either as end-products or as intermediates for more valuable commodities. In addition to providing economic stimulus to the U.S. manufacturing industry, the displacement of tr...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Connecticut

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14b
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.01
Budget: 06/13/16 - 06/12/18

As the price of helium has increased substantially in recent years, the interest in finding an efficient and economical method of helium recovery has never been more important. One method that can reduce the cost of rocket test operations is to recover hydrogen and helium gases using an electrochemical process. Sustainable Innovations is devel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Concern surrounding the increasing level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, is intensifying global interest in discovering sustainable methods for the utilization of fossil fuels and the products of their combustion. Moreover, the need for grid-scale energy storage to manage renewable energy intermittency and over-gen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Ongoing rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility in addition to valuable helium gas that is vented to the atmosphere. One method that can dramatically reduce the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical process. A...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H3.02
Budget: 05/20/15 - 05/19/17

Long duration manned space exploration requires further closure of the oxygen loop of the life support system than is currently realized aboard the International Space Station. In order to further close the oxygen loop, NASA has been developing an advanced Plasma Pyrolysis (PPA) technology that reduces the waste methane to higher order hydrocarb...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Connecticut

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14b
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The new purity requirements SAE J7219, ISO 14687-2 and ISO 14687 (Table I and Figure 1 below) place a three orders of magnitude increase on the accuracy of the instrumentation that is necessary to detect these extremely low levels of several critical contaminants. The design and verification of the conceptual approach of a cost-effective and re...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H3.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Sustainable Innovations' signature electrochemical cell architecture provides a solution to NASA's search for regenerative separation technology enabling maximum hydrogen recovery from a stream containing water vapor (saturated), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrocarbons including methane, acetylene, ethane, and ethylene, among others. Separation o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H1.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Sustainable Innovations, LLC, is developing an Electrochemical Methane Generator (EMG), which comprises a novel method of converting CO2 and H2O to hydrocarbon fuels (such as methane) and O2. When powered by a renewable energy source, such as solar or wind power, it can provide a method for producing high quality fuels in a distributed fashion. ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Connecticut

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-T10.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Sustainable Innovations is developing a technology for efficient separation and compression of hydrogen gas. The electrochemical hydrogen separator and compressor can actively remove hydrogen from a mixture and compress it to high pressure for storage or use. In applications where helium is used as a purge gas prior to the use of liquid hydrogen...
