Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

A CONTINUOUS PRESSURE SWING ADSORPTION (CPSA) PROCESS WILL BE DEVELOED IN PHASE I FOR NITROGEN REJECTION FROM LOW QUALITY NATURAL GAS. THIS PROCESS WILL REMOVE THE SOLE TECHNO-ECONOMIC HURDLE FOR UTILIZING MAJOR RESOURCES OF LOW QUALITY NATURAL GAS. THIS WILL PROVIDE A METHODOLOGY FOR PRODUCING A VALUABLE FUEL RESOURCE OUT OF GAS RESOURCES WHI...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95
PI: Unavailable

Methane will be generated from the anaerobic fermentation of waste grass straw mixed with dairy manure. The fuel will be used for power generation using internal combustion engines. The mixing of the two wastes provides a synergistic effect whereby the combination of feedstocks generates more methane than the individual streams.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

A COMBINATION PRESSURE SWING ADSORPTION (PSA)/TEMPERATURE SWING ADSORPTION (TSA) PROCESS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR REMOVING NITROGEN FROM LOW-QUALITY NATURAL GAS IN ORDER TO PRODUCE PIPELINE QUALITY NATURAL GAS ON A SMALL SCALE. NITROGEN REJECTION REMAINS THE MAJOR TECHNOECONOMIC HURDLE FOR UTILIZING MAJOR RESOURCES OF LOW-QUALITY NATURAL GAS. THIS ...

Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO INVESTIGATE AN INNOVATIVE HYDRAULIC HORIZONTAL DRILLING METHOD FOR PRODUCING COALBED METHANE (CBM) COMMERCIALLY AND THEREBY LIMITING ITS EMISSION FROM COAL MINES. CBM IS TYPICALLY PRODUCED USING CONVENTIONAL VERTICAL WELLS THAT HAVE BEEN STIMULATED HYDRAULICALLY TO ENHANCE THE FORMATION PERMEA...

A LEAN BURNING GAS TURBINE DESIGN WILL BE DEVELOPED TO BURN METHANE-AIR MIXTURES WITH METHANE CONCENTRATIONS AS LOW AS 2%. THIS WILL ALLOW THE USE OF COAL MINE VENTILATION AIR ASTHE FUEL. MEMBERS OF THE PROJECT TEAM HAVE DEVELOPED SEVERAL CONCEPTUAL APPROACHES WHICH COULD HANDLE SUCH AN EXTREMELY DILUTE FUEL. THESE CONCEPTUAL DESIGNS WILL BE EVA...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1990
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

COAL MINES IN THE U.S. EMIT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF CUBIC FEET OF NATURAL GAS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE DAILY. THESE SOURCES OF NATURAL GAS TYPICALLY ARE EITHER TOO DILUTE OR TOO FAR FROM EXISTING GAS PIPELINES TO BE OF COMMERCIAL VALUE. THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO USING THESE WASTE GAS STREAMS TO FUEL ONSITE POWER GENERATION F...
