Phase 2 SBIR

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

THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP IMPROVED METAL HYDRIDE MATERIALS FOR A NEW HYDRIDE HEAT PUMP THAT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY CLEAN AND POTENTIALLY TWICE AS EFFICIENT AS THE BEST CURRENT SYSTEMS. NEW THERMODYNAMIC PROCESSES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR HYDRIDE HEAT PUMPS THAT ARE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EFFICIENT AND UTILIZE NO CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFCS), WHICH MUST BE...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1992
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

POLLUTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT FROM HYDROCARBONS USED IN CONVENTIONAL REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS IS A SERIOUS THREAT. TO REDUCE THIS PROBLEM, REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS ARE PLANNED BASEDON THE USE OF HYDROGEN ABSORBED AND DESORBED BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT METAL HYDRIDES. BECAUSE THESE MATERIALS STORE EXTREMELY LARGE VOLUMES OF HYDROGEN, THEY HAVE GREAT POTENTI...

THIS COUNTRY IS FACING AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN PROVIDING ELECTRIC ENERGY IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. THIS PROBLEM IS COMPOUNDED, ON THE ONE HAND, BY THE VERY HIGH COST OF NUCLEAR POWER, THE EXTREMELY LONG APPROVAL AND CONSTRUCTION TIMES, AND THE SHUTTING DOWN OF SEVERAL PLANTS EVEN BEFORE START UP BECAUSE OF THE CONCE...

Topic: 1989
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

APPROACHES THAT INCREASE THE COEFFICIENT OF PERFORMANCE OF REFRIGERATOR SYSTEMS ARE SOUGHT CONSTANTLY. RECENT INTERESTHAS BEEN DIRECTED TOWARD THE USE OF HEAT PUMPS FOR REFRIGERATION AND AIR CONDITIONING BECAUSE THEY HAVE SHOWN PROMISE IN INCREASING PERFORMANCE AND LOWERING OPERATING COSTS. ONE HEAT PUMP SYSTEM THAT HAS SHOWN GREAT POTENTIAL IS ...
