Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09a
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19
PI: Juan He

This SBIR project proposes the development of advanced catalyst technology for ultra-deep hydrodesulfurization and cetane number improvement process for diesel fuel. In Phase I of this project, Advanced Energy Materials, LLC. (AdEM) utilized its core technology of metal oxide nanowires platform for catalyst design, and successfully demonstrated ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17
PI: Juan He

This project proposes the development of advanced catalyst technology for ultra-deep hydro-desulfurization and cetane number improvement process for diesel fuel. The proposed process will enhance the cetane number to as high as 58, lower sulfur content and reduce the boiling end-point to obtain a higher-quality diesel fuel. In this project, Adva...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Juan He

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in removing sulfur compounds from various fuels such as diesel, gasoline and mixture of refined fuels known as transmix. It is critically important to reduce sulfur levels below 10 ppm as the emissions from transportation vehicles can ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a new type of advanced hydrodesulfurization (HDS) catalyst for deep desulfurization purposes. Specifically, metal nanoparticles supported on zinc oxide nanowires are proposed for creating higher performance, reactive adsorbent type HDS catal...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a new method and reactor for continuous and large-scale production of titania and other related metal oxide nanowires. Inexpensive micron scale metal oxide and spherically shaped powders will be converted to nanowires using a plasma oxidation scheme. The fast reaction...
