Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18f
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

Conversion of carbon dioxide to useful products, including gasoline or commodity chemicals, via reaction with methane is problematic due to the energy inputs needed to overcome the large endothermic heats of reaction involved. Moreover, use of fossil fuels or carbon-based renewable fuels as energy sources will result in more CO2 released than is...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14a
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

A simplified shale-gas to fuels process will yield environmental and economic benefits while utilizing abundant domestic natural gas resources. Precision Combustion, Inc. will develop a long-sought direct method to convert shale-gas methane into fuels in a compact process that avoids large intensive processing units.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17c
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

The CO2 concentration in the Earth’s atmosphere has seen a drastic increase over the last half- century due largely to burning of fossil fuels. This increase could result in disastrous global climate change if the current rate of release does not decrease. Carbon capture and storage is crucial for the effective reduction of atmospheric CO2. The ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-072
Budget: 08/17/16 - 02/16/17

Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) has operated solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) at 0.5 2 kW scales, on high sulfur JP-8, for over 1000 hours. A standalone 1 kW generator prototype has been demonstrated. It is based on unique PCI innovations relating to sulfur cleanup, fuel reformation, hybrid burners, stack selection and integration. PCI proposes t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17c
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Reduce United States petroleum dependency by developing advanced combustion engines that can costeffectively improve the performance of vehicle technologies. A 5% net improvement in fuel economy would imply savings of about 7 billion gallons of gasoline per year. Experimentally and analytically demonstrate improved efficiency and reduced emissio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-048
Budget: 06/30/16 - 06/29/17

Precision Combustion, Inc. is proposing to build on its successful 1 kW, single-soldier portable, JP-8 generator demonstration and develop 2 and 3 kW variants. The proposed 2 kW generator will weigh about half of the 2 kW MTG and the 3 kW variant will weigh about a third of the TQG. These will meet and improve on the STEP targets. A novel approa...

Topic: 09
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/19

The increased demand for hydrogen supply at refineries can be met by reforming unconventional sources like still gas. However, processing capabilities are limited based on traditional approaches due to the varying composition of still gas. We propose a simple system for hydrogen recovery from still gas to meet the growing demand of hydrogen in t...

Conversion of carbon dioxide to useful products via reaction with methane is problematic due to the energy inputs needed to overcome the large endothermic heats of reaction involved. Moreover, use of fossil fuels or carbon-based renewable fuels as energy sources will result in more CO2 released than is converted. Non-carbon renewable sources of ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

The average platinum group metals loading on gasoline light duty vehicles needs to be reduced. However modern engine designs and engine operation strategies for maximizing engine efficiency create an added burden on the emissions control system. Consequently, reducing precious metal catalyst loading for improved emissions is becoming problematic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H4.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Trace contaminants that are introduced into the ventilation loop of a spacesuit (primarily ammonia and formaldehyde) via metabolic processes, off-gassing of spacesuit materials, and by-products of the amine used in the rapid cycle amine (RCA) system are typically removed using activated charcoal. Although effective, the downside of using these m...
