Title:
Aqueous Phase Base-Facilitated-Reforming (BFR) of Renewable Fuels
Summary:
This project investigates a novel low cost method of producing gaseous hydrogen from biomass or municipal solid waste (MSW). The process utilizes an aqueous phase Base-Facilitated-Reforming (BFR) reactor to produce pure hydrogen gas without additional purification and, in one configuration, sequester carbon in solid form to avoid release of greenhouse gases.

Title:
Low Draft Temperatur Sensor Gen-IV Simulation Test Planning and Hardware Development
Summary:
A method of testing and improving the durability of low-drift temperature sensors is proposed for nuclear reactor use which supports the Gen-IV and Nuclear Hydrogen Initiatives. This sensor will enable safe operation of these new reactors at peak efficiencies, which in turn will reduce the U.S. dependency on foreign oil while simultaneously reducing emission of green house gasses.
