A new method for using gaseous compounds to produce energy, while also removing harmful by-products, was invented by ORNL researchers. This invention offers an efficient use of waste products, such as sulfurous compounds or carbon monoxide, and can reduce the overall cost of industrial operations. Industrial processes often output gas by-products that are either processed as waste or directly rel…

Smart Smoke Alarm Disclosure Number 201202979 Technology Summary The invention relates to sensors and more specifically to a smart alarm that uses mathematical algorithms to detect fires more rapidly than conventional smoke alarms and to discriminate against conditions that would lead to false alarms. The alarm utilizes one or more sensors and intelligent…

SCR HT Sensors Fact Sheet R1 Sensors and Controls Research Combustion of fossil fuels currently generates most of the nation's energy, and 2008 forecasts by the Energy Information Agency predict this will continue to be the case for at least the next two decades. In addition to generating the greenhouse gas CO2, combustion of any carbonaceous fuel can generate pollutants such as oxides of nitroge…

Ultra-stable Gold Nanocatalysts Gold is inert in large quantities but exhibits surprisingly high catalytic activity when dispersed as small nanoparticles on selected metal oxides. ORNL researchers successfully deposited and stabilized gold nanoparticles on surfaces of rare earth materials, creating ultra-stable gold nanocatalysts that exhibit unprecedented efficiency in industrial oxidation proce…

System for Electrolysis of Water to Produce Hydrogen The electrolysis of water offers an alternative method for large scale production of hydrogen, without toxic and environmentally damaging byproducts. By using multiple microelectrodes on a substrate plus nearby counterelectrodes, an ORNL researcher invented a scalable means of splitting water into hydrogen and/or oxygen. This system functions w…
