Treatment of Fuel Process Wastewater Using Fuel Cells ORNL researchers invented a method using microbial fuel cells for cleansing fuel processing water of hydrocarbon by-products and metal salts. This cost efficient method can be used on-site, so that water does not need to be transported to a treatment facility. It also permits fuel processing water to be safely discharged into the environment o…

Permanent-Magnet-Less Synchronous Reluctance Motors A U-machine invented at ORNL offers a new motor design that eliminates the need for permanent magnets. This is an important cost-saving advance in electric motor technology. As hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles become increasingly popular, the demand for electric drive motors could soon reach multi-millions of units per year. Currently, perm…

Low Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Disclosure Number 200401468 Technology Summary A solid oxide fuel cell has been developed that operates at temperatures less than 500 C and potentially as low as 300 C. This fuel cell is composed of base metal electrodes (anodes and cathode) and in the planar form can utilize inexpensive stainless steels as the interc…

Schematic of H2 generation fuel cell power system. Silent, Low Signature Power for Portable/Remote Applications There are a variety of power systems for remote and portable applications, including internal combustion engines, batteries, fuel cells and hybrid combinations of multiple sources. The PEM fuel cell, in combination with chemical-based hydrogen generation is a power source that provide…

A U-machine invented at ORNL offers a new motor design that eliminates the need for a permanent magnet. Currently, permanent magnet motors are the choice for hybrid, plug-in, and fuel-cell vehicle drives. However, raw materials for permanent magnets (e.g., rare earth elements) are subject to trends in supply and demand; eliminating these materials from electric motors and generators helps to contr…
