Catalytic Conversion of Bioethanol to Hydrocarbons A method for catalytically converting an alcohol to a hydrocarbon without requiring purified or concentrated alcohol was invented by ORNL researchers. This approach can be used for relatively dilute bio-mass produced alcohols, such as those found in a biomass fermentation reactor. Conventional biomass to hydrocarbon conversion is generally not c…

Method for Removing Precipitates in Biofuel At ORNL the application of ultrasonic energy, or sonication, has been shown to successfully remove or prevent the formation of 50 90% of the precipitates in biofuels. Precipitates can plug filters as biodiesel is transported from one location to another, and often cannot be detected by visual inspection. This simple method solves one of the most seri…

Developmentcatalytically Development of Catalytically Selective Electrodes for NOx and NH3 Sensing Background Recent efforts to improve vehicle fuel economy as well as to reduce emissions have demonstrated the need for a NOx sensor. The NOx sensor is an enabling technology which will promote the advancement of both lean burn gasoline engines and diesel engines by permitting improved engine contr…
