Novel Nanopore Membrane Technology Recovers Energy from Industrial Effluents A vast amount of energy is wasted in the United States from the exhaust/effluent streams of an estimated 163,000 commercial and industrial boilers. Much of this energy could be recovered by sieving the streams through inorganic membranes featuring nano-sized pore technology. The estimated savings by 2030 for energy recov…

Improved Cast Stainless Steel Alloys At high temperatures, currently available cast stainless steel alloys used for engine component applications do not have the long-term stability of their original castings and are lacking in their ability to resist deformation and cracking from extreme temperature changes. Researchers at ORNL have developed cast stainless steel alloys that are stable in the lo…

Superconductor with Improved Flux Pinning and Reduced AC Losses A new ORNL technique for making superconductor tapes and films promises significant reduction of energy losses in demanding high temperature superconductor (HTS) applications such as electric grids. The simple, inexpensive method separates the components into thin filaments and aligns the filaments more efficiently on a substrate. …

Solid Lithium Ion Conducting Electrolytes Suitable for Manufacturing Processes The lithium ion battery found in electronics like cell phones uses liquid electrolytes associated with shorter battery life; this material is also a safety hazard if it is overheated or overcharged. Batteries with solid lithium ion conducting electrolytes would overcome these limitations, but they have insufficient pow…

IR Spot Weld Inspect Copyright Document Number 50000074 Copyright Summary In the automotive industry, destructive inspection of spot welds is still the mandatory quality assurance method due to the lack of efficient non-destructive evaluation (NDE) tools. However, it is costly and time- consuming. Recently at ORNL, a new NDE prototype system for spot weld insp…

Decorative Steel Composition with a Crystalline Surface A method for producing a new decorative steel with a crystalline surface was developed by an ORNL researcher. This invention potentially represents the first new decorative steel to be introduced since the development of Damascus steel around 1100 AD. In this invention, the type of decorative steel formed can be controlled by using crystals …
