To improve rates of nuclear power generation, ORNL has patented a way to increase the thermal conductivity of uranium oxide UO 2 fuel. This is achieved by adding high conductivity fibers to form a composite UO 2 fuel pellet. Essentially, the invention is a nuclear fuel pellet with a UO 2 matrix in which long fibers of a high conductivity material are randomly dispersed to act as heat conduits th…

Manufacturing Biodiesel from Triglycerides ORNL researchers have developed an apparatus that manufactures biodiesel by the reaction of triglycerides with an alcohol and subsequently separates the biodiesel product from the glycerol byproduct. The invention represents an advancement in centrifugal contactor technology in that the new device makes it possible to adjust and control the time in the r…

A more efficient reaction and separation process for reaction products was invented by ORNL researchers. This method is specifically applicable to the production of biodiesel through the esterification of organic oils and fats. In conventional biodiesel manufacturing, esters and glycerines are separated by allowing the products to sit undisturbed for 24 hours. This process is problematic for two…
