ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit 2011

Showcasers with Primary Industry: Conventional Energy

Exelus, Inc.

Title / Name of Technology:Upgrading Refinery Off-Gas to High Octane Alkylate
Development Status:Concept
Brief Description of Technology:This technology offers the potential to generate 1.9 billion additional gallons of gasoline per year without consuming any additional feedstock. With this technology many refiners will be able to extract more gasoline from each barrel of oil further enhancing their profitability and reducing the demand for foreign oil.

FlexEnergy, LLC

Primary Industry (other):Dilute methane and other gases to emission free energy
Title / Name of Technology:Flex Powerstation
Development Status:Proven Manufacturability
Brief Description of Technology:The Flex uniquely integrates a pressurized thermal oxidizer and a recuperated gas turbine. The oxidizer enables the system to operate at ultra low fuel concentrations (1.5% methane) and below 1 ppm emissions. It generates clean, renewable energy while eliminating a major source of greenhouse gas emissions.

US Synthetic Bearings

Title / Name of Technology:Diamond bearings for use in renewable energy
Development Status:Proven Manufacturability
Brief Description of Technology:Diamond bearings capture thrust and radial loads between moving parts on surfaces made of synthetic diamond. They operate in severe environments and have proven economic where the cost of replacement is high. Applications in renewable energy include use in underwater power generation machines, wind machinery and geothermal fluid production pumps.
