 QnergyPeterson, Allen Small Business Power Generation: Renewable Qnergy designs, builds, deploys, and operates unique power generation equipment and are focused on environmentally friendly power. We are also focused on enabling system solutions, rather than just electric power.

Qnergy technology development are currently targeting two methane sources at present, which are O&G supply chain and Animal waste. During 2020, Qnergy launched a product that addresses 'bleeding' methane-pneumatic devices within O&G. This product is gaining traction commercially. Qnergy seeks opportunities to partner, develop, deploy, or demonstrate these technologies within an ARPA-E team.

The next frontier for Qnergy products/systems is biogas emissions. Qnergy have prototyped a demonstration project but will seek further funding to launch a system that abates methane emission from SMALL farms (smaller than 100 animals). Such farms might be too small for a large biodigester, but Qnergy could offer a system approach that might includes a a small biodigester (sourced by Sistema Bio) combined with a PowerGen. The PowerGen turns methane into power, heat, and some CO2 emission. At a system level, the CO2 can be channeled to a greenhouse. Heat can be used to maintain the bacterial activity in the bioreactor during low temperature periods (temperature stabilization is a known issue in biodigesters). During prototyping, Qnergy encountered the challenge of corrosion due to high H2S levels. Development funding would help build and launch an H2S-resistant system enabling long term methane mitigation in biogas.

Qnergy looks forward to opportunities to team up on future funding announcements.

 Southern Aerospace Company, LLC (SAC)Frank Arena Small Business Other Energy Technologies A certified SDVO Small Business designed to develop complex, high tech, Intellectual Property (IP)-based R&D solutions. Each project is supported through unique global IP Research and Analysis; high performance computing, physics based Digital Engineering Enterprise; physical engineering and seasoned program management. Our solutions combine and reuse Prior Art in ways previously not imagined.

We combine current solid oxide fuel cell technology with a novel chemistry-based approach to produce 1Kw of energy and initially abate emissions to less than 10% methane from oil and gas wells. This novel approach requires methane sensing and leak detection. The field deployable unit requires remote smart controls, analysis and continuously-monitored reporting. The unit and the controller are intended for remote, hands-free operation with software defined controls and “plug and play” components. A smart-grid IOT data structure allows continuous operational monitoring, predictive analysis and planned replacement. This smart-grid construct allows monitoring of a single unit, a region of units to a system of units through small sensors which monitor the real-time operating “health” and "system" performance.

Applies an implementable and transformative solutions as digitally engineered prototypes first. The digital prototype are then developed into a physical engineering prototype for field qualification and certification. Digital prototyping allows for early trade space decisions for performance optimization and cost reduction. Once field qualified, the digital prototype can be further explored for use of biological remediation or bio-filters, other chemistry approaches, transformative mechanical engineering design implementation, and novel approaches for system solutions in virtual field settings or actual field settings.

The Ozkan Research Group specializes in heterogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis including (1) the design and execution of solid oxide electrochemical cells for high-temperature electrolysis of water and/or carbondioxide, electrocatalytically-assisted oxidative dehydrogenation of alkanes (funded by NSF), high-temperature electrocatalytic synthesis of ammonia from nitrogen and water (being funded by NSF) and high-temperature electrocatalytic methane coupling, (2) investigation of PGM and non-PGM based catalysts for the complete oxidation of ventilation air methane (VAM) emitted from coal mines (funded by Ohio Coal Development Organization), (3) fundamental studies of the multifunctional electrocatalysis on heteroatom-doped carbon (CNx) catalysts for oxygen reduction (ORR) and evolution (OER) reactions (being funded by DOE) and (4) gas and liquid phase environmental catalysis for wastewater treatment (funded by Ohio Coal Development Organization). The experiences, expertise, and capabilities of the Group relevant to the methane abatement and prevention project are listed below:
• Catalyst synthesis using wet chemistry (sol-gel techniques), solid-state synthesis and chemical vapor deposition.
• Catalyst characterization including surface area analysis (BET), crystal structure/structural stability analysis (ex-situ & in-situ XRD), surface characterization (ultra-high vacuum X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (UHV-XPS) and near-atmospheric pressure XPS (NAP-XPS)), steady-state isotopic transient kinetic analysis (SSITKA), in-situ vibrational spectroscopy (Diffuse Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy: DRIFTS), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy (Dr. Ozkan has active proposals with the Argonne National Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory), scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM/TEM) and Mössbauer Spectroscopy.
• Catalytic and electrocatalytic activity testing systems: In her laboratory, there is a catalytic activity test system built for the complete oxidation of ventilation air methane (0.3-1% methane in air) and an electrocatalytic activity test system composed of a solid oxide electrochemical cell operated in both electrolysis and ion-pump modes which can be used for methane oxidation and coupling.
