CO2 Reduction to Acetate on Mixed Metal Oxide Catalyst
TS-037385 — A process for photoelectrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to acetate using mixed metal oxide as catalysts
The combustion of fossil fuels produces billions of tons of carbon dioxide annually. Research indicates that greater concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has altered Earth's climate, changed the pH of the ocean, and causing other potentially damaging evironmental effects. Countri…

Active Water Filtration Membrane for Minimal Concentration Polarization
TS-015002 — A technology capable of reducing concentration polarization and therefore minimize membrane fouling that arises during membrane-based separation, filtration, or concentration processes.
Desalination produces potable water in areas of the world that have unreliable access to fresh water. The most common method of desalination requires a membrane-based filtration system to filter salt and other particles out of the water. External concentration polarization, which occurs when solut…

Crosslinked Hydrophilic Membranes for Gas Separation
TS-014997 — An energy efficient process for the separation of gases by selectively permeable membranes
To counteract economic and environmental problems due to the burning of fossil fuels, society has placed an emphasis on development of renewable energy sources. Some of these renewable energy sources rely on the separation or removal of acid gases, such as carbon dioxide, hydrochloric acid, hydrog…

High-Flux Water Desalination Membranes
TS-014923 — An improved thin-film composite membrane which will efficiently purify greater amounts of water for reverse osmosis applications
Access to potable, contaminant-free water is increasingly difficult in developing countries. Water purification by reverse osmosis is a potential solution, but only 12,500 desalination plants exist and less than 1% of the world's total water consumption is supplied by this process. Membrane-ba…
