hydrogen storage

Hydrogen Storage & Transport System

SDE3 was retained to provide design and scale-up of a process for safe hydrogen storage and retrieval hydrogen via manipulation of a proprietary liquid media based on nano-tech, self-assembling molecules. Applications for the technology included automotive fuel, off-peak electrical energy storage, and bulk storage of hydrogen. SDE3 investigated the feasibility and economics of the process scale-up. SDE3 developed a detailed fluidized bed reactor simulation and preliminary design of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation commercial-scale systems. SDE3 also developed a commercial synthetic procedure to produce the self-assembling molecule in bulk quantity.

mineral nano-fiber

Mineral Nano-Fiber Plant

SDE3 was retained by GR International to develop a scale-up of their mineral nano-fiber production process from pilot to commercial scale. The process involves the production of two different families of nano-fiber products, with each product requiring precise control of temperature, pressure and ingredients in a batch reactor.

With this project, SDE3 developed a detailed mass and energy simulation of the process to produce each nano-fiber product. The simulation was used to test various production processes and post-treatment methods for each product. Extensive laboratory and pilot plant testing was conducted to determine scalability of the process, and to provide data to calibrate the simulation. Simulation modeling was conducted to determine profile, mixing, and heat transfer characteristics for the full-size reactor. Design of the full-scale plant was conducted using 3D CAD process modeling software.

Fish Oil Omega 3 Concentration

SDE3 was retained to develop a novel, ship-mounted process for concentrating high value omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids from fish oil. SDE3 developed an interesterification technology that would concentrate higher molecular weight unsaturated fatty acids, without losing the natural triglyceride structure.

SDE3 set up and conducted laboratory trials to validate the process and determine operating parameters for a commercial scale operation. Following laboratory trials, a capital estimate was developed for installing the process on board a factory trawler that had been previously removed from service.

The mobile oil processing factory would be located close to the Bering Sea fishing grounds to allow immediate processing into value-added products.
