Title: Final Technical Report for EE0006091: H2Pump Hydrogen Recycling System Demonstration

Abstract

The objective of this project is to demonstrate the product readiness and to quantify the benefits and customer value proposition of H2Pump’s Hydrogen Recycling System (HRS-100™) by installing and analyzing the operation of multiple prototype 100-kg per day systems in real world customer locations. The data gathered will be used to measure reliability, demonstrate the value proposition to customers, and validate our business model. H2Pump will install, track and report multiple field demonstration systems in industrial heat treating and semi-conductor applications. The customer demonstrations will be used to develop case studies and showcase the benefits of the technology to drive market adoption.

  • A good, functional Hydrogen Fluoride Gasbadge dosimeter has been developed for sampling of airborne HF vapor. The device is small (7.7 cm {times} 5.4 cm {times} 1.9 cm) and can easily and conveniently be worn on one`s lapel. It consists of polyethylene and polypropylene parts and a triethanolamine-impregnated polyproylene collection element. It is completely self contained, requiring no pumps, impingers, or sampling tubes. Subsequent to sampling, the collection element is analyzed quickly and easily with a fluoride selective-ion electrode. Laboratory tests were conducted to determine precision, linearity, interference effects, influences of temperature and humidity, and collection element stability over time.more » Results of the tests indicate that the Abcor Gasbadge HF dosimeter is an excellent passive HF monitor for work spaces, and that results obtained with it are accurate within {plus_minus}25%. These results have been corroborated in a field study.« less
  • The objective of this demonstration project was to evaluate the hot-mix recycling process as a method of renovating a badly cracked and otherwise deteriorated section of road-mixed bituminous paving in southwestern Kansas. The equipment used on the project included a cold milling machine to reclaim the upper portion of existing pavement; a drum dryer hot-mix plant modified to process the material; and other standard hot-mix laydown and compaction machines. Energy consumption comparisons in equivalent gallons of fuel indicate a savings of 17.8% when the recycled method is compared to using all new aggregate. The energy saving is primarily due tomore » less asphaltic cement required and less fuel needed to mill and reuse the existing pavement than to quarry and haul in an equivalent quantity of new aggregate.« less
  • This final report documents the results of laboratory and field evaluations of commercially available recycling units for recycling Mil H 46170 hydraulic fluid. Used fluid was drained from the vehicles, processed through approved recycling equipment, mixed with 25% new fluid, and returned to vehicle service. The vehicle performance was monitored for six months with satisfactory results. In addition, other batches of used fluid were processed through the recycling equipment and analyzed for performance. Results of these additional analysis confirm that used fluid retains most of its additive performance with the exception of antifoaming ability, but that the addition of themore » 25% new fluid restored the cleaned up used fluid to specification performance. Lessons learned during the demonstration are identified in the report with the most important lesson being the need for clean processing containers.« less
  • This report describes the demonstration of a municipal recycling program and the results of the use of collected mixed paper as animal bedding. The project included demonstration of several collection methods applicable for rural communities, including a curbside collection program in the Village of Potsdam and drop-off collection in some surrounding areas. The collected materials were upgraded at a private materials-processing facility. Some mixed paper was shredded to produce three types of wastepaper animal bedding. The project also examined biodegradation of used bedding and manure and the mobility of metals found in paper of manure. In the laboratory test program,more » mixture of manure and wastepaper beddings decomposed more slowly than hay bedding mixtures. However in field tests at the cooperator farm, wastepaper beddings degraded quickly enough to effectively disappear soon after landspreading.« less
  • Monroe County, New York undertook a demonstration project to expand its recycling program and quantify the energy savings that resulted from the expanded program. This report is the culmination of Phase 3, the program evaluation. The demonstration program, conducted from May 1995 to April 1996, involved 32,100 households in Monroe County or approximately 11.8% of the county population. The report includes an assessment of the non-traditional recyclable quantities received and marketed, determination of impacts on other collected recyclables, comparison of estimated energy use for the demonstration program vs. pre-demonstration recycling program, determination of revenues received from the demonstration program, evaluationmore » of the public education program utilized, and projected costs to implement the program county-wide. The non-traditional recyclables collected in the demonstration program included boxboard, mixed paper (including `junk mail`), and old telephone directories.« less
