Membrane processes for Hydrogen separation and production

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation… Abstract These membrane devices have been developed at ENEA Frascati laboratories for separation of hydrogen isotopes from tritiated water. Applied to the production of H2 from biomass, the dehydrogenation process on which these devices are based, allows the achievement of higher hydrogen and syngas […]

Method for increasing the concentration of tritiated water

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation… Abstract A  leading  European  fusion  laboratory  has  developed  a  method  for  increasing  the  concentration  of  tritiated  waste  water  whilst  reducing  the  volume.  The  process  involves electrolysing the tritiated waste water and then humidifying the evolved gas to reintroduce the tritium into the waste water. […]

Hydrogen Permeation Barriers

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation… Abstract The Research Centre Juelich has gained substantial expertise in the development, preparation and characterization of hydrogen permeation barriers. In the fusion domain, such coatings are needed to limit losses of Tritium to the environment. Promising laboratory experiments have been conducted. A partner is […]

Ultra Sniffer New leak detection method

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation… Abstract The test sensitivity of classic sniffer test method  is  limited  by  the  helium  concentration  in  the  air,  but  by  reducing  the  atmospheric helium concentration the test sensitivity can be significantly improved. The Ultra Sniffer Test gas (UST) method is simple – there is […]

Fast Gas Inlet Valve insensitive to Magnetic Fields

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation… Abstract The object of the invention is to provide a fast gas  inlet  valve,  primarily  for  emergency  situations,  fitted  inside  a  magnetic  field device,  but  not  sensitive  to  the  magnetic  field. This device was originally  developed for use  within  the  nuclear  fusion  domain,  but  is  also  available  for  use  in  other  […]
