Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) researchers won an R&D Magazine R&D 100 award this month for their Bioenergy Technologies Office-funded invention of a new class of membranes that could help reduce the price of bio-ethanol, ethanol-gasoline blend fuels, and drop-in fuels from bio-oil processing. The super-hydro-tunable HiPAS membranes act as an energy-efficient alternative to the distillation process by using a superhydrophobic or superhydrophillic surface to separate molecules.
