Kawasaki, Japan

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization , also known as NEDO, is Japan's largest public management organization promoting research and development as well as deployment of industrial, energy and environmental technologies. In 2003, NEDO was reorganized as an Independent Administrative Agency. NEDO has approximately 1,000 personnel and domestic offices in Hokkaido, Kansai, and Kyushu and international offices in Washington D.C., Silicon Valley , Paris, Beijing, Bangkok, Jakarta and New Delhi. Its budget for fiscal year 2009 was 234,700,000,000 yen , the vast majority of which was provided by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry . Its head office is located just outside of Tokyo in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture.NEDO has a number of projects in the United States, notably a smart grid and alternative energy project with two research laboratories in New Mexico, Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory . In March 2010, NEDO and the laboratories signed agreements in which NEDO will fund a smart grid research facility at LANL and smart house demonstration projects in both Los Alamos and Albuquerque, New Mexico. NEDO is investing $30 million on the projects for a four-year period. Wikipedia.

New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has started the development project of system and elemental technology on SOFC from FY2008. The objective of this project is to clarify the prospects for 40,000 hours of operation (voltage decrease rate less than 0.25%/1,000 hours) and the prospects for 250 start-up and stop operations. Thermodynamic analysis, chemical analysis, and mechanical analysis have been conducted to make clear the deterioration mechanism, to make the countermeasures, and to establish acceleration test method. In addition, start-stop technology aiming at improving operability, and high-pressure operation technology aiming at achieving ultra-high-efficiency operation have been developed. The demonstrative research project on SOFC was started in FY2007. In this project, 136 units of 0.7-8 kW SOFC systems were installed in various actual load environments and the operating data were evaluated and analyzed to identify issues which would feed back into the technological development project mentioned above. ©The Electrochemical Society.

Cu-Zn-Ce-Al precursors with hydrotalcite-like layered structure were prepared by cocurrent coprecipitation method. After calcining at 720 °C for 8 h, the precursors transformed to a series of spinel structure catalyst. The compositions of the catalysts were analyzed; reaction conditions including temperature, space velocity and oxygen partial pressure, as well as life test were investigated. Results showed that when using a catalyst having metal mole ratio of Cu: Zn: Ce Al = 2: 0.8: 0.2: 1 to treat an acrylic acid wastewater (COD concentration of 26 000 mg/L) under the conditions of a reaction temperature of 150 "C, an oxygen partial pressure of 1.0 MPa and a reaction space velocity of 1 h-1, the COD removal rate reached more than 90%. After running 100 h, the Cu dissolution loss was 0.23 mg/L(less than the requirement of National Standard for Water Qualities of 0.3 mg/L), which indicated that the catalyst possessed good catalytic oxidation performance and structure stability.

Extremophiles | Year: 2012

Acidophiles are ecologically and economically important group of microorganisms, which thrive in acidic natural (solfataric fields, sulfuric pools) as well as artificial man-made (areas associated with human activities such as mining of coal and metal ores) environments. They possess networked cellular adaptations to regulate pH inside the cell. Several extracellular enzymes from acidophiles are known to be functional at much lower pH than the cytoplasmic pH. Enzymes like amylases, proteases, ligases, cellulases, xylanases, α-glucosidases, endoglucanases, and esterases stable at low pH are known from various acidophilic microbes. The possibility of improving them by genetic engineering and directed evolution will further boost their industrial applications. Besides biocatalysts, other biomolecules such as plasmids, rusticynin, and maltose-binding protein have also been reported from acidophiles. Some strategies for circumventing the problems encountered in expressing genes encoding proteins from extreme acidophiles have been suggested. The investigations on the analysis of crystal structures of some acidophilic proteins have thrown light on their acid stability. Attempts are being made to use thermoacidophilic microbes for biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass. The enzymes from acidophiles are mainly used in polymer degradation. © 2011 Springer.

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has been conducting technology development and demonstrative research projects on SOFC, as one of the most important and promising technologies for CO 2 reduction and realizing dispersed power sources. One of the achievements was the-first-in-the-world commercialization of SOFC-based combined heat and power (CHP) residential system in 2011. Cost reduction and durability improvements of SOFCs, however, still remain critical issues for their further widespread commercialization. In this paper, two NEDO projects relating to SOFCs, "Development of System and Elemental Technologies on SOFC" (FY 2008-2012) and "Technology Development for promoting SOFC commercialization" (FY 2013-2017) will be introduced. © The Electrochemical Society.

A system and method for processing a distributed transaction for an application are disclosed. Conventionally transactions on critical data (e.g. financial information) are processed using a database architecture whereby a persistent database (typically a redundant disk array) comprises the master record. In cases where large amounts of data need to be accessed but absolute data integrity is less critical, for example search engines, processing is conducted on live in-memory data without all the data being backed up, which can be much faster but data can be lost when processors fail. There have been attempts to use data grid architectures with some backup to persistent stores for more important data but these have either introduced disk access bottlenecks or required manual intervention in the event of failure. Aspects of the invention provide committal of distributed transactions independently of persistent storage which can make the speed advantages of data grid computing available for high volume distributed transactions, without losing the reliability of conventional database systems. The methods, systems and architecture are independent of the nature of the application or data.
