About Lynntech

Lynntech, Inc. is a College Station, TX based company that has received a grant(s) from the Department of Energy's SBIR/STTR program. The abstract(s) for these grant award(s) are provided as well since they provide insights into Lynntech, Inc.'s business and areas of expertise. The amount of energy stored and the efficiency of nickel-metal hydride batteries, such as those used with intermittent renewable energy sources is limited by the use of a liquid electrolyte. This project will develop a solid hydroxide electrolyte suitable for use in high powered batteries. This project will develop a catalyst to cost-effectively transform renewable sources of energy, such as fats and oils to biodiesel. This technology will reduce the United States' dependence on foreign oil and result in a net decrease in carbon dioxide emissions. This project will address the processing of heavy crude and increase limited, large scale refineries. This project will enable the cost effective refining of heavy crude in the Nation's small refineries as well, which are critical to meeting the Nation's liquid fuel supply. This project will develop a new method for harvesting algae containing bio-oils for biofuel production. This process will enable cost-effective production of advanced biofuels such as biodiesel, green diesel, green gasoline, and green jet fuel reducing our nation's dependence on foreign oil. Magnet harvesting of algae offers the prospect of a significant reduction in the cost of harvesting high oil content algae for biofuel use. Combined with algae's high fuel per acre yield, this can increase the availability of cost effective biofuels. This project will identify infrastructure problems and system requirements to design and fabricate an affordable, safe and energy efficient home hydrogen fueling appliance. It is targeted to meet hydrogen refueling needs of the average US traveler on a daily basis and has potential application as backup power source in emergencies. This project will develop technology that will produce aviation fuels from algae-derived biodiesel, which has significant energy density to be used an alternative transportation fuel source. This project aims to develop an innovative biomass preprocessing system to improve overall bioenergy production efficiency by utilizing an environmentally-friendly approach. The broadbased capabilities of this technology will enable it to perform multiple tasks in a single unit of operation. Renewable fuels from biological feedstocks such as ethanol and biodiesel have been recognized as attractive renewable energy sources; however, the inherently high production costs of these fuels have hampered their widespread application. This project will produce highly efficient catalysts for refining of biological feedstocks offers high efficiency and low-cost production. This project will develop a novel diesel fuel reformer which will provide high quality fuel gas to a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system with high efficiency and low system complexity. The system will enable SOFC Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) in the 1 - 5 kW range to become economically viable.

The distribution node is configured to divide each source correlithm object of a correlithm object mapping table into at least a first portion that comprises a first subset of the binary values in that source correlithm object and a second portion that comprises a second subset of the binary values in that source correlithm object. The first calculation node stores the first portion of each source correlithm object. The second calculation node stores the second portion of each source correlithm object.

The distribution node is configured to divide a correlithm object mapping table into at least a first portion and a second portion. The first portion of the mapping table includes a first subset of the source correlithm objects and their corresponding target correlithm objects. The second portion of the mapping table includes a second subset of the source correlithm objects and their corresponding target correlithm objects. The first and second calculation nodes store the first and second portions of the correlithm object mapping table, respectively. [G06F] ELECTRIC DIGITAL DATA PROCESSING (computer systems based on specific computational models G06N) Computer architecture for emulating a correlithm object processing system that places multiple correlithm objects in a distributed node network Assignee(s): Bank of America Corporation (Charlotte, NC) Law Firm: No Counsel Application No., Date, Speed: 15936105 on 03/26/2018 (1051 days app to issue) Abstract: A distributed node network to emulate a correlithm object processing system includes a distribution node, a first calculation node, and a second calculation node. The distribution node stores a correlithm object mapping table that comprises a plural
