Xergy is an innovator in ionic materials and their packaging!
Controlling the movement of ions and molecules through nanoscale channels within ionic materials offers revolutionary pathways for development of home, energy, industrial, medical, and sensing products.
Xergy's mission is to deliver these products to the world!


THE PROBLEM:

»    Appliances using “Compressors” consume 30%+ of household energy and roughly 5% of the world’s electricity; and are       poised for exponential growth in use – due to shifts in population and applications
            »    Improvements in “compressor system” efficiency would have dramatic impact on eco-systems and sustainability

»    Non-Halogenated Based Compressor systems would also help save our atmosphere from degradation!!

»    Over 150 Million “electric motors” are produced for compressors each year ; and this is a Compressors (and refrigerants)       create significant disposal challenges

»    Compressors (and refrigerants) create significant disposal challenges




SOLUTION: “ELECTROCHEMISTRY”

Electrochemistry provides the BEST approach to controlling the thermodynamic state of systems:

→    Electrochemical systems are inherently more efficient (Exergy),
→    Electrochemical systems operate with very few or no moving parts,
→    Electrochemical systems provide a better set of design constraints
→    Electrochemical systems - eco-friendly

Also, Electrochemistry is an established field

        →     Well developed theory and literature.
        →     Inherently ‘cross-disciplinary’ effort

Recent advances in other electrochemistry such as batteries, fuel cells and industrial process have opened new possibilities. There are now new, and novel varieties of electrodes and separator/membrane materials that CAN be applied to cooling systems

XION® MEMBRANES:

Recent advances in ion exchange membrane technology are uniquely ‘enabling’; Ultra-thin, Ultra-strong, and Ultra-high performance Composite Membranes

THIS IS OUR CORE TECHNOLOGY AT XERGY


ELECTROCHEMICAL COMPRESSION:

→    “Isothermal Compression based on Electrochemical Compression” - core focus for developing advanced Heating and          Cooling systems
→    ECC’s provide inherently higher Exergy Efficiency … a solid basis for “Highest and Best Mode of Energy Conversion”
→    Working Fluids: Hydrogen, and/or Water

ECCO® Compressors: Product Concept

»    “The Most Efficient, Most Eco-friendly, Noiseless, Vibration Free,         Modular and Scalable compressor for refrigeration cycles”

»    It’s a GREEN technology. Components can be recycled.

»    Features: All Cycles using ECC’s – use Eco-friendly Refrigerant(s), are       more efficient, have no moving parts

        »    Also:

Exhibit Higher efficiency in part-load conditions, (proportional and responsive), do not need surge currents, do not need lubrication, new design possibilities…

ECCO® HEAT PUMP – WATER REFRIGERANT

1.     Water compressor requires low pressure operation (~2 kPa to 26 kPa) which is impractical          using traditional compressors

2.     Heat pump water heater compressor performance. COP >3

          »     Is highest at the Nernst potential
          »     Decreases with increasing voltage
          »     Goes to zero when the cell voltage is below the Nernst potential

ECCO® HEAT PUMP - MEMBRANE EVAPORATIVE CHILLER SYSTEM

»     Pervaporation membranes + ECC = evaporative chilling

          »     Achieve below-ambient temperatures
          »     Working with leader: Dais Analytic Corporation

»     Dais’ NanoAir™ prototype in its third generation

          »     Targets 4 to 7 COP,
          »     independent humidity control, zero fluorocarbons
          »     Dais is scaling a 7.5-ton system for trials at ORNL

»     Xergy has received a commercial order for ECC in this application

          »     Will deliver this month before end of DOE SBIR program

ECCO® HEAT PUMP - METAL HYDRIDE HEAT EXCHANGERS

»     There are compounds – such as Metal Hydrides, that can provide cooling or         heating with absorption / desorption of hydrogen at high/low pressure

»     Historically systems have poor COP, and systems have largely been         developed utilizing for example waste heat from plants/cars.

»     System feasibility (and COP) are highly affected by the energy consumed to         provide “Dry” compressed Hydrogen to the Compound. ‘Advanced’ ECC         technology can be extremely efficient, and is an ENABLING technology

          »     Xergy has proprietary “Dry” Hydrogen compression technology
          »     COP’s Upwards of 2.6 – 5.0 for say water heating, or window air conditioning
