    • Increased Oxygen Recovery from Sabatier Systems Using Plasma Pyrolysis Technology and Metal Hydride Separation 

      Greenwood, Zachary W.; Abney, Morgan B.; Perry, Jay L.; Miller, Lee A.; Dahl, Roger W.; Hadley, Neal M.; Wambolt, Spencer R.; Wheeler, Richard R. (45th International Conference on Environmental Systems, 2015-07-12)
      State-of-the-art life support carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction technology is based on the Sabatier reaction where less than 50% of the oxygen required for the crew is recovered from metabolic CO2. The reaction produces water ...
    • Plasma Extraction of Oxygen from Martian Atmosphere 

      Wheeler, Richard R. Jr.; Hadley, Neal M.; Wambolt, Spencer R.; Holtsnider, John T.; Dewberry, Ross; Karr, Laurel J. (45th International Conference on Environmental Systems, 2015-07-12)
      In support of NASA’s In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) objectives an SBIR Phase 1 effort has demonstrated conceptual feasibility of a novel Plasma Extraction of Oxygen from Martian Atmosphere (PEOMA) technology. Extraction ...
    • Third Generation Advanced PPA Development 

      Wheeler, Richard R.; Hadley, Neal M.; Wambolt, Spencer R.; Abney, Morgan B. (44th International Conference on Environmental Systems, 2014-07-13)
      A Phase 3 advanced development project has culminated in the design and fabrication of a third generation Plasma Pyrolysis Assembly (PPA), recovering up to 75% of the hydrogen currently lost as methane in Sabatier reactor ...
