Tech Needs of the Week

An organization seeks to replace a portion of the starch currently used in its snack foods with protein. While proteins provide the same caloric load as carbohydrates, they are metabolized much more slowly. One potential difficulty is the protein's reaction to heat, which is used to bake or fry many foods. Heat can cause proteins to become rubbery, or to change shape, texture, or mouth feel.

Techs of the Week

A modular direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) cartridge and stack design offers flexible assembly, efficiency improvements, and higher performance in methanol fuel cell assemblies. Conductive polymer micro DMFC plates with different flow field designs were evaluated to determine their performance efficiencies. Higher power densities were obtained for polymer plates with specific flow field designs. The technology provides a fuel cell plate design that optimizes fluid flow field efficiency, and presents a method for heating the direct methanol fuel cell stack on startup.
