  1. A Compact Integrated System for Air Capture of Atmospheric CO2

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 22d

    Although means currently exist to capture CO2 from combustion and other sources, capture at atmospheric levels is difficult. Once captured, CO2 needs to be released in concentrated form and sequestered: e.g., it can be buried under ocean water or in underground vaults, or it can be reacted with basic metal oxides to form metal carbonates. It may also be reduced to methane (another greenhouse gas), ...

  2. A Cost-Effective Oxygen Separation System Based on Open Gradient Magnetic Field by Polymer Beads

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 15a

    ITN Energy Systems (ITN), along with Texas A & amp;M University, proposes to demonstrate a proof-of- concept feasibility of a low cost, oxygen separation (enrichment) system that works on the interception effect of a gradient magnetic field in the presence of magnetic polymer beads. At present much of the oxygen enrichment market is based primarily on cryogenic systems, ion transport membranes mad ...

  3. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  6. A High Energy, High Power all Solid State Battery

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: 06a

    Conventional Li ion batteries have a number of limitations that prevents them from becoming the energy storage media for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Many of these limitations could be ultimately traced to properties and limitations of the liquid organic electrolytes used in the conventional Li ion batteries. Successful removal of the limitations is a prerequisite for success ...

  8. A High Temperature High Reliability Control Rod Position Sensor for Improved Nuclear Power System Instrumentation

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 19a

    Advancements are needed to improve and optimize the performance of existing and future nuclear power plants and nuclear power systems by developing and improving the reliability of advanced instrumentation. A need has been identified for an improved control rod position sensor for fault-free confirmation of control rod drive mechanism (CRDM) function, improving long term reliability, maximizing SC ...

  9. A Highly Miniaturized (CPI-Based) Cloud and Aerosol Instrument Package for Small UAVs

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Statement of the Problem: The 2013 report from the International Panel on Climate Change states that the spatial extent of Arctic sea ice has decreased in every season, and in every successive decade since 1979. Arctic summer sea ice retreat is unprecedented (9.4 to 13.6% per decade). Numerical simulations predict a nearly ice-free summertime Arctic after the middle of the 21st century. It is ...

  10. A LONG LIFE PEROVSKITE OXYGEN ELECTRODE FOR CALCIUM OXIDE PROCESSING IN NUCLEAR FUEL CYCLES

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DIRECTED TOWARDS DEVELOPING NOVEL ELECTRACTALYSIS FOR OXYGEN EVOLUTION IN ELECTROLYTIC CELLS USED FOR PROMOTING CALCIUM OXIDE SPLITTING. THE MOLTEN SALT TO BE ELECTROLYZED WILL BE CONTAINED WITHIN A DENSE, OXYGEN ANION CONDUCTING, SOLID ELECTROLYTE TUBE. THE OVERALL TECHNICAL APPROACH WILL BE SYSTEMATICALLY PURSUED IN FOUR DISTINCT STAGES DURING PHASE I AS FOLLOWS: 1) FABRICATE E ...
