  2. A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR EFFICIENT PRODUCTION OF LIQUID FUELS FROM COAL USING FLASH PYROLYSIS IN VIBRATED FLUIDIZED BEDS

    SBC: Pai Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN SPITE OF MAJOR EFFORTS TO DEVELOP PROCESSES FOR CONVERTING COAL INTO LIQUID HYDROCARBONS FOR MOTOR FUEL, NONE HAS ATTAINED COMMERCIAL VIABILITY BECAUSE OF DIFFICULTIES WITH POOR CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND HIGH CAPITAL COSTS. THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE COUPLING OF FLASH PYROLSIS WITH NEW ADVANCES IN VIBRATED FLUIDIZED BEDS AND PROMISES TO REDUCE COAL-PARTICLE DWELL TIME AND THE TIME TO QUENCH ...

  4. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  5. APPLYING A NOVEL STEAM AND CARGON DIOXIDE COMBINATION PROCESS IN HEAVY OIL AND TAR SAND RESERVOIRS

    SBC: R. L. Clampitt And            Topic: N/A

    THE UNITED STATES HAS A LARGE NATURAL RESOURCE OF HEAVY OIL DEPOSITS RANGING FROM 85 TO 100 BILLION BARRELS. THE LARGEST OF THESE ARE IN CALIFORNIA AND ALASKA. TODAY OVER 80 PERCENT OF THE OIL FROM ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY (EOR) RESULTS FROM STEAMFLOODING TECHNIQUES IN THESE LOW GRAVITY, HIGH VISCOSITY, OILCONTAINING RESERVOIRS. MOST OF THE COMMERCIAL PROJECTS ARE IN CALIFORNIA. THEY USE BOTH THE CON ...

  6. Developing Biomineralization Technology for Ensuring Wellbore Integrity

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Since drilling the earliest gas and oil wells, migration of hydrocarbons to the surface has challenged the oil and gas industry. With the recent onset of geologic CO2 sequestration activities, it has become even more important to develop well leakage mitigation strategies that can seal even microscopic apertures around injection, abandoned, and monitoring wells—especially in cases where traditio ...

  7. Development of an In-situ Environmental Fluid Cell Electrical Biasing and Heating Platform for Synchrotron X-ray Microscopy

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 03d

    Continuous miniaturization of devices surrounding people demands for improvements in materials design and manufacturing, which in turn requires high resolution compositional and chemical analysis. This proposal focuses on the development of a tool for material property and structure characterization studies in the environment those materials operate using X-ray microscopy.

  8. Development of an In-Situ Method for Cable Condition Monitoring Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 14c

    The sustainability of current fleet of nuclear power plants depends on the performance of key components such as cables which cannot easily or economically be replaced. The product of this project will provide the technology to verify the performance of cable insulation material that can degrade as plants age.

  10. High Quality Natural Graphite for Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 14a

    This project will develop state-of-the-art processes for the conversion of natural flake graphite and other graphitic materials into high quality lithium-ion battery (LIB) grade anode materials. This will enable a $1B industry to develop and create a supply chain for graphite that does not exist in the United States today. This project will complete 4 years of work by Coulometrics to develop new e ...
