  1. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  4. Compact S-Band Pulse Compressor aka Partially Grounded Depressed Beam Collector

    SBC: omega-p r&d, Inc.            Topic: 25f

    For most accelerators, major contributions to electrical inefficiency originate with magnets and RF systems. Consequently, power supplies and high-power RF sources are logical targets for efficiency improvements. This project is to develop a means for increasing the RF source efficiency. To address RF source inefficiency, Omega-P R&D, Inc. proposes to fabricate and test during Phase II a multi-be ...

  5. Solar Energy Powered Material-Based Conversion of CO2 to Fuels

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 18f

    Conversion of carbon dioxide to useful products, including gasoline or commodity chemicals, via reaction with methane is problematic due to the energy inputs needed to overcome the large endothermic heats of reaction involved. Moreover, use of fossil fuels or carbon-based renewable fuels as energy sources will result in more CO2 released than is converted. Non-carbon renewable sources of energy, i ...

  10. 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 ...
