  4. Catalytic Process to Produce High Value Platform Chemicals from Biomass-Derived Lignin

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: 13a

    The cost of feedstock is a dominant factor in the final cost of renewable biofuel production. Therefore, maximizing the value of each biomass component is an ideal opportunity to improve the economics and commercial potential of lignocellulosic biomass conversion to liquid fuels. Biomass is composed of three main constitutive bio-polymers: cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin. Lignin is a highly c ...

  5. In-situ formation of ceramic well liner patches

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of corrosion-resistant wellbore components and remedial seal solutions is critical to mitigating wellbore loss of injected CO2 from geologic storage systems. Poor wellbore integrity impacts the performance of carbon dioxide sequestration reservoirs by unintentionally releasing the sequestered CO2 to the atmosphere. A particularly difficult sealing application is the emplacement of casi ...

  7. A compact, high-performance imaging spectroradiometer

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Statement of the Problem: Large-area, high-resolution hyperspectral imaging is needed to accurately understand the carbon-cycle between the atmosphere and terrestrial systems. To do this cost-effectively, small UAVs will be needed, for which there are currently no hyperspectral imagers that meet both the performance requirement of DOE and the size/weight requirements for deployment on small UAVs. ...

  8. A Low Cost Multipoint Gas Sensor for Monitoring Subsurface Isotopologues


    Statement of the Problem Isotopologues are a critical tool in monitoring plant hydrobiogeochemical and microbial systems and processes. The most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which have naturally occurring stable isotope forms that can be used as natural tracers for understanding and int ...

  9. Rapid Scanning Surface NMR for Efficient Land and Airborne Hydrogeologic Mapping

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Statement of the problem that is being addressed: This proposal addresses the challenge of non-invasively measuring subsurface hydrogeologic properties that control the transport of contaminants and availability of groundwater resources, and efficiently mapping these properties over wide areas of the shallow subsurface (upper ~50m). General statement of how this problem is being addressed: We wil ...
