The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...

  3. Solar Guard

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: 12b

    The SolarGuard project will address the problem of detecting malicious data injection (MDI) attacks on power transmission systems handling solar power. Such attacks could cause the power transmission system to become unstable, leading to blackouts and cascade failures. MDI can also be used to perfom, high-level application attacks disrupting applications in Energy Control Centers, from Energy Mana ...

  4. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  5. Monolithic integration of high-efficiency UV photocathodes on large-area microchannel plates for high spatial and temporal resolution particle detection

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 30a

    Reliable, high-sensitivity and high-resolution photon detectors, which can alleviate major limitations imposed by photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), for future high energy physics (HEP) and nuclear physics (NP) experiments, are of great interest to DOE- Other fields that could greatly benefit from these detectors include Cherenkov telescopes in astrophysics, positron emission tomography (PET) in medica ...

  6. Hierarchical Zeolite Catalysts for Renewable Surfactants Platform

    SBC: Sironix Renewables, LLC            Topic: 09d

    Current catalytic routes to surfactants used in the $12 billion cleaning products industry are energy intensive and inefficient, producing molecules with limited function and high energy cost. There exists an opportunity to significantly reduce the energy intensity of laundry detergents production and transportation through the design of a hierarchical catalyst material that can be used to precise ...

  9. Large-area, low-voltage, GaN-based avalanche photodiode arrays for application in harsh environments.

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 28a

    For several decades photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, expensive, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there ...

  10. Micro Ion Spectrometer for Fusion Plasmas Boundary Measurements


    As magnetically confined plasmas progress towards ignition and very long pulse experiments, the physics of the pedestal and diverter regions have become increasingly important. Measurements of electron density, electron temperature, fluctuation levels, impurity content in the plasma edge, and heat loads on plasma facing components in the diverter are readily obtained with a variety of diagnostics. ...
