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. Oxygen Separation with Dual Phase Nano-Composite Membrane

    SBC: Global Research and Development Inc.            Topic: 14a

    This Phase IIA proposal is in response to the DOE topic 14a request for breakthrough membrane technology that reduces the energy required to separate gases. In this work we are addressing O2 separation. There is a need for lower capital cost, and lower energy consumption in producing high purity oxygen for steel production, chemical processing, medical oxygen, and burning coal for higher efficienc ...

  2. Novel Coating Technologies for Neutrino Focusing Horns

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    This technology addresses the need for a cost effective, simple and environmentally benign process to replace the current electroless nickel coating on Neutrino Focusing Horns, which are made of aluminum. One big challenge for depositing a coating on aluminum is that a special pretreatment is required owing to aluminum’s highly reactive nature. Even though the electroless nickel coating has been ...

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 02a

    The cost of the accelerating waveguide in modern medical accelerators and industrial linacs is substantial. This comes to no surprise, as the accelerating waveguide is a set of diamond – turned copper resonators brazed together. Such a multistep manufacturing process is not only expensive, but also prone to manufacturing errors, which decrease the production yield. In the big picture, the cost o ...

  6. Geothermal Heat Pump & Phase Change Material Super-Hybrid Systems

    SBC: Melink Corporation            Topic: 07a

    The purpose of this DOE Phase 2 grant application is to further validate the geothermal HVAC installation savings made evident from our Phase 1 research. Moreover, it is to commercialize the solutions that will make these savings possible. This is important because geothermal HVAC systems are the most energy-efficient heating/cooling system known, according to the DOE. But the technology has not g ...

  7. An integrated Process for Butanol Production from Cellulosic Biomass and CO2 Using Engineered Clostridia in a Linear Immobilized Bioreactor

    SBC: Bio-Missions LLC            Topic: 08b

    Engineered platforms using mixed microbial consortia to consolidate multiple reaction steps and perform disparate conversions simultaneously can substantially enhance the carbon efficiency of biomass conversion processes and lower the biofuel cost to an economically competitive level. In this project, an integrated process will be developed to produce n-butanol from cellulosic biomass and waste ga ...

  8. Nanoengineered Soft Magnetic Materials

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: 05c

    The rapid expansion of renewable and distributed energy sources requires significant changes to the electric grid.Primary among these is the ability to move and store energy, converting from low DC sources to high voltage for transmission. Reducing losses in the conversion process is essential to this function. Wide Band Gap semiconductors are becoming available to dramatically reducing switching ...

  9. An Ultra-High Gradient Travelling Wave Gun

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 23b

    High brightness beams enable novel applications like x-ray free electron lasers and ultrafast electron microscopes. High brightness beams essentially consist of a large number of electrons in a small phase space volume, i.e. a high peak current. When such beams are generated from the cathode, there is a strong space charge force, which elongates the bunch and reduces its brightness. An optimal sol ...

  10. Electro-dewatering of Cellulosic Nanomaterials

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 06b

    Cellulosic nanomaterials exhibit great potential in various applications due to their unique properties. Additionally, abundant availability of feedstock has led to realization of industrial manufacturing of nanocellulose. Although in excess, a significant cost-limiting factor to utilize cellulosic nanomaterials, however, is separation of the nanomaterials from the suspensions in which they are gr ...
