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. Electrodecontamination for Mitigation of Airborne Contamination

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 11

    72679-Radioactively contaminated surfaces within Department of Energy and commercial nuclear facilities endanger workers and create problems with waste handling and disposal. Current methods for removing these radiological contaminants are expensive, use hazardous chemicals or dangerous rotating machinery, release removed materials into the airspace surrounding the jobsite, and generate considera ...

  2. Situational Awareness Monitor for Nuclear Events

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 1

    72275-With the ever-present threat of terrorist attacks on American soil, it is increasingly important to monitor pre-nuclear-event warning signs and provide post-nuclear-event assessment for use in consequent management and emergency response. In particular, major urban centers are potential targets of nuclear attacks, ¿dirty bomb¿ attacks, and chemical/biological agent attacks. This project ...

  3. Use Of Amended Silicates for Multi-Pollutant Control in Gasifiers

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 42

    75570-Coal gasification is a promising technology for reducing U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources. However, the development of efficient and cost effective pollution control technologies will be required before coal gasification can be introduced on a commercial scale. In particular, the removal of sulfur species and trace metals (mercury, arsenic, and selenium) presents a technical and e ...

  4. Novel Polymer Nanocomposite Processing

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 20

    72212-The uniform dispersion of nanoceramic filler particles within a polymer matrix, for producing high quality polymer/ceramic nanocomposites, is a very time-and energy-intensive process. The development of efficient methods for uniformly dispersing nanoceramic inclusions, which are well-adhered to the polymer throughout the polymer matrix, and for fabricating parts from such composites at low ...

  5. Conversion of Low-Temperature Waste Heat to Electric Power Utilizing Hermetic Organic Rankine Cycle

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: 41

    76206-Heat is generated and used in many industrial processes. Although, the remaining low-temperature heat from these processes is typically dispersed to the atmosphere, this waste heat could be utilized to produce electric power for on- or off-grid use. This project addresses this need through the development of an Organic Rankine Cycle engine that utilizes a hermetic seal-less approach for co ...

  6. Improvement of Cool Season Oilseeds to Support Economically Competitive Bio-Diesel Production on the Central High Plains

    SBC: BLUE SUN BIODIESEL LLC            Topic: 18

    72599-Our nation¿s increasing dependence on foreign oil is a threat to our economic stability and security, and continues to boost our trade deficit. A significant increase in renewable, cleaner-burning biofuels, such as biodiesel, offers the potential to address all of these issues. However, biodiesel market penetration is severely limited by high feedstock (vegetable oil) costs associated wit ...

  7. Demonstration of an Integrated Modular Bipower System and Commercial Burner for Drying Biomass and Agricultural Products Using Agricultural and Forest Residues


    72089-Most conventional dryers for biomass are designed to use fossil fuels such as natural gas and propane. Unfortunately, natural gas and propane are costly, non-renewable, subject to price volatility, and increasingly being imported. The use of agricultural and forest residues could displace virtually all fossil fuels used for drying, provide another revenue source for the nation¿s farmers a ...

  8. Innovative Inorganic Fusion Magnet Insulation Systems


    72206-Magnet systems for Next Step Option (NSO) fusion devices will require insulation systems that can tolerate exposure to high levels of radiation as well as both cryogenic and elevated temperatures. Currently available insulation systems either: (1) do not meet these requirements; or (2) compromise the magnet system design or economics to such an extent as to make them unfeasible. This proj ...

  9. Innovative, Low Cost, Radiation-Resistant Fusion Magnet Insulation


    75747-Newly designed and proposed fusion magnet systems will require electrical insulation capable of withstanding high temperatures and high radiation doses. The lack of cost-effective, radiation-resistant insulation systems is compromising the design and operation of these devices. Therefore, this project will develop and formulate new, low cost organic resins from completely new chemistries, ...

  10. A Remote and Affordable Detection System for Cr(VI) in Groundwater


    72353-Chromium contamination is a widespread problem within the DOE complex. This project will develop a a compact, portable, low-cost detection system for the electrochemical monitoring of hexavalent chromium in groundwater. The novel electrocatalytic approach employs robust, screen-printed electrodes that can specifically detect Cr(VI) in the presence of Cr(III) using a simple flow injection a ...
