  1. Novel Low Cost Two-dimensional Atomically Precise Covalent Organic Membranes

    SBC: NCO Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels has been identified as one of the most important and difficult problems facing our society. The post combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is particularly challenging due to the relatively low pressure (1 atm) and high temperature (~70 ºC) of flue gas, and its small CO2 concentration (

  2. In Situ Structural Repair and Protection of LWR Components Using Cold Spray

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 10c

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of light water nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much of the facilities reaching the end of their initial 40-year license, and with electricity demand expected to grow, the U.S. needs methods to extend the lifetime of these facilities for up to 60 years. Stress corrosion crack-susceptible nickel alloys are used in approximat ...

  3. Robotic Additive Manufacturing Path Planning via HPC

    SBC: Tucker Innovations Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Robots can drop pieces of plastic or metal in a pattern to build something but new software is needed to make the path the robot needs to follow. This work will build software that runs on high performance computers to determine the correct printing paths for the robots.

  4. Spouted Fluid Beds for Mercury Removal from Coal

    SBC: MICROBEAM TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    This Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of mitigation strategies to decrease mercury and other potential hazardous elements in coal prior to combustion or gasification. The Microbeam team including the University of North Dakota and Envergex, LLC is developing a method of coal beneficiation that not only removes mercury, sulfur and other hazardous trace elements, bu ...

  5. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Supercritical CO2 power cycles are being developed for both utility-scaled power generation applications, as well as smaller waste heat recovery applications. Supercritical CO2 cycles are more efficient than current cycles, and the associated turbomachinery components are significantly smaller than that for current steam turbine-based power generation. However, sCO2 cycles operate at a combination ...

  6. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    Several automotive industry changes are leading to the need for wide-range, high-boost turbocharging systems. Engine emission requirements require good turbocharger performance over a very wide range of flow rates. Trends in engine downsizing require turbochargers to have both good high flow performance, and good low flow performance, to cover a wide range of engine rpm operation. Current methods ...

  7. In Situ Stress Corrosion Crack Repair and Prevention for Nuclear Waste Canisters

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 30b

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much uncertainty facing long term, geologic storage facilities, long duration on-site waste storage is being considered. One potential problem facing the existing fleet of nuclear waste storage canisters is chlorine assisted stress corrosion cracking (CISCC) of austenitic stainless steel. ...

  8. Very Low-head Modular Turbine with Advanced Hydrodynamics and Power Take-off

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 15a

    According to a 2014 study commissioned by the Department of Energy, hydropower from the more than 3 million untapped streams in the U.S. could potentially generate 65 gigawatts of electricity and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution. However, the development of hydropower has been limited by several obstacles, as described by the U.S. Geological Survey: most of the prime locations ...

  9. Optical fiber integration into Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox/Ag/AgX and (RE)Ba2Cu3Ox superconducting coils

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27f

    High-temperature superconductors (HTS) are a vital technology for future particle accelerators, motors, generators and other electric power systems, fusion reactors, and many other medical and defense applications requiring high magnetic fields. One remaining limiting factor limiting to the implementation of HTS systems is the lack of adequate sensors to monitor the temperature and strain states o ...

  10. Adaptive Materials for SHM

    SBC: AURA Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT018

    Bennett Advanced Research proposes to examine fundamental properties of adaptive materials for use with Additive Manufacturing technologies. The focus will be on developing a system for spacecraft Self Health Monitoring (SHM).
