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. Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 39a

    Wind power has an important role in satisfying the power needs of the United States. Since wind power is a clean renewable source of energy, it also serves an important role in reducing dependence on fossil fuels, in particular foreign oil supplies, as well as reducing greenhouse gas and carbon emissions. Unfortunately, significant maintenance costs, recently highlighted by a series of blade failu ...

  2. Multifunctional Catalyst for Coal and Biomass to Liquids Process

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    The US has abundant coal resources, but their use is constrained by excessive carbon emissions and inefficient technologies to convert them into more useful liquid transportation fuels. Co-gasification of coal and biomass is considered as a potential solution to these problems, providing a new fuel base for future energy needs. A very promising approach is to combine gasification of coal and bioma ...

  3. Catalytic Processing of Biomass to Liquid Fuels

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 13b

    The U.S. has abundant biomass resources and with the right technology, has the potential to convert these renewable resources into valuable industrial products and bio-fuels. However, current high temperature thermochemical processes to convert renewable feedstocks to fuels or chemicals such as pyrolysis and gasification or low temperature enzymatic processes are simply not cost-competitive with ...

  4. Low temperature oxidation of alkanes to alcohols

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    This SBIR Phase I project addresses the long-standing need for catalytic methods to selectively oxidize light paraffins, especially methane, to commodity alcohols like methanol using air. The goal is to create a complete, sustainable, and cost-effective technology that converts abundant, low-quality natural gas into methanol using a practical, low-temperature route. The proposed technology represe ...

  5. Jet Fuel from Bio-Diesel

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 28b

    This SBIR Phase II project addresses the pressing need to develop technologies to produce all types of transportation fuels from renewable sources. Specifically, the goal of this project is to create a complete, sustainable, and cost-effective technology that converts algae into conventional jet fuel at a sufficiently low cost as to be competitive with fossil-derived fuels. The proposed technolo ...

  6. Reduction of Porosity for High Critical Current Density Bi-2212 Superconductor Wire

    SBC: Hjc Enterprise, Llc            Topic: 62a

    The Department of Energy is seeking superconducting material for a very high-field magnet to be used in a future particle accelerator. Bi-2212 round wire, a high temperature superconductor, is one of the best candidates for this purpose. However, there are significant amount of pores present in the filament packed with powder. These pores are limiting the critical current carrying capability becau ...

  7. Femtosecond Timing Distribution and Control for Next Generation Accelerators and Light Sources

    SBC: MENLO SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Long term stable and cost effective distribution of precision timing signals with better than 100-fs precision has been a challenging task for many years in fundamental and applied science. With the dawn of fourth generation light sources, such as seeded X-ray Free Electron Lasers (X-FEL), which are currently in design and construction in the US and around the world femtosecond timing distribution ...

  9. A System for Conducting Sophisticated Mechanical Tests In Situ with High Energy Synchrotron X-Rays


    Experiments using synchrotron radiation to understand engineering material failure modes such as fracture and fatigue require specialized machinery. This machinery must be able to induce these failure modes on material specimen while adhering to strict size, weight, and geometric limitations dictated by radiation diffraction measurement techniques. This project will develop a load frame that is ca ...
