  1. A Novel Catalytic Reactor For Conversion Of CO2 Into Benzene

    SBC: Susteon Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Almost 15 million metric tons per year of essentially pure CO2 is captured in the United States from ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, and natural gas processing plants. Some of this CO2 is used for merchant applications such as food and beverage and other applications, but a large portion of this captured CO2 is emitted to the atmosphere. This CO2 can be converted into high value chemicals, but the key ...

  2. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  3. Low-temperature chemical looping reforming catalysts for small-footprint GTL

    SBC: Catalytic and Redox Solutions, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Methane from U.S. shale deposits has significantly increased the usable amount of this domestic energy resource. Meanwhile, flaring of natural gas, which is commonly practiced in shale-oil production, exceeded 6 billion cubic meters in the United State annually. This leads to a waste of valuable energy resources and significant emissions of greenhouse gas. As such, small-footprint technologies tha ...

  4. No Stress PFC Bonding Technology

    SBC: SEALED OPTICS COMPANY            Topic: 23a

    Electric power generation regularly necessitates the conversion of heat into useful work. Except for some renewable forms, all energy production involves high-temperature. In cases such as fusion, fission, gas-turbine, and fuel cells, the operating temperatures can be very high. Working parts exposed to these environments are thermally stressed. The material joints found in multi-component parts m ...

  5. 3b Multi-modal small sensor package

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 03b

    Detecting and characterizing facilities and performing emergency location requires multi-modal, persistent surveillance by sensing and analysis. Infrasound and radio frequency direction finding (RF-DF) sensors have the proven ability to provide standoff detection. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of a small sensor package designed for small and medium unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) wi ...

  6. 20b Pup joint telemetry system

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 20b

    The proposed effort is a critical part of MVA programs for CO2 sequestration. The benefits include improved zonal isolation, higher data rates, and longer sensor battery life. Understanding reservoir stability and annulus cementing integrity will help determine new isolation criteria and verify existing operation. The new sequestration wells have applicability for greenhouse gas storage, environme ...

  7. Behind-the-Meter, Distributed Scale CSP System Enabled by Very Low-cost Working Fluid and Thermal Storage

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12f

    In some areas of the USA and Europe, the installed capacity of renewable generation has reached a level at which wholesale energy prices can drop below zero due to overproduction relative to baseload capacity. The value of energy exported to the grid for behind-the-meter (BTM) systems is dropping, with policies in many states now promoting self-consumption of produced energy rather than net-meteri ...

  8. High Current Plasma Cathode for Accelerators

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 26d

    A rugged reliable cathode technology for application in superconducting radio frequency industrial linear accelerators will be developed. The non-thermionic cathode has no low work function surfaces and as a result is not sensitive to background gases or pressure. The high current cathode operates in pulsed mode over a wide frequency range. The simple construction of the cathode makes it easy to r ...

  9. Compact Electron and X-ray Irradiation System to Enable Insect Sterilization

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 04c

    A low cost compact, man-portable, x-ray irradiation system for application of the sterile insect technique will be developed. A scalable cathode will provide large area electron sources which will enable production of compact x-rays sources. A system which employs four such panels surrounding the irradiation chamber provides a uniform flux through which containers can move on a conveyor system. Th ...

  10. Advanced Coatings for Improved Diesel Engine Durability and Efficiency

    SBC: Novus Energy Technologies Inc.            Topic: 13c

    Current-generation heavy-duty diesel engines typically exhibit an engine efficiency of about 45%, the remaining energy used for running auxiliary systems or lost as heat or friction. Heavy-duty vehicles lose on average about 20% of the fuel energy inside the combustion chamber as heat to the coolant and 30% as heat to the exhaust. Increasing the efficiency of diesel engines while simultaneously im ...
