  1. Bulk Composite Materials for Detection of Gamma Radiation

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA08005

    The objective of this proposal is to develop enabling technology for the production of bulk scintillating nanocomposites that have gamma radiation detection properties of single crystal NaI but with the manufacturability of plastic scintillators. These performance criteria may be met by developing nanoparticle polymer composites with ultra-high nanoparticle loadings. These ‘ultra-composites’ w ...

  2. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  3. Topic 8.8:Biofuels, Exelus BTL Process

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project proposes a new approach to making liquid fuels from cellulosic biomass sources (a Biomass-to-Liquids or "BTL" process) that would significantly reduce the cost and complexity of production. The project uses innovative chemistry and reactor designs to enhance efficiency, selectivity, and reduce operating condition severity. Phase I aims to demonstrate process feasibility by determ ...

  4. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our firm has been cooperating with engineers and scientists to develop materials that can be made from shredded woody debris. Field work during those projects put us in contact with many contractors and community-based organizations who were frustrated with the lack of markets for "chipped" woody biomass. We found that most community-based wildfire protection program leaders were unaware of the qu ...

  5. Mass-Rearing Predators for Augmentation Biological Control of Balsam Woolly Adelgids in Fraser Fir Plantations

    SBC: INSECT DIET & REARING INSTITUTE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEM: Efforts to control balsam woolly adelgids (BWA) with conventional pesticides have failed, and natural enemy populations are too sparse to effectively control BWA, an exotic pest destroying natural and cultivated firs in the US, including Fraser firs in Christmas tree plantations. We propose to develop the technology for a diet-based mass rearing system for brown lacewings to control BWA i ...

  6. Design and Optimization Strategies for Processing Open-Ocean Mussels in the Offshore Environment

    SBC: LANG, A E FISHING            Topic: N/A

    The demand for seafood in the United States is increasing and will continue to increase. Recent federal health guidelines call for Americans to double their consumption of seafood. The U.S. would need an additional 4 to 6 million metric tons of seafood per year over current levels if we doubled our consumption. If consumption remains at the current per capita levels, the U.S. will still require an ...

  7. Valveless temperature swing adsorption purifier for biogas from animal manures

    SBC: PROMETHEUS ENERGY COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A large number of small diary farms and hog farms in the US are considering the use of anaerobic digestion for conversion of animal manure into biogas. One difficulty they face is that existing biogas purification technology is too expensive on the scale of biogas production from smaller farms, i.e., ~0.25 MMscfd. The innovation of this Phase I project promises to significantly reduce the capital ...
