  1. High Rate Ammonia Synthesis by Intermediate Temperature Solid-State Alkaline Electrolyzer (ITSAE)

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...

  2. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  3. Low Temperature Ammonia Cracking Membrane Reactor for Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    There is growing interest in the use of ammonia as a clean alternative to fossil fuels. Ammonia belongs to a group of energy-dense liquid fuels that are much easier to store and transport than hydrogen. As ammonia decomposes to hydrogen through in a single reaction step and neither carbon oxide nor sulfur is involved in the product stream, ammonia is one of the most promising carbon neutral liquid ...

  4. Unstructured Mesh Technologies for Massively Parallel Simulation and Data Analysis of Magnetically Confined Plasmas

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 23c

    The simulation of magnetically confined plasmas requires consideration of multiple overlapping scales. Continuum models address reactor scale behaviors, while particle methods capture fine scale behavior. The complex combination of physics and reactor geometry results in simulations involving massive calculations and data sets, which can only be executed on parallel computers. Thus, there is a cri ...

  5. Commercialization of an Ultra-Thin, Bendable, High Efficacy OLED Light Engine

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 10b

    OLED lighting panels have been available commercially for several years, with relatively slow adoption into commercial and consumer fixtures in the US. This project addresses both channels through the commercialization of an ultra-thin, bendable, high-efficacy OLED light engine in which a panel and driver are engineered together in one low-cost, easy-to-use package. The most significant benefit of ...

  6. Development of the Ultra-Low Loss Superconducting Resonators Integrated with Detectors for Frequency-Domain Multiplexing Readout of Future Cosmic Microwave Background Experiments

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 28f

    Superconducting transition edge sensors are a key technology for measuring the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation leftover from the early universe. To reach the large number of sensors (~400,000-500,000) needed for next generation experiments, solutions must be found to reduce time, weight, size, and cost of the sensor arrays. This project addresses these issues by both integrating the sensors ...

  7. Production of Uranium from Seawater Using a Novel Polymer Adsorbent- Process Development and Cost Analysis

    SBC: LCW Supercritical Technologies Corporation            Topic: 32i

    Seawater contains about 3 parts per billion of uranium. With a total ocean volume of approximately 1.3109 km3, there is at least 4.5 billion tons of uranium in seawater which is about 1000 times the amount of uranium known to exist in terrestrial ores. Mining uranium from seawater is economically feasibility if an efficient, reusable and low-cost adsorbent could be developed. In the past year, ...

  8. Advanced Compliant Foil Bearings and Seals for Supercritical CO2

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 29f

    Supercritical CO2 power cycles offer the promise of high efficiency in a compact footprint with a potential to offer disruptive changes to the US energy infrastructure. Applications include bottom cycles for electric co-generation power plants, nuclear power production, concentrated solar and other renewables as well as propulsion engines for space propulsion. Aerodynamic design theory dictates th ...

  9. Supporting Multi-Physics Workflowsfor Advanced Nuclear Reactor Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    The US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Toolkithas accelerated both the solutions to existing problems and deployment of new designsfor current and advanced reactors. The task of coupling these tools into integrated workflows has now become a significant impediment to timely, cost-effective modeling and simulation for ad- vanced nuclear system design ...

  10. Integrated, Interoperable Software Environment for Fusion Simulation and Data Analysis Tools

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous - an energy system whose fuel is obtained fromsimple ingredients, and which yields zero carbon emissions to the atmosphere. However, realizing this vision requires undertaking one of the most challenging programs of scientific research and development that has ever been undertaken. Predictive simulation plays a crucial role in fusion energy research. Such s ...
