  1. 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, ...

  2. Using a Plasma Fuel Reformer to Extend Combustion Lean Limits

    SBC: INENTEC, INC.            Topic: 22c

    There is a clear and unmet need for technologies to improve power generation flexibility to enable cost effective and reliable high renewable energy fractions in modern grids. Specifically, gas turbine generator turndown ratio may be improved by extending combustion lean flammability limits. This project will deliver a prototype plasma reformer system integrated with gas turbine combustors to allo ...

  3. Enhanced Electronic Interconnects using ZTACH ACA:No Pressure, Low-Temperature, Self-Assembly Material Process

    SBC: Sunray Scientific LLC            Topic: 27e

    Upcoming HEP projects require physical and electrical bonds between opposite points of thin parallel circuit faces which areless than 50 microns in pitch, but current methods, such as bump-soldering and anisotropic conductive adhesives (ACA) and films (ACF) cannot reach these resolution limits and furthermore require heat and pressure that damage delicate circuitry. SunRay ZTACH™ is an anisotrop ...

  5. Controlled-porosity ceramic materials for high temperature downhole applications

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of high performance downhole components and materials is necessary to enable geothermal exploration and production capabilities in high pressure and high temperature applications. Conventional well materials are poorly suited for corrosive environments. Steel casing, screens, and other wellbore components are susceptible to corrosion in extreme geothermal conditions. An ideal replaceme ...

  6. An isogeometric approach to streamlining high-end structural dynamics simulation for automotive and other applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: 02a

    A significant problem in automotive, defense, and other industries is the complexity of setting up and running simulations for various aspects of a design to ensure accuracy, assess failings, and predetermine fatal and non-fatal errors. A high-prole and increasingly important type of simulation is the modeling of crash phenomena, where today's best methods require millions of dollars of manual lab ...

  8. Step-Out Process to Upgrade Clycerol to Bio-Diesel

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 07

    The production of biodiesel around the world is increasing at an astonishing pace. In the U.S., total annual production capacity is expected to be almost 2 billion gallons by the end of 2008. At this production rate, over 660,000 metric tons of glycerol will be produced as a by-product each year ¿ over 2.5 times the current U.S. glycerol production capacity ¿ creating a glycerol glut with few ...

  9. A Cost-Effective Analytical Technology for Identification and Measurement of Greenhouse Gases

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: 47

    This project will develop a cost-effective analytical technology platform for identifying and measuring concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide and trace greenhouse gas constituents such as carbon monoxide. The proposed analytical platform is based on Penning Ionization Electron Spectroscopy (PIES) in plasma. PIES technology relies on a simple analog ...

  10. A New Sorbent for Removal of Mercury from Flue Gas: A Lower Cost Alternative to Activated Carbon-REVISED

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21

    The cost of reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants is an impediment to the implementation of new mercury emission standards, particularly in older power plants. The use of a sorbent to capture mercury from the flue gas is considered to be the most effective approach, but issues pertaining to secondary emissions and the degradation of the fly-ash byproduct (which results from entr ...
