  4. A Scale Up Reactor for a Novel Quartz Based Methane Aromatization Catalyst

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    The United States chemical market relies on many petroleum based chemicals, such as ethylene, benzene, or toluene, as building blocks for other chemical products. Recently, the United States has put much effort into recovering the abundant amounts of shale gas. The Department of Energy is seeking novel catalytic processes to help produce from natural gas the same chemicals that historically have h ...

  5. Ultra High-Temperature Magnetic Bearing System for s-CO2 Turbines/Expanders

    SBC: ELECTRON ENERGY CORPORATION            Topic: 30f

    High performance supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) turbo-expanders/power turbines will provide significant increases in efficiency and compactness, while reducing greenhouse gases and water usage. However, the needed operation in a 900°C environment is a challenge for this type of turbomachinery. While magnetic bearings have many advantages over foil bearings, including no wear during startups, ...

  6. Very High Field Hybrid Superconducting Magnet Using Bi-2212

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    Hig e and advanced materials are continually demanding higher magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of high temperature superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technology have remained elusive. Great progress h ...

  7. Development of breeding strategies for Nitzschia sp.

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    Renewable algae fuels are the source of energy for the future. It was demonstrated that algae fuels can be produced and they were successfully used in demonstration airplane flights and cars. The cost of algae oil is still high and cannot compete with fossil fuels. High algae growth and ability to accumulate oil fast are the key factors that will make algae based biofuels affordable. Diatoms are t ...

  9. Development of Intelligent Systems for Atomically Precise Membranes, Macromolecular Catalysts and Therapeutics

    SBC: ThirdLaw Technologies LLC            Topic: 06a

    The discovery of advanced materials and molecules is difficult and largely an experimental endeavor. Computers are used to simulate materials and molecules but rarely to design them. We aim to demonstrate that novel materials and molecules can be computationally “evolved” using Genetic Programming, and we will develop: (1) Atomically precise membranes that would separate molecules at a fractio ...
