  1. A Contaminant Tolerant Solvent for Carbon Capture in Existing Coal-Fired Power Plants

    SBC: Green Technology Ltd Co.            Topic: 23a

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will study the feasibility of a novel contaminant-tolerant solvent/stripping chemical hybrid process for post-combustion CO2 capture from utility flue gas. The process will use a proprietary solvent technology to achieve DOEs goal of 90% or greater CO2 emissions reduction at existing coal-fired power plants with no more than a 30% increase in ...

  2. A Contaminant Tolerant Solvent for Carbon Capture in Existing Coal-Fired Power Plants

    SBC: Green Technology Ltd Co.            Topic: 23a

    In the context of post-combustion CO2 capture processes, solvents with fast CO2 absorption rates will require more energy for regeneration. This challenge is exacerbated when aqueous solvents are applied to the capture of post-combustion CO2 from a utility gas stream, which contains such unique characteristics as high volumetric flow rate, low CO2 vapor pressure, and the presence of gas contaminan ...

  4. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  5. A Mesh Free Framework for Mechanical Simulations of Microstructure Data Files

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 07a

    The Exascale Computing Project is tasked to develop the next generation of high performance computing systems capable of computing at 50 to 100 times faster than current HPC systems. Computing at this extreme-scale will significantly enhance the value of materials modeling and simulation to basic materials research and engineering In particular, computing at the extreme scale will enable a higher ...

  6. A Multi-physics Analysis Capability for Engine Materials

    SBC: Sunergolab Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Computer-aided Engineering software that apply the Finite Element Method to perform a multi-physics analysis have received widespread acceptance for traditional macro-scale material systems. Challenges persist in the modeling of complex coupled processes in environmental/thermal barrier coatings (E/TBCs) used to protect substrate material against the corrosive environment in the hot section parts ...

  7. Carbon Nanofiber [F-18] Fluoride Ion Concentration for High Speed Biomarker Production

    SBC: NANOTEK, LLC            Topic: 04b

    78954 The DOE has expressed a need for developing tools that can improve and simplify production of radiolabeled compounds. Conventional synthesis of PET radiotracers is hampered by the complex and sensitive synthesis processes that often produce low yields, consume costly precursors, and can take hours to complete. If fluoride ion could be concentrated into microliter volumes of dry solvent qui ...

  8. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...

  9. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...

  10. Development and Neutronic Validation of Pelletized Cold and Very Cold Moderators for Pulsed Neutron Sources

    SBC: Cryogenic Applications F, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Existing and planned neutron facilities, such as the Spallation Neutron Source, generate bursts of cold neutrons for materials research. The efficiency of the beam line components, which convert the fast neutrons to a cold neutron beam, determines the usefulness of the facility. Existing solid methane moderators have a high efficiency, but cannot be scaled to work on high power facilities. A co ...
