  1. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  2. A Comprehensive Web Infrastructure for Standardizing, Storing, and Launching Density Functional Calculations of Materials and Chemical Compounds

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: 9a

    Density functional theory is used by many researchers funded by the Department of Energy as a method for predicting the behavior of chemicals and materials used in energy applications. However, results of these calculations are often not standardized and, even when they are, expert-level understand of the methods is needed in order to properly perform a simulation. The energy research community a ...

  3. Method for Separation of Coal Conversion Products from Sorbents/Oxygen Carriers

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 20e

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of a technology for segregating fuelbased contaminants (char and ash) from oxygen carrier material in the context of chemical looping combustion application. In chemical looping, the wellmixed solids that flow from the fuel reactor consisting of char, ash, and oxygen carrier particles cannot be completely separated in ...

  4. Algal Bioflocculation for SolidLiquid Separation

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 12c

    A key requirement for microalgae biofuels production is a very low cost harvesting technology. Commercially available solidliquid separation technologies applicable to microalgae, such as chemical coagulation, membrane separations and centrifugation, are too costly for biofuels production or other lowcost microalgae processes, such as wastewater treatment. A low cost harvesting process is bio floc ...

  5. Novel Carbon Fiber Synthesis Process Based on Joule Heating

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 11c

    Current methods for manufacturing carbon fiber rely on high temperature ovens for the stabilization/oxidation and carbonization steps, which tend to be slow and energy intensive. As such, carbon fiber composites are expensive then steel, which limits their use in costsensitive, highvolume industrial applications such as automobiles, oil and gas, and infrastructure. To reduce energy consumption and ...

  6. 26(a): High Duty Cycle Inverse Free Electron Laser

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 26a

    Laser based advanced accelerators can achieve very high accelerating gradients, but their duty cycle is limited by the laser power availability and media recovery time. Inverse Free Electron Laser (IFEL) is a vacuum farfield laser accelerator scheme which does not rely on a medium (plasma) or a structure (metal or electric) and therefore is potentially capable of accelerating charged particles ver ...

  7. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC            Topic: DLA15C001

    "Micro-calorimetry is a Nondestructive Test (NDT) capable of detecting heat characteristics that could identify improperly processed, counterfeit, substandard, nonconforming or fake raw material prior to materials introduction into end-product production cycles. Current calorimetric technology is an extremely sensitive, expensive and time consuming process, utilizing an adiabatic or semi-adiabat ...

  8. Using Magnetic Levitation for Non-Destructive Detection of Defective and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: DLA15C001

    The introduction of substandard or counterfeit materials into the DoD supply chain can have extremely expensive, and potentially life threatening, consequences. Current techniques used to detect nonconforming materiel can be destructive (e.g., manual sectioning and inspection of a part), time consuming and expensive (e.g., micro-computed tomography, ultrasound), or provide only limited informatio ...

  9. Coversion of waste water treatment plant fats oils and greases "brown grease" into bio diesel using supercitical fluids and robust catalyst processes./ Same as LOI on headers

    SBC: CF Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10

    The Department of Energy has a mission to ensure America's prosperity and security by addressing energy and environmental challenges. This Phase I project aims to produce domestic, economic and environmentally responsible biodiesel fuel from brown grease, a waste that is currently disposed in landfills or incinerated. The conversion of "brown grease" from wastewater treatment plant’s fats oils a ...

  10. Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Nanocomposite as Radiation-resistant Electrical Insulator

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 20

    The Department of Energy needs improved radiation resistant electrical insulation materials for the superconducting magnet coils in fusion reactors. To achieve safe, reliable, economic and environmentally benign fusion energy system, DOE is seeking organic/inorganic insulation-capable materials that are wrappable. These materials under irradiation will enable magnet coils to: (1) operate reliably ...
