  1. Low Cost Alloys for Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12b

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

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

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    High energy physics research, modern medicine and advanced materials are continually demanding stronger 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 technolo ...

  3. Development of Production Strains of Chlamydomonas using Breeding Technologies

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

    In order to make large scale commercial production of microalgae based commodity food and fuel products, significant strides in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory thus far have been the primary strategy taken to effectively ...

  5. Integration of TRISO Fuel Particles with Open-Cell Foam for Increased Safety, Heat Transfer, and Fuel Performance

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: 33b

    Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) fuel is a key component of advanced small modular nuclear fission reactors due to its inherent safety at high temperatures and irradiation levels and decreased proliferation risk relative to current reactor fuels. A more efficient cooling method for TRISO fuel compacts would increase heat transfer, allow for an increase in fuel density, and further improve accident ...

  6. Second Generation Glass Fiber Composites Fabricated from Retired Wind Turbine Blades

    SBC: Carbon Rivers LLC            Topic: 15c

    Glass fiber is the most common reinforcement material for all polymer composites (a $43.93 billion dollar market in 2017), including all wind turbine blades of which it’s estimated there will be over 4.8 million tonnes of by 2050. However, there exists no economical method of handling these composites once they reach end of life, meaning they are all currently destined for the landfill. For wind ...

  7. The Energy and Cost-efficient E-waste recovery project for rare-earths and precious metals

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    Idaho National Laboratory (INL), under funding from the Critical Materials Institute, has developed a US patented technology to reclaim valuable metals from waste electronic equipment. The Electrochemical Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (E-RECOV) method uses an electrochemical cell to efficiently recover the bulk of metals from discarded electronics, leading to more complete recycling o ...

  8. Quench Detection Method for Large Superconducting Magnets using Robust MEMS Acoustic Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials have excellent mechanical and electrical properties. They are very attractive for various industrial applications such as power cables and high field, high current superconducting magnets. Magnets made with these materials could play a key role in the commercialization of fusion energy machines. However, HTS materials have very slow normal zone prop ...

  9. Infinitely Recyclable Bioplastics (Topic 8, subtopic b)

    SBC: SusMer, Inc            Topic: 08b

    Plastics are indispensable materials for the modern life and global economy, but current practices in the generation and disposal of commodity plastics are largely unsustainable and causing severe worldwide plastics pollution and enormous materials' energy and value losses to the economy. In particular, plastics are a material of choice in packaging applications but they are currently designed for ...
