  1. SuperChem VR: The Immersive Reality Chemistry Game

    SBC: Schell Games LLC            Topic: edIES17R0006

    SuperChemVR is a room-scale VR lab and learning game for high school chemistry students. While wearing a VR headset, students will be immersed in a simulated chemistry 3D-environment where they will be challenged to acquire basic lab and safety skills. Through actual, accurate measurement and experimentation, students will improve their understanding of chemistry practices as they learn using scie ...

  3. Integrated Cookstove-Heating-Electricity Generation for Small homes- Integrated cooking, heating, and electric power generation

    SBC: ASAT, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    _x000D_Currently available biomass heating/cooking stoves in Asia and in the USA do not efficiently cook food or heat houses while consuming too much fuel and emitting pollution, resulting in respiratory illnesses and premature death. ASAT specializes in the development and manufacturing of clean burning biomass stoves. In SBIR Phase I, ASAT developed a low emission, fuel efficient Integrated Heat ...

  4. Spouted Bed Reactor Designs for Thermal Desorption of Mercury Compounds

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    Thermal desorption systems are being utilized to remove toxic mercury compounds from coal. However, high moisture level, poor mixing, and unsuitable heating rate reduce the efficiency of thermal desorption units. Spouted bed reactor, which have been used in various physical operations such as drying, presents a possible solution in reducing moisture level and increasing particles mixing. The propo ...

  5. Subtopic Letter (d) Combustion Modeling for Direct Fired Supercritical CO2 Power Cycles


    The SCO2 Brayton cycle is gaining interest across a variety of power generation applications due to its potential for providing higher efficiencies. The range of industrial applications include: industrial waste and heat recovery, coal and nuclear power plants, and renewable energy sources such as solar thermal and fuel cells. Direct fired SCO2 cycle loops require combustors that operate beyond th ...

  6. Method for the Production of Diamond-hardfaced Titanium Carbide/titanium Bits for Geothermal Drilling

    SBC: DIAMOND MATERIALS INC            Topic: 16a

    Drilling is equally important for survey purposes, for oil and natural gas exploration, and in searches for water in arid areas. Drill bits with extended service lives are needed to improve the economics of today’s drilling systems, particularly in high temperature, high pressure and erosive gases environments encountered in deep wells close to sources of hot magma. We will develop diamond-hard ...

  7. Microwave-Fluidized Catalytic Reactor for the Direct Conversion of Methane to Higher Hydrocarbons

    SBC: H Quest Vanguard Inc            Topic: 17a

    Over the past decade, the growth of unconventional oil and gas has resulted in discovery and availability of vast quantities of natural gas across the United States. In many regions, lack or deficit of adequate infrastructure results in gas being stranded, or, in case of oil-associated gas, wastefully vented or flared, needlessly contributing to GHG emissions and global warming. Although manufactu ...

  8. AnomLoc: A perfSONAR-based Distributed Network Anomaly Detection and Localization

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: 01a

    Data-intensive scientific applications incline to high performance computing which is getting more and more widespread in supercomputing centers, research laboratories, and universities. DoE and many organizations need an automatic and adaptive network analysis tool for effective anomaly detection and localization in the high speed network. Currently approaches, Pythia, APD, etc., are unable to pr ...

  9. Venturi Draft Tube Spouted Bed Reactor for Mercury Removal from Coal


    As legislation continues to tighten regulations on emissions for coal-fired power plants, new technologies and control strategies are required. Mercury and other coal contaminants are of interest due to the cost associated with capture and disposal of toxic mercury species. More recently, the Fossil Energy program at DOE has identified spouted bed systems for thermal desorption of mercury as a via ...

  10. Electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to useful chemical intermediates


    Dependence on fossil fuels for energy has led to a far reaching secondary problem of increasing carbon dioxide concentrations. This rise in CO2, as well as the other so called “greenhouse gasses” has in turn led to global climate change, and increasing temperatures. There is a need to go beyond the basic capture and storage approaches to mitigating this CO2 rise. With the ever growing demand f ...
