  1. Renewable electricity-powered carbon dioxide conversion to ethanol for storage and transportation

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...

  2. Dynamic IR Window Film to Improve Window Energy Efficiency

    SBC: IR Dynamics            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    IR Dynamics, LLC will develop a low-cost nanomaterial technology to be incorporated into flexible window films that will improve thermal insulation and solar heat gain. The team's nanomaterial will incorporate two materials. First, low-cost nanosheets will increase thermal resistance. Second, a new type of nanomaterial will allow heat, in the form of infrared radiation (IR) from the sun, to pass t ...

  3. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Over 820 million Indians, about 65% of its population, cook on polluting open fires, causing ~1 million premature deaths annually. Fifty million households have no electricity. The Power Stove is a household energy solution combining clean cooking and reliable, ondemand power. Clean combustion and thermoelectric power technology, make it a high performance, user desirable solution based on low cos ...

  4. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharging nutrients such as phosphorus and ammonia to surface waters can have far reaching health and environmental impacts, including the formation of toxic algae blooms, eutrophication, and loss of water_x000D_ quality. The wastewater industry has a significant need for high-efficiency nutrient removal technologies. However, current nutrient removal treatment technologies can be costly and in ...

  5. Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator PV System

    SBC: Glint Photonics, Inc.            Topic: MOSAIC

    Concentrator PV systems using highly efficient multijunction photovoltaic cells hold out the promise of very low-cost solar electricity generation, but their adoption has been hamstrung by the requirement for bulky mechanical trackers that add cost, diminish land use, increase maintenance, and exclude roof-top installations. The Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator (SWAC) PV system will provides the ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. Adaptive Lens for Ocular Correction in Respiratory Protection Systems

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: CBD152001

    To address the CBDs need for adjustable optical correction technology for respiratory protective systems, Physical Optics Corporation (POC)proposes to continue the development of a new low-cost Adaptive Lens for Ocular Correction (ALOC). The ALOC is formed by thin-filmmicroarrays of wavefront correctors (MWCs), which are conformably laminated onto the facemask visor and controlled by a miniature d ...

  10. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: Nalas Engineering Services Inc            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...
