  2. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  3. Microgrid Wind Turbine for Distributed Generation

    SBC: Pika Energy Llc            Topic: 07c

    Establishing a secure domestic supply of clean energy has emerged as an existential challenge facing the US, given geopolitical threats to global energy supplies and serious risks arising from climate change. Utility-scale wind turbine technology has grown rapidly to supply 2% of US electricity needs, but many regions are not suitable for large wind turbines. Distributed generation of wind energy ...

  4. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    Increasing the steam temperature of supercritical boilers from 1,000F to 1,400F can raise the operating efficiency of next-generation AUSC coal-fired power plants from about 32% to about 42% and address compelling environmental issues, while also enhancing national security, domestic employment, economic stability, balance of trade and U.S. GDP through increased use of domestic coal. Low Cr conten ...

  5. High Energy Density Li-ion Battery with Enhanced Safety, Durability, and Sustainability

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: 10e

    Conventional Li-ion cells/batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles have difficulty meeting USABC goals for performance/cost that are required for commercially-viable EV. The prevailing large format pouch/prismatic has the advantage of low packaging weight/volume, 10% at cell level, but is doubled (100% increase) in transitioning to the battery. Aside from the reduced energy density (accommodatio ...

  6. Ultra High Power NSOM Probe Based on Low Loss High Refractive Index Contrast Nanoscale Tip Integrated with Laser and Detector

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: 16b

    Near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) offers the use of a nano-dimension light energy source with a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of light to achieve resolutions significantly (around 10 times) better than that of the usual optical microscope. NSOM has found wide usages and become an important measurement instrument for nano-technologies, nano-manufacturing, optical technologie ...

  7. Adjustable High Power Coax RF Coupler without Moving Parts

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 13c

    A 200 kW CW fundamental RF power coupler (FPC) with an adjustable in situ coupling factor would be highly desirable for a number of applications; for example, the 352 MHz light source at APS. The normal process of adjusting the coupling by rotational movement usually requires breaking the vacuum between the coupler and the RF cavity resulting in prolonged down-times and the risk of introducing con ...

  8. Photoinjector Efficiency Enhancement using Surface Acoustic Waves

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 14a

    Current and future synchrotron radiation light sources and free electron laser facilities are in need of improvements in Electron Gun Technology, especially regarding the cost and efficiency of photoinjectors. Novel electron gun features are needed to enhance the intensity and reduce the emittances of electron bunches produced at a high repetition rate using laser excitation. The generation of Sur ...

  9. Low-Cost Two-Stage Magnetron with Power Control for Project X

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 60c

    State of the art high intensity proton accelerators require the development of low cost, reliable RF sources with phase stability of less than 1 degree and amplitude control of +/- 15%. These power sources feed superconducting RF cavities for linacs capable of accelerating protons and ions up to several GeV. A two-stage phase-locked magnetron RF source based on the principle of reflection amplifie ...

  10. Highly Efficient Sources of Negative Hydrogen Ions

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 60e

    The development of H- ion sources with performance exceeding those achieved today is a key requirement for the next generation of high power proton accelerators. Project X at Fermilab needs a CW H- Ion Source that satisfies demanding performance specifications: 10 mA CW beam current with normalized transverse rms emittance 0.2 mm mrad, fast chopping capability, fast intensity variation, and long ...
