  1. Low Temperature, Electrochemical Ammonia Synthesis

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 19

    72684-Approximately 3% of the world¿s energy consumption goes into ammonia synthesis. By far, the most important method of making ammonia is the Haber-Bosch system, which accounts for over 90% of the world¿s ammonia production. However, this process suffers from low product yield and requires synthesis at high temperatures and pressures. An efficient, low-cost method for ammonia production co ...

  2. Improved Electron Yield and Spin-Polarization from III-V Photocathodes via Bias Enhanced Carrier Drift

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 44

    72323- The exploration of certain regimes of high energy physics will require the development of photocathodes with emitted electron spin-polarizations above 90%. Emitted electron spin-polarizations approaching 90% have been achieved, but at the expense of quantum yield. Because natural diffusion spatial spread disfavors complete transport to the emitting surface, this project will develop tec ...

  3. In Situ Microbial Conversion of Sequestered Greenhouse Gases

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 15

    72494-This project will use microbiological bioconversion technology in situ to convert sequestered greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, into methane and other useful organic compounds. Indigenous anaerobic bacteria will be added to coal along with supplemental nutrients to stimulate bioconversion. In Phase I, a large number of coal samples were collected from coalbed ...

  4. Reduction of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Through In Situ Bioconversion of Methane

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 30

    72593-Methane has a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide and a much shorter half-life in the atmosphere. Therefore, on a ton-by-ton basis, technology that targets methane emissions would mitigate global warming at a faster rate than the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Because methane recovery from coal mines and landfills is economically driven, and recovery proje ...

  5. Enhanced Performance Carbon Foam Heat Exchanger for Power Plant Cooling

    SBC: Ceramic Composites, Inc.            Topic: 30

    72731-Thermoelectric power plants account for 39% of the fresh water withdrawn from streams and lakes in the United States, second only to agriculture. 3.3 billion gallons daily are lost to evaporation and 190 billion returned as warm water discharge. The link between adequate supplies of low-cost energy and freshwater is clearly recognized in President Bush¿s National Energy Policy. The dem ...

  6. Novel Low-Cost Technology for Solid State Lighting


    73106-In the United States, the amount of electricity used annually for lighting residential and commercial buildings is equal to approximately 20% of the total power generated. Widespread use of white LEDs would reduce the overall electrical demand for lighting by 50%. At this time, the major hurdle for solid-state lighting is the high cost of GaN-based LED production technology. This project ...

  7. Protocol-Transparent, Universal Optical Front-End for 10 Gb/s Network Interface Cards

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: 40

    72905-High speed networks will be required to deliver the large data volumes associated with DOE science experiments. Deployment scenarios for 10 Gb/s enterprise and access networks will require optical interfaces capable of spanning distances from 100 m to 10 km. Presently available 10 Gb/s optical front-ends are not generally applicable because they are either lacking in capability or are too ...

  8. Generalized Shot-Profile Wave-Equation Imaging

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: 31

    72216-This project will develop and demonstrate a seismic data processing technology that facilitates exploration in complex geologic areas, improves reservoir characterization for both oil and gas, increases the accuracy of estimating petrophysical attributes, and decreases the costs of exploratory drilling and failed secondary recovery injection projects. The approach will use both three-dimens ...

  9. An Advanced Concept for Efficient and Cost-Effective Biomass Drying

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: 22

    72703-There is a national interest in the efficient, economical and enhanced utilization of biomass as an energy resource. Consequently, there is a need for the development of a feedstock-flexible, modular, biomass drying system that can cater to the local market drivers in an efficient, safe and environmentally responsible manner. This project will develop a pulsed combustion drying system for b ...

  10. Low-Noise Borehole Triaxial Seismometer

    SBC: Geotech Instruments, Llc            Topic: 1

    72139-A low-noise, low-power broadband borehole seismometer is required for use in networks of seismic stations for monitoring underground nuclear explosions. This project will apply the latest technology from surface broadband instrumentation to the borehole application, leading to three prototype instruments that will be suitable for noise and stability testing at a seismically quiet site. In ...
