  2. High Oxygen/Nitrogen Selectivity Membrane

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12d

    This program develops a novel membrane module which produces low cost oxygen enriched air. This program will 1) reduce energy requirements for small or medium size furnaces by up to 60% and 2) provide high CO2 concentration exhaust streams for enhanced concentrating of CO2 for CO2 sequestering.

  4. Robotic Additive Manufacturing Path Planning via HPC

    SBC: Tucker Innovations Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Robots can drop pieces of plastic or metal in a pattern to build something but new software is needed to make the path the robot needs to follow. This work will build software that runs on high performance computers to determine the correct printing paths for the robots.

  5. Large-Format, High-Throughput Photon-Counting Imager

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 07a

    Low‐cost, power‐efficient, time‐resolved imaging is increasingly important for Department of Energy remote‐sensing operations. Today’s remote‐sensing operations use photocathode‐based technologies, such as intensified CCDs and CMOS cameras, hybrid image tubes, and hybrid cross‐strip anode image intensifiers. These solutions are expensive, bulky, cannot support high count rates, hav ...

  6. PEM based Vacuum Desalination System

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 09c

    The Company’s development is addressing one of the most basic human needs: access to potable water. Without adequate potable water, society succumbs to human suffering i.e. dehydration, disease and inevitably limited supply results in human conflict. There is therefore a need for an efficient, and cost effective method of producing quality potable water from low grade sources such as brackish or ...

  7. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  8. Hybrid Membrane Distillation Process for Enhanced Integrated Ethanol Production

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    The conversion of corn and other biomass to fuel grade ethanol not only would reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources but also would be a major industrial application for agricultural products. However, the process of drying the ethanol to fuel grade consumes significant amounts of energy, incurring costs that continue to increase as cost of natural gas increases. This project will deve ...

  9. Hybrid Anti-Fouling Membrane System for Natural Gas Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    The need for natural gas continues to grow, and recent increases in petroleum prices have been paralleled by large increases in the price of natural gas. However, natural gas at the source often has high concentrations of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which must be removed. Although existing commercial polymeric membranes (e.g. cellulose acetate and polysulfone) do a good job of sweetenin ...

  10. Low Cost Carbon Fiber Composites for Lightweight Vehicle Parts

    SBC: MATERIALS INNOVATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 27

    The U.S. could significantly reduce oil consumption by decreasing the weight of its automobile fleet, especially by using lightweight carbon composite materials. However, lightweight materials in automobile structures have been problematic for two reasons: (1) the high cost of carbon fiber materials themselves, and (2) the high processing costs of these materials. Although programs exist to red ...
