  2. 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 ...

  4. Ultra Low Background Time Projection Alpha Particle Detector

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 29b

    The search for rare-events, such as double beta decay or dark matter detections, is primarily a fight to reduce the incidence of background events to sufficiently low levels so that the events of interest can be seen. Background sources include trace radioisotopes found within the materials used to construct, support, and shield these experiments, and any surface contamination caused by exposure t ...

  6. Wellbore Integrity Mapping using Well-Casing Electrodes and Surface Based Electrical Fields, Phase II

    SBC: Groundmetrics, Inc.            Topic: 13b

    This project will develop a new way to efficiently assess casings in oil and gas wells. Breached and corroded casings can leak contaminants into soil and water. The proposed system will give oil and gas production companies a quick and efficient way to identify potentially problem wells.

  7. Borehole-deployed electric field sources and sensors for permanent monitoring of CO2 sequestration in deep reservoirs, Phase IIB

    SBC: Groundmetrics, Inc.            Topic: 13b

    It is important to understand where CO2 goes when it is stored underground. This project will productize a novel method to detect and observe these changes over time. A low‐cost monitoring system could positively impact the economics of CO2 storage and reduce the risk to the public of potential leaks.

  8. 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.

  9. Robust S-Band thermionic RF gun with improved back-bombardment suppression (topic 4b)

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 04b

    Thermionic electron sources operating at microwave frequencies are current limited by electrons that reflect back from the radio frequency fields and heat the cathode. A novel cavity design is being investigated that will decrease the number of reflected electrons and improve the efficiency of the overall electron source.

  10. Fiber Optic Network Signal Integrity Analyzer

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 01b

    To advance the nation’s capabilities to continuously monitor the integrity of high-performance computing networks, high-quality optical signal test-support equipment is required. Low-cost, user-adjustable data rate optical signal test support equipment for long-distance, wide area and other fiber optic networks operating in electronically noisy environments is proposed.
