  1. A Novel Catalytic Reactor For Conversion Of CO2 Into Benzene

    SBC: Susteon Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Almost 15 million metric tons per year of essentially pure CO2 is captured in the United States from ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, and natural gas processing plants. Some of this CO2 is used for merchant applications such as food and beverage and other applications, but a large portion of this captured CO2 is emitted to the atmosphere. This CO2 can be converted into high value chemicals, but the key ...

  2. Additive-Manufactured Superconductor Phase Shifters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Statement of the problem: If high‐quality phase shifters can be made rapidly and inexpensively, it will enable substantial improvements in free electron lasers (FELs) performance and benefit the exploration of atomic and molecular science. X‐ray FELs now use permanent magnetic undulators to produce x‐ray light by wiggling high‐ energy bunches of electrons in alternating magnetic fields, wi ...

  3. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  4. Micron-scale Direct-detection X-ray Detectors

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 14a

    Techniques such as high‐energy x‐ray microscopy and Bragg coherent diffraction imaging are being developed. These techniques provide unique structural information at the micro‐ and nano‐scale for the discovery of novel materials. However, due to the limitations of suitable detectors, these techniques are severely limited when applied at high x‐ray energies (> 30 keV). In particular, thes ...

  5. TAU Analytica: Bringing Advanced Data Analytics to Performance Analysis

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 03b

    Powerful tools, including the TAU Performance SystemQR , exist to collect, visualize, and analyze performance data about HPC applications. However, usability issues with traditional HPC programming languages, li- braries, and frameworks are pushing users to newer, higher-level frameworks for specialized purposes, such as deep learning and data analytics. HPC systems, including leadership Departmen ...

  6. 3b Multi-modal small sensor package

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 03b

    Detecting and characterizing facilities and performing emergency location requires multi-modal, persistent surveillance by sensing and analysis. Infrasound and radio frequency direction finding (RF-DF) sensors have the proven ability to provide standoff detection. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of a small sensor package designed for small and medium unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) wi ...

  7. 20b Pup joint telemetry system

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 20b

    The proposed effort is a critical part of MVA programs for CO2 sequestration. The benefits include improved zonal isolation, higher data rates, and longer sensor battery life. Understanding reservoir stability and annulus cementing integrity will help determine new isolation criteria and verify existing operation. The new sequestration wells have applicability for greenhouse gas storage, environme ...

  8. Solar Modules: Low Cost Manufacturing

    SBC: Nextc Corporation            Topic: 12f

    Solar power is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy markets. Over the last twenty years, solar photovoltaics has gone from being a field of scientific study to one of commercial interest. Driving this change and solar adoption worldwide has been the decreasing cost per watt of solar power. While the drop in cost per watt has been largely driven by increasing panel efficiency, decreasing mat ...

  9. High Current Plasma Cathode for Accelerators

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 26d

    A rugged reliable cathode technology for application in superconducting radio frequency industrial linear accelerators will be developed. The non-thermionic cathode has no low work function surfaces and as a result is not sensitive to background gases or pressure. The high current cathode operates in pulsed mode over a wide frequency range. The simple construction of the cathode makes it easy to r ...

  10. Biomimicry-based MHK for remote communities

    SBC: BLADE RUNNER, LLC            Topic: 14a

    Microgrids are essential for developing, sustaining and growing Remote Communities which have been historically powered by diesel generation for reliability. Renewable energy sources, primarily sun and wind, have been gaining strength in offering local and economical alternatives of power to remote microgrid. Nonetheless, their intermittency brings reliability at high storage costs and as typicall ...
