  1. A Commercially Viable Carbon Molecular Sieve Membrane for Subquality Natural Gas

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70903 About 40% of the approximately 54 trillion standard cubic feet of gas reserves in the lower 48 states can not be economically extracted because it is considered subquality and/or from small or remote wells. Current generation membranes offer a potential solution but have not been implemented because of various technical and economical barriers. This project will develop a carbon molecu ...

  2. A Novel Process for Producing Low Cost Sn-Ti Core Rods for Internal Tin Nb3Sn

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65437 In closed waste-storage systems containing either easily oxidizable metals or radioactive materials, molecular hydrogen is produced. If these closed containers have hydrogen impermeable shells or cases, the build-up of hydrogen gas may form an explosive or flammable mixture with any contained air. It may also present a corrosion problem for certain reactive metal elements that tend to for ...

  3. A Superior Scintillator Material for High Resolution X-Ray Detectors

    SBC: NANOMAT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    70837 Materials that exhibit a light output comparable or greater than bismuth germanate, have fast decay times, exhibit high efficiencies and can be manufactured inexpensively and in large pieces are extremely desirable for use in high-resolution X-ray detectors, needed for nuclear physics research. However, presently-used materials have several drawbacks: low sensitivity to X-rays, lumi ...

  4. Accelerator-Based, Epithermal Neutron Source for BNCT

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70454 Intense beams of epithermal neutrons, at sites close to major medical centers, are needed to advance the development of the boron neutron capture modality of cancer therapy. Particle accelerators are the top candidates to meet this need. This project will develop a new rf-focused drift tube linear accelerator structure as an economical source for these neutron beams. The source ...

  5. Achieving a High Level of Scalability in Federated Information Retrieval

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 45

    At the present time, no federated search engine exists that is capable of searching, aggregating, and ranking more than a small fraction of the scientific content produced by the research community at large and by DOE researchers in particular. Although thousands of sources of valuable content exist, a solution has not been developed that ensures that scientific discoveries already made can be ea ...

  6. Adsorption-and Membrane-Enhanced Reactor for Fuel Reforming Applications

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 21

    Small-scale hydrogen production, for both mobile and stationary applications, is a technology critical to the future implementation of fuel cell technology. Existing fuel reforming processes are extremely complicated, as well as capital- and energy-intensive, primarily due to their high temperature (600 to >800ºC) requirements. These disadvantages handicap the scale-down of existing reforming p ...

  7. Advanced Materials for Thermal Management in III-Nitride LEDS

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: 24

    High-brigntess LEDs, used in general lighting applications today, are limited in luminous output by their ability to manage heat and light efficiency simultaneously. Advanced material systems are sought to improve the thermal conduction of heat from the LED to the environment. By demonstrating improved thermal management while maintaining good optical charactersitics, these advanced material syst ...

  8. Affinity Ceramic Membranes with Carbon Dioxide Transport Channel

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60924 The development of affinity membranes has the potential to offer a quantum leap in membrane-based separation technology. Current polymeric membrane researchers modify surface functionality to offer a specific affinity; however, in the area of inorganic membranes, few similar activities exist. This project will develop an affinity inorganic membrane that can demonstrate separations ba ...

  10. An Economic Process for Coal Liquefaction to Liquid Fuels

    SBC: Specialties Group, Inc.            Topic: 16

    Currently, direct-coal liquefaction processes produce limited yields of moderate-quality liquid products, which are not cost-effective compared to petroleum-based liquid fuels. This project will develop a novel catalytic process for the liquefaction of coal into liquid fuels. Phase I provided a proof-of-concept regarding the ability of the catalyst and the processing technology to produce high q ...
