  1. Insulation and Heat Treatment of Bi-2212 Wires for Wind-and-React Coils

    SBC: Advanced Magnetic and Cryogenic, LLC            Topic: 40

    Higher Field Magnets, used in high energy physics (HEP) research, demand higher field materials such as Bi2212 round superconducting wire. The Bi2212 wire-manufacturing process depends on the coil-fabrication method and wire-insulation material. For example, the wind-and-react method requires the coil to be uniformly heated to the melt temperature and uniformly cooled to the solidification tempe ...

  2. A Low-Energy Low-Cost Process for Stripping Carbon Dioxide from Absorbents

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: 13

    If CO2 could be scrubbed from the flue gas of power plants and safely sequestered, the country¿s most important source of electricity, fossil-fired power plants, could operate without emitting significant amounts of greenhouse gases. Although technology for scrubbing CO2 from the flue gas of a power plant is commercially available, it is far too expensive and requires too much energy to be widel ...

  3. Solar Desalination Technology for Mid-Sized Applications

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: 30

    Secure sources of clean fresh water are essential to the welfare of communities throughout the world. To meet the growing demand for fresh water, communities are increasingly relying on large-scale desalination plants. Unfortunately, the source of energy to run these plants has almost always been fossil fuels. This project will develop a desalination technology that runs primarily on solar ener ...

  4. Innovative Technology for Virtual Leased-Line Services for High-Speech Networks

    SBC: Computational Consulting            Topic: 44

    High-performance optical networks play a pivotal role within the DOE complex by enabling high-bandwidth communication and collaboration over long distances. The problem, however, is that optical networks do not have the same buffering capacity as electrical networks, and, thus, they require new techniques and protocols to share optical links. Many current techniques result in poor network utiliz ...

  5. Technical Proposal: A Single Well Test for Green House Gas Sequestration/Enhanced Methane Recovery Design Parameters

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: 18

    There is a need to accelerate the technology for sequestering green house gas (GHG) emmissions from coal-fired electrical-generating plants, thereby reducing global warming. One sequestration option involves the injection of GHG into coalbeds. A straightforward inexpensive method is needed to predict the amount of CO2, NO2, and SO2 (all GHG components) that can be sequestered in unmineable coalb ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Interactive Physics Data Analysis Using Streaming Grid Technology

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 42

    High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments face major challenges in building interactive analysis environments for the unprecedented volume of data that will be gathered in the next generation of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other accelerators. The current generation of HEP Grid infrastructures is largely aimed at the initial event reconstruction and analysis phases and may not b ...

  8. Gas Phase Catalytic Oxidation of Cyclohexane to Cyclohexanone and Cyclohexanol

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 30

    In the U.S., the annual production of 4.6 billion pounds of nylon starts with the liquid-phase oxidation of 3.5 billion pounds of cyclohexane to KA-oil (a mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol) and the subsequent oxidation of the latter to adipic acid with HNO3. The liquid-phase cyclohexane process, which operates at only 4-10% cyclohexane conversion, is the ¿least efficient¿ industrial pro ...

  9. New Energy Efficient Route to Styrene

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 21

    Styrene is an important monomer used in a variety of plastic products. In terms of monomer production, styrene ranks fourth in the U.S. behind ethylene, vinyl chloride, and propylene. However, styrene plants use dramatically more energy compared to the production of other petrochemicals. This project will develop a styrene monomer technology that uses alternative feedstocks (toluene and methanol ...

  10. Nano-Porous Catalyst for Refinery Alkylation

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 23

    The removal of MTBE (methyl tert-butyl ether) from many gasoline blends necessitates the increased use of other high-octane components. Alkylate represents a clean high-quality alternative; however, alkylate is produced using hazardous and increasingly expensive liquid acid catalysts. A safe, economical alternative to liquid acids is needed. Solid acid catalysts offer a safe and clean alternati ...
