  1. Enhanced Distillation via Membranes for Elimination of Trapped Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 21

    Distillation is a major chemical unit operation and consumer of significant energy. Often, water or another intermediate boiling component can become trapped within the distillation column and accumulate. This causes various operating difficulties such as flooding, slugging, cycling, instability, and an off-spec product. This project will develop a chemically resistant, non-porous water-venting ...

  2. Novel Platform for Enhanced Membrane Reactors for Homogeneous Catalysis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 23

    Catalysis plays a substantial role in the synthesis of the most U.S. commodity chemicals, with huge implications for energy usage. Membrane reactors have been proposed for a number of these syntheses. However, to be competitive with conventional technologies, membrane reactors must demonstrate better selectivity, permeability, and/or stability. This project will develop a novel platform with ke ...

  3. Drying Pipeline Fuel Grade Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 33

    The use of ethanol as a fuel would impact U.S. reliance on foreign oil. However, among the economic obstacles to it widespread use are the costs of shipping fuel-grade ethanol by truck. Shipping ethanol by pipeline would be significantly less expensive, but, unfortunately, pipeline ethanol is hydroscopic, which causes too much water to be present in the fuel. This project will develop a simple, ...

  4. Novel Microbial Hydrogen Production from Biomass Containing Waste Water

    SBC: Ion Power, Inc.            Topic: 12

    The treatment of waste water consumes a significant amount of energy, in order to reduce the organic matter to levels safe for environmental discharge. This project will develop a novel microbial-based approach to convert the organic matter in waste water into a valuable commodity, namely hydrogen. This approach would simultaneously clean the waste water and produce a fuel that can be sold to he ...

  5. Robust, High Speed, Direct-Electron Microscopy Detector Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 25

    New detectors with improved resolution, speed, and sensitivity will increase the efficacy of electron beam microcharacterization, thereby stimulating innovations in life and materials sciences. Current instruments based on charge couple devices (CCDs) are readout-speed limited and are phosphor-limited in resolution and efficiency. Therefore, a new electron detector technology ¿ which offers ...

  6. High Count Rate, Pixelated APDs for Direct X-Ray Detection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 25

    Synchrotron radiation is used at DOE user facilities for materials science studies.  However, with advances in the brightness of synchrotron radiation sources, a wide gap has developed between the ability of these sources to deliver high photon fluxes and the ability of detectors to measure the resulting photon, electron, or ion signals. This project will use engineered SOI CMOS (silicon-on-in ...

  7. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    High quantum efficiency (QE), fast (

  8. Improved Vertex Focal Plane Arrays for Linear Colliders

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 41

    The physics of future Linear Colliders (LCs) demand the best possible vertex detector performance, including high-granularity, high-precision, high-efficiency, triggerless operation, and thin cross sections. These requirements generally rule out the use of conventional CCD (charge coupled device) detectors and hybrid complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) imagers, which have been used in ...
