  1. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  2. Low Cost Oxygen Enriched Air by Membrane Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Oxygen enriched air (OEA) can be a valuable tool to enhance combustion processes, reduce CO2 emissions per unit of heat generated and also concentrate CO2 to enhance subsequent CO2 concentration ahead of CO2 sequestering. OEA reduces the presence of parasitic nitrogen and therefore flame temperature and associated heat transfer is higher with OEA. Studies show that using 40-50% OEA, which is the p ...

  3. Integrated Energy Analysis and Validation Environment

    SBC: Energy Analytics LLC            Topic: 03c

    A great deal of progress has been made in delivery of highly mature building systems energy simulation tools. However, application of these highly sophisticated methods tends to remain limited to a relatively small population of high profile buildings. Elements that influence this limitation include the time required to formulate an appropriate building system model, the time required to execut ...

  4. Gamma-Ray Imaging Spectrometers for Nuclear Materials Accounting and Control

    SBC: H3D            Topic: 19c

    The nuclear security and safeguards community does not have an effective tool to track the location and quantities of radioactive material within facilities. This effort will result in a sensor that can provide precise locations and quantities of radioisotopes in complex measurement environments. It is in the national interest to develop the best possible tools to monitor all aspects of the domes ...

  5. Printed Electronic Film Construction for SSL

    SBC: Innotec, Corp.            Topic: 03a

    High material costs and high manufacturing costs have been identified as one of the critical barriers that are slowing the adoption of Solid State Lighting. A 2012 Department of Energy report estimated that Solid-State Lighting has the potential to reduce electric energy consumed by lighting from 694TWh in 2010 to 375TWh in 2030. Overcoming the materials and manufacturing cost barriers in order t ...

  6. Tailoring Cementitious Materials Towards Value-Added Use of Large CO2 Volumes

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 13c

    Carbon capture and storage is generally considered as a crucial component of any U.S. strategy for addressing the climate change problem. Carbon dioxide can be stored underground in geologic formations, or permanently bound into some abundant minerals via carbonation reactions. These options have been subject of significant research and development efforts. The proposed project employs the advance ...

  7. Development of Iron Phosphate Wasteforms for Fission Products Waste Streams

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: 19g

    Most liquid high-level nuclear waste is currently being immobilized to a solid form as a borosilicate glass by vitrification. However, many nuclear wastes have complex and diverse chemical compositions that reduce their compatibility with borosilicate glass. The current baseline spent nuclear fuel reprocess generates secondary waste streams that generally include large amounts of MoO3 and lanthani ...

  8. Flash Processed Steel for Automative Applications

    SBC: SFP WORKS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    In order to reduce Americans dependence on oil imports, the Department of Energy (DOE) has pursued multiple strategies for making vehicles more fuel efficient. Reducing vehicle weight is a promising approach and much effort has focused on developing technologies to replace steel. However, exotic materials are proving expensive and often require automotive manufacturers invest heavily in factory re ...

  10. Rapid Manufacturing of Titanium Components by Consolidating Powdered Titanium in a Near-Net-Shape Tool Through the Application of Pressure and Thermal Cycling using Smart Susceptors.

    SBC: Temper Inc            Topic: 07b

    The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for 2025 states that average new vehicle fuel economies to reach 60 miles per gallon for cars and 43 miles per gallon for trucks by 2025. In order to satisfy this problem, innovative processes are required that can produce a weight savings of 30% at a cost of less than $2.00 per pound of weight saved. The focus of this proposal is to generate a l ...
