  1. Large-Area Visible and UV Metal-Oxide Avalanche Photodiodes for Cherenkov Detectors

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 34a

    For many decades photomultiplier tubes PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there is a need for ...

  4. Improved Reactor and Catalyst for Light Alkanes to Olefins and Liquid Fuels

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Natural gas is typically delivered from a gas well to an end-user via a pipeline system. When pipeline infrastructure is not available, the gas is either compressed or liquefied for storage and transport or flared. Often distribution of remote natural gas or use of it for power production cannot be economically justified. This type of gas reserve is typically considered as stranded natural gas and ...

  7. Capture of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Our approach for Direct Air Capture (DAC) builds on PCI’s success with flue gas capture which demonstrated 75% energy savings compared to operation with methylethanolamine (MEA)-based systems. In Phase I of the project we will optimize and modify our current nanomaterial composites to make them suitable for conditions typical of DAC – 400 ppmv CO2, variable humidity and temperature. Through a ...

  9. Advanced Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Components Enabled through Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Most of the current state of the art solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) stacks are assembled using planar cells, interconnects, gaskets, and insulators in a sequence that requires high level of precision and accuracy. For such conventional assembly approaches, the relatively high manufacturing cost is a key hurdle that prevents the widespread commercialization or adoption of SOFC systems. We are proposi ...

  10. Novel Process for CO2 capture from natural gas fueled SOFC generators

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 24c

    The United States has demonstrated a growing focus on renewable energy; however, fossil fueled energy sources still constitute over 80% of energy use in the United States. Fossil fuels will remain of driving importance in energy use, so identifying means to enhance clean and efficient power generating with fossil fuels remains a driving force. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems offer an opportun ...
