  1. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  2. Hydrothermal Catalysis Flow Process to Convert Brown Grease into Green Gasoline, Green Jet and Green Diesel Fuels

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    The primary challenges for creating renewable fuels are the ability to process inexpensive non-food feedstocks into biofuels that meet all quality specification, perform indistinguishably from petroleum-based fuels and are compatible with current infrastructure.Our Phase I project demonstrated the feasibility of producing biofuels from waste greases using a novel hydrothermal, continuous-flow cata ...

  4. Monolithic integration of high-efficiency UV photocathodes on large-area microchannel plates for high spatial and temporal resolution particle detection

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 30a

    Reliable, high-sensitivity and high-resolution photon detectors, which can alleviate major limitations imposed by photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), for future high energy physics (HEP) and nuclear physics (NP) experiments, are of great interest to DOE- Other fields that could greatly benefit from these detectors include Cherenkov telescopes in astrophysics, positron emission tomography (PET) in medica ...

  5. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...

  6. CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG) and the Earth Battery-- Innovative Geothermal Power Production Using Non-water Working Fluids

    SBC: TerraCOH, Inc.            Topic: 11b

    In topic 11.b, Dispatchable Geothermal Operations, the Department of Energy (DOE) seeks to enable more widespread deployment of geothermal as a dispatchable energy source, permitting expansion of geothermal power in general and as a compliment to growing intermittent energy sources. TerraCOH’s CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG™) and Earth Battery™ technologies are ideally suited to meet and exceed t ...

  7. Solar Guard

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: 12b

    The SolarGuard project will address the problem of detecting malicious data injection (MDI) attacks on power transmission systems handling solar power. Such attacks could cause the power transmission system to become unstable, leading to blackouts and cascade failures. MDI can also be used to perfom, high-level application attacks disrupting applications in Energy Control Centers, from Energy Mana ...

  8. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  9. A Numerical Tool for the Design of Enhanced Geothermal Reservoirs based on Modeling of Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical Processes and Explicit Representation of 3D Discrete Fracture Networks

    SBC: Itasca Consulting Group, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    This project will develop an efficient and unique numerical modeling tool for engineering an Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS) that incorporates both the capability of modeling thermo-hydro-mechanical processes and explicitly representing realistic discrete fracture networks with thousands of fractures. Through transformative science and technology solutions and by improving predictive analysis, de ...

  10. Large-area, low-voltage, GaN-based avalanche photodiode arrays for application in harsh environments.

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 28a

    For several 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, expensive, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there ...
