  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 ...

  3. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Every year, the global wind industry loses an estimated $100M or more to damage caused by lightning.A new blade coating will reduce the damage to wind turbine blades caused by lightning by promoting the formation of ionization channels over the surface of the turbine blades, providing a safe external path for lightning energy to reach ground and preventing damaging blade punctures.The coating cons ...

  4. Engineering Analysis and Design of CO2 Geothermal Power System to Provide Dispatable Geothermal Electricity Generation and Grid-Scale Energy Storage

    SBC: TerraCOH, Inc.            Topic: 11b

    In topic 11.b, Dispatchable Geothermal Operations, DOE seeks to enable more widespread deployment of geothermal as a dispatchable energy source.TerraCOH’s CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG™) and Earth Battery™ technologies are ideally suited to meet DOE’s needs.Conventional geothermal power technology has generally been limited to use as a baseload power source, but with increasing penetration of ...

  5. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Gamma-Heated In-Core Thermoacoustic Sensor

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: 30a

    We will develop an acoustically-telemetered, frequency-multiplexed, gamma-heated thermoacoustic sensors that can simultaneously monitor local gamma flux and coolant temperature at multiple locations in the core of an operating commercial nuclear reactor. These sensors will require no external power source and will telemeter temperature encoded as the frequency of the sound radiated by the sensor a ...

  8. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Lightning strikes and near-strikes on wind turbine blades cost wind farm operators millions of dollars every year, representing one of their largest O&M risks and expenses, as well as a primary cause of turbine downtime (resulting in lost power production). These negative effects increase the levelized cost of wind energy. With the incidence of lightning strikes increasing as turbines get larger, ...

  9. Developing BEM Applications for the Reinsurance Industry

    SBC: Prisere Llc            Topic: 09c

    Inefficient use of energy wastes capital that could be more productively invested in other segments of the U.S. economy. At the same time, the reinsurance industry is eager to reduce property losses arising from increasingly severe weather. But existing reinsurance loss models do not take into consideration the resiliency benefits of energy efficiency measures. The objective of the Phase I SBIR re ...

  10. 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 ...
