  1. A Novel Catalytic Reactor For Conversion Of CO2 Into Benzene

    SBC: Susteon Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Almost 15 million metric tons per year of essentially pure CO2 is captured in the United States from ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, and natural gas processing plants. Some of this CO2 is used for merchant applications such as food and beverage and other applications, but a large portion of this captured CO2 is emitted to the atmosphere. This CO2 can be converted into high value chemicals, but the key ...

  2. Low-temperature chemical looping reforming catalysts for small-footprint GTL

    SBC: Catalytic and Redox Solutions, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Methane from U.S. shale deposits has significantly increased the usable amount of this domestic energy resource. Meanwhile, flaring of natural gas, which is commonly practiced in shale-oil production, exceeded 6 billion cubic meters in the United State annually. This leads to a waste of valuable energy resources and significant emissions of greenhouse gas. As such, small-footprint technologies tha ...

  3. No Stress PFC Bonding Technology

    SBC: SEALED OPTICS COMPANY            Topic: 23a

    Electric power generation regularly necessitates the conversion of heat into useful work. Except for some renewable forms, all energy production involves high-temperature. In cases such as fusion, fission, gas-turbine, and fuel cells, the operating temperatures can be very high. Working parts exposed to these environments are thermally stressed. The material joints found in multi-component parts m ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Metamaterial Void Sensor for Fast Transient Testing

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 30a

    After the Daiichi nuclear disaster, the US Congress placed emphasis on accident tolerant fuels for reactors.During accident events, voids in cooling fluid can cause cladding weakening, and it is important to measure these effects in a controlled test.The project develops a fast void detector that can detect and localize voids, with a quantifiable detection limit superior to a capacitive void senso ...

  7. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  8. 3b Multi-modal small sensor package

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 03b

    Detecting and characterizing facilities and performing emergency location requires multi-modal, persistent surveillance by sensing and analysis. Infrasound and radio frequency direction finding (RF-DF) sensors have the proven ability to provide standoff detection. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of a small sensor package designed for small and medium unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) wi ...

  9. 20b Pup joint telemetry system

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 20b

    The proposed effort is a critical part of MVA programs for CO2 sequestration. The benefits include improved zonal isolation, higher data rates, and longer sensor battery life. Understanding reservoir stability and annulus cementing integrity will help determine new isolation criteria and verify existing operation. The new sequestration wells have applicability for greenhouse gas storage, environme ...

  10. High Current Plasma Cathode for Accelerators

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 26d

    A rugged reliable cathode technology for application in superconducting radio frequency industrial linear accelerators will be developed. The non-thermionic cathode has no low work function surfaces and as a result is not sensitive to background gases or pressure. The high current cathode operates in pulsed mode over a wide frequency range. The simple construction of the cathode makes it easy to r ...
