  2. Portable Analytical Instrumentation for Instantaneous Real-Time Measurement of Chemical Elements in Raw Petroleum and Refinery Products

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Chemical composition of feedstock petroleum affects the refining methods to produce fuels and other products.Intermediate and final refinery products as well as petrochemical products must be analyzed to meet regulations, required specifications and to provide certificates.Today petroleum refinery management requires analyzing the collected data hourly as opposite to monthly analysis used in the p ...

  3. Low Cost Alloys for Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12b

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

  4. Development of Production Strains of Chlamydomonas using Breeding Technologies

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    In order to make large scale commercial production of microalgae based commodity food and fuel products, significant strides in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory thus far have been the primary strategy taken to effectively ...

  5. Next Generation Intelligent Traffic Signals for the Multimodal, Shared, and Automated Future

    SBC: Xtelligent, Inc.            Topic: 13c

    The inefficient flow of vehicles on our roadways expend tremendous amounts of energy idling or reaccelerating their mass in stop-and-go traffic.This results in significant wasted energy, greenhouse gas emission, vehicle and roadway wear and tear, and economic inefficiency.According to the Centre for Economics and Business Research, the annual effect of traffic congestion in the U.S.includes 871 mi ...

  6. Cost-Competitive, Environmentally-Friendly Fixatives with Embedded Intelligence for Dust Management at Contaminated Sites

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 16a

    The Department of Energy is seeking an effective and versatile alternative to water for dust suppression at hazardous sites during demolition, construction, soil/sediment excavation and trucking.While water is abundant and cheap, frequent applications are required.Water is also ineffective to lock-down the loose surface contaminants in place.Consequently, wind and rain disperse hazardous contamina ...

  7. Real Time Non-Destructive Evaluation during 3D Manufacturing of Metal Parts

    SBC: LER TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 30g

    Additive manufacturing, such as laser sintering or melting of additive layers can produce parts rapidly at small volume and in a factory setting.To make the parts nuclear quality, a real-time non-destructive evaluation (NDE) technique is required to detect defects while they are being manufactured.The proposed NDE technique is a feasibility study of an optical sensor unit that is incorporated in a ...

  8. Metrology-Assisted Robotic Mirror Alignment for Parabolic Trough Collectors

    SBC: Sunvapor, Inc.            Topic: 12d

    High performance parabolic trough solar collectors are well-suited to generating industrial solar steam.Their thermal efficiency is greatly determined by the accuracy with which they are assembled.State-of-the-art designs require placement of dozens of mirror panels to sub-millimeter accuracy so that the focused reflected light hits its narrow target.That painstaking mirror placement is performed ...

  9. Cybersecurity Intrusion Detection System for Large-Scale Solar Field Networks

    SBC: Operant Networks, Incorporated            Topic: 12b

    Historically, large scale power generation assets have been protected from cyberattack through isolation: carefully managed proprietary communications networks and physical access control.However, it is extremely difficult and effort-intensive to maintain totally isolated Industrial Control Systems in this era of connected devices.As power generation assets shift from a few large centralized power ...

  10. Improved Instrument for Analysis of Nuclear Materials with Heterogeneous Isotopic Composition

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: 02c

    One of the gravest threats the United States and international community face is that terrorists or rogue nations acquire nuclear weapons or other weapons of mass destruction.Even worse is that some type of device is detonated.The ability to know if material is enriched or the identification of device debris relies significantly on chemical analysis; what is the elemental and isotopic content of a ...
