  1. Flexible Low Temperature CO2 Capture System, E-CACHYS

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 1

    This project focuses on the design, integration and optimization of a flexible natural gas combined cycle plant with carbon capture, capable of operating in a highly variable renewable energy environment. Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power offer unique solutions in our quest to reduce global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. However, the increasing penetration of these high variab ...

  2. Hybrid Gas Coal Combustion System with Energy Storage

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 25a

    The significant growth of renewable energy has resulted in significant challenges for existing power generation facilities coping with the variable nature of said renewables. The variability strains grid management resources and has led to an increased requirement for off-design operation of power generation sources as intermittent or cyclic. This results in increased maintenance costs and loss of ...

  3. Graded Surface Modification Of Alloys For Containment Of Chloride Molten Salts.

    SBC: HELICON CORP            Topic: 11b

    Investigators at the University of Arizona (UofA), and its development partners, Hewlett Packard Inc. (HP) and Helicon Corp., propose to arrest corrosion of high-temperature metal alloys used in molten chloride salts at 800C by a new process for modifying the alloy surfaces. The new process uses the additive manufacturing capabilities compatible with HP 3D Metal in layered compositions combined wi ...

  4. Enabling Technology- Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Energy Demands in the Meat Production Industry via Scaling Advanced 3D Culture Bioreactors

    SBC: cambridge crops, Inc.            Topic: G

    Food production, and in particular animal-derived meat products, are a major source of green-house gases, compounded by the remarkable inefficiency in biomass conversion (grain to dense muscle tissue in meat), along with growing challenges with food safety, quality and nutrition. To address this growing problem, we propose to exploit the emerging field of cellular agriculture (tissue engineering o ...

  5. 32a Fiber Pumped Ho:Sesquioxide Ceramic Materials for Short Pulse Thin disk Lasers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 32a

    Intense short pulse lasers are playing increasingly important role in high-energy physics research. Laser based electron accelerators are innovative tools to obtain GeV to TeV electron energies for high-energy particle physics experiments. The development of such lasers puts stringent challenges on the very limits of the laser materials themselves. The goal of this project is to develop Ho:sesquio ...

  6. 40-T Superconducting Solenoid for Particle Physics Experiments

    SBC: Novum Industria LLC            Topic: 33b

    In this Phase I STTR program, we propose to develop a conceptual design of a 40-T, ϕ2-cm-warm- bore superconducting solenoid magnet for use in high energy particle physics experiments, e.g., muon ionization cooling, by combining a Low Temperature Superconducting background magnet and a High Temperature Superconducting insert magnet. High Temperature Superconductors must be employed for very-high- ...

  7. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  8. Protonic Ceramic Membranes with Unprecedented Electrochemical Efficiency

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    Wind and solar electricity are gaining traction in the marketplace, but the electricity available from these sources is out of synch with demand Protonic ceramic electrochemical cells (PCECs) operating at intermediate temperatures (400 - 650°C) have enormous potential for electricity storage and delivery by reversible operation between electrolysis and fuel cell modes and therefore stand to addre ...

  10. Low Power Terahertz Optoelectronic Switch

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 16a

    In spite of the promise of terahertz frequency range, the maturity of terahertz technologies, such as sources or detectors, remains relatively weak In particular, ultrafast optoelectronic switches are a key component to both sources and detectors, but current versions of them require too much power to be commercially viable, particularly for applications involving detector arrays The overall objec ...
