  1. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  2. Robust Microsenors for Automobile Exhaust Monitoring and Control

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 31b

    79252 As environmental regulations become increasingly stringent, there is mounting pressure on automobile manufacturers to substantially lower unburnt hydrocarbon emissions. This will require monitoring the hydrocarbon content in the exhaust with more accuracy than currently possible using the two oxygen sensor system. This requirement is especially important during start-up conditions, which a ...

  3. Biobattery / Biogenerator for In-Vivo Application

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: 51c

    A growing number of electronic devices are being implanted in patients to treat a wide range of maladies. While these devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex, they are powered by conventional chemical batteries with limited operating life and power output. These conventional batteries are essentially self-contained electrochemical reactors, and the total power they can produc ...

  4. Software Framework for Intergrative Archival and Maintenance of Large Scale Data

    SBC: CyberConnect EZ, LLC            Topic: 46

    The preservation of experimental data gathered by the nuclear physics community is being compromised by the dramatic increase in the rate of data generation. Physicists need to be able to easily archive the data, along with its experimental context and their current analysis procedures, in order to prepare for future breakthroughs in analysis technology and/or potential changes of the group perfo ...

  6. Development of a High Precision, Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70814B02-II Measurements of atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and CO from aircraft and from remote sites play a central role in observational strategies intended to quantify the sources and sinks of carbon and to control global warming from greenhouse gas emissions. Improved measurement techniques that are highly sensitive, automated, and robust are needed to quantify changes in the carbon conte ...

  7. Broadband Snapshot Complete Imaging Stokes Polarimeter

    SBC: I Technology Applications            Topic: 44a

    This project will develop a visible polarimeter for providing the broadband spatial and polarization information needed for defense nuclear nonproliferation applications. The proposed sensor uses a Savart plate snapshot imaging polarimeter with an achromatic Fourier transforming, AFT lens system. The AFT lens system is used as the polarimeter¿s rear optics in a unique configuration designed to ...

  8. A High Temperature (400 to 650oC) Secondary Storage Battery Based on Liquid Sodium and Potassium Anodes

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 15

    This project will develop technolgy for integrating a high-temperature (400 to 700ºC), high-efficiency (greater than 90%) secondary battery with a 3 to 10 kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The battery will be based on an alkali-metal-ion-conducting, highly refractory, beta alumina solid electrolyte (BASE) and a non corrosive metal salt. The battery is expected not only to meet or exceed w ...

  9. Development of a Hydrogen Home Fueling System

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 22b

    In the transition from current gasoline-based vehicles, hydrogen home fueling systems will play an important role in the market adoption of hydrogen-based vehicles. This project will investigate the development of such a system for the tri-generation of hydrogen, electricity, and heat. The tri-generation system will utilize solid oxide fuel-assisted electrolysis cells and solid oxide fuel cells ...

  10. NamesforLife Semantic Resolution Services for the Life Sciences (N4L-SRS)

    SBC: NamesforLife, LLC            Topic: 48d

    Within the Genomes-to-Life Roadmap, there is a lack of standardized semantics to accurately describe data objects and persistently express knowledge change over time. As research methods and biological concepts evolve, certainty about the correct interpretation of prior data and published results decreases, because both become overloaded with synonymous and polysemous terms. NamesforLife (N4L) i ...
