  1. Portable Nanowire Platform for Quasi Real-Time and Ultrasensitive Detection of Microbes

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 19a

    In situ detection of microbial activity in submerged soils and aquatic sediments can be labor intensive and technically difficult, especially in dynamic environments where data on microbial status is desired. Current approaches for estimating anaerobic microbial activity involve incubating soil/sediment samples. Sophisticated analytical techniques are currently used which are not convenient and so ...

  2. High temporal and spatial resolution measurement of hydrometeor mass for automated assessment of precipitation rate and type

    SBC: Particle Flux Analytics Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program is engaged in long-term measurements at Barrow and Oliktok Pt. Alaska of precipitation climatologies and physical processes. The Particle Flux Analytics Inc. (PFA) Multi Angle Snowflake Camera (MASC) has been operating at Oliktok Point since 2015 providing the ARM community with unprecedented information about hydrometeor structure, size, and falls ...

  3. Ease of use and deployment for a fast, scalable data movement infrastructure

    SBC: VISUS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    In recent decades, High Performance Computing (HPC) has risen as one of the key enablers of innovation in science and engineering. However, industrial adoption has been impeded by the complexity and cost of deploying applications. Problems include the quality, speed, and flexibility of software tools and the specialized expertise required to adapt solutions given the profusion of hardware config ...

  4. Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral Interactions

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...

  5. Microbial co-cultures for production of methyl ketones from lignocellulose

    SBC: ECOVIA RENEWABLES INC.            Topic: 20g

    Production of liquid transportation fuels from abundant and renewable lignocellulosic biomass represents a promising and sustainable alternative to present petroleum feedstock platforms. However, despite several decades of substantial efforts, commercialization of cellulosic biofuels has been limited and faces critical challenges, which include increased fossil fuel supply from hydraulic ...

  6. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  8. LOW COST CAMPANILE NEAR FIELD PROBE USING NANOIMPRINT LITHOGRAPHY

    SBC: ABEAM TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 17c

    The near-field Campanile probe offer an unique solution to explore the behavior of matter at the nanometer scale by simultaneously imaging the physicochemical properties and the local morphology of materials. However, the fabrication of these revolutionary tips is complex and expensive with poor reproducibility, all of which prohibits any commercialization. Statement of How this Problem or Situati ...

  9. Novel Process for Biomass Conversion to Methyl Butanols

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 18e

    As the world population increases and global GDP rises, the demand for energy is projected to increase dramatically. Fossil fuels are currently a leading energy source, approximately 50% of which is imported from foreign sources. A domestically produced, renewable energy source is needed to ensure the energy security of the United States. One source of domestic potential energy currently under- ...

  10. Advanced Biomass Tree Crop Technology

    SBC: KOPESS Biomass Solutions LLC            Topic: 20u

    International demand for wood has grown steadily in the past few decades due to the growth in the world’s population and is expected to continue to grow rapidly as policies promoting greater use of renewable energy are adopted globally. Providing over 9% of the global primary energy supply, wood energy is as important as other renewable energy sources. Due to wood’s potential for large-scale c ...
