  1. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Novel Radium-Selective Separation Technique to Improve the Production of 225Ac for Cancer Immunotherapy

    SBC: RADTRAN LLC            Topic: 35b

    225Ac is valuable isotope for radioimmunotherapy treatment of cancers by means of targeted alpha therapy (TAT) However, the production capacity for it is currently insufficient to support the clinical- and commercial-scale demand for TAT drugs This proposal describes a process for facilitating production of 225Ac by providing source material in the form of the radium isotopes (primarily 228Ra) tha ...
