  1. Thermoplastic Forming of Bulk Metallic Glass Nozzles for High-Pressure, Low-Temperature Hydrogen Fueling

    SBC: Supercool Metals LLC            Topic: 10b

    Strong environmental concerns related to an extensive use of fossil fuels lead to a more active development of vehicles that use an alternative fuel. Hydrogen is one such fuel that has the potential to be a cheaper, more efficient and a cleaner alternative to gasoline. With the predicted growth of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling stations, a reliable and cost-effective hardware for the hydr ...

  2. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to Methanol

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 20d

    The current cost of implementation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) is well above practical levels, more than tripling the cost of power generation, without carbon credit offsets. Therefore, for US coal plants to be able to implement CCS without significant negative economic impact, there is a critical need for new CCS technologies that can change this economic picture dramatically. One way to ...

  3. Low-Cost, Durable Organic Batteries for Dispatchable Solar Applications

    SBC: Jolt Energy Storage Technologies, LLC            Topic: 12c

    The declining cost of solar technology for electricity generation has led to a dramatic increase in its deployment. However, the intermittent nature of solar photovoltaic generation presents a significant challenge for grid operators, and it is widely recognized that co-located, inexpensive and reliable energy storage is required to promote the stability and operational flexibility of the grid. Id ...

  4. Feasibility Study on an Aluminum Brake Systems for OEM Applications

    SBC: LiteBrake Tech, LLC            Topic: 13e

    Public awareness of energy saving and environmental concerns raises the demand for better fuel efficiency and weight reduction of vehicles. Weight reduction must also be cost effective for consumers, meet or exceed current and planned safety requirements, meet consumer expectations for vehicle performance and durability. The current brake systems consisting of rotors and calipers made of cast iron ...

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Currently spark ignition (SI) engines dominate the light vehicle market, and over 80 million light vehicle engines are made worldwide. However, such SI engines experience exceptionally poor efficiency at low to medium loads and speeds, and this makes it difficult to meet new fuel efficiency standards expected to be imposed in many locations around the world. Furthermore, the insufficient wall temp ...

  6. Artificial Interphases Enable the Use of Silicon Anodes for High-Energy Vehicle Batteries

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    Si has been considered as a potential candidate to replace the current anode material, graphite (372 mAh/g, LiC6), because of its high capacity (3579 mAh/g, Li15Si4), low environmental impacts, and potentially low cost. However, the utilization of Si in LIBs has been hindered by two major issues: 1) Si particles experience huge volume expansion up to 300%, which causes mechanical disintegration of ...

  7. Routine Sample Reduction for Commercial Nuclear Power Topic 33e

    SBC: H3D, Inc.            Topic: 33e

    Radiological monitoring of nuclear power plants is a constant expense for commercial nuclear facilities. It is necessary to understand chemical processes within the plant, to minimize dose to works, and to minimize outage time, all of which have important economic impacts on nuclear power production. The current tools that are available for radiological monitoring are based on radiation detection ...

  9. Hybrid Model-based Approach for Remote Diagnostics and Prognostics for Wind Turbines.

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 15b

    Offshore wind turbines have the inherent drawbacks of being remotely located and subject to harsh weather conditions such as storms, snow and sleet, that subject them to operational stresses. With the growing demand for wind energy in the US, it is imperative to maximize the operational efficiencies of the wind turbines and minimize the Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE). Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI) ...

  10. Novel Modular GTL Reactor

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Petroleum crude costs 6-8 times more than natural gas on an energy content basis. Moreover, approximately 97% NG is produced from domestic sources. Flaring of gas from small fields onshore and offshore has been practiced due to lack of cost effective solutions to monetize such gas. This presents numerous opportunities for producing value-added materials from natural gas at smaller distributed scal ...
