  3. Biologically Inspired Ammonia Production with Immobilized Nitrogenase

    SBC: Fulcrum Bioscience, LLC            Topic: 08c

    Ammonia is a critical component of the US economy as US agricultural exports exceeded $100BB in 2015 and depend heavily on ammonia fertilizers. Ammonia production consumes 1% of the world’s total energy supply and millions of tons are imported each year. An innovative bioelectrocatalyzed process is being developed using immobilized mutated nitrogenase enzymes to directly convert atmospheric ni ...

  7. High Quantum Efficiency Uni-Traveling-Carrier Photodiode for Optical to Microwave Transduction

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: 29d

    Modern quantum information systems employ optical photons for long distance communication, operating at ambient temperature, between microwave cavities, which house microwave photons used in quantum computing and microwave detection. These optical photons, carried by fiber-optic or free-space links, offer a low-cost, uncooled alternative to bulky, expensive microwave coaxial cables, which are loss ...

  8. Development of a breeding system in Chlamydomonas moewusii for improved production strains

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    For economically viable large-scale production of microalgae based food and biofuel to become a reality, significant improvements in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory, have thus far been the primary strategy taken to effec ...

  10. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to Liquids

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 22c

    The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...
