  1. Novel Process for Biomass Conversion to 5 Carbon Alcohols

    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- ...

  4. Leveraging the Uintah Computational Framework for Commercial Simulation of Industrial Flares

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 17b

    Advanced modeling and simulation software, such as the Uintah Computational Framework (Uintah), has been developed in the US, through significant funding by the Department of Energy Office of Advanced Scientific Computing, but has been underutilized by US industry. We will leverage Uintah for commercial simulation of industrial flares on publicly available HPC facilities, and we will further devel ...

  5. Novel Thermal Barrier Coatings for Gasoline Spark Ignition Engines

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Currently spark ignition (SI) engines dominate the light vehicle market, with over 80 million light vehicle engines made worldwide. These SI engines experience exceptionally poor efficiency at low to medium loads and speeds, making it difficult to meet new fuel efficiency standards expected to be imposed in many countries. Low wall temperatures at the end of the combustion process leads to emissio ...

  6. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    State of the art yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) based thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are typically limited to maximum use temperatures of 1200-1300C. A thermal barrier coating (TBC) with a 1500C temperature capability would be a major gas turbine materials breakthrough. New coatings with a 200C temperature advantage can be used by the gas turbine industry to significantly increase turbine effi ...

  7. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    The US Department of Energy has a stated goal to increase the energy efficiency of turbines, and one well recognized method of achieving this is through the use of ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). However, state of the art zirconia-based TBCs have a temperature limit of about 1200oC, and new TBC materials that can operate at elevated temperatures of 1300oC and above are needed to continue ...

  8. Low-Noble-Metal-COntent Catalysts/Electrodes for Hydrogen Production by Water Electrolysis

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: 09g

    The economical use of hydrogen as a transportation and stationary power fuel remains a long-term DOE objective. Energy storage applications in Europe such as wind capture and improved biogas conversion efficiency are also driving significant interest in hydrogen production from renewable sources. New and efficient catalytic processes for hydrogen generation are therefore needed to achieve produc ...
