  1. STTR Phase I: Engineering Alternative Oxidation Activity in A. ferrooxidans For Enhanced Biohydrometallurgy Capabilities

    SBC: Ironic Chemicals LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be to develop engineered bacteria with the ability to oxidize the copper mineral chalcopyrite and gold. The majority of copper reserves are in chalcopyrite, which currently requires smelting. The US copper mining industry, due to regulatory restrictions, has a limited smelting capacity forcing US ...

  2. Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Module to Upgrade Existing Commercial Electron Microscopes

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    This project will develop a flexible longitudinal electron optical system based on high-precision radio-frequency cavities for short and intense electron bunch compressions, both in the energy and time domains. The proposed system is designed to be insertable into an existing transmission electron microscope column to upgrade its temporal resolution. Active phase-space control enables broad ranges ...

  3. Novel Sulfonated Block Copolymers for Efficient Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression

    SBC: Sustainable Innovations, LLC            Topic: 17d

    According to a report by the Hydrogen Council, a global lobby set up in January 2017 by Toyota and Air Liquide that includes 27 members such as automakers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Honda and Hyundai, and energy firms Shell and Total, increasing the use of hydrogen in power, transport, heat and industry could deliver around one fifth of the total carbon emissions cuts needed to limit global warming to sa ...

  4. Innovative additive manufacturing (AM) process for successful production of 7000 series aluminum alloy components using Smart Optical Monitoring Syste

    SBC: Sensigma Llc            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes falls short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and other m ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Protecting Livestock from Airborne Disease Transmission Using Non-thermal Plasma Airstream Disinfection

    SBC: Taza Aya LLC            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this STTR project stems from the costs to U.S. food producers of outbreaks of animal diseases. Producers of poultry, pork, and other food proteins lose more than $1B each year to infectious diseases, including some that are transmitted through the air. For diseases having an airborne transmission route, protective technologies that are available are few a ...

  6. 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 ...
