  3. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  8. Adaptive Mapping of the Gulf Dead Zone with AutonomousSurface Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV), LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Gliders alone are incapable of monitoring the shallower regions of the hypoxic zone under conditions when the density gradient is strong, therefore surface vehicles are required to autonomously collect a suite of oceanographic observations from surface waters and profile this portion of the hypoxic zone. Autonomous Surface Vehicles, LLC (ASV, LLC) is partnering with Integral Co ...

  9. Stable, Towed, Volumetric Hydrophone Array

    SBC: Proteus Technologies, LLC            Topic: 821F

    Detecting the presence of marine mammals is paramount in lessening man’s impact on the environment as we search the oceans for natural resources. Most human operations in oceans use high powered acoustic sources that can disturb, disrupt, main or kill marine mammals. The ability to detect, identify and locate marine mammals is critical during these operations to mitigate harm. Passive acoustics ...

  10. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...
