  3. Non-Equilibrium Short-Pulsed Discharge for Removal of Antibiotics and Pathogens from Water used in Aquacultural Facilities

    SBC: AA Plasma LLC            Topic: 9101

    "Seafood consumption in the United States has risen to over 50% per capita over the last 25 years with over 75% of total U.S. seafood consumption coming from import. These trends, if continued, place a high importance on the safety aspect of seafood trade. Despite the lack of evidence supporting higher risk in imported food, many of the U.S. seafood import sources are located in tropical areas whe ...

  4. Advancing Flood Extent Delineation Modeling Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: 9503

    The proposed research will advance flood inundation mapping and enhance situational awareness in disaster response situations through a combination of machine learning techniques and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. One of the most difficult challenges during the early stages of a flood event is acquiring timely, unobstructed Earth observation data that can provide lifesaving insight into the ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Enhancing Subseasonal and Seasonal (S2S) Forecasts

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 9301

    Computer forecasts of weather and climate variability created by the U.S. and other nations on the subseasonal scale (weeks) and on the seasonal scale (months) are increasingly used by private and public activities to mitigate risk and seize opportunity. These forecasts are produced as ensembles of tens of individual computer forecasts and are most useful when calibrated by comparing histories of ...

  9. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challenge facing pipeline operators is that many pipelines are old, making their structural integrity uncertain, and that material pedigree of the pipeline steel is unknown. Therefor ...

  10. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels 3/16/2018 Ultrasound-based technology to nondestructively determine fracture toughness of pipeline steels will be developed. Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challeng ...
