  1. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...

  3. Spouted Bed Reactor Designs for Thermal Desorption of Mercury Compounds

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    Thermal desorption systems are being utilized to remove toxic mercury compounds from coal. However, high moisture level, poor mixing, and unsuitable heating rate reduce the efficiency of thermal desorption units. Spouted bed reactor, which have been used in various physical operations such as drying, presents a possible solution in reducing moisture level and increasing particles mixing. The propo ...

  4. Layer-by-layer Deposition of Ultra-thin Hybrid/ microporous Membrane for CO2 Separation

    SBC: Angstrom Thin FIlm Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    CO2 separation and capture is a global topic that is closely related to energy and environment. Separation via membrane techniques is energy-efficient compared to other separation techniques. Among various membranes, porous membranes usually have good performance in gas flux but poor performance in selectivity. The flux of a porous membrane is dependent on the membrane thickness; the selectivity o ...

  5. Subtopic Letter (d) Combustion Modeling for Direct Fired Supercritical CO2 Power Cycles


    The SCO2 Brayton cycle is gaining interest across a variety of power generation applications due to its potential for providing higher efficiencies. The range of industrial applications include: industrial waste and heat recovery, coal and nuclear power plants, and renewable energy sources such as solar thermal and fuel cells. Direct fired SCO2 cycle loops require combustors that operate beyond th ...

  6. Enhanced Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Ethane with Facilitated Transport Membranes for Low Cost Production of Ethylene

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Ethylene demand is expected to increase by 50% domestically and worldwide over the next 5 years. Much of this and future growth is likely to be met from shale gas based ethane. Dr. Anne Gaffney of the US-DOE has invented a mixed metal oxide catalyst, M1, for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (C2- ODH) to ethylene at high conversions and very high selectivities. A major hurdle for commercial ...

  7. Flux Monitoring on an X-Ray Refractive Diamond Lens

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 05d

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the source’s phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high brightness light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion ...

  8. Method for the Production of Diamond-hardfaced Titanium Carbide/titanium Bits for Geothermal Drilling

    SBC: DIAMOND MATERIALS INC            Topic: 16a

    Drilling is equally important for survey purposes, for oil and natural gas exploration, and in searches for water in arid areas. Drill bits with extended service lives are needed to improve the economics of today’s drilling systems, particularly in high temperature, high pressure and erosive gases environments encountered in deep wells close to sources of hot magma. We will develop diamond-hard ...

  9. Non-Invasive Spin Polarization Monitoring

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 25e

    High quality spin polarization is an expectation for many users of Nuclear physics facilities. Accelerator operators and designers currently do not have real time, non-invasive polarization monitors, and no direct way to automate polarization quality optimization. The Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory (JLAB), Cornell’s Laboratory of Elementary-Particle Physics (LEPP) and, Electrodynamic, have ...

  10. Microwave-Fluidized Catalytic Reactor for the Direct Conversion of Methane to Higher Hydrocarbons

    SBC: H Quest Vanguard Inc            Topic: 17a

    Over the past decade, the growth of unconventional oil and gas has resulted in discovery and availability of vast quantities of natural gas across the United States. In many regions, lack or deficit of adequate infrastructure results in gas being stranded, or, in case of oil-associated gas, wastefully vented or flared, needlessly contributing to GHG emissions and global warming. Although manufactu ...
