  1. 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 with a scramble to increase supply via expansion or grass root facilities. US capacity will remain at about 20% of the world’s supply and exceed 100 BPPY. To meet this challenge, US-DOE has invented a mixed metal oxide catalyst, M1 for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (C2-ODH) to ethylene at hi ...

  2. 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. For high brightness 3rd and 4th generation light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion in the front-end optics caused by the high heat loads generated by the broadband radiation from the insertion device. Diamond offers a solution because of its low x-ray absorption a ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Vacuum Glass for R10 Windows

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 10a

    The one remaining barrier to achieving a marketable R-10 window is the high manufacturing cost of solderglass-sealed vacuum glass. To remedy this, edge seal material must be changed from meltable solderglass to cold-weldable aluminum foil, speeding up the manufacturing rate by over 700X. Phase I research showed that rod-shaped pane spacers, or whiskers, are the best shape available. They can enabl ...

  5. Floor Sensors for Occupancy Counting in Commercial Buildings

    SBC: Scanalytics Inc            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    The SENSOR FOA clearly identifies a need for people counting in commercial spaces to efficiently allocate HVAC energy, potentially saving 30% in annual energy costs. Scanalytics proposes a materially different, categorically superior floor sensing technology coupled with a device-agnostic platform and real-time processing algorithms to accurately measure occupancy within a space a space such as a ...
