  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. Gallium Nitride (GaN) based 28 VDC Circuit Protection and Distribution

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: A16087

    Recent advances in commercially available Gallium Nitride (GaN) MOSFETS offer significant advantages compared to traditional Silicon devices for circuit protection and power distribution applications including the availability of devices in advanced packaging options, lower on-state resistances, and improved performance in harsh electromagnetic environments.To demonstrate these advantages of GaN i ...

  4. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    Modern computer systems often incorporate multiple computational devices such as conventional processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized accelerators, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Programmers are able to exploit these new architectures for improved performance and reduced power consumption, but at the cost of increased programing complexity. Further complicating matte ...

  5. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    Plasmonic metamaterials, composed of patterned metallic and dielectrics, can be engineered to have interesting optical properties that are attractive for a range of advanced obscurant applications. These particles are typically fabricated on planar surfaces, since patterning planar surfaces to achieve the desired effects is relatively straightforward.However, for planar geometries the particles op ...

  6. Novel Membrane Systems for Olefin/Paraffin Separation Phase IIB

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 18a

    Ethylene and propylene are major chemical industry raw materials and consume a great deal of energy related to their production. It is estimated that 250 trillion BTU/yr are consumed in olefin/paraffin separations. In 2011 worldwide ethylene and propylene production was about 140 and 70 million tons respectively. Historically, membrane processes for separating olefins and paraffins have been demon ...

  7. Advanced Hybrid WaterHeater using ECC

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 03c

    The problem being addressed in this proposal is the current extensive use of energy hungry hot water heaters in both residential and commercial building in the United States. To date, attempts to create a low energy hybrid hot water heater (HWH) have resulted in hot water heaters that have high differential prices and significant noise and maintenance issues resulting in low sales and low value pe ...
