  1. A Climate Impact Assessment Service for Urban and Regional Planning

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Throughout the world, there is a critical need for readily accessible modeling tools that can transform climate change research into useful intelligence that is relevant to local decision-makers. These individuals need more than the standard visualizations of global-scale temperature and precipitation changes that are currently available on informational websites; they need that data translated in ...

  3. AN INDUSTRIAL MEMBRANE SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR DISTRIBUTED USED OIL RE-REFINING

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 09c

    Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. Presently, about 9% of the collected used oil is re-refined at six facilities in US. The majority of thi ...

  4. An Innovative VOCs Incinerator

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    An innovative, non-catalytic high destruction efficiency, and low fuel consumption VOC incinerator is proposed to reduce VOCs from condensate tanks and other low heat value waste gas streams. The proposed technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. The proposed technology can completely eliminate undesirable VOC emissions. It uses effective heat recirculation from the hot ...

  5. Enhanced Dropwise Condensation for Improved Dry Cooling Efficiency

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    With the increase of energy consumption and water stress, power plant cooling, which accounts for 40% of fresh water withdrawal, has been received more and more attention. Dry cooling technology is currently the most feasible solution to reduce this water consumption. However, the cost of the dry cooling system can be more than 5 times of the typical wet cooling system. Increase the dry cooling ef ...

  6. Novel Membrane Systems for Olefin/Paraffin Separation

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

    Ethylene and propylene are the primary feedstocks for the manufacture of polyethylene and polypropylene, respectively. These olefins represent a major component of the polymer manufacturing cost. Consequently, there is significant economic benefit in minimizing losses of unreacted olefin from the process. Some olefin loss is a result of the need to remove paraffin from the polymerization reactor ...

  7. Thin Diamond Time-of-Flight Detectors

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 35b

    Rare isotope facilities serve a critical need for a rapidly expanding area of nuclear physics research. Existing rare isotope facilities already provide enough intensity that conventional detector systems have trouble with counting rates while future rare isotope facilities, like the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), will provide particle beams with unprecedented intensities and rates. Cle ...

  9. Durable High Temperature Coatings For Utility Scale Gas Turbine Hot Gas Path Components

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    For advanced gas turbines where turbine inlet temperature reaches 2650F and beyond, the current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine. Thus there is a need to develop new chemistries for TBC systems, consisting of bond coat and top coat, with enhanced durability. We propose to modi ...

  10. High Temperature Membrane Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 08b

    Membrane reactors have the potential to improve reactivity and productivity of various chemical syntheses, including transesterification. However, to be of value, these systems must provide a higher use temperature, improved chemical resistance, and better mass transfer. This project will identify chemically- and thermally-resistant membrane components, fabricate a membrane reactor based on thes ...
