  2. A New Approach to Diamond-Based High Heat Load Monochromators

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 06a

    Several hundred beam lines are used around the world at today¿s third-generation synchrotron facilities. These facilities must deal with monochromator-based performance problems due to high heat load. Many have resorted to the use of costly, complicated, high maintenance cryogenic cooling of silicon crystals. Single crystal diamond monochromators present an advantage over the silicon crystals ...

  3. Regeneration Study of Phase Transitional Absorption for CO2 Capture from Post Combustion Flue Gas

    SBC: 3 H Company            Topic: 25a

    CO2 is one of the major components that cause global warming. Current technologies for CO2 separation are too expensive, especially with respect to CO2 capture from post combustion flue gas. This project will develop a low-cost viable process, Phase Transitional Absorption, to capture CO2 from coal-based power plant flue gas. The features of Phase Transitional Absorption include high absorptio ...

  4. New Fabrication Technique for Ultrathin Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Higher gas transport membranes would enhance membrane separations, especially those associated with energy savings (e.g., oxygen or nitrogen enriched air). In these systems, gas transport is inversely proportional to the thickness of the membrane¿s active layer. This project will explore a novel route for preparing ultrathin (100-1000 angstroms) membranes with very high selectivity. First, memb ...

  5. Novel Membranes for Enhancing Value of Bio-Oil

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12b

    Biomass fast pyrolysis fuel (BioOil) is a liquid fuel made from wood chips and the low-grade wood byproducts of timber harvesting. However, when BioOil is stored, its chemicals polymerize, aided by the oxygen present in the BioOil. As a consequence, the viscosity of the BioOil increases over time, and, under extreme conditions, it can become a solid. In addition, the presence of water results i ...

  6. New Membrane Structure for Gas Separations

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Natural gas offers cost and environmental benefits over other conventional energy sources and decreases our dependence on oil imports. However, many sources of natural gas also contain large amounts of non-hydrocarbon gases, which make them uneconomical to market. Removal of these non-hydrocarbon impurities, in order to raise low quality raw gas to pipeline quality, could have significant econom ...

  7. Novel Ethanol Dehydration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12b

    There continues to be a need to produce fuel-grade ethanol from renewable sources. However, the cost of agricultural-based ethanol is quite severe, despite the fact that existing and new legislation provides significant incentives for its use. This project addresses novel routes to enhance the low-cost production of high-quality dry-fuel-grade ethanol by means of a novel water-ethanol separation ...

  8. Deployable Concepts for Discovery of Web Based STEM Education Content and Resources

    SBC: David Wojick            Topic: 64a

    Web-based educational content is being developed in vast numbers throughout the scientific community, much of it by funded by the DOE and other federal agencies. Most of this material is being developed on an ad hoc basis, and, presently, no feasible or systematic process is available for teachers, parents, or students to find it. This project will develop a systematic approach to find and colle ...

  9. Novel Coating Methods for Unique TBC/Bond Coat Architectures for Elevated Temperature Operation

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    Concerns over the use of domestic energy supplies and the desire to reduce CO2 emissions have motivated increased interest in the use of alternative fuels (such as coal ¿syngas¿) and alternative engine cycles. This interest has led to the increased use of an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) engine, which turns coal into syngas and then removes impurities from the coal gas before it ...

  10. Surface Modification of Alloys for Ultra-Supercritical Coal-Fired Boilers via Directed Vapor Deposition

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: 32a

    One of the available options for improved coal conversion is the development of ultra-supercritical (USC) high efficiency, coal-fired power plants that operate at much higher steam temperatures and pressures than current plants. In turn, the advancement of current coal fired boilers to USC conditions will require the development of cost effective materials solutions. Higher strength, creep resis ...
