  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  5. Detector with Adjustable Aperture for Electron Beam Monitoring

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 33f

    Recently new high energy electron cooling beam projects, LEReC and CeC, were proposed at BNL as part of a transition to a future electron-ion collider EIC). Both projects are based on new principles and aimed at the improvement of luminosity for EIC operations. Efficient electron cooling of hadron beams requires a high quality high power electron beam with tight parameters energy and space traject ...

  8. Early Prediction and Prevention of Frac Screen-out using Deep Reinforcement Learning

    SBC: Petrolern LLC            Topic: 23b

    Screen-out is a costly problem in hydraulic fracturing operations for stimulation of conventional and unconventional reservoirs that could potentially lead to massive downtime and increased capital spending on a well. It can happen due to either operational reasons, such as equipment malfunction, or issues related to the formation. We believe that screen-out can be potentially diagnosed ahead of t ...
