  1. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  2. 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. Novel Proton Alignment Aid for Isotope Production

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    Accelerator produced radioisotopes are used every day for medical imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography PET). Importantly, research into the development of new isotopes suitable for this technique has expanded the biological characteristics which can be studied using this non-invasive method. This technique relies on robust production of these isotopes for the expansion of this e ...

  6. 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 ...

  10. High Throughput, High-Pressure Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Sample Environment

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 90

    We address a need of the neutron user community by creating a minimum viable prototype of the only high-throughput hydrostatic pressure small angle neutron scattering sample environment (HTHP-SANS-SE). Our HTHP-SANS-SE will greatly improve the ease of use and reliability of measurements under extreme environments, thereby increasing throughput on the beamline and expanding feasibility. Current HP- ...
