  1. High Quality Natural Graphite for Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 14a

    This project will develop state-of-the-art processes for the conversion of natural flake graphite and other graphitic materials into high quality lithium-ion battery (LIB) grade anode materials. This will enable a $1B industry to develop and create a supply chain for graphite that does not exist in the United States today. This project will complete 4 years of work by Coulometrics to develop new e ...

  2. Manufacture of Metallic Fuel Pins With Advanced Geometries

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 30b

    New types of nuclear power plants are under development that will enable nuclear power to provide a large-scale source of environmentally benign power generation while improving safety and minimizing proliferation risks. For best performance, these reactors will require large numbers of uranium alloy fuel pins made with annular geometries that reduce fuel temperature and swelling compared to solid ...

  3. Electrostatic Precipitation System for Radionuclide Particle Collection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 04a

    To monitor for compliance with nonproliferation treaties such as the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, approximately 80 ground stations around the world collect radionuclide aerosols from the atmosphere and measure the isotopic composition to detect, locate, and characterize nuclear events. These stations process enormous volumes of air to collect minute amounts of the radioactive isotopes ne ...

  4. PEM based Vacuum Desalination System

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 09c

    The Company’s development is addressing one of the most basic human needs: access to potable water. Without adequate potable water, society succumbs to human suffering i.e. dehydration, disease and inevitably limited supply results in human conflict. There is therefore a need for an efficient, and cost effective method of producing quality potable water from low grade sources such as brackish or ...

  5. Development of an In-Situ Method for Cable Condition Monitoring Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 14c

    The sustainability of current fleet of nuclear power plants depends on the performance of key components such as cables which cannot easily or economically be replaced. The product of this project will provide the technology to verify the performance of cable insulation material that can degrade as plants age.

  6. High Oxygen/Nitrogen Selectivity Membrane

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

    This program develops a novel membrane module which produces low cost oxygen enriched air. This program will 1) reduce energy requirements for small or medium size furnaces by up to 60% and 2) provide high CO2 concentration exhaust streams for enhanced concentrating of CO2 for CO2 sequestering.

  8. PFLOTRAN Web application

    SBC: Subsurface Insights            Topic: 02b

    A key requirement for optimum use of subsurface resources is the ability to accurately simulate complex processes. Subsurface Insights will develop a wrapper around existing high end DOE modeling software which will allow commercial entities to efficiently use this software.

  10. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...
