  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Topic 16a- Low-Cost Desalination System Driven by Hydrokinetic Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 16a

    Ocean and tidal currents contain a huge amount of power that is currently untapped. This power could be used very efficiently to desalinate water for water-poor regions located near coastlines. A major obstacle is the high cost of manufacturing and deployment of ocean systems. We propose an innovative new technology that can dramatically reduce the manufacturing and deployment costs of hydrokineti ...

  5. Advanced Analysis of Geothermal Heat Pump System Data

    SBC: Ground Energy Support LLC            Topic: 07a

    Geothermal heat pumps utilize heat pump technology to access the ubiquitous and plentiful renewable thermal energy in the shallow subsurface. While there are tremendous potential economic and environmental benefits in the development of this resource, high up‐front installation costs and lack of confidence in the performance of geothermal heat pump systems are significant market barriers to the ...

  6. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  7. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  8. 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.

  9. 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. Diamond Strip Detectors for Charged Particle Tracking, 24b

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Applied Diamond will make large area particle detectors of CVD diamond for use in nuclear physics experiments at DOE and other laboratories. These detectors will reduce the operating expense and increase the capabilities of these facilities accelerating advances in nuclear science.
