  1. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH EFFICIENCY, SMALL SCALE HEAT ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES FOR POINT OF USE ELECTRICITY GENERATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Sencera Energy Inc            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    The goal of the GENSETS program is to realize an affordable generator-engine system with 1 kW of electrical output, fuel energy content to electricity conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, long life, and low emissions. A system can be broken into 5 primary subsystems: (1) a chemical combiner or burner, (2) an engine, (3) an alternator, (4) a heat rejector, and (5) a controller. This work focuses on ...

  2. An Innovative VOCs Incinerator

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    An innovative, non-catalytic high destruction efficiency, and low fuel consumption VOC incinerator is proposed to reduce VOCs from condensate tanks and other low heat value waste gas streams. The proposed technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. The proposed technology can completely eliminate undesirable VOC emissions. It uses effective heat recirculation from the hot ...

  4. Ion Implantation Processes in AlN for Wide Bandgap Power Devices

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: 02a

    Current and next-generation power systems require power devices that operate at high voltages and high frequencies beyond the reliable operating limit of the present silicon- and silicon carbide- based power devices. The material properties of AlN permit power devices to operate at these extremes, promoting device shrinkage for automotive applications as well as faster switching and more efficient ...

  5. Durable High Temperature Coatings For Utility Scale Gas Turbine Hot Gas Path Components

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    For advanced gas turbines where turbine inlet temperature reaches 2650F and beyond, the current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine. Thus there is a need to develop new chemistries for TBC systems, consisting of bond coat and top coat, with enhanced durability. We propose to modi ...

  7. Advanced Compression System for Radionuclide Monitoring

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 26b

    Radioxenon monitoring systems are an important tool for detecting nuclear weapon tests around the world. These systems must be reliable and have low contamination potential because nuclear detonations can occur without warning and the opportunity to detect these events is relatively brief. Additionally, mobile systems must be compact, lightweight, and efficient to support onsite inspection and nea ...

  8. A Climate Impact Assessment Service for Urban and Regional Planning

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Throughout the world, there is a critical need for readily accessible modeling tools that can transform climate change research into useful intelligence that is relevant to local decision-makers. These individuals need more than the standard visualizations of global-scale temperature and precipitation changes that are currently available on informational websites; they need that data translated in ...

  9. Enhanced Dropwise Condensation for Improved Dry Cooling Efficiency

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    With the increase of energy consumption and water stress, power plant cooling, which accounts for 40% of fresh water withdrawal, has been received more and more attention. Dry cooling technology is currently the most feasible solution to reduce this water consumption. However, the cost of the dry cooling system can be more than 5 times of the typical wet cooling system. Increase the dry cooling ef ...

  10. AN INDUSTRIAL MEMBRANE SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR DISTRIBUTED USED OIL RE-REFINING

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 09c

    Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. Presently, about 9% of the collected used oil is re-refined at six facilities in US. The majority of thi ...
