  1. Biomass to Olefins by Catalytic Fast Pyrolysis

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 02d

    Aerodyne Research Inc. (ARI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) plan to develop an efficient catalytic system to convert biomass into olefins for the production of hydrocarbons in the gasoline, diesel, and/or jet fuel range by way of catalytic fast pyrolysis. Conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks from resources as varied as corn stover, grasses, wood, and sugar cane bagasse is ...

  2. Lowering Energy use for Copper Production

    SBC: BLUE PLANET STRATEGIES, LLC            Topic: 04d

    Copper is a commodity essential to modern society and its production is very energy intensive. Half of U.S. copper consumption goes to electrical, heating, and plumbing infrastructure in building construction and energy use for copper production topped 43 trillion BTUs in the early 1990s. Currently the U.S. imports about 1/3 of the 2.6 billion pounds of copper used annually. This opens our economy ...

  3. Ultra-High Strength Nanostructured Magnesium Alloy-Composite

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: 04e

    Current efforts of DOE to create future lightweight systems in order to attain significant energy saving, cost reduction and improved efficiency requires development of advanced nanostructured lightweight composite materials with improved ductility and high tensile strength. Magnesium (Mg) with a density of approximately two-thirds of aluminum is the lightest structural material. Despite this adva ...

  4. Spiral Welded Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Large-scale wind turbine designs are significantly constrained by transportation limits. As utility scale wind turbines have developed, they have steadily increased in size and have seen a steady decrease in cost of energy. However, further increases in on-shore turbine size beyond 3MW are prohibited by hard limits in the size of components that can be economically transported to the wind farm sit ...

  5. Durable Low-Emissivity Coating for Vacuum Glass and Glazing Surfaces Exposed to the Environment

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 08b

    Vacuum glazing requires a scratch-resistant Low-E coating. Microscopic pane spacers are required to prevent the two panes from touching under external pressure, but create high contact stresses which can scratch glass and existing Low-E coatings during pane movement with temperature change. Hard pyrolytic coatings can be used, but allow four times more radiant heat loss than sputtered coatings, co ...

  6. High Permeance Hybrid Membranes for CO2 Separation

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: 09a

    The capability to efficiently remove carbon dioxide from industrial gas streams is desirable for a wide variety of applications. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a byproduct of many industrial processes associated with the transformation of fossil fuels into usable products such as heat, electricity, and chemicals. In addition to being a greenhouse gas pollutant, the presence of carbon dioxide in chemical ...

  7. Minimizing Fuel Assembly Distortion in LWRs to Prolong Life and Increase LWR Sustainability

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 20c

    Topic 20c of DOEs SBIR solicitation seeks grant applications to develop technologies for the assessment and mitigation of materials degradation in Light Water Reactors in order to extend the service life including methods that can mitigate or predict irradiation and aging effects An important degradation phenomenon that limits the service life and energy production of Light Water Reactor (LWR) ...

  8. Optimization of CO2- Coal Slurry

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 24a

    Consumption of coal and other fossil fuels is a major contributor to emission of carbon dioxide and criteria pollutants. Coal gasification technologies equipped with carbon capture and sequestration (CC & amp;S) technology can help address both these problems. However, current coal gasification concepts suffer from a combination of low efficiency and high capital cost. TIAX proposes to investigate ...

  9. Engineering High Resolution Scintillator for Next-Generation High Frame Rate Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    Recent developments in synchrotron radiation sources have generated an urgent need for high performance X-ray detectors. While new imaging devices have been developed that employ high performance CCD sensors, what is currently lacking in these detectors is an adequate X-ray-to-light converter that will provide high performance in terms of spatial resolution, high efficiency and, perhaps most impor ...

  10. High Efficiency High Resolution Sensor for Hard X-Ray Microtomography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 12e

    X-ray microtomography (XMT) is a powerful tool for researchers in a wide range of fields, allowing 3D imaging at the micron scale. Many of the DOE synchrotron tomography facilities are involved in research that requires hard X-rays (high energy, up to 100 keV) in order to get better penetration into metal samples. At these higher energies the scintillator quickly becomes the limiting factor result ...
