  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Durable ALON Windows for High Power Accelerator Applications

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: 13d

    Materials currently used for high power RF accelerator applications are typically opaque in visible wavelengths. The use of ALON Optical ceramic will combine a high level of RF performance while simultaneously allowing the inside of superconducting cavities to be monitored for issues such as arcing. Scientist at Surmet will work closely with scientists at Thomas Jefferson Labs to collect the neces ...

  9. Flow Battery Membrane

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 19a

    Vanadium redox batteries (VRB) are rugged, multi K-Whr long life flow batteries that can store large amounts of regenerative energy in liquid form and are useful as energy accumulators in intermittent renewable power plants such as wind and solar, or storage of off-peak power generation. Cost-effective, highly selective membranes are needed for enhancing the commercial attractiveness of this techn ...

  10. Quantum Cascade Laser System for Simultaneous Measurements of 13CO and C18O Carbon Monoxide Isotopologues

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 29b

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is a key sink for atmospheric OH and thus changes in carbon monoxide concentrations have an impact on the abundance and chemistry of many other atmospheric gases. However, the CO budget is not well determined. The global sources and sinks of CO are inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric carbon monoxide (13CO, C18O and CO) is one of the m ...
