The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Coversion of waste water treatment plant fats oils and greases "brown grease" into bio diesel using supercitical fluids and robust catalyst processes./ Same as LOI on headers

    SBC: CF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 10

    The Department of Energy has a mission to ensure America's prosperity and security by addressing energy and environmental challenges. This Phase I project aims to produce domestic, economic and environmentally responsible biodiesel fuel from brown grease, a waste that is currently disposed in landfills or incinerated. The conversion of "brown grease" from wastewater treatment plant’s fats oils a ...

  2. Mitigation of Aerosol Emissions from Solvent-based Post-Combustion CO2 Capture Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 18

    Reactive absorption-based carbon dioxide capture processes using solvents is the preferred technology for large scale capture of carbon dioxide in flue gases from coal-fired power plants. This Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of mitigation strategies to decrease the quantity of aerosols that are formed from such post-combustion capture systems in the presence of s ...

  3. Spouted Fluid Beds for Chemical Looping Combustion/Gasification

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 15a

    This SBIR/STTR project targets the development of a validated modeling/design tool for predicting the behavior of spouted fluidizied beds for chemical looping combustion/gasification applications of coal and biomass fuels and fuel blends. Chemical looping is an advanced energy conversion technology for generating a pure CO2 effluent, which can then be sequestered or utilized. A spouted fluidized b ...

  4. High Charge Density Hydrocarbon-Based PEMs

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 12c

    Despite incremental improvements in the technology, polyfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) membranes are still not an ideal fuel cell membrane material and their drawbacks (e.g., high cost and low mechanical strength at high temperature) require development of alternative polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) for successful adoption of fuel cells as reliable and inexpensive energy conversion devices. The g ...

  5. Compact laser hygrometer for in-situ measurements of water vapor from small unmanned aerial vehicles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 17a

    The rate of climate change in the Arctic is larger than elsewhere on Earth. The Arctic has unique and complex couplings and feedbacks between the surface and the atmosphere that in turn modify the radiative balance there differently than elsewhere. Current understanding holds that an increase in downwelling long wave radiative flux, driven by increased water vapor and clouds, may be accelerating c ...

  6. Method for Separation of Coal Conversion Products from Sorbents/Oxygen Carriers

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 20e

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of a technology for segregating fuelbased contaminants (char and ash) from oxygen carrier material in the context of chemical looping combustion application. In chemical looping, the wellmixed solids that flow from the fuel reactor consisting of char, ash, and oxygen carrier particles cannot be completely separated in ...

  7. Novel Carbon Fiber Synthesis Process Based on Joule Heating

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 11c

    Current methods for manufacturing carbon fiber rely on high temperature ovens for the stabilization/oxidation and carbonization steps, which tend to be slow and energy intensive. As such, carbon fiber composites are expensive then steel, which limits their use in costsensitive, highvolume industrial applications such as automobiles, oil and gas, and infrastructure. To reduce energy consumption and ...
