  1. Spouted Fluid Beds for Chemical Looping Combustion/Gasification

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 15a

    It is critical to have a validated modeling tool for fluid bed-based chemical looping combustion to develop scaled-up designs of equipment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal and biomass fuels in power generation. The proposed work aims to develop such a modeling tool for widespread use in research and industry.

  2. AlxIn1-xP LEDs with II-VI Cladding Layers for Efficient Red and Amber Emission

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: 11c

    Realizing solid state lighting systems with high efficiency and enhanced functionality will require the adoption of color-mixing (cm-LEDs) architectures combining highly efficient red, green, blue and amber light emitting diodes. Already, the hybrid architectures (hy-LEDs) pair phosphor-converted wide bandgap nitride LEDs with (AlxGa1-x)0.51In0.49P red LEDs to improve the emission spect ...

  3. All-Electronic Gamma Rejection Method in Neutron Detection

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 26c

    Neutron-sensitive microchannel Plates (MCPs) are now providing state-of-the-art user-based, high spatial resolution neutron imaging systems at several US government neutron research facilities as well as university research reactors. Using enriched 10B, thermalized neutron detection efficiencies exceeding 50% have been demonstrated, and cold neutron detection efficiencies of up to 70% have been do ...

  4. Hybridization of Freeze Casting with Additive Manufacturing for Simplified Production of High Performance SOFCs Topic and subtopic: 18b

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 18b

    Despite enormous advantages of high efficiency and fuel flexibility, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) have seen limited development in mobile, including aerospace, application areas. On the technical front, this condition has been primarily driven by the low specific power density of SOFCs, typically less than 0.5 kW/kg. On the manufacturing front, limitations have been related to catalyst infiltrat ...

  5. Multi-scale hierarchical high-temperature tungsten-low Z nanocomposites as adaptive fusion plasma-facing components

    SBC: Energy Driven Technologies, LLC            Topic: 19a

    Superconducting magnets used for plasma confinement in magnetic fusion energy systems operate at cryogenic temperatures. The support structures used to hold them in place act as a heat leak path from room temperature areas to the superconductors. This results in the need for additional cryogenic refrigeration capacity, which is expensive. High-strength, low thermal conductivity, radiation-tolerant ...

  6. Development of novel mesoporous substrates for a stable liquid-metal plasma-material interface under ultra long-pulse plasmas

    SBC: Energy Driven Technologies, LLC            Topic: 20d

    One daunting challenge facing future plasma burning fusion reactors is the extreme conditions that expose plasma-facing components (wall materials) are exposed to. Extreme particle and heat fluxes exceeding 10-20 MW/m2 drive traditional material surfaces out of equilibrium and induce topographical and compositional changes that can have deleterious effects on the plasma edge and, ultimately, the c ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing of Large Scale Heat Exchanger (Topic 18a)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Nickel super alloys, such as Inconel®, are leading candidates for fossil energy-based power production components due to their resilience in extreme environments. A significant technical roadblock to the implementation of nickel-based power plant systems is the inability to produce large-scale components in a cost competitive manner. We will address the problem of manufacturing large, low-cost su ...

  8. Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Brown Grease from Wastewater Treatment Plants to Biodiesel using Supercritical Fluids.

    SBC: CF Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    The Department of Energy has a mission to ensure America's prosperity and security by addressing energy and environmental challenges. This Phase II project develops and demonstrates the domestic, economic and environmentally responsible production of biodiesel fuel from brown grease, a waste that is currently a burden disposed in landfills or incinerated. The conversion of "brown grease" from dome ...

  9. Developing Biomineralization Technology for Ensuring Wellbore Integrity

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Since drilling the earliest gas and oil wells, migration of hydrocarbons to the surface has challenged the oil and gas industry. With the recent onset of geologic CO2 sequestration activities, it has become even more important to develop well leakage mitigation strategies that can seal even microscopic apertures around injection, abandoned, and monitoring wells—especially in cases where traditio ...

  10. Compact Laser Hygrometer for In Situ Measurement 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 mixed phase clouds, may be ac ...
