  1. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...

  2. Advanced Analysis of Nuclear Waste Storage Cask Health

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: 33b

    At the present, the United States does not have a designated disposal site for used nuclear fuel — the nation therefore faces the prospect of extended long‐term storage (i.e., >60 years) and deferred transportation of used fuel at operating and decommissioned nuclear power plant sites. We need to augment nuclear waste canister Ageing Management programs with Modeling capability that is compreh ...

  3. Quest Renewables is developing a standalone solar racking system that can be placed in areas with a high-risk of natural disaster to provide steady electricity during and after natural disasters.

    SBC: QUEST RENEWABLES, INC.            Topic: 12d

    Quest Renewables is developing a standalone solar racking system that can be placed in areas with a high-risk of natural disaster (ie: high wind, hurricane, heavy snow, hail, and earthquake) to provide steady electricity during and after natural disasters without the support of the grid. This technology will maximize operability, maximize energy availability, and minimize restoration time (and cos ...

  4. Accurate and Rapid Measurement of Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash in Concrete Mixtures

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Proposal title: Accurate and Rapid Measurement of Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash in Concrete Mixtures Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEAs) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In Phase I, ...

  5. Fabrication and Validation of Electrical Components Produced From Covetic Materials

    SBC: NAECO, LLC            Topic: 07c

    Covetic materials are a class of metal-carbon composites whose electrical and thermal conductivity are reported to be up to 40-50% higher than pure metals or alloys. Although covetic materials have been produced from a number of metals including copper, silver and aluminum, their enhanced electrical and thermal conductivities have not yet been demonstrated in real world applications. NAECO, LLC pr ...

  6. 08b_area2_Production_of_Platform_Chemicals_by_Bioconversion_of_Plastic_Waste

    SBC: Southeastern Biochemicals, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    The bulk of post-consumer plastics ends up in landfills or in the environment. In principle, most discarded plastics can be recycled. In practice, the standard approaches generally yield materials that are of lower quality than the initial product, resulting in “downcycling”, or a loss of value. In contrast, we think that a bioconversion process can upcycle plastic waste, yielding value-added ...

  7. 20a. Automated Data Collection and Compression System for CO2 Monitoring Data

    SBC: Petrolern LLC            Topic: 20a

    Over the past two decades, there has been a drastic advance in the sensing technologies and data acquisition systems. These technologies have been deployed in carbon sequestration to continuously monitor CO2 migration and location during and after injection. A complex network of surface and underground sensors is often installed generating large volume of intricate datasets. These datasets require ...

  8. Direct Tomography Simulation for Combustion Flows

    SBC: Symplectic Research Inc            Topic: 07a

    In order to develop the next-generation of low-emission energy-efficient combustion devices, high-fidelity computational tools are needed that could enable engineers to maximize efficiency of their designs in a minimal time frame. High-performance exascale simulations of combustion phenomena are critically important to understand and develop novel combustion technologies operating at high pressure ...

  9. Intuitive Data Analysis for Assessing Network Performance atScale

    SBC: Dynamite Analytics LLC            Topic: 02b

    Computer network operations deal with ever-increasing volumes of monitoring data in many different formats. Human operators require effective analytic tools to correlate and interpret this data to sustain optimal levels of uninterrupted network performance. This project will deliver a practical solution for complex network traffic analysis founded on the concept of intelligent network operations. ...

  10. MEMS IMU Solutions for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: MDA15026

    Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) for flight systems (interceptors, airborne platforms, and space assets) are constrained by limits on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). These IMUs are also exposed to severe shock and vibration during storage, transport, launch, staging, deployment and engagement. This Phase II effort will continue research from the Phase I and achieve three main objectives 1 ...
