  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. Passive Acoustic Metamaterial Proppants for Advanced Fracture Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Ineffective fracture design and practices in unconventional oil and natural gas wells present environmental risks and reduce the production efficiency of hydraulic fracturing, largely due to the inability to measure propped fracture geometry and behavior using current proppants and available tools. In this project, a unique proppant detection technology based on acoustic metamaterials is being dev ...

  3. A Rapid Damage Assessment System Using Machine Vision to Detect Damage to Utility Grid Infrastructure

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    Power outages from natural disasters not only result in billions of dollars of losses, associated health and safety impacts can result in significant loss of life. After a disaster, damage assessments of electrical grid infrastructure are critical for developing a strategy for power restoration including the optimal allocation of resources. Despite improvements, the damage assessment process is st ...

  5. Design and fabrication of Ultrafast Pixel Array Camera (UPAC)

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 25b

    NSL recognizes the need within the high energy science and inertial fusion to develop ultrafast diagnostics to assess plasma conditions for High Energy Density science and Inertial Fusion experiments. The current limitation of existing measurement tools is in the constraints of streak cameras. Therefore, there is interest in developing ultrafast pixel cameras by reading high speed photo detectors ...

  6. Functionalized Composite Nanofiber Membranes for Electrochemical Applications

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    The separator is a critical component of the battery that impacts both performance and safety. Separator technology is lagging in innovation comparison to cathode/anode chemistries. Current SOTA polyolefin (PO) separator technology is an antique utilizing traditional materials and processes. Moreover, investments in separator development (ARRA & DOE) have been focused on improving the manufacturin ...

  8. Design And Development Of TR-BHM: Time Resolved Beam

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 09b

    NSL recognizes the need within the accelerator community for robust and accurate beam halo monitoring detectors. Non-idealities in the accelerating equipment, uncertainties in current machine controls, and random noise driven fluctuations all combine to diminish the quality and focus of accelerated charged particle beams which results in degradation of the resulting physics, losses which decrease ...

  9. Zobi® Based Processes for Ultra-low Energy Algal Harvesting and Dewatering

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08d

    A successful algal industry would be transformative in the US. The very high productivity of algae relative to land plants will drive massive job creation in rural areas, provide biofuel and biopolymers to reduce dependence on foreign sources of oil, reduce fertilizer run-off with its corresponding water quality impairment, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable use of currently underutilized ...

  10. Integrating Sphere-Based Nephelometer for UAS Applications

    SBC: American Ecotech L.C.            Topic: 17a

    Novel compact and sensitive instruments measuring light scattering from microscopic airborne particles (i.e., aerosols) are needed for deployment on small aerial platforms to characterize aerosol influence on air quality, earth system dynamics, and visibility degradation. The Phase 1 project has developed, modeled, and characterized prototypes of such instruments based on transformative technologi ...
