  1. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Every year, the global wind industry loses an estimated $100M or more to damage caused by lightning.A new blade coating will reduce the damage to wind turbine blades caused by lightning by promoting the formation of ionization channels over the surface of the turbine blades, providing a safe external path for lightning energy to reach ground and preventing damaging blade punctures.The coating cons ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Gamma-Heated In-Core Thermoacoustic Sensor

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: 30a

    We will develop an acoustically-telemetered, frequency-multiplexed, gamma-heated thermoacoustic sensors that can simultaneously monitor local gamma flux and coolant temperature at multiple locations in the core of an operating commercial nuclear reactor. These sensors will require no external power source and will telemeter temperature encoded as the frequency of the sound radiated by the sensor a ...

  4. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Lightning strikes and near-strikes on wind turbine blades cost wind farm operators millions of dollars every year, representing one of their largest O&M risks and expenses, as well as a primary cause of turbine downtime (resulting in lost power production). These negative effects increase the levelized cost of wind energy. With the incidence of lightning strikes increasing as turbines get larger, ...

  5. Developing BEM Applications for the Reinsurance Industry

    SBC: Prisere Llc            Topic: 09c

    Inefficient use of energy wastes capital that could be more productively invested in other segments of the U.S. economy. At the same time, the reinsurance industry is eager to reduce property losses arising from increasingly severe weather. But existing reinsurance loss models do not take into consideration the resiliency benefits of energy efficiency measures. The objective of the Phase I SBIR re ...

  6. A Preclinical Trial of Therapeutic Angiogenesis Plus Angioplasty and Stenting for Renal Vascular Disease

    SBC: Leflore Technologies LLC            Topic: 400

    Abstract Chronic kidney disease CKD is a progressive disorder affecting almost of the general population and this disease has shown a relentless growth over the past decades Patients with CKD have higher rates of hospitalization greater mortality shorter life expectancy and their healthcare costs are up to times more expensive than non CKD patients Thus treatments to slow halt ...

  7. Ion Exchange Materials for Lithium Extraction (Topic: 15, Subtopic: e)

    SBC: Lilac Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 15e

    Electric vehicles are creating unprecedented demand for lithium. Most lithium is produced from brine resources. Conventional methods for extracting lithium from brines suffer from low lithium recovery and cannot access the expanded resources needed for mass adoption of electric vehicles. The Department of Energy has supported a great variety of projects relate ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Spouted Fluid Beds for Mercury Removal from Coal

    SBC: MICROBEAM TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    This Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of mitigation strategies to decrease mercury and other potential hazardous elements in coal prior to combustion or gasification. The Microbeam team including the University of North Dakota and Envergex, LLC is developing a method of coal beneficiation that not only removes mercury, sulfur and other hazardous trace elements, bu ...

  10. Development of a Non adjuvanted VLP Vaccine against Stealth H N Influenza

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The avian origin H N influenza virus that emerged in humans in China in presents a unique challenge to vaccine development because it is poorly immunogenic Neutralizing antibodies are not detected in acute phase infection Anti H antibody responses are significantly delayed and exhibit low avidity in comparison with antibodies generated following seas ...
