  1. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  2. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Low-Illumination Level UTC Photodetectors for QIS Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 32d

    High quantum efficiency photodetectors are a critical component of quantum squeezed state systems. Providing optical-to-microwave transduction fidelity allows these systems to significantly improve upon the noise performance of traditionally shot noise limited photonic links and sensors. However, as quantum information science is still a small, but rapidly growing field, there is a distinct lack o ...

  6. SHORT FIBER PREFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE PART PRODUCTION

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: 13f

    The STTR effort will evaluate an aligned, short carbon fiber (CF) material called Tailorable Universal Feedstock for Forming (TuFF) for forming of complex geometry preforms, assess process and material challenges and demonstrate mechanical properties using HP-RTM and/or Wet Compression Molding. TuFF material has demonstrated highly aligned, high fiber volume fraction (~50-60%) components with full ...

  7. Development of High Efficient Ion Selective Membrane Separator for Lithium Polysulfide Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 19a

    A growth of renewable energy technologies will help to accommodate the growing demand for electricity, provided that energy storage technologies address the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power. Lithium polysulfide (Li-PS) redox flow batteries (RFBs) have been considered as one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies because of their high energ ...

  8. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...
