  2. Improved TTHM Reduction Processing and Operational Efficiencies in Potable Water Distributions Systems Using Solar-Powered Circulation with Diffused, Near-Surface Aeration

    SBC: SolarBee, Inc.            Topic: A

    The U.S. EPA Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (S2DDBR) requires potable water utilities to maintain total trihalomethane (TTHM) concentrations below 80µg/L at all locations within distribution systems beginning in 2012 due to adverse health-effect risks. Air stripping effectively volatilizes TTHMs due to their low Henry’s law constants. However, commercially available ai ...

  3. Pipeline-Quality Methane from Anaeronbic Digestion Streams

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: I

    Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If consumed properly, use of manure-derived fuels can also protect against environmental problems such as ...

  4. Magnetocaloric Generator for Geothermal Heat Energy Recovery

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 10c

    Traditional means for production of electricity from geothermal (GT heat use hot water naturally occurring in some locations at or near Earths surface or hot water obtained from deep wells. The former limits geothermally produced electricity to very few locations in areas of significant volcanic activity. The latter offers more application sites but the extreme cost of the required deep, high-tem ...

  5. High-Shear-Strength, Radiation-Resistant Electrical Insulations for Plasma Confinement Magnets


    The United States Department of Energy is developing several devices to advance the development of fusion energy. Key components of these systems are the large, complex magnet systems used to shape and confine the plasma. Electrical insulations are needed to ensure that these magnets operate reliably over long periods of time, and improvements in shear strength and radiation resistance will be c ...

  6. Low-Temperature Stirling Engine for Geothermal Electricity Generation

    SBC: Cool Energy, Inc.            Topic: 10c

    Up to 2700 terawatt-hours per year of geothermal electricity generation capacity has been shown to be available within North America, typically with wells drilled into geologically active regions of the earths crust where this energy is concentrated (Huttrer, 2001). Of this potential, about half is considered to have temperatures high enough for conventional (steam-based) power production, while ...

  7. A Compact, Low Power Depolarization Backscattering Cloud Spectrometer for Water and Ice Discrimination

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 03b

    Mixed phase clouds, i.e. those that contain water droplets and ice crystals, make up a large fraction of the clouds that are found over the Arctic region. The radiative impact of these clouds on climate modulation is highly sensitive to the relative mix of water and ice, the size distribution of these hydrometeors and the shape and optical properties of the ice crystals. The properties of mixed ph ...

  8. Solid Polymer Electrolytes with High Lithium Ion Conductivity and Transport Number for Hybrid Electric Power-train Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: 09b

    Current energy storage devices have energy densities that are barely sufficient for low cost electric-vehicles and rely on lithium ion batteries that use flammable, unsafe, liquid electrolytes. However, in order to replace liquid electrolyes in lithium batteries for hybrid electric power train systems, solid polymer electrolytes, which have the advantages of safety and flexibility, must attain con ...

  9. A Watershed Based Web Tool Enhancing Climate Model Output Usage

    SBC: Ientech LLC            Topic: 07a

    The native format of netCDF generated from regional climate models (RCMs) is not readily accessible or useable by the general public who may not have analytical tools to plot, visualize, or analyze the data. In response to this need, the overall long term objective of this study is to make high resolution climate change simulations model results in the North American Regional Climate Change Assess ...

  10. Tunable Narrow-Band High Harmonic Beamline Optimized for Ultrafast Soft X-Ray Photoemission and Imaging

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    This proposed work addresses the needs of a short pulse, tunable and monochromatic extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray beamline that is table-top, low cost and easy-to-use for advanced material and nano- device studies using photoemission spectroscopy and nano-imaging techniques. The short-pulse and short- wavelength nature of this source enables capturing ultrafast dynamics in materials and nano-d ...
