  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. Siloxane Removal from Biogas Using a Novel Drop-In Technology

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: H

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and “green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from t ...

  5. A New Laser Based Sensor for Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Safeguards

    SBC: Energy Research Company            Topic: 21c

    Energy Research Company (ERCo), together with Los Alamos National Laboratory, is developing a new laser-based sensor for improving the safety and efficiency of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing. In commercial-scale nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities there exists a stress between the operator and the inspectorate that results from an attempt to balance nuclear fuel production and international safe ...

  6. Structured Catalyst for Efficient Production of Renewable Jet Fuel

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    Extensive work on developing new, high yield biologic sources of triglycerides continues around the world in an effort to diversify the worlds energy sources. Triglycerides, such as vegetable and algal oils, naturally consist of long hydrocarbon chains, making them excellent starting points for fuels. However, the traditional approach of transesterifying these compounds to methyl or ethyl ethers a ...

  7. On The Use of Highly Densified Bi-2212 Wire for Superconducting Magnet Application

    SBC: Hjc Enterprise, Llc            Topic: 30d

    The Department of Energy is seeking ancillary technologies to enhance the performance of high filed superconducting materials critical for the very high-field magnets to be used in a future particle accelerator. Bi-2212 round wire, a high temperature superconductor, is one of the best candidates for this purpose. This composite consists of many small filaments filled with fine powder in silver mat ...

  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 ...

  10. Supercharger for Heat Pumps in Cold Climates


    For many years, electrically driven heat pumps have proven to be an effective method of extracting heat from ambient air. As air temperature falls, however, heat pump performance falls off, essentially limiting their year round usefulness to warmer climates. In colder climates heat pump-equipped heating systems typically have a secondary means to provide heat, usually natural gas or electricity. ...
