  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 ...

  3. Very High Field Hybrid Superconducting Magnet Using Bi-2212

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    High energy physics research, modern medicine and advanced materials are continually demanding stronger magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of High Temperature Superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technolo ...

  4. Second Generation Glass Fiber Composites Fabricated from Retired Wind Turbine Blades

    SBC: CARBON RIVERS LLC            Topic: 15c

    Glass fiber is the most common reinforcement material for all polymer composites (a $43.93 billion dollar market in 2017), including all wind turbine blades of which it’s estimated there will be over 4.8 million tonnes of by 2050. However, there exists no economical method of handling these composites once they reach end of life, meaning they are all currently destined for the landfill. For wind ...

  6. High Purity 6-inch+ Diameter Single Crystal Germanium Wafers for Dark Matter CCD Photon Detectors

    SBC: PHDS COMPANY            Topic: 28e

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of High Energy Physics Research supports user facilities studying dark energy. The facilities include ground-based telescopes that would benefit from the availability of semiconductor focal planes with sensitivity ranging into the infrared. Greater infrared sensitivity will provide observation of red-shift data on the largest possible number of astronomical ob ...

  7. Instrumentation and Control Design for Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 19e

    Small Modular Reactors are one of the most compelling options for meeting the growing clean energy demands of the U.S. While safer and costing less to build and operate than their conventional counterparts, there are fundamental design differences between traditional commercial nuclear power plants and small modular reactors that require the development of new and innovative sensors and measuremen ...

  8. Distributed Antenna System for Wireless Data Communication in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 29a

    Implementing wireless technologies in nuclear power plants plays a key role in reducing operating and maintenance costs by facilitating a more mobile workforce and enabling wireless equipment condition monitoring for predictive maintenance. However, there are multiple barriers that impede widespread implementation of wireless technologies in the nuclear power industry including electromagnetic and ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High Yield, Atomically Precise Chemical Activation

    SBC: Covalent LLC            Topic: 07a

    Nature is the master manufacturer. We propose to mimic the way the ribosome builds biomolecules in order to make complex molecular building blocks that will, in their first use as a product, function as very complex pores in our water purification and desalination nanomembrane system. These pores will be focused on removing extremely challenging contaminants and toxins. With the expanding use of d ...
