  5. Development of an Acoustic Instrument for Bubble Size Distribution Measurement in Mercury

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 09c

    Intense pulsed pressure waves induced by proton beam impact on mercury in a spallation target propagate in the mercury and reflect from vessel walls as expansion waves resulting in cavitation damage to the walls. Injection of gas bubbles (few micrometer diameter range and void fraction of the order of 1%) into the mercury flow is one of the promising methods under investigation to mitigate the dam ...

  8. Enhanced Process for the Extraction and Purification of Oils from Microalgae Using CO2 as a Solute

    SBC: Synaptic Research, Llc            Topic: 05d

    One of the principal technical and cost barriers to successful commercialization of algal biofuels as an alternative energy source is the inability to extract the useful oil components from the algae in an economical and environmentally sound fashion. Indeed, the DOE announcement for this proposal specifically notes topic areas (5d) regarding methods for extracting oils from microalgae as goal of ...
