  1. Low-temperature chemical looping reforming catalysts for small-footprint GTL

    SBC: Catalytic and Redox Solutions, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Methane from U.S. shale deposits has significantly increased the usable amount of this domestic energy resource. Meanwhile, flaring of natural gas, which is commonly practiced in shale-oil production, exceeded 6 billion cubic meters in the United State annually. This leads to a waste of valuable energy resources and significant emissions of greenhouse gas. As such, small-footprint technologies tha ...

  2. Compact, High-Efficiency Air Handling Unit (CHE-AHU) for Residential HVAC Systems

    SBC: UPSTATE PARTS & SUPPLY INC            Topic: 09a

    AHUs for residential HVAC systems typically use low-efficiency blower fans (evaporator side) and simple axial fans (condenser side), and the fan and the surrounding High Resistance Mediums (heat exchanger. filter, burner, etc.) are treated as stand-alone components during design optimization. With the recent introduction of high speed electronically commuted motors (high- speed ECM), it is now pos ...

  3. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES., LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...

  6. Novel Membrane System for Lithium Recovery from Oilfield Brines

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 17b

    Enriching lithium from oilfield brines while performing desalination of the produced water can provide a solution that recovers valuable lithium from highly mineralized brine while at the same time making possible to reuse and recycle the treated waste water. State-of-the-art technologies for recovering lithium from oilfield brine include gravity separation, gas flotation, and flocculation. These ...

  7. Exploiting Acoustics for Subsurface Communication

    SBC: ALIEN SANDBOX LLC            Topic: 20b

    Reliable, safe, and robust storage of CO2 beneath the surface is important today and is expected to become even more critical in the coming decades. Safe storage requires knowledge regarding the dynamics and evolution of subsurface CO2 reservoirs. Temperature, pressure, and potentially other sensors are used to monitor important subsurface zones at various depths. An effective and relatively conve ...

  8. Infinitely Recyclable Bioplastics (Topic 8, subtopic b)

    SBC: SusMer, Inc            Topic: 08b

    Plastics are indispensable materials for the modern life and global economy, but current practices in the generation and disposal of commodity plastics are largely unsustainable and causing severe worldwide plastics pollution and enormous materials' energy and value losses to the economy. In particular, plastics are a material of choice in packaging applications but they are currently designed for ...

  10. Amplifiers for High Repetition Rate Diode-Pumped Ultra-Intense Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The problem being addressed is the development of high intensity ultrashort pulse lasers, in recognition that today’s ultra-high intensity lasers are limited to repetition rates of < 10 Hz. Technical solutions are sought to enable the generation of high energy (joule-level) laser pulses that can be focused to highly relativistic intensity at high repetition rates (100-1000 Hz). The proposed proj ...
