  1. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  2. Development of a Profiling Microwave Radiometer for Offshore Wind Farms, Further Characterization of Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 16a

    The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more, in a range of atmospheric conditions.These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate observations, thus resulting in suboptimal turbine desi ...

  3. Stable, Low-Loss Joints for HTS Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems.One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that allow for a higher magnet performance and much larger temperature margins.Successful application of HTS in ...

  4. High Temperature Operable, Harsh Environment Tolerant Flow Sensors for Nuclear Reactor Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 32k

    A commonly noted sensor need for nuclear power systems is flow sensing in the various heat transfer mediums and to monitor medium velocities and characterize mixing and/or cooling.This is particularly needed for small modular reactors (SMR) and molten salt reactors (MSR).Such sensors must be able to tolerate high temperatures, high pressures, highly corrosive liquids, and radiation (neutron and ga ...

  5. Front End for Advanced Laser Driver for ICF Driver

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 22a

    Aqwest LLC proposes to further develop a "Front End" laser for an advanced inertial fusion energy (IFE) laser driver, integrate it with final amplifier (FA) modules developed by Aqwest for the Department of Energy (DOE), and conduct a parametric test evaluation.The development and commercialization of IFE is impeded by the lack of efficient and economical laser driver.IFE offers to tap almost unli ...

  6. Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Food Waste and Remediation of Aqueous Byproducts

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 10b

    Thermochemical processing via hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) is capable of processing a broad range of feedstocks, has a favorable net energy ratio, and produces an energy-dense liquid biooil product.However, there is an obstacle with current HTL processes that has hampered the adoption of this technology—the HTL process produces a considerable amount of aqueous organic byproducts and HTL oil r ...

  7. Non-Invasive Operations Tool for Dispatchable Geothermal Wells

    SBC: TECH4IMAGING LLC            Topic: 11b

    Geothermal energy is a nearly inexhaustible renewable and clean energy resource.The benefits of geothermal energy include high base load, dispatchability, and long-term stability of geothermal wells under exploitation.However, lack of information on how wells should be properly balanced between production and artificial replenishing puts wells at risk of being over exploited, which can permanently ...

  8. Solar Array Racking System

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: 12d

    Current solar module racking installation systems are multicomponent and require pre-ordering, transporting, inventorying, and labor-intensive deployment.There is an opportunity to automate installation, especially in the case of flat-roof commercial and ground-based arrays, to decrease racking costs by almost 30%.The proposed automated racking system produces the rack from raw material, on-demand ...

  9. Electro-dewatering of Cellulosic Nanomaterials

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 06b

    Cellulosic nanomaterials exhibit great potential in various applications due to unique properties.Abundant availability of feedstock has led to the industrialization of manufacturing processes to produce them.A significant cost-limiting factor to utilize cellulosic nanomaterials is dewatering or drying of nanocellulosic suspension.Technologies are needed to enable solid-liquid separation associate ...
