  1. Plasma-Catalysis of CO2 and CH4 to Produce High Value Chemicals

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The goal of this work is to develop a new technology that can produce acetic acid in a single-step and do so at reduced temperature and ambient pressure. Current techniques to synthesize acetic acid require methanol and carbon dioxide, both of which are largely made from syngas produced from dry reforming of methane. However, high temperatures are needed to produce the syngas (of which a component ...

  2. A Cold Cycle 3He/4He Dilution Refirgerator for milliKelvin cooling with an Intermediate Heat Sink at 1.4 Kelvin

    SBC: Advanced Research Systems, Inc.            Topic: 32c

    As the size of quantum information systems (QIS) increases with technology development, the required cooling power at temperatures below 100mK will increase beyond that which currently available with commercially available milliKelvin cooler technologies. Additionally, as the size of QIS increases the number of electrical signal leads that require heat sinking in the 1K-temperature range will also ...

  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 ...

  4. High-Fidelity Design Support Tool for Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustors

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Direct fired supercritical CO2 (sCO2) cycles are gaining interest because of their potential as a zero emission power source that operates at high efficiency. The oxy-combustors in these systems operate at high supercritical pressures and current simulation tools to support design evaluation are deficient in this regime. Our proposed work here addresses this deficiency. The proposed program seeks ...

  5. Scalable Framework for Integrating Multi-Omics Data for Biosystem Analysis

    SBC: Omics Data Automation, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Understanding the genomic basis of economically important plants for growth time, crop yield, responses to drought and disease resistance is of critical importance to sustaining and improving food supplies for humans and livestock, as well as insuring sufficient raw material availability for industries that depend on plant materials, such as biofuel manufacture. Current computational methods for a ...

  6. Development of Intelligent Systems for Atomically Precise Membranes, Macromolecular Catalysts and Therapeutics

    SBC: ThirdLaw Technologies LLC            Topic: 06a

    The discovery of advanced materials and molecules is difficult and largely an experimental endeavor. Computers are used to simulate materials and molecules but rarely to design them. We aim to demonstrate that novel materials and molecules can be computationally “evolved” using Genetic Programming, and we will develop: (1) Atomically precise membranes that would separate molecules at a fractio ...

  7. Ultra High-Temperature Magnetic Bearing System for s-CO2 Turbines/Expanders

    SBC: ELECTRON ENERGY CORPORATION            Topic: 30f

    High performance supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) turbo-expanders/power turbines will provide significant increases in efficiency and compactness, while reducing greenhouse gases and water usage. However, the needed operation in a 900°C environment is a challenge for this type of turbomachinery. While magnetic bearings have many advantages over foil bearings, including no wear during startups, ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing of Scalable 3D Resonators

    SBC: GLOBAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: 29b

    This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR Office of Science related to Quantum Information Science (QIS) Supporting Technologies. There is the need for fabrication techniques for scalable 3D Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Structures for Quantum Information Systems. In this proposal we will develop an additive manufacturing approach to developing superconducting 3D microwave re ...

  9. Variable Flux Machines for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Asymmetric Technologies LLC            Topic: 13b

    The majority of hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles (HEV/EV) products use interior permanent magnet (IPM) synchronous machines for traction purpose due to the efficiency and power density consideration. IPM machines use high energy density rare earth based magnet materials such as neodymium and dysprosium. Variable flux (VF) machines using abundant and cheaper soft magnets such as AlNiC ...

  10. Nanoparticle Catalytic Discovery using Machine Learning Models with Chemisorption Inputs

    SBC: BIENA TECH LLC            Topic: 06a

    The mechanisms guiding nanocatalysis are poorly understood and extremely hard to model. Proposed effort attempts to provide a machine learning based platform that would guide the design of nanocatalytic materials for a variety of applications, beginning with the use of case of chloro-organic contaminant remediation. The current approaches either use conventional molecular dynamics coupled with ab ...
