  1. Solid Waste Remediation System (SWRS) for Small Contingency Base Camps

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD12EP2

    To meet the requirements of the Army Solid Waste Remediation System, for Small Contingency Base Camps, Altex has developed a Compact Ward Furnace Energy Recovery System (CWFERS), which was proven feasible by testing and analysis, under a Phase I award. The system reduces fuel consumption by 92% fuel, compared to a traditional remediation system, and converts the energy in the bulk waste to hot wa ...

  2. Energetic Deposition of Fully Dense, High-Quality Doped-Ceria Coatings for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells


    Fuel cells convert chemical energy in a fuel directly to electrical power. They have several advantages over other energy sources including: highly efficient energy conversion, fuel flexibility, reduced air pollution, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced oil consumption, and expanded use of renewable power. State-of-the-art Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) use lanthanum strontium cobalt iron oxi ...

  3. Small, lightweight low loss magnetic materials for passive inductors

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: 08d

    Opportunities exists to use high moment magnetic nanoparticles CoxFe100-x to replace annealing-stabilized high induction -FeCo phase as the primary phase in the currently used soft magnetic materials (e.g. HITPERM). The key to this development is to design advanced nanocomposites containing high moment nanoparticles for small, lightweight passive inductors, by using an innovative cost-effective ...

  4. Solids Handling System for Biomass Conversion

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 03b

    To produce drop-in biofuel from lignocellulosic biomass materials at prices competitive to fossil fuels requires consistent and reliable solid biomass feeders for pressurized reactors. Experience with coal has not been reliable, and the lower density and more irregular configurations of raw biomass create even more feed problems. Preprocessing to create a more dense and consistent feed can help, ...

  5. Silicon Carbide Quasi-Bipolar Junction Transistor (QBJT)-Based boost converter platform for up-tower wind applications

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 10b

    SiC power electronics are ideally suited for reducing the size and weight of power electronics systems that are used in wind power converters. Present power electronics systems require large transformers which operate a modest frequencies that prevents their use on top of the turbine tower. The electrical parasitics introduced by the interconnections between wind turbine and power conversion elect ...

  6. Solids Separation for a Feedstock-Flexible Biorefinery

    SBC: Hyrax Energy, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Hyrax Energy, Inc. is the first company to spin-out of the DOEs Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) and is the exclusive owner of intellectual property that enables biorefineries based on ionic liquids that that operate at a fraction of the cost and carbon footprint of competing technologies. Ionic liquids are true solvents for cellulose, which promises amongst other things to greatly si ...

  7. Removable, Sequestration Coatings for Mitigating Hazardous Contaminants Related to Deactivation and Decommissioning Activities

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 13e

    The Department of Energy (DOE) has identified the need for tools and technologies to ensure the safety of personnel who carry out decontamination and decommissioning work at unused nuclear facilities. Strippable, fixative coatings with a visual indication of contaminant (e.g., elemental mercury and its ions) capture would improve safety and minimize hazards and waste during the demolition process ...

  8. Fiber Optic O2/CO2 Sensor to Monitor Atmospheric Leakage at CO2 Injection Sites

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    The storage of industrially generated carbon dioxide (CO2) in deep geologic formations is being seriously evaluated as a method for reducing carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere, and CO2 injection is being used for enhanced oil recovery, leaving two thirds of the CO2 stored underground. Reliable and cost-effective monitoring is required to demonstrate that the geologic storage is safe and ...

  9. Enhanced low cost high temperature electrolyte

    SBC: Leyden Energy            Topic: 08a

    Li-ion battery calendar and cycle life degrade at elevated temperatures due to processes involving the interaction of electrolyte salt, solvents and battery electrode materials. The major factor impacting automotive Li-Ion battery pack safety is the use of high vapor pressure and low flashpoint carbonate electrolyte solvents. Development of high voltage cathode materials requires new solvents and ...

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Regular inspection of piping for corrosion damage is crucial in nuclear power plants to prevent leakage of radioactive material into the environment, and to allay concerns of residents living within the vicinity. However, currently used methods for detecting corrosion on interior surfaces of reactor components are difficult to apply in confined spaces and do not always provide enough information. ...
