  1. Numerical Model Development For Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), placing the CO2 well above the critical point. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel combustion with CO2 under supercritical co ...

  2. Low cost, High speed Multi-probe Monitoring System for Subsurface Gases

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 24b

    Determination of soil gas concentrations and isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which respond to redox c ...

  3. SAMPA: Security Analysis and Monitoring to Prevent Abuse of High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    HPC systems should not be used to carry out cybercrimes or execute improper jobs. Existing defense solutions such as fingerprint-based approaches require real-time data collection, which inevitably impacts the performance of HPC. Moreover, those solutions are ineffective against adversarial scenarios where malicious users intend to hide their behavior patterns. Hence, it is essential to build ligh ...

  4. Conversion of Coal Wastes and Municipal Solids Mixtures by Pyrolytic Torrefaction and Entrained Flow Gasification

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 19b

    For the foreseeable future, the Nation’s energy demand will continue to come largely from indigenous fossil energy resources and hydrocarbon fuels. Specifically waste coal plus other opportunity fuels need to be utilized as a feedstock to eliminate a waste stream and optimized to maximize energy yield and cleanly minimize pollutant emissions. Modular equipment is needed for installation in coal ...

  5. CO2 to Chemicals: A Hybrid Process for Bioproduct Synthesis From CO2

    SBC: Dioxide Materials DBA Dioxide Recycle            Topic: 16b

    The chemical industry is seeking new domestic feedstocks that are independent of imported oil. Waste CO2 is an abundant and low-cost domestic source of carbon for making chemicals but there is a need for new technologies to cost-effectively capture and convert CO2 into useful materials. The objective of this project will be to develop an economically viable process that converts waste CO2 from sou ...

  6. Integrated Sorbent-based Lithium, Power, and Water Recovery from Geothermal Brines

    SBC: STRATOFIRE LC            Topic: 17a

    Geothermal brines used in power generation can be a potential source of critical elements, such as lithium. However, current technological approaches cannot achieve high selectivity of target elements available in trace concentrations from a complex geothermal brine matrix with high concentration of non-desirable mineral content. StratoFire and Southern Research propose to develop and optimize an ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High-Speed, NaNoscale Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: zeroK NanoTech Corporation            Topic: 24a

    Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) is an important tool in the study of nanoscale composition of materials; however current instrumentation is slow, requiring long data acquisition times and providing limited resolution. The overall aim of this research proposal is the development of improved SIMS instruments, made possible by new ion source technology. SIMS has been used successfully to study ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Atomically Precise Membranes for the Separation of Gases

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 07b

    Separations often account for a majority of process costs. This is because all traditional separation processes have inherent weaknesses that prevent the system from achieving perfect (or even near perfect in many instances) selectivity. These weaknesses result in large recycle streams and require multiple separation units in concert in order to produce a product clean enough for use or sale. An a ...
