  1. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  2. Low-Illumination Level UTC Photodetectors for QIS Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 32d

    High quantum efficiency photodetectors are a critical component of quantum squeezed state systems. Providing optical-to-microwave transduction fidelity allows these systems to significantly improve upon the noise performance of traditionally shot noise limited photonic links and sensors. However, as quantum information science is still a small, but rapidly growing field, there is a distinct lack o ...

  3. SHORT FIBER PREFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE PART PRODUCTION

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: 13f

    The STTR effort will evaluate an aligned, short carbon fiber (CF) material called Tailorable Universal Feedstock for Forming (TuFF) for forming of complex geometry preforms, assess process and material challenges and demonstrate mechanical properties using HP-RTM and/or Wet Compression Molding. TuFF material has demonstrated highly aligned, high fiber volume fraction (~50-60%) components with full ...

  4. Development of High Efficient Ion Selective Membrane Separator for Lithium Polysulfide Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 19a

    A growth of renewable energy technologies will help to accommodate the growing demand for electricity, provided that energy storage technologies address the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power. Lithium polysulfide (Li-PS) redox flow batteries (RFBs) have been considered as one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies because of their high energ ...

  5. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...

  6. An Improved Refractive Focusing Optic

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 05b

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the sources phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high brightness light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion in the front-end optics cau ...

  7. Non-Fouling Polymeric Membrane for Algae Dewatering

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12c

    Currently there is great interest in the development of renewable fuels, such as biodiesel. Algae is one source of oil feedstock for biodiesel production that has been extensively investigated in recent years. Unlike vegetable oil crops, such as soybeans, algae grows very fast, can be grown on land of limited agricultural value, and can be grown in seawater or wastewater which are not suitable f ...

  8. Integrated Chemically Resistant Membrane Contactors and Ionic Liquid Sorbants for Carbon Dioxide Concentration

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 20g

    Fossil fuels currently supply more than 85% of the worlds energy needs and combustion of these fuels is the source of 80% of all anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and is considered to be a major contributor to global warming. There is considerable interest in capturing carbon dioxide at large sources, electric power plants, and sequestering the gas. H ...

  9. Unique Cimentum Cement for Cementing & Grout in Deep Boreholes for Radioactive Waste Disposal

    SBC: CIMENTUM            Topic: 33d

    Currently there are 104 commercial nuclear reactors operating in United States of America and approximately 63,000 metric tons of spent fuel has been produced by 2014. The United States Department of Energy, Office of Used Nuclear Fuel Disposition is currently investigating repository disposal system in deep borehole environment. Research and development challenges provide opportunities for contri ...

  10. CONTROL-

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CORROSION, CONTAMINATION, AND SCALE FORMATION CAUSED BY IMPURITIES IN WATER AND STEAM IN THE NUCLEAR POWER REACTOR CYCLES ARE MAJOR AND COSTLY PROBLEMS OF THE US UTILITY INDUSTRY. CORROSION CRACKING AND DENTING OF THE PRESSURIZED WATER REACTOR (PWR) CYCLE STEAM GENERATOR TUBES AND STRESS CORROSION OF THE BOILING WATER REACTOR (BWR) PIPING AND OF TURBINE DISCS ARE A FEW EXAMPLES OF THE CORROSION PR ...
