  1. ALTERNATIVES TO CONVENTIONAL SOLVENT EXTRACTION OF BIOMASS

    SBC: Plant Resources Institute            Topic: N/A

    IN VIEW OF THCURRENT WORLD SITUATION WITH REGARD TO THE AVAILABILITY AND PRICE INSTABILITY OF FOREIGN OIL, THERE IS AN URGENT NATIONAL NEED TO DEVELOP RENEWABLE DOMESTIC ENERGYSOURCES SUCH AS HYDROCARBON-PRODUCING CROPS (BIOMASS). HOWEVER, EFFICIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE METHODS FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS EXTRACTION OF BOTH THE POLAR AND NON-POLAR CONSTITUTIENTS OF HYDROCARBON-PRODUCING CROPS NEED TO BE DE ...

  3. COBALT IS A STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT ELEMENT, AND MINIMIZING ITS USE IS A PROBLEM OF NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE.

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COBALT IS A STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT ELEMENT, AND MINIMIZING ITS USE IS A PROBLEM OF NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE. COBALT IS USED IN CEMENTED CARBIDES, PARTICULARLY TUNGSTEN CARBIDE-COBALT, WHICH ARE IN TURN USED FOR METAL CUTTING, MINING TOOLS, WIRE DRAWING DIES AND THE LIKE. IN THIS PROPOSAL, TRA SUGGESTS A NOVEL WAY TO IMPROVE THE PROPERTIES OF WC-CO ALLOYS, AND THUS IMPROVE THE USE LIFE OF SUCH ALLOYS ...

  4. THE COST OF DRILLING A GEOTHERMAL WELL IS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE COST OF DRILLING AN OIL AND GAS WELL AT COMPARABLE DEPTHS.

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF DRILLING A GEOTHERMAL WELL IS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE COST OF DRILLING AN OIL AND GAS WELL AT COMPARABLE DEPTHS. THE HIGHER COST IS DUE PRINCIPALLY TO TWOFACTORS: THE HARDNESS OF THE ROCK FORMATIONS BEING DRILLED AND THE HIGH TEMPERATURES ENCOUNTERED IN DRILLING. THESE TWO FACTORS REDUCE THE RATES OF PENETRATION, THEREBY IN- CREASING THE DRILLING COST. A KEY LIMITATION TO UNDERST ...

  6. PROCESSING AND CHARACTERIZATION OF SILICON CARBIDE-ALUMINUM OXYCARBIDE CERAMICS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    SILICON CARBIDE (SIC), ALUMINUM OXYCARBIDE (A12OC), AND ALUMINUM NITRIDE (AIN) ALL HAVE THE SAME 2H WURZITE CRYSTAL STRUCTURE AND FORM A COMPLETE SOLID SOLUTION. RESEARCH IN THE SIC-ALN SOLID SOLUTION SYSTEM HAS SHOWN THAT THE CREEP CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS MATERIAL ARE VERY DESIRABLE FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE APPLICATIONS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE LOW CREEP RATE IS THE RESULT OF GRAIN BOUNDARIES DEVOID ...

  8. (N,P) REACTIONS

    SBC: Merril Corporation of Utah, dba MSI Photogenics            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF INORGANIC SCINTILLATORS AS TARGET MATERIALS AND DETECTORS FOR (N,CX) OR (N,P) REACTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THESE MATERIALS WILL BE USED AS THE BASIS FOR A NEW CLASS OF NEUTRON SPECTROMETERS FOR THE 1-TO 14-MEV ENERGY RANGE. THESE NEW DETECTORS ARE INTENDED AS REPLACEMENTS FOR THE HE-3 PROPORTIONAL COUNTERS AND ORGANIC SCINTILLATORS CURRENTLY IN USE IN THIS ENERGY RANGE AS PLASMA FUSI ...

  9. FOR LOW-LEVEL WASTE DISPOSAL-

    SBC: Roger Associates Engineering C            Topic: N/A

    LOW-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WAST HAS TRADITIONALLY BEEN DISCARDED IN SHALLOW LAND TRENCHES. THERE IS A STRONG DEMAND FOR THE DEVELOPMENT, VALIDATION, AND IMPLE- MENTATION OF ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGIES TO SHALLOW LAND BURIAL, IN WHICH THE DEGREE OF PROTECTION OF THE PUBLIC IS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED FOR BOTH THE NEAR TERM AND THE LONG TERM (MANY HUNDREDS OF YEARS). THIS PROJECT WILL IDENTIFY A CONCEPTUAL D ...

  10. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOP- MENT WORK IS TO PRODUCE A DEVICE THAT WILL REMOVE, ON LINE, OIL FROM OIL/WATER EMULSIONS PRODUCED AS WASTE FROM HOT WATER OR STEAM PROCESSED IN TAR SANDS RECOVERY OPERATIONS.

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOP- MENT WORK IS TO PRODUCE A DEVICE THAT WILL REMOVE, ON LINE, OIL FROM OIL/WATER EMULSIONS PRODUCED AS WASTE FROM HOT WATER OR STEAM PROCESSED IN TAR SANDS RECOVERY OPERATIONS. A NEW WAY OF USING ULTRASOUND TO BREAK OIL/WATER EMULSIONS AND CONCENTRATE THE OIL DROPLETS THUS FORMED HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. TWO DIFFERENT METHODS, ONE ELECTRICAL AND THE O ...
