  3. SBIR Phase I: High-Salinity Produced Water Management by Recovering Solid Waste with Low Grade Thermal Energy

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES., LLC            Topic: ET

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this SBIR Phase I project is to develop a desalination system powered by solar energy. Water is used for lithium and rare metal mining, requiring energy-efficient water treatment to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. This type of water treatment in mineral recovery systems can yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Many lithium and rar ...

  5. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Tablecraft, A Next Generation Introductory STEM Platform

    SBC: Not Suspicious, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project is dedicated to creating a whole-classroom virtual reality (VR) experience for middle school students to be exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) topics interactively as a supplement to the existing curriculum. While immersed in their very own 3D virtual treehouse lab, students will be able to join other student labs and collaboratively explore a va ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Dissimilar Metal Bonding of Corrosion-Resistant Cladding to Structural Materials in Next-Generation Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 13a

    As the United States aging fleet of nuclear reactors approach the end other their lifetimes, a new generation of nuclear reactors (Generation IV) are being developed to ensure national energy security without emissions or pollutants as a byproduct. However, there are many technological hurdles associated with the extreme corrosive environments required by molten salt reactor designs. This presents ...

  10. 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 ...
