  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. Developing Aggregated Datasets to Standardize the Collateral Valuation Process Utilizing an Economic Pricing Model.

    SBC: Energy Sense Finance            Topic: 06b

    Due to the difficulty in developing credible opinions of value for solar assets, there is a disconnect between traditional mortgage lending which uses established appraisal methodologies and current solar lending efforts which are limited in their ability to utilize those same tried and true appraisal methodologies. This disconnect restricts the amount of capital available for the solar market eve ...

  7. Development of a Novel Infrared Detector for Improved CO2 Subsurface Sequestration Monitoring

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 15a

    Low cost and accurate monitoring of sequestered gases such as CO2 is critical to insure that these gases are not reentering the atmosphere. Management requires, in part, improved atmospheric and ground monitoring of these greenhouse gases through sensors capable of measuring the subsurface flux, concentration and the carbon isotopologues of CO2 with high accuracy. These Monitoring, Verification an ...

  9. High Ion-Accessible Surface Area CNT-Ultracapacitors for Groundwater Desalination

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 02c

    Freshwater is a vital resource for human survival as well as a key component of a wide range of industrial and agricultural needs. However, only 0.65% of the worlds water resources are available as freshwater, and the demand on the worlds water reserves continues to increase, with the demand beginning to outpace the supply in many areas. A water-energy nexus is being reached that requires low-cost ...

  10. High Performance Substrate Embedded Microgrids for High Efficiency, Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: Electroninks Incorporated            Topic: 09b

    Indium tin oxide (ITO) films are currently the most widely used transparent conductor in optoelectronic applications. However, ITO suffers from several major technological and economic limitations for large area applications such as inadequate performance, high cost, and brittleness. The primary objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I/Phase II project is to develop the ...
