  1. 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 ...

  2. Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Food Waste and Remediation of Aqueous Byproducts


    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 ...

  4. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...

  5. An Energy Internet Platform for Transactive Energy and Demand Response Applications

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    For over a century, the structure of the electric utility business has been a supplier driven model with consumers receiving and paying for electricity without any participation in how the electricity is produced, transmitted, or consumed.However, advances in renewable energy technologies (e.g., PV panels), battery storage, smart devices, as well as financing models have given rise to prosumers - ...

  6. Next-Generation TechNology for the Extremely Efficient Storage, Distribution, and Processing of Nuclear Physics Data

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Millions of dollars are spent every year in generating the tons of data that are necessary for addressing nuclear physics grand challenge problems at DOE facilities. Due to inherent technical and financial limitations at the “last- mile” of the data delivery pipeline, only a small fraction of these expensive Peta bytes of data is available for immediate access by end-users at any given time. T ...

  7. Detection of Micron-Scale Flaws through Nonlinear Wave Mixing


    Storage of hydrogen is challenging due to high storage pressures and potential for hydrogen embrittlement.Pressure vessels are currently retired from service under conservative guidelines due to the inability to identify damage until damage is imminent.There exists a need for a system that can resolve micrometer-scale features and relate these to the damage state of pressure vessels for accurate l ...

  8. Complex Crystalloid Resuscitative Fluid

    SBC: GanD Inc            Topic: DHA172009

    Problem: Currently available resuscitation fluids have been shown to induce detrimental effects on trauma outcomes.Objective: The objective of this proposal is to use the data from the successful Phase 1 studies to guide the continued development and testing of the novel resuscitation fluid (GND-001), which has been designed to address the deficiencies of current resuscitation fluids.Proposed work ...

  9. CAD-Integrated Web-Based Building Performance Simulation Platform

    SBC: Ladybug Tools LLC            Topic: 09c

    Today’s building energy modeling practice is highly fractured between different simulation engines, Computer Aided Design (CAD) interfaces, and computing resources.While preferences for these fractured components vary between professions and individuals, one principle is unanimously agreed upon: a strong, flexible, and programmable connection between these three categories of software is needed ...

  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 ...
