The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ensure 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 ...

  2. Resonant Cavity Light Emitting Diodes for Infrared Gas Spectroscopy

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 19a

    The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and intrinsic properties. Robust field testing to validate ...

  3. High Sensitive Methane Sensor for Real-time Measurements of Methane Isotopes

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 19a

    Determination of isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which have naturally occurring stable isotope forms ...

  5. Development of a Sequence Capture Approach for Monitoring in situ Nitrogen Cycling Potential in Microbial Communities

    SBC: Glomics, Inc            Topic: 19b

    Microorganisms play key roles in environmental functioning and understanding their responses to environmental perturbation is critical in developing accurate climate change models, a need highlighted by the DOE. However, their phylogenetic and functional diversity, abundance in the environment, and lack of cultured status make them challenging to study. While there are several molecular methods av ...

  6. Gas Imaging and Monitoring Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    Amethyst Research, in collaboration with InView, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is developing an infrared imaging system to detect and quantify greenhouse gas emissions, to better understand their life cycle and role in global earth system dynamics.

  7. Development of a Concentrated Winding PM Alternator for a Small Wind Turbine

    SBC: BERGEY WINDPOWER COMPANY, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Small wind turbines in the 5 – 25 kW range for rural residences, farms and small businesses have a large market potential due to the millions of suitable sites in the U.S. and overseas. But industry sales have declined in recent years as the costs of photovoltaics have dropped and state incentive programs have reduced. This is unfortunate because most of the equipment for solar power is importe ...

  8. Inexpensive High Sensitivity CO2 Isotopologue Sensor

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 13a

    Next generation advances in subsurface technologies will enable access to large amounts of clean, renewable geothermal energy, as well as safer development of domestic natural gas supplies. The subsurface also provides hundreds of years of safe storage capacity for carbon dioxide (CO2) and opportunities for environmentally responsible management and disposal of hazardous materials and other energy ...

  9. Gas Imaging and Monitoring Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    Significant improvements in the technology to monitor greenhouse gases are required. In particular there is need to be able to simultaneously monitor both small (~m) and large area sites (~ 100km) and in rugged/inaccessible terrain. For example, sensitive, accurate, and real-time monitoring of hydrobiogeochemical processes are needed in subsurface environments, including soils, the rhizosphere, se ...

  10. Development of a New Analytical Technology in Support of Oil and Natural Gas Extraction

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 21c

    Over the past decade, advances in shale characterization and stimulation technology have opened Hydrocarbon bearing shale to exploitation. The success of all of these plays can depend on the proper characterization of the shale reservoir. To determine if favorable composition and structure are present, it is currently necessary to conduct a number of different analyses that are time consuming and ...
