  1. A High Efficiency Integrated Syngas Purification and Hydrogen Separation and Storage System

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: 27d

    A promising approach to the clean use of abundant U.S. coal resources is the production of hydrogen through coal gasification. The synthesis gas resulting from coal gasification is required to undergo several processes in order to produce hydrogen of sufficient purity for fuel cells or hydrogen-fueled turbines. Therefore, systems that combine purification and separation of syngas to produce high ...

  2. A Novel Low Cost, High Efficiency, Algal Biomass Harvest and Dewatering Technology for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Governments and industry have recently placed significant emphasis on finding affordable renewable fuels to supplement and/or replace fossil fuel use. Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a highly attractive option for affordable renewable fuel. This project will develop a low cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering process. In Phase I, a small scale syst ...

  3. Hydroelectric Energy from Wastewater

    SBC: ADVANCED ENERGY CONVERSION, LLC            Topic: 19c

    There are a large number of opportunities for extracting energy from flowing streams of water. Many of these streams are manmade. As an example, more than 15,000 publicly owned wastewater treatment facilities operate in the United States. These facilities process in excess of 34,000 million gallons of water per day (34,000 MGD). This project will develop technology for harvesting energy in was ...

  4. Prototype 800MHz Crab Cavity Development

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 39g

    Regardless of the final choice of magnet technology and optics layout, most collider schemes will have a finite crossing angle with which bunches collide, resulting in a reduction in luminosity. It is accepted in the community that crab cavities can be developed to reduce this relative angle and increase the luminosity. Therefore, this project will develop a prototype 800 MHz crab cavity, fabric ...

  5. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system developed by Cornell in the mid-1990¿s for the CESR-B machine. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design limits. Required increases in inp ...

  6. Advanced High-Brightness Electron Source

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03a

    High-repetition-rate (>1 MHz), high-bunch-charge (up to 1 nC) electron sources will be critical components of next generation light sources, which will be needed to upgrade DOE user facilities. These electron sources must possess high gradients at the cathode surface to provide for low emittance electron bunches. In order to achieve the desired performance levels (= 1 mmmrad at appropriate bunch ...

  7. High Power Fundamental Power Coupler for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Future third generation light sources, such as the NSLS-II synchrotron light source proposed for Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), push the operating current and subsequent beam power to levels beyond the capabilities of single CESR-B/KEKB cavities. The proposed light source requires 500mA and 1000kW of radiated beam power that must be provided through the power couplers/windows. The develop ...

  8. Development of Alternative Reduced-Cost Helium Vessels for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The International Linear Collider (ILC) represents the next great undertaking for the worldwide high energy physics community. In addition to technical challenges posed by the project, the political realities demand a reduction in the cost of the components of this massive facility. The helium vessels that enclose each of the 16,000 superconducting cavities have been identified as a cost driver ...

  9. Improved Joints Based on 3D Fiber Architecture Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Wind blades are a significant part of the installation and operating costs of wind turbines used for electricity generation. In the manufacture of wind blades, several composite elements must be joined; the joints between these elements present one of the most difficult aspects of their construction. Current practices are hand-labor intensive and result in thick bond lines. In turn, these pract ...

  10. Advanced Heat Exchanger bsed on 3D Woven Metal Wires

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: 11c

    A heat exchanger must balance an ability to transfer heat to a fluid with the amount of power required to move the fluid through the heat exchanger. For most systems, heat transfer is largely driven by the material¿s thermal conductivity and the structure¿s surface-area-to-volume ratio. Increasing the latter factor increases the heat exchanger¿s capacity or reduces the exchanger¿s size. A ...
