  1. Development of Tunable, Precision Permanent Magnet Phase Shifter for X-Ray FEL

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: 10a

    In an x-ray free-electron lasers (XFEL), a high quality relativistic electron beam from a linear accelerator traverses an array of undulator magnets to generate a high power x-ray beam by allowing the FEL to reach saturation. In many XFELs, phase shifters haven’t been commonly used or included in their designs. The importance of the phase shifter was recognized only recently. A phase shifter can ...

  2. Inorganic Membrane-based Reactive Separation and Reactant Recycle for Direct Synthesis of Dimethyl Carbonate

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is a promising green chemical due to its simplicity, versatility, low toxicity, high polarity, low corrosivity, and biodegradability. Further, “direct synthesis” of DMC using CO2 as a reactant offers a pathway forward to effective greenhouse gas reutilization. DMC is one of the most promising organic carbonates in terms of the range of applications.The US EPA has exemp ...

  3. Low cost, High speed Multi-probe Monitoring System for Subsurface Gases

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 24b

    Determination of soil gas concentrations and 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 respond to redox c ...

  4. Plasma-Assisted Catalysis For CO2 Utilization

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Dry methane reforming consumes two greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide and methane) and coverts them to syngas that can be used to produce liquid fuels and other chemicals. Using catalysts, this reaction occurs at temperatures of 600-900oC, yet conversion has been limited and carbon-forming reactions that deactivate catalysts are often a problem. In this Phase I study, we propose an innovative approa ...

  5. High-Fidelity Design Support Tool for Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustors

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 22d

    Direct fired supercritical CO2 (sCO2) cycles are gaining interest because of their potential as a zero emission power source that operates at high efficiency. The oxy-combustors in these systems operate at high supercritical pressures and current simulation tools to support design evaluation are deficient in this regime. Our proposed work here addresses this deficiency. The proposed program seeks ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Supercritical Treatment of Fracking Water

    SBC: Prayog Labs LLC            Topic: 20a

    With the continuous growth of hydraulic fracking, the volume of fracking wastewater that needs to be treated prior to disposal is also growing and is a major challenge and concern for society. The improper treatment of wastewater prior to disposal has multiple consequences to the environment, including contamination to the soil and drinking water source.The recycling and reuse of water and chemica ...

  10. Integrated Sorbent-based Lithium, Power, and Water Recovery from Geothermal Brines

    SBC: STRATOFIRE LC            Topic: 17a

    Geothermal brines used in power generation can be a potential source of critical elements, such as lithium. However, current technological approaches cannot achieve high selectivity of target elements available in trace concentrations from a complex geothermal brine matrix with high concentration of non-desirable mineral content. StratoFire and Southern Research propose to develop and optimize an ...
