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. Crack Mitigation for Dry Storage Canisters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 31a

    Welded stainless steel canisters that contain spent nuclear fuel (SNF) at near-marine sites have been found with salts on their outer surface that can produce an aggressive chemical environment that could lead to pitting, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), and potential release of radioactive materials. Welds that are most susceptible to SCC are difficult to reach because they are located inside the ...

  4. Manufacture of Metallic Fuel Pins With Advanced Geometries

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 30b

    New types of nuclear power plants are under development that will enable nuclear power to provide a large-scale source of environmentally benign power generation while improving safety and minimizing proliferation risks. For best performance, these reactors will require large numbers of uranium alloy fuel pins made with annular geometries that reduce fuel temperature and swelling compared to solid ...

  5. Electrostatic Precipitation System for Radionuclide Particle Collection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 04a

    To monitor for compliance with nonproliferation treaties such as the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, approximately 80 ground stations around the world collect radionuclide aerosols from the atmosphere and measure the isotopic composition to detect, locate, and characterize nuclear events. These stations process enormous volumes of air to collect minute amounts of the radioactive isotopes ne ...

  6. Topic 16a- Low-Cost Desalination System Driven by Hydrokinetic Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 16a

    Ocean and tidal currents contain a huge amount of power that is currently untapped. This power could be used very efficiently to desalinate water for water-poor regions located near coastlines. A major obstacle is the high cost of manufacturing and deployment of ocean systems. We propose an innovative new technology that can dramatically reduce the manufacturing and deployment costs of hydrokineti ...

  7. Advanced Analysis of Geothermal Heat Pump System Data

    SBC: Ground Energy Support LLC            Topic: 07a

    Geothermal heat pumps utilize heat pump technology to access the ubiquitous and plentiful renewable thermal energy in the shallow subsurface. While there are tremendous potential economic and environmental benefits in the development of this resource, high up‐front installation costs and lack of confidence in the performance of geothermal heat pump systems are significant market barriers to the ...

  9. Continuous Casting of Metallic Nuclear Fuel Pins

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 19b

    Future nuclear power plant designs call for large numbers of metallic fuel pins made from uranium alloys. Existing methods for casting these pins are very slow and costly. This project aims to enable largescale production of metallic nuclear fuel by developing an innovative continuous casting process. We are developing a continuous casting method that uses innovative process equipment, instrumenta ...

  10. Power Dense Converter Electronics for Grid Tie Energy Storage Containers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 10a

    Increased electricity demand amid infrastructure development restrictions continues to foster innovation for distributed generation. Whereas pumped hydro installations are fixed locations, battery, thermal, compressed air, and flywheel storage can be mobile and competitive if they are cost effective, reliable, and safe, and have regulatory approvals and industry acceptance. Improvements to effici ...
