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. In Situ Structural Repair and Protection of LWR Components Using Cold Spray

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 10c

    A major problem facing the existing U.S. fleet of Light Water Reactor facilities is stress corrosion cracking of austenitic nickel and iron alloys, which comprise the bulk of wetted components in LWR facilities; up to 70% of wetted non-fuel areas in a typical facility, making this problem particularly widespread and especially prevalent with extended service life. Cold spray technology offers an e ...

  2. Supersonic Particle Deposition for the Application of a Bimetallic Corrosion Resistant Layer in Nuclear Components

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 13a

    The United States depends on its fleet of nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity- With the increased and growing need of electricity, additional nuclear facilities can provide the solution Generation IV Reactors, such as Advanced Small Modular Reactors (SMR’s) are an upgraded means to nuclear thermal energy production- These SMR’s can provide up to 300 megawatt ...

  3. In Situ Stress Corrosion Crack Repair and Prevention for Nuclear Waste Canisters

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 30b

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much uncertainty facing long term, geologic storage facilities, long duration on-site waste storage is being considered. One potential problem facing the existing fleet of nuclear waste storage canisters is chlorine assisted stress corrosion cracking (CISCC) of austenitic stainless steel. ...

  4. In Situ Structural Repair and Protection of LWR Components Using Cold Spray

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 10c

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of light water nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much of the facilities reaching the end of their initial 40-year license, and with electricity demand expected to grow, the U.S. needs methods to extend the lifetime of these facilities for up to 60 years. Stress corrosion crack-susceptible nickel alloys are used in approximat ...

  5. Rock Melt Borehole Sealing System

    SBC: Re/Spec Inc.            Topic: 21a

    Deep geological disposal is a promising and widely accepted method for long-term disposal of nuclear waste, and the option of deep borehole disposal is considered an inherently safe method. The feasibility of the deep borehole option relies upon designing and constructing an effective seal within the borehole that ensures the waste package does not communicate through the borehole itself with th ...

  6. Corrosion-Resistant Crystalline-Oxide Coatings on Steel Substrates by An Immersion Anodizing Process

    SBC: NanoCoatings, Inc.            Topic: 12b

    Engineered biomass combustors offer significant reductions in harmful emissions, reduced cooking-times and fuel usage. However, steel components used in the combustors suffer from corrosion degradation due to the aggressive halide salts and water vapor released during biomass fuel combustion. The Department of Energy desires the development of low-cost survivable components that extend the lifet ...

  7. Rock Melt Borehole Sealing System

    SBC: Re/Spec Inc.            Topic: 21a

    Deep geological disposal is a promising and widely accepted method for long- term disposal of nuclear waste and the option of deep borehole disposal is considered an inherently safe method. The feasibility of the deep borehole option relies upon the design and construction of an effective seal within the borehole that ensures the waste package does not communicate for thousands of years with the s ...

  8. PV Module. Title: Optimal Multijunction Solar Cells for CPV under Realistic Conditions.

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: 05a

    The proposed DoE STTR project will provide a pathway for terrestrial CPV (500 to 700 Suns) multi- junction solar cells that will maintain extremely high efficiencies at realistic operating temperatures. The thrust of the proposed project will adapt an integration approach from MEMS to III-V materials grown lattice-matched to gallium arsenide substrates. The efficiency advantages were found to be s ...
