  1. SHORT FIBER PREFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE PART PRODUCTION

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: 13f

    The STTR effort will evaluate an aligned, short carbon fiber (CF) material called Tailorable Universal Feedstock for Forming (TuFF) for forming of complex geometry preforms, assess process and material challenges and demonstrate mechanical properties using HP-RTM and/or Wet Compression Molding. TuFF material has demonstrated highly aligned, high fiber volume fraction (~50-60%) components with full ...

  2. High Temperature (750 to 800 C) Silicon Carbide Receiver Assembly for High Efficiency Gen3 Molten Salt Concentrating Solar Power

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 12f

    In 2011, the US Department of Energy (DOE) launched the SunShot Initiative with the goal of making solar electricity cost-competitive with conventional power generation by 2020. Since 2011, research funded by the DOE has resulted in substantial progress toward meeting the aggressive SunShot performance and cost targets, but significant technical hurdles remain. In particular, the Gen3 CSP Roadmap ...

  3. Low-temperature chemical looping reforming catalysts for small-footprint GTL

    SBC: Catalytic and Redox Solutions, LLC            Topic: 22a

    Methane from U.S. shale deposits has significantly increased the usable amount of this domestic energy resource. Meanwhile, flaring of natural gas, which is commonly practiced in shale-oil production, exceeded 6 billion cubic meters in the United State annually. This leads to a waste of valuable energy resources and significant emissions of greenhouse gas. As such, small-footprint technologies tha ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Compact, High-Efficiency Air Handling Unit (CHE-AHU) for Residential HVAC Systems

    SBC: UPSTATE PARTS & SUPPLY INC            Topic: 09a

    AHUs for residential HVAC systems typically use low-efficiency blower fans (evaporator side) and simple axial fans (condenser side), and the fan and the surrounding High Resistance Mediums (heat exchanger. filter, burner, etc.) are treated as stand-alone components during design optimization. With the recent introduction of high speed electronically commuted motors (high- speed ECM), it is now pos ...

  6. Ultrafast Optics with Large Damage Threshold

    SBC: Lenzner Research LLC            Topic: 28e

    The goal is to develop design software for optical coatings that includes accurate simulations of the physics behind laser-induced damage of these coatings. Special emphasis is on coatings for femtosecond-class lasers exhibiting high peak power as well as high average power. The proposed project is a combination of modeling, design, fabrication and test of novel mirrors for ultrashort laser pulses ...

  7. Segmented and Blocky Hydrocarbon Ion Pair Membranes for Fuel Cells

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The DOE has identified a need for thin and durable proton conducting membranes that offer enhanced energy efficiency to power zero emission vehicles. Specifically, a cost effective hydrocarbon-based alternative to expensive commercial perfluorosulfonic acid ionomers are sought. Current hydrocarbon membranes do not meet the performance or durability needed in the conditions for transportation fuel ...

  8. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  9. Plasma-Catalysis of CO2 and CH4 to Produce High Value Chemicals

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The goal of this work is to develop a new technology that can produce acetic acid in a single-step and do so at reduced temperature and ambient pressure. Current techniques to synthesize acetic acid require methanol and carbon dioxide, both of which are largely made from syngas produced from dry reforming of methane. However, high temperatures are needed to produce the syngas (of which a component ...

  10. Computational Materials Design of Functionally Graded Structures for Enhanced Cooling of Plasma Facing Components via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 23a

    Plasma facing components (PFCs) in future fusion power plants will be subjected to a concentrated flux of plasma particles resulting in very high surface erosion and heat loads. The material most suitable to withstand these extreme loading conditions is tungsten (W) due to its excellent thermal stability and having the highest melting point of the metals. The drawback of tungsten is its brittlenes ...
