  1. Efficient Distributed Energy Generation System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicA

    Distributed energy offers a means of providing reliable, cost-effective electrical power to residents of rural communities. These requirements often cannot be met by current distribution methods due to limitation of remote central station power generation and transmission. With the migration of population from urban areas to rural areas and the increased power demands placed on electrical grids fr ...

  2. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Triglycerides to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    There is a finite amount of fossil fuels, which will only last a few more decades. Therefore, it is imperative to develop renewable sources of energy. An area that has recently attracted a lot of attention is the conversion of renewable oils to biodiesel, primarily through the methanolysis of triglycerides. The use of an immobilized lipase as a heterogeneous biocatalyst to transform oils into biod ...

  3. Novel Membrane Process to Utilize Dilute Methane Streams

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: TopicD

    Methane is the second largest contributor to global warming after carbon dioxide. As public awareness has increased in the last 2 decades, various technologies and process improvements have been developed to curb methane emissions in the United States. There is still a lack of economically viable technology, however, to utilize dilute methane streams containing 10 to 14 percent methane in which th ...

  4. Self-Healing Corrosion-Control Coatings: An Enabling Technology To Restore Aging Water Infrastructure and Permit Alternative Water Use for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problem Statement:  Most of the Nation’s water infrastructure is aging rapidly. Reports indicate that in the major water systems, approximately 30 percent of the pipes are 40 to 80 years old, and approximately 10 percent are more than 80 years old. The water pipes are subject to internal and external corrosion, resulting in pipe leaks and water main breaks. In addition to aging, the rap ...

  5. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicI

    Hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) is an effective and well studied decontaminant for vehicles and buildings contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials. Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 weight percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department of Transportation (DOT) as b ...

  6. Thermochemical Biofuels Production from Biomass Waste Materials

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting biomass waste into diesel fuel. The diesel made from biomass will be a direct substitute for ultra low-sulfur diesel (defined by ASTM D 975). The biomass waste will first be converted into pyrolysis oil and then upgraded to diesel. The process uses a new approach to upgrading pyrolysis bio oil and does not produce excessive by-pro ...

  7. Rapid Concentration of Viruses from Water

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC METHODS INC            Topic: TopicD

    In the United States, several high profile outbreaks of waterborne illness during the past 15 years have highlighted the need for a solution to drinking water contamination. Several recent studies suggest that approximately 20 percent of surface and ground source waters in the United States are contaminated with viruses. There are very few data on virus occurrence in drinking water, however, which ...

  8. Quantum Dot/Aptamer Real-Time Flow Sensor

    SBC: Smart Polymers Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Smart Polymers Research Corporation proposes to create a fluorescence-based fully automated flow sensor for real-time environmental detection of biothreat pathogens in water or in the air. The sensor will be utilizing pathogen-specific aptamers chemically modified with highly fluorescent quantum dots. The detection will be performed in the flow mode and provide results in real time. Based on the f ...

  9. Value-Added Use of Milled Mixed-Color Waste Glass as a Supplementary Cementitious Material in Environmentally Friendly and Energy-Efficient Concrete Building Construction

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Concrete, a primary building construction material, is the world’s most consumed man-made material. About 500 million tons of concrete were consumed in the United States in 2005. Production of cement (the binder in concrete) is an energy-intensive process and it contributes about 5 percent to global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Production of each ton of cement results in the emission of 1 ...

  10. Wireless Instrumentation for Control of Greenhouse Gas Emissions by the Aluminum Industry; Measurement and Monitoring of Current Distribution in Aluminum Reduction Cells

    SBC: Wireless Industrial Technologies            Topic: TopicD

    There are 315 to 458 million metric tons of CO2 (or equivalents) emissions per year due to primary aluminum production, of which 21 to 31 million metric tons are estimated to be produced in the United States. In part, this is due to the enormous electrical energy consumption entailed:  548,350 gigawatt hours worldwide (more than the electricity consumed by the whole of Germany), and the energ ...
