  1. Electrolytic Process to Produce Sodium Hypochlorite Using NaSICON Ceramic Membranes

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 19d

    79513S Sodium hypochlorite is an industrial chemical that is produced with technologies that rely on organic membranes and undivided cell methods, which have performance limitations from fouling and limited selecivity. This project will develop an innovative and energy efficient, low temperature, cost-effective, and environmental friendly electrochemical process that uses a sodium-ion-conducting ...

  2. High Volume Utilization of Fly Ash Containing Mercury-Impregnated Activated Carbon

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 11

    79234S In January of 2004, the EPA published draft regulations for the control of mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants, and one of the most promising technologies for controlling mercury involves the treament of flue gas with activated carbon. As a consequence, the fly ash collected from power plants contains high concentrations of mercury-impregnated activated carbon, which would make ...

  3. Robust Microsenors for Automobile Exhaust Monitoring and Control

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 31b

    79252 As environmental regulations become increasingly stringent, there is mounting pressure on automobile manufacturers to substantially lower unburnt hydrocarbon emissions. This will require monitoring the hydrocarbon content in the exhaust with more accuracy than currently possible using the two oxygen sensor system. This requirement is especially important during start-up conditions, which a ...

  4. Composite, High-Temperature Seals for Gas Separation Membrane Devices

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 44c

    76066S Ceramic membranes with ion-specific conducting properties can provide gases with purity unmatched by other gas separation methods. However, in order to realize the full potential of these membrane devices, high temperature seal materials are required to isolate the ultrahigh purity product gas from the inlet gas mixture. This project will develop a composite seal material that combines t ...

  5. Carbon Nanofiber [F-18] Fluoride Ion Concentration for High Speed Biomarker Production

    SBC: NANOTEK, LLC            Topic: 04b

    78954 The DOE has expressed a need for developing tools that can improve and simplify production of radiolabeled compounds. Conventional synthesis of PET radiotracers is hampered by the complex and sensitive synthesis processes that often produce low yields, consume costly precursors, and can take hours to complete. If fluoride ion could be concentrated into microliter volumes of dry solvent qui ...

  6. Rapid Microfluidic Production of Multiple PET Biomarkers

    SBC: NANOTEK, LLC            Topic: 04

    78966S The DOE has expressed a need for novel probes for biomedical applications as well as radio tracers for functional molecular imaging. Synthesis of novel probes and radiotracers, particularly new PET biomarkers, is difficult and costly and is limiting the utility of PET imaging technology. There is a need for rapid production of multiple and novel biomakers with PET radiolabels from a sing ...

  7. Raman Scattering Sensor for Control of the Acid Alkylation Acid Process in Gasoline Production

    SBC: PROCESS INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: 31d

    78230S In the production of gasoline, refineries currently monitor acid strength via titration techniques once or twice per shift, which results in running higher-than-optimal acid concentrations to ensure that the process proceeds uninterrupted. This project will develop a reliable in situ method using Raman scattering technology to continually monitor the acid concentration. The approach will ...

  8. Digital Signal Processing Electonics for Silicon Strip Detectors

    SBC: RIS CORP.            Topic: 44a

    78109 Large-area, position-sensitive silicon strip detector arrays are being developed for nuclear physics research. In this application, the traditional electronic processing of the detector signals, along with mixed analog and digital function blocks, largely determines the complexity and cost of such systems. Next generation electronics systems are being constructed using pipelined digital pr ...

  9. Development of a Fourier-Transform Infrared Gas Analyzer to Measure Carbon Isotopes of CO2.

    SBC: Campbell Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    79737B Only half of the estimated carbon delivered to the atmosphere by human activities in the 1990s remains there. The "missing" carbon was absorbed by terrestrial ecosystems and oceans, thus mitigating human perturbations to the carbon cycle. Carbon isotopes play a central role in understanding this terrestrial carbon sink at a variety of scales, but instrumentation to directly measure carbon ...
