  1. Nanocomposite Enabled High Energy Density Capacitors for Pulsed Power Applications REVISED

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 32

    High-energy-density capacitors are needed in a number of applications for high energy physics research, including solid state pulsed power systems. A capacitor¿s energy storage density can be increased by either increasing the dielectric constant or the electric field. Since the electric field is limited by the dielectric strength of materials, increases in the dielectric constant are sought. ...

  2. High Power Density Li-Ion Batteries with Good Low Temperature Performance

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 19

    Conventional and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) require economical and safe rechargeable Li-ion batteries that have high power, good cyclability, long calendar life, and good low temperature performance. Plug-in HEV batteries also need to have high energy density. Currently available Li-ion batteries significantly degrade at sub-zero temperatures and do not meet the requirements. This ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Self-healing Corrosion Protection Coatings to Enable Use of Magnesium in Automobiles

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I aims to enable the widespread use of magnesium alloys in automobiles by developing a self-healing, chromate-free conversion coating for magnesium alloy components. The weight reduction associated with the use of magnesium will make automobiles more fuel-efficient and reduce CO2 emissions. A major impediment to the use of magnesium in automotiv ...

  4. A New Sorbent for Removal of Mercury from Flue Gas: A Lower Cost Alternative to Activated Carbon-REVISED

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21

    The cost of reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants is an impediment to the implementation of new mercury emission standards, particularly in older power plants. The use of a sorbent to capture mercury from the flue gas is considered to be the most effective approach, but issues pertaining to secondary emissions and the degradation of the fly-ash byproduct (which results from entr ...

  5. Membranes for Solid State Lithium Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 06a

    Low-cost, safe, large voltage (i.e., hundreds of volts), and high-energy lithium-ion batteries with long calendar and operational lives are required for a variety of electric utility applications to address issues associated with power quality and transmission congestion. Such large-format batteries also are needed for vehicle applications (e.g., electric and hybrid electric vehicles). For both ap ...

  6. Enhancing the Heat Exchanger Performance Through the Use of High Temperature Resistant Superhydrophobic Nanocomposite Coatings

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 07d

    Steam-to-liquid heat exchangers are used extensively in industrial applications, including chemical and food processing and electric power generation. In present systems, the formation of a condensate film of water on the surface of a heat exchanger tube reduces the heat transfer coefficient. This effect occurs because the thermal conductivity of the condensed water is only a fraction of that of t ...

  7. High Performance Fluoroelastomer Nanocomposite Seals For Geothermal Submersible Pumps

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21c

    Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESPs) for use in geothermal energy production are subjected to harsh downhole environments. These environments include hot brine (which contains calcium and chloride ions, corrosive hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide, and silica and entrained sand) at temperatures in the range of 300 to 450 °F. Fluoroelastomeric materials are frequently used as seals in these applic ...

  8. Effective Removal of Selenate from FGD Waste Streams Through the use of Novel Nanocomposite Particles

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 56b

    In coal-fired power plants, the waste streams from flue gas desulfurization (FGD) have high levels of mercury, arsenic, and selenium; therefore, these streams need to be treated prior to discharge. Moreover, the use of non-traditional waters for FGD, combined with more stringent regulations on emissions from power plants, is increasing the concentration of these metals in FGD wastewater. However, ...

  9. Implementing Nanoparticle Containing Fluids in Petroleum Refineries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 23c

    Small refineries are in constant need of technologies to enhance their energy efficiency and reduce operating costs. These refineries make extensive use of water-based cooling towers downstream from the cracking/refining/reactor processes, in order to reduce temperatures prior to finished product storage. A typical refinery has been estimated to produce total waste heat of 127,000 Btu per barrel, ...

  10. Nanotechnology-Based Self-Healing Coating System to Enable Extensive Use of Magnesium Alloys in Automotives

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 25a

    The fuel efficiency of automobiles can be enhanced by using lightweight materials such as magnesium alloys. However, unlike steel, magnesium alloys corrode rapidly. Although magnesium alloys can be protected against corrosion by chromate-based coatings, chromates are being phased out due to toxicity and environmental concerns. Therefore, there is an immediate need to develop non-chromate corrosion ...
