  1. Segmented and Blocky Proton Conducting Membranes for Solar Fuels Generator Applications

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC            Topic: 19b

    The Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences has identified a need for new proton conducting membranes for solar fuel generator applications. Specifically, development of block copolymers with good proton conductivity at ambient temperatures and low gas diffusion and ionic transports are needed. There are currently no commercially available proton conducting membranes which possess ...

  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. 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 ...

  4. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...

  5. A Cold Cycle 3He/4He Dilution Refirgerator for milliKelvin cooling with an Intermediate Heat Sink at 1.4 Kelvin

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 32c

    As the size of quantum information systems (QIS) increases with technology development, the required cooling power at temperatures below 100mK will increase beyond that which currently available with commercially available milliKelvin cooler technologies. Additionally, as the size of QIS increases the number of electrical signal leads that require heat sinking in the 1K-temperature range will also ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Electrospray Deposition of Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC            Topic: 16a

    Perovskite-sensitized solar cells have demonstrated high conversion efficiencies however the stability of device is limited compared to common PV technologies. Moisture, UV irradiation, and high temperature triggered degradation limit their commercial viability; therefore, improved cell durability is necessary for perovskite solar cell market entry. In addition, the scale-up and optimization of th ...
