Climate Control Technology for Fossil EnergySBC: NANOSONIC INC Topic: 24f
Concern over CO2 emissions and global greenhouse effects has prompted new uses for reclaimed CO2 effluent from coal fired power plants. Similarly, volatile organic solvent emissions have prompted an initiative to identify cleaner solvents for high performance polymer processing, particularly when such processing requires large volumes of environmentally unfriendly, toxic organic solvents. Furthe ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of Energy
Bulk Thermoelectric MaterialsSBC: NANOSONIC INC Topic: 03b
This DOE SBIR/STTR program will result in the commercialization of a low-cost anostructured composite thermoelectric device. Such devices represent the next generation solution for an increasingly strained energy market by converting existing waste heat into electrical power. More waste heat is generated by the combination of industry and automobiles than the total contribution of all renewable en ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of Energy
Segmented and Blocky Proton Conducting Membranes for Solar Fuels Generator ApplicationsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of Energy
Segmented and Blocky Hydrocarbon Ion Pair Membranes for Fuel CellsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of Energy
Electrospray Deposition of Perovskite Solar CellsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of Energy
High-Fidelity Design Support Tool for Supercritical CO2 Oxy-CombustorsSBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH & FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: 22d
Direct fired supercritical CO2 (sCO2) cycles are gaining interest because of their potential as a zero emission power source that operates at high efficiency. The oxy-combustors in these systems operate at high supercritical pressures and current simulation tools to support design evaluation are deficient in this regime. Our proposed work here addresses this deficiency. The proposed program seeks ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of Energy
High Temperature (750 to 800 C) Silicon Carbide Receiver Assembly for High Efficiency Gen3 Molten Salt Concentrating Solar PowerSBC: CERAMIC TUBULAR PRODUCTS, LLC 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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of Energy
