Formulation and Estimation of the Tradeoff between Fuels and Preparedness Budgets using... - 0 views

  •  
    The objectives of this research are to use simulated data from three or more national parks to econometrically estimate a production function where fuels and preparedness budgets are used to improve the value of the landscape. The landscape value is improved through fuel treatments aimed at hazardous fuel reductions and ecosystem improvement. It is also improved by preparedness through loss mitigation of fire affected values and by introducing fire in areas that promote ecosystem health. This research will, for the first time, quantify how the two programs (fuels and preparedness) interact to mutually improve the value of the landscape and associated natural and human resources. The second objective is to locate current programs on the econometrically derived value-added surface and to also identify how to manage increasing or declining budgets.

Fossil Fuel Large-Scale Pilots - 0 views

  •  
    This FOA seeks applications for projects to design, construct, and operate large-scale pilots of transformational coal technologies aimed at enabling step change improvements in coal powered system performance, efficiency, and cost of electricity. The FOA will be carried out in three phases, with a down-select between phases. Phase I, Feasibility, will be aimed at supporting recipients' efforts to secure team commitments, including host sites and recipient cost share for Phase II, update the preliminary cost estimate and schedule for design, construction, and operation, and complete an environmental information volume. Projects selected for Phase II, Design, will complete a Front End Engineering Design study, secure construction-operation cost share funding, and complete the National Environmental Policy Act process. Finally, at least two projects will be selected for Phase III, Construction-Operation, which will support construction and operation of the large-scale pilot facilities. Any recipients proceeding to Phase III will be required to utilize domestic coal and/or domestic coal-derived fuels in the operation period. Applicants to Phase I who plan to primarily use other fuel sources during operations will be judged non-responsive. While only detailed Phase I applications are being solicited at this time, information relating to preliminary plans to carry out Phases II and III will be required to assess the potential viability of the overall project.

Collaborative Research on International and Domestic Spherical Tokamaks - 0 views

  •  
    The major investments made to upgrade the MAST-U and NSTX-U facilities were strongly motivated by an important observation identified in both machines, which showed that energy confinement in spherical tokamaks may scale more favorable than for conventional aspect ratio tokamaks as collisionality is reduced. If the present empirical scalings hold, then STs may provide a much more compact design path to future fusion reactors than conventional tokamaks. At present, the interplay between collisionality, turbulent transport, wall conditioning (e.g., lithium coatings, boronization) and/or density control at low aspect ratio represents the forefront of ST research. The complementary capabilities of the MAST-U and LTX-β facilities allow for this interplay to be explored. Late in the three year period of these proposals FY 2018 - FY2020 the MAST-U facility is slated to utilize strong cryopumping capabilities in its world class advanced divertor to control plasma density and hence collisionality. Alternatively, the neutral beam heated and fueled LTX-β will control density using lithium wall coatings, which dramatically reduces the flux of cold neutral atoms that are recycled back into the plasma after their initial expulsion. In addition to plasma performance, the compact geometry of MAST-U and its future enhanced auxiliary heating power will result in exhaust power reaching plasma facing components that is in excess of that expected in ITER. This coupled with MAST-U's unprecedentedly flexible divertor geometry, makes it a world leading facility for the study of power exhaust and plasma material interactions.

    Analytic investigations are studies that increase DTRA's knowledge or understanding of emerging WMD threats and how DTRA might anticipate and counter them. The WMD threat spectrum includes: nuclear, radiological, biological, chemical and high-yield explosive (HE) weapons (including improvised threats); their up-stream acquisition, RDT&E and production; their storage, deployment and final disposition; strategic and tactical delivery systems, command and control; and their weapon effects if used.

  •  
    This FOA seeks applications to facilitate offshore geologic storage of CO2 in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) by creating government-industry partnership(s) that are focused on assembling the knowledge base required for secure, long-term, large-scale CO2 storage, with or without enhanced hydrocarbon recovery. Successful partnership(s) will identify and address knowledge gaps, regulatory issues, infrastructure requirements, and technical challenges associated with offshore CO2 storage. It is anticipated that project(s) awarded under this FOA will incorporate the information obtained by several ongoing projects awarded under DE-FOA-0001246, "Offshore Storage Resource Assessment," and will build upon the practical knowledge and experience gained by the existing RCSPs and previous projects (mostly international collaborations) that are already storing CO2 in offshore geologic reservoirs.

    This FOA seeks applications on research to develop techniques, tools, and methodologies that improve detection and assessment of CO2 stored in the target reservoir. Research products developed under this FOA are expected to include monitoring tools and techniques, as well as validation of models and modeling techniques. Successful technologies developed under this FOA will decrease the operator's financial burden associated with long-term monitoring by providing them the capability to assess the position of the CO2 plume in the target reservoir with greater certainty throughout the life cycle of the project (i.e., active- and post-injection).

    A large amount of the research and development of post-combustion carbon capture technology focuses on three main technologies: adsorption, absorption and membranes. Each of these technologies have energy and techno-economic advantages and disadvantages. However, an optimal process may involve the integration of multiple technologies into a single, hybrid, transformative process that is more economical and energy efficient. The challenge of developing this type of process is the integration of rigorous process sub-models into a single framework, where hybrid designs can be evaluated and optimized. The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has significant expertise in the development of rigorous process models and modeling for the advancement and acceleration of the commercialization of carbon capture process systems. A large part of the effort is the Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI). The computational tools and multi-scale modeling techniques comprising the CCSI Toolset can be broadly applied for the development of a wide variety of technologies well beyond carbon capture including chemicals production, petroleum refining, natural gas processing and biofuel production.
