 NoneGary Powell Individual Power Generation and Energy Production: Fossil/Nuclear I have designed a water-less, turbine-less nuclear electrical generating device, called the JAB system. It is a hybrid between the use of nuclear material and solar type of panels. The system has been granted a patent pending status. The research and guidance that is needed is beyond my expertise.

The JAB system needs to be researched. One of my goals is to partner with a company or set of individuals who can evaluate this design.

 Stephen Wesley TraskStephen Wesley Trask Individual Other Energy Technologies The Manhattan Project was a research and development undertaking during World War II that produced the first nuclear weapons. It was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada. From 1942 to 1946, the project was under the direction of Major General Leslie Groves of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer was the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory that designed the actual bombs. The Army component of the project was designated the Manhattan District; "Manhattan" gradually superseded the official codename, Development of Substitute Materials, for the entire project. Along the way, the project absorbed its earlier British counterpart, Tube Alloys. The Manhattan Project began modestly in 1939, but grew to employ more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US $2 billion (about $27 billion in 2016[1] dollars). Over 90% of the cost was for building factories and to produce fissile material, with less than 10% for development and production of the weapons. Research and production took place at more than 30 sites across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

Two types of atomic bombs were developed concurrently during the war: a relatively simple gun-type fission weapon and a more complex implosion-type nuclear weapon. The Thin Man gun-type design proved impractical to use with plutonium so a simpler gun-type called Little Boy was developed that used uranium-235, an isotope that makes up only 0.7 percent of natural uranium. Chemically identical to the most common isotope, uranium-238, and with almost the same mass, it proved difficult to separate the two. Three methods were employed for uranium enrichment: electromagnetic, gaseous and thermal. Most of this work was performed at the Clinton Engineer Works at Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

In parallel with the work on uranium was an effort to produce plutonium. After the feasibility of the world's first artificial nuclear reactor was demonstrated in Chicago at the Metallurgical Laboratory, it designed the X-10 Graphite Reactor at Oak Ridge and the production reactors in Hanford, Washington, in which uranium was irradiated and transmuted into plutonium. The plutonium was then chemically separated from the uranium. The Fat Man implosion-type weapon was developed in a concerted design and development effort by the Los Alamos Laboratory.

 Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)Andrew Sowder Non-Profit Other Energy Technologies The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is an independent non-profit center conducting public interest R&D to support safe, affordable, reliable, and environmentally responsible electric power generation. EPRI does so through collaboration and leveraging of resources to perform common need R&D that utilities cannot support individually. EPRI is an international organization that includes members and participants from 40 countries. In the nuclear sector, EPRI members comprise 100% of commercial nuclear operators in the United States while international membership and participants represent nearly 80% of the world’s nuclear operators. EPRI is active in all fields related to the production, transmission and delivery of electricity, as well as in many aspects of end-use such as efficiency and smart metering. EPRI therefore offers a unique point of access to the state-of-the-art in electric power research and global utility and industry perspectives.

EPRI has expertise spanning most of the areas identified in the ARPA-E RFI-0000031 Teaming Partner List and maintains active nuclear R&D programs in:
• Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE)
• Equipment Reliability
• Material Degradation
• Risk and Safety
• Chemistry and Radiation Safety
• Fuel Reliability
• Used Fuel and High Level Waste Management
• Long-Term Operations (for operating reactors)
• Advanced Nuclear Technology

The Advanced Nuclear Technology program supports new nuclear reactor engineering and construction, materials development and performance management, advanced manufacturing, and use of modern technology for operations. The program addresses large light water reactors, light water small modular reactors, and non-light water designs.

As part of the program, EPRI has established a strategic research focus on advanced nuclear energy systems to support and inform deployment-driven R&D; this focus includes activities to establish owner-operator requirements, integration of safety assessment into design, and economic analyses. The advanced nuclear focus also leverages EPRI’s leadership in advanced materials, manufacturing, and fabrication through projects on development, qualification and demonstration for additive manufacturing, large-scale power metallurgy/hot isostatic pressing, and electron beam welding for joining large components.

 Columbia Basin Consulting Group (CBCG)William J Stokes Small Business Other Energy Technologies CBCG was formed in 1998, however, our semior engineering staff has been engaged in the nuclear energy and advanced reactor programs since the 1960’s. Our technical expertise is advanced liquid metal, fast reactors with extensive experience in new concept development and commercialization. CBCG was active in the Global Nuclear Energy Patrnership as a member of one of the four major teams with the advanced burner reactor development assignment and, under a second contract, to assess the restart feasibility of the advanced sodium fast test reactor (FFTF) at Hanford. CBCG’s FFTF restart report is the prime reference today in DOE’s alternatives consideration for a fast neutron test reactor source.

CBCG has been a principal team partner for the development of the Traveling Wave Reactor, a sodium cooled fast reactor concept, and has been active domestically and internationally in teaming for the development of a heavy-metal cooled, Small Modular Reactor (SMR) concept as an evolutionary step in safety enhancement, cost reduction, and mission versitility for nuclear energy deployment. CBCG has been active with a GAIN teaming partner, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), succesfully winning competitive voucher solicitations in 2016 (first year of GAIN – 8 awards of 29 applicants) and again in 2017, CBCG was one of 14 awards.

CBCG contends that the heavy-metal, SMR is simplier and safer that its LWR counterparts. Because the liquid-meatal reactor operates at near-atmospheric pressure, the typical loss of coolant due to depressurization accidents do not apply to these concepts. The use of the heavy-metals eliminates the use of liquid sodium, a highly volitile material in the presence of moisture. The higher tempreatures afforded by the liquid-metal systems enhances mission application versitility and efficiency, reducing the cooling water requirements on a “per kw” basis. The fast-spectrum design has a higher energy density, thus more compact than a comperable LWR and can form the cornerstone of a closed fuel cycle for countries wishing to eliminate the nuclear waste disposal issue.

CBCG is seeking teaming and investment partners for an aggressive commercialization program of two design concepts, a 100MWe and 250MWe SMR plants.
