Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Recycling Advanced Batteries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Steven E. Sloop, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will involve development of the technology to ""recycle"" batteries (making new batteries from exhausted batteries) and the potential for identifying the causes for premature battery failure. In the proposed research, battery grade… More

SBIR Phase II: Recycling Advanced Batteries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Steven E. Sloop, PhD
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop process conditions, recycled materials, and recycling of new battery technologies. Phase I demonstrated that the innovative recycling process can produce materials for new batteries from spent batteries. The Phase II… More

SBIR Phase I: Automated Disassembly

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Steven E. Sloop, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will introduce novel separation techniques to improve the efficiency and product quality in rechargeable lithium battery recycling. Producing high purity materials from scrap is difficult to achieve. Current separation practices rely on the… More

Advanced Battery Recycling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Steven E. Sloop, Dr. – 541-389-7897
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Advanced recycling of lithium-ion battery materials has potential to significantly reduce material costs. Current recycling technology is expensive and melts or dissolves batteries for valuable elements, leaving no potential for direct secondary material use for battery applications. These old… More

Advanced Battery Recycling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Steven Sloop, Dr. – 541-389-7897
Award Amount: $1,000,000.00
Abstract:
Advanced battery recycling has potential to significantly reduce end-of-life cost for large format batteries. Available technology melts or dissolves batteries to recover cobalt or nickel, destroying advanced materials with potential for manufacturing use. With little elemental value in… More
