Abstract:

In order to commercialize high-performance nanomaterials-enabled energy devices such as batteries, super-capacitors, photovoltaics, catalysts and lasers, there is a dire need for a low-cost, energy-efficient nanomaterials manufacturing process with a low-carbon footprint. Development of nanomaterials production technologies that meet this need, will contribute to the resurgence of the US manufacturing sector while simultaneously reducing green house gas emissions at the manufacturing and applications levels. nGimat proposes to boost its production volumes of high-performance nanopowders for energy applications by scaling-up its versatile, cost-effective and environmentally friendly NanoSpray Combustion process. The process will utilize low-cost precursors and bio-derivable solvents in a simple self-sustaining combustion based process to achieve these objectives. In Phase I, the precursor-delivery, combustion synthesis and powder collection sub-systems of the process were scaled-up to deliver >11kg/day quantities of representative nanopowders, a >10X improvement over nGimat
