  1. The Energy and Cost-efficient E-waste Recovery Project for Rare-earths and Precious Metals

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    Idaho National Laboratory (INL), under funding from the Critical Materials Institute(CMI), has developed a US patented technology to reclaim valuable metals from waste electronic equipment. The Electrochemical Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (E-RECOV) method uses an electrochemical cell to efficiently recover the bulk of metals from discarded electronics, leading to more complete recycl ...

  3. Recovery of Glass Fiber Reinforcement from Retired Wind Turbine Blades for Recycled Composite Materials

    SBC: Carbon Rivers LLC            Topic: 15c

    By 2050 43,400,000 metric tons of cumulative wind turbine blade waste is expected to exist and continue growing at 2,000,000 metric tons/year globally. Even in the near term, wind turbine blade waste generation is expected to approach 1,000,000 metric tons/year by 2029. In short, the amount of wind turbine blade waste needing disposal is growing rapidly while the status quo option of landfilling, ...

  4. Interference Coatings for High Energy and Average Power Femtosecond-class Lasers in the 0.8-2um Wavelength Range

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 28e

    The problem/situation that is being addressed concerns the development of ultrafast coatings that will meet the specifications of the DoE solicitation: “broad-bandwidth, laser damage threshold of 0.5 J/cm2 (1 ps), engineered using a process that is scalable to large areas.” Development of interference coatings (ICs) with superior laser damage is strongly motivated by the needs to scale near in ...

  5. Key Components for the Implementation of High Repetition Rate Petawatt-class Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    Ultra-high power, ultrashort pulse lasers systems are the central tool driving many of the recent advances in high energy density plasma science. They enable the generation of high energy density relativistic plasmas, bright x-ray and gamma–ray bursts, energetics particle beams and neutrons, and drive applications such as shadowgraphy of inertial confinement fusion targets and fast ignition. How ...

  6. Infinitely Recyclable Bioplastics

    SBC: SusMer, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    Plastics are indispensable materials for modern life and the global economy, but current practices in the generation, use, and disposal of commodity plastics are largely unsustainable, causing severe worldwide plastics pollution and enormous energy and materials value loss in the economy. In particular, plastics are a material of choice in packaging applications, but they are currently designed fo ...

  7. Direct Recycling of Nickel-manganese-cobalt Cathode Materials from Lithium Batteries Using an All-in-one Rotary Kiln Reactor

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 12a

    The Department of Energy (DoE) has identified the important need to recycle, recover, and reuse the critical materials involved in lithium battery (LiB) technology. It is reported that in 2018 the world consumed over 50,000 tons of various lithium and transition metal salts to meet the production of LiBs needed for the worldwide energy storage needs. The market forecast for LiBs suggest that the d ...

  8. Development of Wakefield Accelerating Structures at Ultra-high Frequencies

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The development of a multi-TeV e+e- linear collider is a key priority set by the P5 panel, which established the long-term strategy of the U.S. HEP program. A Two-Beam Acceleration (TBA) is one of the most promising approaches for this facility due to its potential for achieving high efficiency and the ability to accelerate particles with positive and negative charges. However, there are still cha ...
