  1. 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, ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Value of Information and Data Management Platform Promoting Modern Data Analysis Utilization

    SBC: INFISYS, INC.            Topic: 13b

    The immense growth in weather and river sensor data availability along with increases in computational power and algorithmic sophistication have enabled the widespread application of physical, machine learning, and artificial intelligence algorithms to river forecasting. The forecasts produced by widely varying model approaches are inherently limited in different ways, such as by the number and qu ...

  6. Overpass/Underpass coil design for high field dipoles

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 33b

    We propose to develop and demonstrate the overpass/underpass (also called cloverleaf) end design for high field block coil dipole magnets made with Nb3Sn Rutherford cable. Block coil dipole designs are appealing for their simplicity in the body of a magnet, but less so in the ends of certain blocks that must be lifted to clear the beam tube. This lifting — which typically is in the hard directio ...

  7. Atomically Precise Scanning Probe Based Analysis of Activated Dopants for 2D Micro Electronics

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 06a

    Atomically precise placement of dopants in 2D planes inside semiconductor crystals has shown enormous potential for creating valuable structures such as analog quantum simulations and devices such as qubits for quantum computers ultra-high performance analog transistors, and potentially quantum metamaterials with designer quantum properties. These applications will have an enormous impact on energ ...

  8. Novel High Peak- and Average-power Ultrafast Lasers Using Parametric Beam Combination of Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 32e

    This project seeks to demonstrate a new approach for implementing tunable mid-infrared (IR) ultrafast lasers at high peak-and average powers, to specifically address the need outlined in Topic 32: Laser Technology R&D for Accelerators, listed under “Type III.” This category seeks to develop ultrafast lasers in the 2-5 micron mid-infrared (IR) spectral range with energies in the mJ- J range, re ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Deep Learning Enhanced Joint Inversion for High-Resolution CO2 Plume Monitoring

    SBC: CYENTECH CONSULTING LLC            Topic: 21a

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) generated by fossil fuel combustion can have serious consequences for humans and the environment. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a key technological approach to slow down the CO2 accumulation in the atmosphere byseparating CO2 from industrial plant effluents and injecting it into an underground geological formation to permanently store the CO2. In order to monitor the pot ...
