  6. Low Cost, Power Dense, Axial Gap, Rare-Earth-Free PM Motor for Electric Drive Vehicles

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: 13b

    Cost and size reductions are needed in the electric traction drive system currently used for electric drive vehicles (EDV) to make them cost and performance competitive with fossil fuel vehicles. Such cost parity is critical to achieving public acceptance and expanded market share of EDV products. To achieve cost and size parity, the DoE’s Electrical and Electronics Technical Team has establishe ...

  7. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...
