  1. Reclaim E-Waste

    SBC: TdVib LLC            Topic: 06c

    Rare earth metals and alloys that contain them are a key modern-day material used in many applications such as consumer electronics, computer memory, DVDs, rechargeable batteries, catalytic converters, magnets, and fluorescent lighting. The use of rare earth elements are vital for modern life, but the end products are rarely recycled. Recycling often requires the use of very aggressive solvents or ...

  2. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  3. Protonic Ceramic Membranes with Unprecedented Electrochemical Efficiency

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    Wind and solar electricity are gaining traction in the marketplace, but the electricity available from these sources is out of synch with demand Protonic ceramic electrochemical cells (PCECs) operating at intermediate temperatures (400 - 650°C) have enormous potential for electricity storage and delivery by reversible operation between electrolysis and fuel cell modes and therefore stand to addre ...

  5. 3D printing of High Precision Radiation Filters for next generation Cosmic Background (CMB) studies.

    SBC: Obsidian Advanced Manufacturing LLC            Topic: 31h

    The next generation of Cosmic Ray Background detectors require large area filters in the microwave part of the spectrum between 100 to 300 Gigahertz. These filters are essential to the extremely sensitive detection of the cosmic background radiation at the level of one part in a billion and will require precise fabrication of metallic structures on a polymer substrate. These filters will be placed ...

  6. Coordinated Multiscale Modeling and Synthesis of Novel Nanostructured Composite Membranes for Solar Fuels Generation

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: 19b

    Generation of carbon-based liquid fuels from reduction of CO2 using solar energy requires the development of improved membranes that provide good ionic conductivity and mechanical properties while minimizing the crossover of gases and reduction products. Using closely coordinated multiscale modeling, synthesis and characterization studies we propose to investigate and develop novel nanostructured ...

  7. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to Liquids

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 22c

    The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...

  8. Novel Sulfonated Block Copolymers for Efficient Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression

    SBC: Sustainable Innovations, LLC            Topic: 17d

    According to a report by the Hydrogen Council, a global lobby set up in January 2017 by Toyota and Air Liquide that includes 27 members such as automakers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Honda and Hyundai, and energy firms Shell and Total, increasing the use of hydrogen in power, transport, heat and industry could deliver around one fifth of the total carbon emissions cuts needed to limit global warming to sa ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Ammonia Production with Immobilized Nitrogenase

    SBC: Fulcrum Bioscience, LLC            Topic: 08c

    Logistical shortages of ammonia, coupled with the high cost of new manufacturing plants, >$2BB, leads to lower agricultural output and lost revenue. The current Haber-Bosch process is also energy intensive and consumes ~1% of the total world energy output. Fulcrum Biosciences, FBS, with the University of Utah as subcontractor will develop a bio-electrochemical process that converts air into ammoni ...

  10. Ease of use and deployment for a fast, scalable data movement infrastructure

    SBC: VISUS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    In recent decades, High Performance Computing (HPC) has risen as one of the key enablers of innovation in science and engineering. However, industrial adoption has been impeded by the complexity and cost of deploying applications. Problems include the quality, speed, and flexibility of software tools and the specialized expertise required to adapt solutions given the profusion of hardware config ...
