SBC: Deep Reach Technology, Inc. Topic: G
Seabed mining may be the best option to fill the impending gap in terrestrial supplies for nickel, cobalt, and rare earth elements, which are increasingly used to manufacture electric vehicles and large lithium-ion batteries. Deep Reach Technology will design a novel nodule collector to minimize the impact of sediment plumes, which may disperse and cover the seabed beyond the mining area. The proj ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: Celadyne Technologies, Inc. Topic: G
Celadyne Technologies will develop an innovative elevated temperature proton conducting ionomer material. The team improves upon existing technology relying on acid-base chemistry in favor of an approach driven by defect chemistry and interfacial nanoionic interactions. The technology could improve efficiency in proton exchange membrane fuel cells and electrolyzers and reduce CO2 emissions.SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platformSBC: LECTROLYST LLC Topic: G
Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
