  9. Hybridization of Freeze Casting with Additive Manufacturing for Simplified Production of High Performance SOFCs Topic and subtopic: 18b

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 18b

    Despite enormous advantages of high efficiency and fuel flexibility, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) have seen limited development in mobile, including aerospace, application areas. On the technical front, this condition has been primarily driven by the low specific power density of SOFCs, typically less than 0.5 kW/kg. On the manufacturing front, limitations have been related to catalyst infiltrat ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing of Large Scale Heat Exchanger (Topic 18a)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Nickel super alloys, such as Inconel®, are leading candidates for fossil energy-based power production components due to their resilience in extreme environments. A significant technical roadblock to the implementation of nickel-based power plant systems is the inability to produce large-scale components in a cost competitive manner. We will address the problem of manufacturing large, low-cost su ...
