  1. 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 ...

  4. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  6. An Instrument Platform for Controlling Weld Microstructures to Minimize Stress Corrosion Cracking in Dry Storage Canister

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: 38b

    Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a potential safety concern for welded stainless-steel dry storage canisters (DSC) for spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The welding procedure introduces high tensile residual stresses and changes in material properties in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) in the DSC. This might promote pitting and SCC crack initiation and growth when exposed to an aggressive chemical environm ...

  9. Tailored Cathode Chemistry for Next-Generation Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: 12a

    The U.S. transportation sector is experiencing a quickening transition to electric mobility. The EV market is projected to grow to over 25 million vehicles by 2030, causing the demand for Li-ion batteries (LiBs) to increase from 160 GWh in 2018 to more than 1.2 TWh in 2030. To achieve these growth rates and displace internal combustion engine vehicles in the mass market, Li-battery costs must fall ...

  10. Advancing Optical Imaging and Classification to Enhance Biodiversity Monitoring

    SBC: OceanSpace LLC            Topic: 07a

    Foundational to assessing biodiversity is an effective and cost-efficient method to identify and quantify the components of biodiversity. While a substantial proportion of present and proposed biofuel production systems are terrestrially based, the environmental impacts wash down the watershed into the aquatic ecosystem. Biodiversity monitoring can therefore be efficiently focused on surface water ...
