  2. OPERA: Optimizing a potassium-ion electrolyte for revolutionary automotive batteries

    SBC: Project K Energy, Inc.            Topic: 1

    We propose to develop and commercialize a potassium-ion battery for use in electric vehicles (EVs). The fundamental properties of potassium transport in organic electrolytes allow for fast charging from 0 to 80% capacity in less than 5 minutes. The battery will pair a stable, open-framework cathode based on a Prussian blue analog (PBA) with a conventional graphite anode for a high-performance batt ...

  3. Liquefied Gas Electrolytes for Next-Gen EV Batteries

    SBC: SOUTH 8 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 1

    This combined phase SBIR I,II,IIS proposal seeks to develop and demonstrate high power lithium battery cells having up to 330 Wh-kg specific energy with capability to fast charge using a novel Liquefied Gas Electrolyte (LiGas) technology. The LiGas electrolyte uses safe and non-toxic, non-corrosive gasses which are liquefied under moderate pressures and are easily contained in standard cylindrical ...

  4. SAVANT: Sequential Advancement of Technology for Deep Borehole Disposal

    SBC: Deep Isolation, Inc.            Topic: C

    This project supports the ARPA-E Mission Area of “improving management, clean-up and disposal of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel”. A series of tests and demonstrations for deep borehole disposal canisters at the Deep Borehole Demonstration Center in Cameron, Texas - coupled with development of a US supply chain and global tech-to-market partnerships - will mature the canister to Techn ...

  5. DESTRUCTION OF VAM USING A MODULAR CATALYTIC ELEMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: PRECISION COMBUSTION, INC.            Topic: NA

    To eliminate the release of ventilation air methane (VAM) associated with coal production, the core challenge is how to oxidize methane given the low concentrations. Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes an innovative modular array combining three key elements: (1) short contact time, low thermal mass reactor design to achieve maximal total conversion in a small volume, (2) catalyst formulati ...

  6. Biomimetic CO2 to Fuel Enabled by Scalable Catalyst Development and Synthetic Electrochemistry

    SBC: PACIFIC INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: C

    Biomimetic CO2 to Fuel Enabled by Scalable Catalyst Development and Synthetic Electrochemistry Methane is a primary source of national energy, often in the form of liquid natural gas (LNG), accounting for up to 30% of all energy produced in the United States. Further, LNG boasts a number of benefits over other chemical energy storage methods: it has a higher volumetric energy density than alternat ...

  7. NANOSTRUCTURED PD-ANF COMPOSITES FOR CONTROLLED LENR EXPLOITATION

    SBC: AMPHIONIC LLC            Topic: A

    Energy production has been dominated by hydrocarbon fuels, which are plentiful, cheap, and delivered through an efficient and widespread infrastructure. However, because the combustion of those fuels results in airborne pollutants and CO2 emission, there has been an intense effort to replace those combustion technologies with low-cost, low-emission energy sources. Low-energy nuclear reactions (LEN ...

  8. Merit International First Responder Digital Badging SBIR Ph I DHS231-003

    SBC: Merit International, Inc.            Topic: DHS231003

    Many first responder organizations at various levels, including federal, state and local, as well as non-profit agencies each have different methods of identifying first responders on scene during an incident. The lack of an interoperable and standardized credentialing solution for first responders results in more challenges with communication and coordinated access to information on identificatio ...

  9. Reduced-Order Modeling of Critical Communications Network Protect Surfaces

    SBC: TIAMI LLC            Topic: DHS231006

    Tiami LLC, a socially and economically disadvantaged small business located in a HUBZone, aims to develop a first-of-its-kind reduced-order modeling solution for data communications networks. We will develop a discrete-time linear time-invariant (LTI) state-space model for a general communications network. We will then apply projection methods such as proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and bala ...

  10. The salt and iron path to renewables integration

    SBC: Inlyte Energy, Inc.            Topic: NA

    To meet the grand challenges of climate change and energy independence we must replace fossil fuels with solar, wind, and storage. The sodium metal halide (NaMx) battery is a uniquely attractive solution for next-generation grid storage. The raw storage materials in the NaMx iron chemistry are table salt (NaCl) and iron, two of the most abundant and lowest-cost materials. In addition, the NaMx bat ...
