  5. Production of Al-Ce Casting Alloys Via Direct Reduction of Cerium Oxide

    SBC: ECK Industries, Inc.            Topic: DLA202008

    This proposal continues the development of aluminum alloy systems that use cerium as a primary alloying element at near eutectic compositions. Additional alloying elements can be used primarily to assist in the development of room-temperature mechanical properties. The cerium in the alloy stabilizes those properties at high temperatures (200-400°C). The primary intermetallic formed in the aluminu ...

  8. Recovery of Waste Battery Materials Using Molten Salt Oxidation and Separation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DLA202010

    Lithium-ion batteries provide a popular energy storage option due to their high energy and power density compared to other technologies and demand is expected to continue to grow. Most lithium-ion battery chemistries rely on cobalt and nickel oxides, both of which are fairly expensive and which the United States obtains primarily via imports. Despite this limitation, most lithium-ion batteries are ...

  9. Non-Invasive Ventilation Mask With Zero Leakage for Patients With Highly Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DLA202011

    A large number of patients with viral respiratory diseases such as COVID-19 and SARS require respiratory support. Invasive ventilation is commonly used for these patients, but this requires equipment that is in limited supply in a pandemic and can lead to poor outcomes for many patients. Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) via a mask is an appropriate alternative treatment for many patients that can le ...
