  2. Second Generation Glass Fiber Composites Fabricated from Retired Wind Turbine Blades

    SBC: CARBON RIVERS LLC            Topic: 15c

    Glass fiber is the most common reinforcement material for all polymer composites (a $43.93 billion dollar market in 2017), including all wind turbine blades of which it’s estimated there will be over 4.8 million tonnes of by 2050. However, there exists no economical method of handling these composites once they reach end of life, meaning they are all currently destined for the landfill. For wind ...

  7. The Development of a Stabilized SEI Layer for Si-Containing Lithium Ion Battery Anodes

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 13a

    This project focuses on the development of new lithium ion battery (LIB) electrolyte/cathode combinations that enable stabilized solid electrolyte interphases (SEI) on Si- based materials. This effort focuses on negative electrodes combining synthetic graphite and Si- based materials, where Si contributes at least 30% of the reversible capacity of the electrode. This effort will result in signific ...

  8. Pulsating Heat Pipes for Particle Accelerator Magnet Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    Many modern superconducting magnets, such as those used in advanced particle accelerators, small scale fusion reactors, medical systems and basic magnetic research are cooled to their low operating temperature by contact with a refrigerator. It is frequently a challenge for designers to cool these large magnets uniformly due to thermal gradients that occur at cryogenic temperature. Systems experie ...
