  1. Plasma Guns for Magnetized Fuel Targets for PJMIF

    SBC: HyperJet Fusion Corporation            Topic: G

    This project develops a potentially faster and cheaper approach to fusion energy that would result in reduced energy emissions. In plasma jet driven magneto-inertial fusion (PJMIF), an array of discrete supersonic plasma jets is used to form a spherically imploding plasma liner, which then compresses a magnetized plasma target to fusion conditions. With funding from ARPA-E’s ALPHA program and fr ...

  2. Highly Efficient Vacuum Smelting of Aluminum

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: G

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate an innovative aluminum smelting technology that will significantly increase the range of aluminum alloys that can be manufactured from recycling of scrap aluminum. This will result in reduction of need for primary aluminum with corresponding 95% energy and CO2 emission benefits. The proposed melting of pre-sorted aluminum alloys using UHV ...

  4. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  6. Advanced Catalyst Manufacturing Enabled by Direct Joule Heating

    SBC: HIGHT-TECH            Topic: G

    Ammonia synthesis reactions, enabled by the Haber-Bosch process, account for approximately 3% of the world’s total energy use. Here, we propose a cascade reactor with a sequence of catalyst compositions which are tailored to a specific stage of the synthesis reaction. The various catalyst compositions are enabled by our novel, direct joule heating process for synthesizing high entropy alloy nano ...

  8. Improved Nodule Collector Design to Mitigate Sediment Plumes

    SBC: Deep Reach Technology, Inc.            Topic: G

    Seabed mining may be the best option to fill the impending gap in terrestrial supplies for nickel, cobalt, and rare earth elements, which are increasingly used to manufacture electric vehicles and large lithium-ion batteries. Deep Reach Technology will design a novel nodule collector to minimize the impact of sediment plumes, which may disperse and cover the seabed beyond the mining area. The proj ...

  10. Photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter

    SBC: MOGENE GREEN CHEMICALS, LC            Topic: G

    MOgene Green Chemicals will develop a novel photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter. Intensive agriculture practices, including the removal of residual crops, use of synthetic fertilizer and herbicides, and tillage practices, have led to lost organic matter, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and reduced capacity of the soil to store carbon. If ...
