Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-040
Budget: 08/12/16 - 02/08/17

A significant challenge in managing air quality in closed environments such as naval submarines is mitigating carbon dioxide concentration, which can accumulate to levels toxic to humans through normal respiration if not actively removed. The Navy currently uses liquid and solid amine based chemistries to capture CO2 from cabin air, which requir...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Ammonia (NH3) is a top 10 energy consuming chemical in the United States (U.S.) and one of the most energy intensive chemicals to manufacture in the world. In addition to consuming 1-2% of world-wide energy, the production of NH3 also generates 350 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions yearly, which is ~1% of total greenhouse gas (GHG)...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17c
Budget: 04/11/16 - 04/10/18

A major challenge in successful development of unitized regenerative fuel cells (URFC’s) is the bifunctional air/oxygen electrode. In proton exchange membrane-based systems, the number of stable elements at electrolysis potentials is extremely limited, restricting the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) / oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalyst to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 04/01/16 - 03/31/18

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project includes applications ranging from peak load shifting, grid buffering for renewable energy input, frequency regulation, and chemical conversions. As the percentage of energy from renewables on the grid increases, energy storage will be essential t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.4
Budget: 08/10/15 - 12/31/15

The Haber-Bosch process, one of the most impactful developments in human history, has provided enough fertilizer to the world that it is estimated nearly half of the nitrogen found in our bodies originated in a Haber-Bosch chemical plant. However, this technological marvel comes at a price. On U.S. farms, 29% of energy consumed (directly and ind...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H3.02
Budget: 05/21/15 - 05/20/17

The proposed innovation is the development of a cathode feed electrolysis cell stack capable of generating 3600 psi oxygen at a relevant scale for future exploration missions. This innovation is relevant to NASA's need for compact, quiet, efficient, and long-lived sources of pressurized oxygen for atmosphere revitalization (AR) and EVA oxygen s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.4
Budget: 05/14/15 - 12/31/15

Fertilizer is required for increasing crop productivity and gives farmers economic viability. However, the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers results in excess nitrate runoff in the ground water, and has the potential to cause significant health problems if consumed in large quantities. There is an increasing body of evidence that nitrate polluti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13c
Budget: 02/17/15 - 11/16/15

Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: A major challenge in successful development of unitized regenerative fuel cells (URFCs) is the bifunctional air/oxygen electrode. In proton exchange membrane-based systems, the number of stable elements at electrolysis potentials is extremely limited, restricting the oxygen evolution...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H3.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The proposed innovation is the development of a cathode feed electrolysis cell stack capable of generating 3600 psia oxygen at a relevant scale for future exploration missions. This innovation is relevant to NASA's need for compact, quiet, efficient, and long-lived sources of pressurized oxygen for atmosphere revitalization (AR) and EVA oxygen ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Kansas

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project includes applications ranging from peak load shifting, grid buffering for renewable energy input, frequency regulation, and chemical conversions. As the percentage of energy from renewables on the grid increases, energy storage will be essential to stabilize the supply and demand. Currently...
