15 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Development of extreme environment materials (EEM) and related advanced manufacturing processes for system components that can withstand the typically harsh environments while also achieving sought-after performance is critical. Additive manufacturing (AM) is of great interest for the production of fossil energy-based system components due to it...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) has many advantages over photovoltaics such as higher efficiency, lower footprint for higher energy yields, and the ability to store thermal energy in times of limited sunlight. Many of the current and future CSP designs call for the use of heat transfer fluids such as molten salts including sodium nitrate, potassi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Boise State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 15d
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

HiFunda will develop a novel joining technology to enable integration of key technologies such as supercritical CO2 cycles that can significantly increase efficiencies and reduce power system size and cost. The technology platform developed will find application across a broad range of industrial sectors resulting in improved energy efficiency a...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

For a gasification based energy system the cost of the air separation unit represents 12 – 15% of the installed capital costs and requires a significant amount of power resulting in lowered operational efficiencies. Consequently, there is a significant opportunity for lowered capital costs and improved operating efficiencies for new ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DHP15-010
Budget: 02/29/16 - 08/31/16

There is an important need for lightweight, reliable, portable oxygen generators to stabilize soldiers injured in the field prior to being brought into field hospitals. Injuries sustained in the field with significant bleeding lack readily available blood replacement or compressed oxygen which can lead to permanent disability or death. It is wel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12a
Budget: 02/29/16 - 11/21/16

Membranes for gas separation represent a significant opportunity for reduced energy consumption and improved efficiencies in a wide range of industrial applications by replacing typical energy intensive processes with energy efficient processes. The ideal structure for carbon membranes is a mechanically robust porous support structure with a thi...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 15d
Budget: 02/25/16 - 11/21/16

High temperature heat exchangers are seen as an enabling technology for advanced fossil energy power generation systems, such as systems that utilize power cycles based on steam or supercritical CO2. Effective ceramic to metal joining is seen as a key technology gap for high-temperature heat exchangers that, if overcome, may enable designers to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20f
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Solid oxide fuel cells SOFCs) represent the cleanest, most efficient and versatile chemical-to-electrical energy conversion system being developed today. A critical challenge in the commercialization of SOFCs is to develop a low cost solution to the problem of chromium contamination of the cathode from the chromium Cr) containing stainless steel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12b
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Driven by growing concerns over climate change, the US leadership in renewable technologies, and the significant potential of green jobs in a future bioenergy economy, there is now a renewed urgency for developing sustainable bioenergy and bioproducts. As the use of biomass increases for power, products and fuels, one major remaining challenge ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Statement of the Problem or Situation that is Being Addressed For a gasification based energy system the cost of the air separation unit represents 12 15% of the installed capital costs and requires a significant amount of power resulting in lowered operational efficiencies. Consequently, there is a significant opportunity for lowered capital c...
