Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10c
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

Biogas generation from the anaerobic decomposition of biological waste from municipal waste, farm waste, and waste-water treatment presents a renewable source of hydrocarbon feedstocks for fuels and chemical manufacturing. This market is projected to reach $33B in 2022. However, the majority of biogas currently generated is combusted to produce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18d
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

SOFC systems are beginning to find application in markets throughout the world. Premium power products (uninterrupted power for datacenters and mobile systems for military) are providing the first market niches, while new utility strategies requiring distributed micro-grid power generation and energy storage promise excellent opportunity to prod...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-072
Budget: 08/09/16 - 02/09/17

In this proposed SBIR project, Nexceris will design, develop and demonstrate an ultra-high power density solid oxide fuel cell generator for deployed Joint Command and Control (DJ2C) applications. The targeted generator will deliver 1.2 kW of power, consume less than 0.1 gallon per hour of fuel, and will weigh less than 25 pounds. In Phase I of...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

In this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project, Nexceris, LLC proposes to develop new engineered catalysts for steam reforming (STR) and water gas shift (WGS) to convert still gases to hydrogen for refineries. Deep desulfurization for ultra-low-sulfur fuels in refineries has led to more need in hydrogen supply. Meanwhile, refineries p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Nexceris proposes to develop novel structured catalysts for mixed CO2-steam reforming (CSR) and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) to convert biogas to wax, diesel, jet fuel and gasoline. As a renewable energy, biogas is produced from wet waste in the absence of oxygen and contains mainly CH4 and CO2. With concerns about global warming and ways of ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H8.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

NASA has a defined need for energy dense and highly efficient energy storage and power delivery systems for future space missions. Compared to other fuel cell technologies, solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) based systems are better suited to meeting NASA's efficiency targets while operating directly on methane and oxygen reactants. SOFC power syste...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 15a
Budget: 04/11/16 - 04/10/18

In this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, NexTech Materials proposes to use novel structured catalysts for steam methane reforming (SMR) to syngas. Methane is the major component of shale gas with vast quantity and is very stable. In addition to using methane as fuel, converting methane to value-added chemicals has been extensiv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-056
Budget: 08/26/15 - 05/26/16

ABSTRACT:In this SBIR project, NexTech Materials will collaborate with Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) to design an SOFC based auxiliary power unit (APU) for unmanned aerial systems. The APU will be based on NexTech?s sulfur tolerant and power dense SOFC stack and PCI?s sulfur tolerant JP-8 reforming technology. In Phase I of the project, var...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD13-EP4
Budget: 08/14/15 - 11/14/17

Small unmanned aerial systems (S-UAS), unmanned ground systems (UGS), vehicle auxiliary power units (APU), and mobile power generation units require high efficiency power systems capable of operating on logistically available fuels (JP-8, diesel) to enable long endurance operation. In particular, S-UASs in the Group 2 (21 55 lbs)/Group 3 ( 150...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19b
Budget: 07/27/15 - 07/26/17

Fuel cells have emerged as a promising new technology for meeting the Nations energy needs. Of the various types, solid oxide fuel cells offer environmentally clean, quiet and highly efficient electricity and heat generation from natural gas and other hydrocarbon fuels. In solid oxide fuel cell systems, cost remains the most significant barrier ...
