Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: Unavailable

The most common method for utility energy storage in the US is pumped hydro, which has very low energy density (~ 1.1 kWh/m3) and long response times (1 to 5 min). Another method is the use of rechargeable batteries such as lead acid batteries (40 kWh/m3), which require high maintenance and have a low cycle life. Therefore, the DOE is interest...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-177
Budget: 05/28/98 - 05/28/00

A prototype of lithium-ion rechargeable cell using ambient temperature molten salt electrolytes will be developed. Two types of ambient temperature molten salt electrolytes will be used. These electrolytes show high conductivity, wide electrochemical window, no safety hazard, and operating temperature range form -40C to 300C. One of the melts...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1990
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

A NEW CONCEPT OF A SLURRY ELECTROLYTE CELL FOR PRIMARY ALUMINUM EMPLOYING A NON-CONSUMABLE ANODE IS PRESENTED. THE FINE-PARTICLE ALUMINA SLURRY CONCEPT ALLOWS CELL OPERATION AT A TEMPERATURE OF 700 DEGREES CENTIGRADE AS COMPARED TO 950 DEGREES-980 DEGREES CENTIGRADE IN CONVENTIONAL HALL-HERAULT CELLS. THE LOWER OPERATING TEMPERATURE IS EXPECTED ...

Topic: 1984
Budget: 01/01/84 - 12/31/84

THE WORK DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED TOWARD QUANTITATIVELY UNDERSTANDING THE ELECTROCHEMISTRY OF LOCALIZED CORROSION IN AQUEOUS ENERGY PRODUCTION AND CONVERSION FACILITIES TO PROVIDE A BASIS FOR SOLVING THESE EXPENSIVE PROBLEMS. THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR AND COLLABORATORS PUBLISHED IN 1969 THE FIRST QUANTITATIVE MATHEMATICAL MODEL FO...
