 Purdue UniversityYu SheAssistant Professor Academic Other Energy Technologies Dr. She's lab at Purdue University focused on tactile sensing and robotic manipulation, including robotic assembly/disassembly in confined space, vision/touch empowered assembly, deformable object manipulation. A notable highlight of his work is the introduction of a novel multimodal sensing technique in robotics, achieved by embedding cameras within soft robot fingers. This technology enables the estimation of various physical properties of objects, such as geometry, hardness, and texture, as well as the states of the robots, such as proprioception, which significantly enhances robotic interaction with their surroundings, such as assembly and disassembly. His research also encompasses the design of compliant and soft robots, such as robotic hands/grippers, mobile robots, and snake robots. He developed advanced statics, kinematics, and dynamic modeling to guide the engineering design of these robots. The research experience may be applied to battery pack disassembly.

 Cool Amps Corp.Thomas MaddenChief Technology Officer Small Business Power Generation: Renewable The Principal Investigator has recent experience in developing a novel electrochemical extraction technique of transition metals from end-of-life lithium-ion batteries. This technique is filed with the U.S. Patent Office as the following invention: "Electrochemical Recycling Systems and Methods for End-of_life and Scrap Lithium-ion Batteries. The investigator also has relevant experience in the design & operation of elevated-temperature electrochemical cells. These cells demonstrated and accurately quantified the effects of elevated temperature on methanol electro-oxidation. This work was completed at the University of Washington in 2001 and supported by the Petroleum Research Fund (Dr. Nancy Jensen - - (202) 872-6186). He also has several highly-cited papers describing the treatment of metal-EDTA complexes using TiO2 photocatalysis (PC), in particular Ni- and Co-EDTA (ref). This work is particularly relevant as it showed that the PC process selectively oxidizes the chelating carboxylic acid groups of the EDTA, thus freeing the metal ions. This research was completed at Sandia National Laboratories in 1997 and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under Contract DE-AC-04-94AL85000 (Maria Vasquez - 505-845-4805).

 Teledyne Energy SystemsTim HennesyBattery Engineering Manager Large Business Other Energy Technologies Teledyne Energy Systems, Inc. (TESI) specializes in the production, research, and development of energy storage and energy production technologies with a focus on Radioisotope Thermal Generators (RTGs), Hydrogen Electrolysis Systems, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology, and Batteries.

TESI’s battery expertise is pack design, development and qualification for products used in harsh environments. Examples include cold weather packs for long-term arctic operations, pressure tolerant packs for subsea use, and packs designed for the extremes of space.

A key role TESI can play regarding new battery designs for a circular battery economy would be the development of cell joining techniques. Specifically, technologies that allow for removable/reworkable connections while still maintaining high-speed throughput and low impedance connection comparable to traditional resistance and laser welding techniques. We believe TESI is uniquely positioned to achieve a new technique based on our experience with creating reversible intermetallic bonds in our RTG products through ultrasonic welding.

We think that partnering with a group in the battery-powered vehicle space could allow for the creation of a new battery system. This system would maintain the cost/speed of production and electrical performance of a traditional design while enabling disassembly down to the cell level. This would allow for single cell repairs and a more efficient means of recycling.

 Iontra IncDaniel KonopkaChief Science Officer, co-founder, PhD Small Business Other Energy Technologies Iontra is a Denver-based company founded upon novel battery sensing and charge control technology that characterizes and prevents critical failure mechanisms including plating and dendrites, enables dramatic performance benefits for new and aged lithium-ion batteries, and meaningfully impacts numerous aspects of battery supply chain circularity. Iontra is validated by four independent laboratories, including NREL, and approximately three million cycling hours in Iontra’s own state-of-the-art facilities.

Iontra delivers a hardware and software-based platform for protecting, recovering, and measuring the health of battery cell and pack internal components. Iontra’s system senses and manipulates the electrodynamics within a pack or cell using controlled current to improve and recover health during charging, discharging or idle periods. The sensing approach requires no battery modification and provides real time information about the onset of degradation processes far earlier than impedance-based methods like EIS, DCIR, etc. This can be used to direct a health-restoration process at optimal times and diagnose aged cells/packs for safer, more cost-efficient transportation, 2nd life assignment, or recycling.

Iontra is interested in:

• Sensor platforms and methodologies capable of rapid determination of state of health (SoH) for individual battery cells during use and/or at the end of battery pack life to determine whether the cells should be regenerated, reused, or recycled
• Regeneration techniques/protocols to efficiently and cost-effectively restore battery cells to earlier life performance and safety
• Battery intelligence systems and data analytics to extend the service life of cells, modules, and packs.
• Application of Iontra’s platform to in situ healing and regeneration methods to various battery cell materials and designs

Iontra is supported by 140+ employees and operates four facilities in Denver and Dallas for R&D, large scale battery cycling (3000+ cyclers), EV cell testing, and hardware and software development. Iontra’s team includes PhD level experts in analytical electrochemistry, materials science, lithium-ion battery design, air-sensitive materials characterization, Design of Experiments and Statistics, and data analysis. Iontra has separate groups focused on machine learning as well as multi-physics modeling. A large portion of the staff have backgrounds in electrical engineering and physics.

 COnovate IncCarol HirschmuglCEO Small Business Other Energy Technologies COnovate is an R&D, clean tech/hard tech start-up developing patented eCOphiteTM anode materials for active anodes for Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIBs). This is a development from a discovery at the University of Wisconsin. COnovate has demonstrated that its eCOphite material delivers benefits across the LIB ecosystem, producing a cost-competitive eCOphite material as compared to battery grade graphite. The material is produced with a scalable process and will reduce supply chain anxiety by being locally sourced while delivering improved LIB performance. Battery grade ECOphite materials are “drop-in” ready for battery manufacturers. They are generated from biomass and are micron size particles that have size and shape like graphite, the incumbent active anode material for LIBs. ECOphite materials used both in combination with graphite or by itself, delivers higher specific capacity than graphite, providing similar benefits as silicon additives without the disadvantages (I.e., short calendar life and swelling). eCOphite material is a novel active anode material for the rapidly growing lithium-ion battery industry and ecosystem.

COnovate is seeking interactions with battery manufacturers who want improved lithium-ion battery performance in parallel with minimal impact on battery manufacturing for lower cost at scale. The batteries deliver fast charging capability, low temperature performance and a safer solution with reduced likelihood of dendrite formation. COnovate is ready to deliver active anode materials for large scale battery prototypes and is prepared to scale-up quickly to meet future demands.
