 QuanVerge Inc.Dr Stephen R ClarkeFounder and CEO Small Business Other Energy Technologies QuanVerge develops, supplies and licenses it Ebonex(R) range of chemically inert and eclectically conductive electrode materials. Ebonex(R) has previously shown promise as the basis for a reversible, long duration air electrode for Metal Air Batteries. Previous versions of Ebonex(R) were limited by a modest specific surface area, which impacted reaction kinetcs and required higher catalyst loadings. We are now solving this limitation with novel versions which deliver exceptional specific surface area, to deliver high reaction kinetics.

Separately, QV is developing a novel reversible Zinc-Air chemistry which uses a safe organic acid electrolyte, which has delivered >10,000 cycles in a closely related application. This novel chemistry is free of dendrite formation and repels atmospheric CO2 absorption, and delivers a higher OCV and power density than is possible with conventional alkaline electrolytes.

 Wright ElectricColin TschidaHead of Powertrain Small Business Transportation Wright Electric is developing electric propulsion technologies to eliminate carbon emissions in single-aisle class aircraft. A major component of any electric vehicle architecture is the energy storage system (ESS). Wright is developing an ESS to support their megawatt-class electric propulsion system.

Wright is investigating high specific energy chemistries, beginning with Aluminum-air chemistries through work done in our lab and with our partners. Wright’s work is separated into development of optimized chemistries as well as mechanical packaging of cells into packs tailored for aerospace application. In addition, Wright is partnering to investigate other chemistries which may offer additional power performance.

Wright's development of aluminum air batteries is focused on two major fronts, minimizing parasitic reactions and improving packaging. Inhibiting the parasitic side reactions, a known issue with AL-air batteries, is top priority. To do this, Wright staff is developing an automated screening system to characterize electrolytes quickly and cost effectively. Additionally, several novel non aqueous electrolytes and catalysts have been created and are undergoing testing with partners. The other front of mechanical packaging involved the design and testing of multiple cell architectures. Wright quickly iterated through multiple cell layouts and novel packaging arrangements to reduce non-active mass.

In order to address some limitations with Aluminum-air chemistries, Wright and its partners are currently developing plans to investigate other chemistries which leverage the team's expertise. Efficient chemistries and innovative pack designs will enable Wright’s Al-air battery packs ESS to reach new heights.

Wright currently has a battery lab within the company's Malta NY laboratory. That lab is currently undergoing an expansion to further improve the company's ability to develop and explore battery technologies.

 HydroporeMichael ArgoshCEO Small Business Power Generation and Energy Production: Liquid and Gaseous Fuels/Nuclear Hydropore builds shipping containers that produce clean fuels. Its first solution is a containerized clean hydrogen production system designed to be ‘drop-in’ to any site, whether that be an off-grid construction site, a rural refueling station, or on a bulk carrier in the middle of the ocean. Hydropore is providing reliable fuel supply infrastructure for the next generation of trucks, buses, planes, trains, and ships.

Hydropore’s system is unique in that it has a low space footprint, does not require purified water or rare earth metals, and consumes electricity only when it is clean, cheap, and readily available. The peer-reviewed and patent pending hydrogen production processes allows for cost-competitive ($3-$5 / kg) clean hydrogen production in areas that would be otherwise unserved by the hydrogen economy.

The core of the technology is a proprietary activated zinc that reacts with water (including seawater) at ambient temperature and pressure to produce hydrogen on-demand. Using metal to split water has been done before. What makes Hydropore’s technology different is the proprietary activated zinc can be regenerated for reuse by applying electricity to the system. Hydropore has built a hydrogen-producing battery.

Hydropore's technology can be utilized for on-board production of hydrogen / range-extension for marine vessels. If utilizing external seawater as an electrolyte, Hydropore's system (paired with a fuel cell) can deliver ~500 Wh / kg.

Hydropore was founded by Mike Argosh and Dr. Eric Detsi.

Detsi is Associate Professor in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He is a leader in the design and synthesis of electrochemical energy storage solutions. Detsi was awarded an NSF CAREER Award in 2021 and was named an Emerging Investigator by the Journal of Materials Chemistry.

Argosh is the CEO of Hydropore and has spent his career working in the clean energy industry, developing corporate strategies for power & utility companies and launching new products at climate tech startups. Mike was awarded a Clean Energy Leadership Institute Fellowship in 2022, recognizing emerging leaders in clean energy.

 KBRWyle Services LLCMohit Rakesh MehtaMaterial Scientist Large Business Other Energy Technologies He has 10 years of experience in continuum modeling and simulation of lithium batteries. His research work focused development of physics-based analytical models and multiphysics models to compute the impedance response of Li-oxygen batteries. His continuum modeling experience also includes using statistical methods to account for fabrication discrepancies and their response to battery characteristics. He has three journal publications and over 10 presentations on the topic.

He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Florida State University under the guidance of Prof. Petru Andrei in Fall 2015. His Ph.D. focused on the development of a physics-based electrochemical model of the impedance spectrum in lithium-air batteries. He implemented the perturbation method in the finite element device simulator to simulate EIS experiments. He joined the University of Delaware as a postdoctoral researcher in spring 2016 under Prof. Sandeep Patel. He learned new skills, such as applying machine learning algorithms for the development of transferable force-fields. He used machine learning and Gromacs to develop a transferable force-field. Next, he used ab initio techniques to study the effect of dipole moments in the dynamic properties of a moiety in solution.

In the summer of 2017, he joined Computational Materials Group at NASA Ames Research Center, where he worked on NASA's LiON CAS project, which was related to a feasibility study of Li-oxygen chemistry to electric aircraft. He is currently working on SPARRCI to simulate battery failure and has developed a reduced-order-model to detect anomalies specific to different classes (using flight profiles and power draw) of electric vehicles in Li-ion batteries to develop a prognostic tool to improve the safety of these batteries while.

This opportunity would provide a platform to collaborate and develop accurate multiscale models for an SSB using a hybrid (physics-and-data-driven) approach, along with dynamic model reduction capabilities which would reduce the computational and mathematical burden of moving from detailed and complex models to simplified models for a BMS or system optimization.
