 Argonne National LaboratoryMichael Wang Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Other Energy Technologies Argonne has been developing the GREET (greet.es.anl.gov) life cycle analysis model for various DOE programs over the past 27 years. GREET covers LCA of energy systems, vehicle technologies, and building technologies. Under electrification technologies (battery EVs, hydrogen FCVs), GREET covers manufacturing of batteries, EV components (such as motors), fuel cell stacks, hydrogen storage tanks. These technologies require critical materials. GREET already has LCA of an extensive critical materials (lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper, etc.). We are expanding GREET to include alternative production venues, especially those from US domestic sources and recycling of spent technologies with critical materials in them. GREET is capable to produce LCA results for energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, criteria air pollutants, and water consumption of critical material production.

 University of UtahPrashant K Sarswat Academic Other Energy Technologies Dr. Prashant K Sarswat is a Research Associate Professor and Director of Materials Synthesis, Testing, and Analysis Facility in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Utah. He holds a B.S. degree in Mining/Mineral Engineering and M.S and Ph.D. degree in Metallurgical Engineering. He carries a significant experience in various CO2 reactive minerals and other critical minerals. His main interests in area of REEs and critical metals are: 1)Utilization of bio-hydrometallurgical process for REE/CMs recovery; 2) Separation and Enrichment of REEs/CMs from a mixture of REEs/CMs; 3)Electrorefining of rare earth and critical metals; 4)Use of alternative technology of REEs/CMs extraction. It is important to note that traditional separation and purification technologies are inefficient, cause environmental concerns, are slow, complex, and often energy intensive; thus, better separation and energy saving technology is required to meet the present demand for REEs and CMs. Dr. Sarswat had invented various new technologies for REEs/CMs separation such as use of specialized mesoporous materials, frequency assisted electrochemical methods, and force-field separators. These technologies have shown a great potential to minimize the use of various chemicals and solvent extractants. He has been worked as PI or Co-PI of various DOE funded projects, mainly focused on separation, extraction, and recovery. His hydrometallurgy lab is equipped with various state of the art equipment and processing facilities needed for separation technology. Some of those are bench scale bioreactors, pilot scale leaching and electrorefining facility, froth flotation setups, characterization facilities etc.

 ReVolt Battery Technology CorporationJan Naidu Small Business Transportation Currently, industrial-scale reclamation of spent lithium ion rechargeable batteries (LIBs) used in military battery applications based on pyrometallurgy and hydrometallurgy only recovers valuable metal elements, accompanied by intense energy consumption.

Direct regeneration of spent Li-ion batteries based on the hydrothermal relithiation of cathode materials is a promising next-generation recycling technology. ReVolt provides a closed-loop LIB cathode regeneration chain with high atomic utilization and minimal energy consumption.

The morphology of electrode particles for LCO and 6NCM622 remain almost unchanged during chemical lithiation without unwanted cracks or pulverization, indicating that lithiation treatment will not destroy the integrity of the particles. The raw material costs can be substantially reduced by either replacing the typically employed 4 M LiOH solution by a cost-effective mixture of 0.1 M LiOH and 3.9 M KOH or recycling of the concentrated 4 M LiOH for continuous relithiation processes.

Life cycle analysis demonstrates that our strategy results in reduced energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, leading to an increased potential revenue, particularly when compared with hydro- and pyrometallurgical recycling methods yielding a local supply of battery materials within the United States.

 Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryEugene S. Ilton Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Other Energy Technologies We have more than a decade of experience and over 75 publications concerning reactivity of basalt minerals and expandable clays in variably humidified carbon dioxide from ambient to supercritical pressures and temperatures. In this regard, we have developed a unique multimodal suite of in situ experimental capabilities for investigating reactivity of minerals exposed to aqueous solutions and variably humidified fluids/gasses: Combined infrared and electric impedance spectroscopies quantify solid changes (including amorphous phases), measure concentrations of dissolved species, characterize H2O at mineral surfaces, and monitor diffusive ion mass transport. Flow-through magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy follows mineral transformation processes by detection and characterization of mineral bulk and surface species and reactive intermediates. Flow-through X-ray diffraction identifies and quantifies crystalline reactants and products during mineral transformations. Our high temperature/pressure AFM images mineral growth and dissolution processes at the nanometer to Ångstrom scale on single crystal mineral surfaces to quantitatively measure structurally specific surface transformation rates.

 University of IdahoKristopher Waynant Academic Other Energy Technologies Background: Our group has been investigating a mild metal dissolution process utilizing a redox-active coordinative ligand. The ligand has been shown to bind to metals in either a 1:1 or 2:1 fashion and, depending on the substitution pattern, either undergoes a redox reaction during complexation or stays neutral. The metal-ligand complexes that form can then be electrochemically separated providing a mild and fully recyclable system. We have also explored and seen positive results with preliminary mechanochemical tests (solvent free).

Interest: We think that a mild ligand based process for metal dissolution, electrochemical separation, and recovery could lead to a new, greener direction in mineral recovery, especially from a variety of waste streams. We can then determine how much mineral the technology missed.

Capabilities: As a synthetic chemistry lab - we can make kg quantities of the ligand; do all pure metal testing and full characterization of products. We are looking for folks to partner with to take our chemistry to the next level and work on direct applications in mixed metal scenarios.

 Ebb Carbon, Inc.Matthew Eisaman Small Business Other Energy Technologies Ebb Carbon removes acid from the oceans and CO2 from the air. Ebb Carbon intercepts salty water from facilities that process seawater (like desalination plants, salt producers or aquaculture facilities) and uses electrochemistry powered by low-carbon electricity to separate this salty water into two solutions: a base (sodium hydroxide - NaOH); and an acid (hydrochloric acid- HCl).

The basic solution (sodium hydroxide - NaOH) is returned to the ocean, enhancing the ocean’s ability to draw down more atmospheric CO2. The dilute acidic solution (approximately 2.5wt% to 4wt% HCl) is prevented from returning to the ocean and provides a low-carbon, low-cost source of hydrochloric acid that can be used for a range of existing industrial purposes, including enhanced mineral recovery.

 University of GuelphRafael M. Santos Academic Other Energy Technologies Santos's main area of research is in the areas of water and solid waste treatment, environmental remediation, applied mineralogy and geochemistry, and carbon dioxide sequestration. He works to transform waste materials into valuable products and carbon sinks. Some examples of his work include turning steelmaking slags into paper fillers, turning incineration ashes into adsorbents, and turning carbon dioxide into building material. His aim is to reduce the environmental impact of industrial activities while contributing to the sustainable development of society. He is also interested in developing new reactor technologies and processing routes that consume less energy, use less hazardous substances, and are safer to operate. Santos has experimented with the use of ultrasound to speed up reactions, with tubular reactors to better control product properties, and with hot-stage reactions to take advantage of energy that is normally wasted. Santos is looking to apply his skills and expertise to new areas of research relevant to North America and beyond, including sustainable agriculture, the food industry, the mining industry, and preservation of water resources. Key areas of focus include:

1) CO2 capture, utilization, and sequestration. Santos has conducted extensive research on the sequestration of CO2 from industrial emissions sources and from the atmosphere, using mineral carbonation reactions to trap CO2 as solid carbonates.
2) Solid waste treatment and valorization. Santos has also examined using hydrothermal and supercritical reactions to valorize industrial and agricultural solid wastes. He has sought to extract and recover metals from solid wastes, reduce the leaching and instability of solid wastes thereby reducing their environmental impact, and convert solid wastes into building materials, paper fillers, adsorbents and soil amendments. Valorization strategies include ambient weathering, CO2 curing, thin-film/aqueous/sonochemical/hot-stage/supercritical carbonation, and catalytic wet oxidation.
3) Process intensification and multi-scale engineering. Santos and his research team have been exploring process intensification techniques, such as sonication, mechanochemistry and reactive separations, to overcome mass transfer and conversion limitations of solid waste treatment and valorization reactions.

 US Strategic Minerals Exploration LLCThomas Smith, PE Small Business Other Energy Technologies US Strategic Minerals Exploration is a small group of experienced oil and gas professionals who are advancing the commercialization of CCUS technologies with an emphasis on the extraction of Calcium, Magnesium, and Lithium elements that are typically found in solution in high concentration in many geothermally sourced brines. Given the volume of these brines produced and reinjected each day in the US alone in oil fields under waterflood and EOR processes (CO2 flood), there exists a huge, untapped critical mineral resource that requires much less energy to process using CO2 in a mineral carbonation process. CaCO3 and MgCO3 products that are currently manufactured using surface mined Limestone can be manufactured using Calcium and Magnesium sourced from brine and reacted with CO2 in a pH swing process that is well studied and ready for commercial scale-up. This process is typically referred to a PCC manufacturing and the product has a high value in the current paper, paint, and plastics markets due to its whiteness and strength properties.

We at US Strategic Minerals Exploration are eager to partner with academic, government and other like-minded entities in a concerted effort to make a significant reduction in the CO2 footprint of the minerals extraction and processing industries. Simply put, we have the technical research and the experience to take these proven mineral carbonation concepts and technology to the field where the source of feedstock is logistically beneficial for a commercial scale operation. We have identified projects locations in Utah, North Dakota, and Wyoming that meet the economic hurdles necessary for capital investment and Sec 45Q tax relief. Pilot scale testing of our process is needed, once completed we are ready for full scale up and application to similar brine sources world-wide.
