 Xtrudx Technologies, Inc.Thomas E. Loop Small Business Other Energy Technologies Xtrudx’s break-through supercritical water (SCW) depolymerization technology is based on the use of a specialized extruder configured to continuously convey, heat, pressurize, and plasticize mixed plastic feed materials into a tunable (expandable/contractible) tubular flow-through reactor. Unlike conventional slurry-fed fixed-volume reactors, Xtrudx’s proprietary tunable reactor enables variable reaction times (ranging from about 0.2 to 10 seconds). Xtrudx’s novel machinery allows the rapid hydrothermal liquefaction of a wide range of starting feed materials, including feeds of mixed waste plastics contaminated with water, residual food, and paper.

 Community Energy LabsTanya A Barham Small Business Building Efficiency At Community Energy Labs we are bringing to market the first truly scalable grid-interactive AI-powered clean building control system - key to 24/7 net-zero carbon buildings. Our mission is to affordably enable communities’ building decarbonization goals by 2030. CEL's core AI-powered clean building control platform was a regional winner of CleanTech Open's 2020 international accelerator, an overall winner in the 2020 Madrona Venture Labs Go Vertical challenge, a 2021 impel+ building innovator, EPRI Incubate Energy 2021 cohort member and 2021 US Department of Energy SBIR awardee.

Our Technology Serves People
Washington - stringent commercial building standards (HB 1257) recently became law. Cities like Seattle and all over California are banning gas in municipal buildings. Without better pricing and Grid-Interactive Efficient Building (GEB) approaches, building energy use and misaligned peaks could increase which is why the California Energy Commission (CEC) is also planning to launch dynamic electric rates by 2024. We aim to field harden and advance GEB solutions for building owners who struggle to affordably address these increasingly complex commercial energy prices and grid constraints.

CEL provides an IoT & Software as a Service control platform for building operators who find it complex, frustrating and very expensive to meet new building energy goals and prices. We install wireless sensors, equipment controllers, and use cloud-based software powered by machine learning to autonomously predict and efficiently control how and when new existing building equipment is operating so that more of it is powered by clean or affordable energy. In doing so we offer building owners higher levels of energy savings, lower carbon and up-front cost, and faster returns than competitors.

Our goals: (1) Focus on underserved building types and customers representing a scalable segment of the market; (2) Implement technical approaches to widespread load flexibility; (3) Deploy service models that incorporate customer priorities, constraints, and feedback.

Our objectives: (1) Deliver customer energy savings (5-25%) (2) Reduce peak demand (20-40%); (3) Improve occupant comfort, air quality (CO2) and load shape alignment to renewable availability compared to a measured baseline; (4) Deploy technologies and business models that are affordable, replicable, can stimulate job growth, and that can be deployed at scale in existing buildings.

 Air Squared Inc.Ryan Riebau Small Business Power Generation: Renewable Air Squared is developing a fully integrated micro-organic Rankine cycle (ORC), patent pending, for passive power generation. The Plug and Play Micro-ORC is optimized for tandem operation with prevailing continuous load natural gas generators, such as natural gas-powered combined heat and power gensets. Designed for simple home or business integration, the Plug and Play Micro-ORC is slated to produce 1 kW of electrical power, increase topping cycle efficiency by 10%, and remain maintenance free over 10,000 hours. The system is intended to leverage the benefits of traditional industrial-scale ORC plants for micro-scale power generation, where 1 kW of emission-free, passive energy can support residential homes and businesses.

The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) as part of the GENSETS program, which seeks to foster distributive energy solutions in the United States by supporting aging centralized power generation and integrating homes and business into the smart grid. The project has now moved into Phase II of development where Air Squared will prototype and test the Plug and Play Micro-ORC throughout 2018.

A compact and efficient orbiting and novel spinning scroll expander are the primary drivers of the ORC, allowing the entire system to have a footprint of less than one cubic meter. Air Squared has over twenty-five years of design heritage with scroll technology and has designed custom expanders for waste heat recovery systems up to 50 kW. While the proof of concept Plug and Play Micro-ORC is rated for 1 kW, Air Squared expects the system will demonstrate significant size, weight, and power improvements, which will encourage interest for scroll expander engines in scaled waste energy recovery systems.

ORCs are engines that exploit organic fluids with a higher molecular mass but a lower boiling point than traditional steam. The working fluid is pumped through a closed loop to drive an expander that generates continuous load electricity. Waste heat recovery using ORC systems could play an essential role in expanding the renewable energy landscape by providing emissions-free electricity that is unconstrained by location-specific environmental conditions.

 SAFCell, Inc.Calum R.I. Chisholm Small Business Other Energy Technologies SAFCell develops scalable solid acid stacks for power generation (i.e., fuel cells) and hydrogen generation (i.e., electrochemical hydrogen generators). Based on technology developed at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and operating at mid-range temperatures around 250°C, SAFCell stacks tolerate impurities that pose obstacles for other fuel cell/hydrogen generation technologies, while still using durable and inexpensive metal and polymer components. This combination results in rugged stacks that operate easily on commercially available liquid and gaseous fuels, greatly reducing overall system complexity and cost. In particular, SAFCell's solid acid stacks are the only electrochemical stacks to have demonstrated both electricity and hydrogen generation from the three leading green "liquid hydrogen carriers," namely, ammonia, methanol, and methylcyclohexane. This makes SAFCell a potential leading player in the future hydrogen economy for the highly efficient production of electricity or hydrogen from green fuels.
SAFCell is partnering with targeted system integrators to enter first stationary, and then mobile power and hydrogen markets.
