Ultra-Fast Charging Li-ion Battery Anodes
TS-040614 — A novel battery anode designed to overcome the limitations posed on fast charge batteries by graphite anodes. The new anode increases battery life, is more stable during manufacturing, and has improved heat dissipation qualities.
As technology continues to progress, embedding itself in our daily life from our cars to our wrists, an ever-present concern is the need for batteries with the ability to re-charge quickly. Most of these emerging technologies use Li-ion batteries with graphite anodes. Unfortunately, under fast cha…

Hollow Valve for an Engine
TS-040523 — A coolant-free valve with a hollow vacuum cavity which reduces heat conduction and improves the efficiency of engines
Valves are essential components of engines that regulate intake of fuel and air and removal of combustion products. Solid valves conduct a significant amount of heat, which reduces the efficiency of the combustion process. Previous hollow valve designs fill the inner chamber with low-melting metal…

Electrolyte to Enable Reversible Dendrite-Free Potassium Plating and Stripping for Potassium Secondary Batteries
TS-037854 — A novel electrolyte to prevent dendrite growth in potassium air batteries.
The Need Potassium-air batteries have recently emerged as alternative energy storage devices beyond lithium-ion batteries. However, potassium metal anodes suffer from poor reversibility during plating and stripping processes due to their high reactivity and unstable solid electrolyte interphase (SE…

Immobilization of Biomolecules (Rubisco) by Self-Assembled Nanostructures
TS-037787 — Nanostructures that enhance the stability of biocatalysts that permit them to be utilized in scalable CO2 conversion processes
Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) are the two most abundant greenhouse gasses, trapping thermal radiation close to the earth's atmosphere and contributing to climate change. These two gasses contributed up to 92% of all the greenhouse gas emissions in 2015 (epa.gov). From an industrial pe…

Methods and Processes for Producing Butyrate Esters from Sugars
TS-037568 — A method and process for producing butyrate esters for use as novel biofuels.These products have a similar energy content to biobutanol, but are easier to produce.
Currently, bioethanol is the major biofuel on the market, but recently butanol has gotten attention for its potential as a transportation fuel. It has many characteristics that make it a better fuel source than ethanol: butanol has 25% more Btu per gallon, it's less evaporative/explosive with …

Metabolic Engineering of Clostridium Tyrobutyricum for Butanol Production
TS-037555 — A new strain of bacteria that can produce butanol at a high titer for transportation fuel.
Butanol is generally used as an industrial solvent but can also be blended with gasoline and used as transportation fuel. Butanol is commonly produced using fossil fuels, but it can also be produced from biomass, referred to as biobutanol. Biobutanol is produced from fermentation of the same feeds…

N-Proanol and Propionic Acid Producing Propionibacteria
TS-037515 — New method of producing n-propanol and propionic acid using a metabolically engineered propionibacteria.
Propionibacteria are well-known for their various industrial applications including the manufacturing of Swiss cheese, vitamin B12, and propionic acid. However, not much is known about their genetics, and few studies have been conducted utilizing them for metabolic engineering, mostly in vitamin B…

CO2 Reduction to Acetate on Mixed Metal Oxide Catalyst
TS-037385 — A process for photoelectrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to acetate using mixed metal oxide as catalysts
The combustion of fossil fuels produces billions of tons of carbon dioxide annually. Research indicates that greater concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has altered Earth's climate, changed the pH of the ocean, and causing other potentially damaging evironmental effects. Countri…
