Under the Plants Engineered To Replace Oil (PETRO) program, ARPA-E funded projects at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and the University of Massachusetts (UMass) focused on engineering Camelina to dramatically increase the oil yield of the crop, and the composition of the oil to be a better fuel

This project aims to translate the laboratory development of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL) patented alumina-forming austenitic casting alloys into industry-applicable materials that can survive production practices and still operate in high temperatures and caustic environments.

Onboard Dynamics’ (ObDI) received an ARPA-E award for development of a mechanism in which a natural-gas driven internal combustion engine (ICE) can be used to compress low pressure natural gas to 250 bar (3,600 psi) for storage. The engine compressor takes advantage of the existing compression capability of an internal combustion engine. Two

The first phase of work demonstrated that a textile can achieve the targeted temperature-triggered change in insulation. As such, ARPA-E has awarded Otherlab additional funding for a second phase of development, during which the project will demonstrate paths to production and to market.

To enable low cost, low-weight fuel storage that conforms to the available space on a vehicle, Otherlab proposed a new natural gas tank design that comprises a single tube with a series of bends that allow the tube to occupy more of a space, much like the bends in an intestine allow it to occupy the space in the abdominal cavity.

Otherlab began their project with the goal to disrupt the CSP cost structure by engineering a two-axis tracking system for a heliostat mirror field, and midway through their project, refocused to the development of single axis trackers for flat-panel PV.

This project aims to develop high-biomass sorghum with superior drought/salinity tolerance. The CASP team has developed phenotyping test sites in California and Texas to provide ideal conditions and real environments

The PARC team proposed a transformational approach to battery management based on fiber-optic (FO) sensors. PARC’s newly developed low-cost, high-accuracy FO wavelength shift detector was a key enabling technology for the project.

Under its OPEN 2009 award from ARPA-E, Phononic’s goal was to develop compact and efficient thermoelectric waste heat converters and coolers based on lead chalcogenide materials using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE).

Plant Sensory Systems’ (PSS) project goals were to increase sugar yield from beets by 30% over standard beet sugar yields today (4.98 tons/acre) and reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer needed. The PSS teams approach was to use their proprietary promoters and genes that, when expressed in plants, increases GABA production and yields a Nitrogen Use Efficiency and Stress Tolerance (NUEST) trait.
