With ARPA-E support, the University of Florida (UF) has experimented with enhancing fuel production in a species of pine (loblolly) that is currently used in the paper pulping industry.

ARPA-E funded two teams in the Rare Earth Alternatives in Critical Technologies (REACT) program to develop advanced HTS magnet wire with high critical current: Brookhaven National Lab (teamed with AMSC) and University of Houston (teamed with SuperPower). The teams took different technical approaches to modifying HTS wire composition and structure to address this challenge.

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) project aims to: (1) develop low cost, autonomous robots with sensors to rapidly collect phenotypic information within large field trials (Figure 2); (2) develop software to deliver high-throughput phenomics from the sensor data; (3) use a model-based data synthesis system to capture physiological parameters and predict yield; and (4) integrate this diverse information with whole-genome DNA sequencing technologies to identify genes underlying the traits and their genetic markers that will maximize the pace of trait discovery.

The Illinois team proposed to develop a bioenergy crop capable of producing 17 times the amount of oil produced by an acre of soybean and twice the fuel yield as corn ethanol in the United States by engineering sugarcane to (1) increase cold tolerance; (2) increase photosynthetic efficiency; and (3) accumulate energy dense triacyl-glycerol (TAG) molecules instead of sugar.

However, garnet-electrolyte batteries have long faced challenges related to electrolyte thickness, low surface area at the electrode/electrolyte interface, and inherently poor solid-solid interfacial contact. To address this, the University of Maryland (UMD) team combined expertise from disparate fields, including experience with solid oxide fuel cells, in-depth knowledge about the LLZO material, and battery manufacturing capability.

The University of Maryland (UMD) project seeks to optimize monetary and non-monetary incentives to gain maximum energy reduction in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.

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.

Prior to ARPA-E support, the project team had demonstrated a prototype “dual-band” EC material, able to independently modulate visible and NIR light transmission.

The University of Utah (Utah) project’s goal was to develop a novel thermochemical process to extract Ti metal from ore that substantially reduces the cost, energy consumption, and emissions of Ti metal production

Electrodynamic sorting (EDX) is a technology developed with ARPA-E support at the University of Utah. It is similar to a traditional eddy current separator in that it uses time-varying magnetic fields to sort scrap.
