This potential program would aim to develop ultrahigh temperature materials that would enable drastic improvements in gas turbine and aircraft engine efficiency as well as operating temperatures of nuclear reactors. Developing such ultrahigh temperature materials might be feasible today because of the availability of modern material research tools including multiscale modeling, machine learning, and in particular the advancement of manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing.

November 7, 2019 to November 8, 2019

The workshop convened leading experts in waste-to-energy, combustion, pyrolysis, and cement to identify technology approaches capable of significantly improving the consistency and value of ash from municipal solid waste incineration through pre- and post-combustion analytics, pre-combustion additives, combustion conditions, and ash processing. 

October 10, 2019 to October 11, 2019

The Rapid Encapsulation of Pipelines Avoiding Intensive Replacement Workshop (REPAIR) workshop sought to reduce costs for replacing bare steel and cast iron gas distribution pipes by fabricating new, “smart” pipes inside the old pipes using robotics, advanced composite materials, and new inspection tools.

September 26, 2019 to September 27, 2019

ARPA-E sought information regarding promising pathways toward improving the carbon-conversion efficiency of renewable feedstocks to products. This workshop explored opportunities to reduce the lifecycle carbon emissions from biofuel and bioproduct pathways through highly efficient directed flux of biomass carbon into products with minimal carbon loss as CO2. Workshop participants explored how inexpensive clean power can enable novel bioprocess designs that limit or completely avoid carbon loss during biomass conversion.

August 13, 2019 to August 14, 2019

Building on the ARPA-E ALPHA program and synergies with the Fusion Industry Association and the National Academies recommendation, ARPA-E is exploring opportunities for a potential new fusion program that is broader in R&D scope than ALPHA while pursuing the same vision as ALPHA: catalyze R&D pathways to lower the cost and accelerate the development time scale for commercially viable fusion energy.
