Recovery Act - Scale-up of the Nano-Manufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials
This project will develop a high-throughput powder coating reactor to scale-up a process known to significantly improve the quality of battery materials, while using lean manufacturing techniques. This process is easily scalable, energy efficient and can ultimately be used to supplant coating processes in many industries where precision is paramount.

Recovery Act - Electromechanical Dewatering of Paper Pulp for Increased Energy Efficiency
This project will develop a novel process, electroosmotic-assisted mechanical dewatering, that reduces the energy requirement in paper production by as much as 40%. The process can be adopted by paper manufacturers without significant equipment modification, and enhances the global competitive position of U.S. papermakers.

Recovery Act - Developing an Agent-Based Distributed Smart Controller for Plug-in Electric Vehicles and Distributed Energy Resources
This project will develop intelligent software applications that provide plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) owners and grid operators with Smart Controllers that managing large numbers of PEVs on the grid, based on both local and grid conditions. The software will run at distributed locations on the energy network to improve the reliability, efficiency, security, and stability of the U.S. electrical transmission and distribution network.

Recovery Act - Brackish and Wastewater Cleanup for Process Cooling
This project will develop a technology that will permit fossil fuel and nuclear power plants, as well as petroleum refiners and other industries that use large amounts of cooling water to significantly reduce their demand for fresh water by using non-fresh water resources for cooling that are currently unsuitable because of their inherent levels of contamination.

Recovery Act - Production Scale-up of Nanoporous Carbons for Ultracapacitors
For ultracapacitors to be used as high-power energy sources for electric and hybrid vehicles, inexpensive nanoporous carbons (the key component of the devices) are needed. To reduce the cost of ultracapacitors, inexpensive sugars will be used to make nanoporous carbons that cost less and outperform the best materials currently available.

Recovery Act - Reactive Distillation Biodiesel Process
This project will develop a new process for making biodiesel that can use any oil or fat feedstock, including unrefined vegetable oils and waste greases. The use of low-cost feedstocks will reduce the price of biodiesel and expand the nation's production beyond what is possible from refined soybeans or canola.

Recovery Act - Economical Sequestering of Heavy Metals Dissolved in Acidic Water
This project will apply a developed relatively simple, economical and low capital intensive method of removing dissolved heavy metal contaminants from water. This method will be applied and optimized for process and waste waters generated by coal fired power plants enabling water recycling and reducing environmental pollution.
