Sootless, Alternatively-Fueled Heavy Duty Engine
The ClearFlame Engine simultaneously delivers higher torque, cleaner emissions, and lower fuel costs than current heavy-duty engines, while using inexpensive, renewable fuels. This means heavy-duty vehicles and off-grid/backup generators can continue providing benefits to industry and quality of life, while avoiding the hazardous pollution and petroleum-dependence of current engines.

Web-based Tool to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Coal Power Plants
This technology aims to increase public awareness of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for energy production and how emissions can be lowered by co-firing biomass in power plants. The innovative web-based expert decision support system includes integrated models that captures the trade-offs between operational costs and GHG emissions.
PEM Fuel Cell Bundle (multi-lab IP bundle - LabBridge IP Bundling Program)
29 nine proton exchange membrane fuel cells technologies from five different National Labs are available to form bundles to collectively increase their value proposition for the potential licensees or collaborators. Technologies fall into 4 categories, (i) fuel cell electrocatalysts, (ii) membrane electrode assembly, (iii) fuel processor, and (iv) bipolar plates.
Carbon Fiber Bundle (multi-lab IP bundle - LabBridge IP Bundling Program)
This bundling opportunity showcases a combination of NREL's biological utilization of lignin and metabolic funneling to C-fiber with ORNL's chemical approach to lignin separation and downstream processing to C-Fiber.
Princeton Field Reversed Configuration (PFRC) Fusion Reactor
The PFRC Nuclear Fusion Reactor is a revolutionary approach to fusion power generation. The reactor is small and clean, producing very few damaging neutrons and enabling rapid development at relatively low cost. The 1-10 MW reactors are suitable for diverse applications, from submarines to urban environments to space propulsion.
A Method and Device for Secure, High-density Tritium Bonded with Carbon
INL created novel method and device for secure, high-density storage of tritium. The high-density tritium is bonded with carbon by irradiating an intercalated precursor into tritium bonded with carbon in a substrate. Existing solutions to safely secure tritium result in low-density tritium, minimizing tritiumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s potential as significant energy source.
