Norsepower's Rotor Sail technology, which can be installed on new vessels or retrofitted on existing ships, is a modernized version of the Flettner rotor -- a spinning cylinder that uses the Magnus effect to harness wind to propel a ship. The solution is fully automated and senses whenever the wind is strong enough to deliver fuel savings, at which point the rotors start automatically.
Since its establishment in November 2012, Norsepower has raised more than $24 million of funding since its founding in 2012.

The CarbonCure Technology enhances the competitiveness of the concrete industry through improved production efficiency and sustainability. The technology injects a precise dosage of captured waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete during production. Once introduced, the CO2 chemically converts to a nano-mineral, creating manufacturing efficiencies while reducing the concrete's carbon footprint.
The CarbonCure Technology is presently installed in nearly 150 concrete plants in North America and Southeast Asia, with more than 2.3 million cubic meters of concrete supplying a wide range of construction projects from airports, roads to high-rise towers.
CarbonCure, the world leader in carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technology used in the production of concrete, is on a pathway to reduce 500 megatons of CO2 emissions annually.
CarbonCure technology is estimated to be a $400 billion market opportunity with the potential to reduce up to 1.4 gigatons of annual CO2 emissions by 2030, according to the Global CO2 Initiative. (Source: CarbonCure, PR, 8 Aug., 2019)

The Sierra BioFuels Plant will employ Praxair's proprietary HOB technology for increasing syngas yield from the gasification process. HOB technology enables rapid partial oxidation of remaining hydrocarbons and tars in the produced syngas without the need for a catalyst or steam injection. The HOB technology, coupled with gasification in Fulcrum's process, will help transform municipal solid waste (MSW) into renewable crude, jet fuel, and other low-carbon transportation fuels.

The research team previously demonstrated concentration of microwaves using a cylindrical device that comprised a set of thin metal sheets extended radially outward from the cylinder axis. The channels between the sheets perpendicular to the axis directed waves inward and boosted the central wave amplitude.
The researchers envision a similar submurged and anchored structure for water waves. The central open region of the structure is surrounded by vertical walls that are taller than the waves and extended radially outward, similar to the microwave device, to focus and amplify the wave energy. The research was published in Physical Review Letters on September 07, 2018. (Source: Xiamen University, Coherent Chronicle, 15 Oct., 2018) Contact: Xiamen University, en.xmu.edu.cn

The produced hydrogen is liquefied and transported via truck to California fueling stations where it is "re-gasified" and compressed before being dispensed.
The LCFS currently has 14 certified pathways for hydrogen, with CIs ranging from 165.88 gCO2e/MJ (Linde Canada production of hydrogen from central reforming of natural gas), to 0 (hydrogen production via electrolysis using solar electricity) to -46.91 (landfill gas to on-site hydrogen production via cracking of methane).

This FOA will address the cost and operational challenges associated with current CO2 capture technologies that are commercially available for industry, providing for additional development to these technologies at coal-fired power plants. Some of the challenges that will be addressed include a need to improve the reliability and operational flexibility; reduce high capital costs; and reduce the high-energy penalty associated with operating existing technology.
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will manage the selected projects, which will concentrate on transformational technologies focused on: developing transformational materials and processes for CO2 capture that will enable step-change reductions in the capital and energy cost; and enabling technologies that facilitate improved performance of transformational CO2 capture processes to reduce capital cost and energy penalties, and improve operational reliability and flexibility.
