Businesses awarded cover a wide array of technologies from making biofuels in fundamentally new ways, concentrating and purifying critical metals and rare earth elements ,producing sustainable aviation fuels and renewable diesel, and developing data center cooling systems.
SEED projects aim to create new paradigms in energy technology and have the potential to increase U.S. energy efficiency, reduce energy imports, or cut energy emissions. Awardees are intended to establish potential new areas for technology development and provide ARPA-E with information that could lead to new focused funding programs.
