Julia, 

I contacted the PI (Ira Bloom) and here is his update on this project: 

Greg: It took a while to get the CRADA paperwork in place. The CRADA was fully executed on 4/18/2017. We received the initial samples for characterization from NEAH Power. The samples were shipped to us on 5/26/2017 and were received in June. The baseline material was characterized in terms of microstructure; these results were shared with NEAH by e-mail and discussed with them on a phone call on 7/10/2017. We continue to characterize their materials and should have more results to share with them by the end of the week. --Ira 

So, it looks like things are now on track and the project is underway.

BOTHELL, Washington, August 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: NPWZ, NEAH POWER) an emerging leader in high density rechargeable lithium metal battery storage solutions for defense, commercial, and consumer applications, is pleased to announce that it won a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy through the Small Business Vouchers Pilot Program. http://energy.gov/technologytransitions/articles/energy-department-awards-43-new-business-laboratory-collaborations

The NEAH PowerChip(R) Battery is the first battery to be made with high volume capable microchip manufacturing technology in semiconductor facilities (foundries) throughout the world. NEAH and numerous electrochemical engineers worldwide envision this new NEAH Battery architecture as transformative as it will change the way batteries are made, used and perform. The proprietary architecture of the PowerChip(R) Battery brings batteries into the microchip era, using the same manufacturing technologies that made television sets, cell phones, laptops and a variety of devices more compact with superior performance at lower cost. While initially targeted for consumer oriented applications, the battery technology could be used for automotive and defense applications as well.

Dr. Chris D'Couto, President & CEO of NEAH said, "We look forward to working closely with Argonne National Laboratory, which is uniquely qualified to characterize the performance metrics associated with our unique battery architecture. This unique 3D architecture using lithium metal anodes enables more than five times the performance of batteries in production today. We at NEAH believe that the characterization of the battery by Argonne National Laboratory will further enhance the performance and manufacturability of the battery. It will also help us understand the most critical electrochemical reactions. This DOE/Argonne relationship will provide advanced technology learnings, leapfrogging what would be possible in a privately held laboratory.

Markets

Three Avenues for Commercialization 
The shift from research entity to commercial status might be happening faster than most people might 
realize. 
The Company has three immediate areas of commercial focus. The company has entered into a 
commercial arrangement with the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of India. 
Shipments have already been made and the scale of this initial contract could reach $14 million. India is 
looking at the PowerChip™ as a means of providing power to individual soldiers. 
A second product area, aimed primarily for the retail markets, uses the company’s formic acid technology 
as a variation on the PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) process for its suite of battery recharging 
products serving the portable electronic markets (BuzzBar™ Suite). The nature of the company’s design 
and technology capabilities, however, gives it great flexibility in developing all manner of device 
applications depending on the need and scope of the customer. 
The Company has entered into memorandums of understanding (MOUs) to deploy the formic acid 
technology into drones and other off-grid power solutions. The modular design would provide a lot of 
flexibility to adapt the technology to these various applications which serve a variety of markets

Dr. Chris D'Couto's company specializes in micro electric power systems: backup batteries that recharge your cellphone, tiny micro fuel cells, and now a reformer that converts formic acid, the key ingredient in ant venom, into hydrogen gas for running up to 5 kW fuel cells.

 

The public relations company wondered if I'd be interested in learning more about a company called Neah Power, based in Bothwell, Washington. Besides their micro fuel cell based BuzzBar and BuzzCell battery technology, they are working on a fuel cell system that runs off of formic acid.

Formic acid?

Before I agreed, I decided to first find out what formic acid is. It sounded dangerous.

Turns out it is one of the more benign chemicals made up of two hydrogen atoms that bookend a carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Its chemical designation is HCOOH. As Wikipedia noted, it is a natural chemical that ants produce for their venom. It's also used to preserve cattle silage, among its other industrial applications.

Maybe best of all, it can be produced by a renewable process that recycles CO2 out of the atmosphere via plant biomass. Joan Slonczewski notes on her blog that the bacterium Acetobacterium woodii can be stimulated to convert dangerous carbon monoxide found in syngas into formic acid, a clear liquid that can be shipped and stored like any liquid fuel.

recycling process to make formic acid

Using formic acid as a 'fuel' is where Neah Power comes into the picture. Besides their battery and micro fuel cell technology, the company last year acquired a firm that developed a reformer that rips apart the formic acid molecule, separating the two hydrogen atoms from the carbon and oxygen atoms. Those hydrogen atoms can then be fed into a fuel cell, including their own micro fuel cell to generate electric power. While the company is mainly focused on sub-kilowatt energy applications, it has developed some experimental units capable of outputting up to five kW.

According to Dr. Chris D'Couto, Neah Power's CEO and the featured guest in the interview below, a five kilowatt hour fuel cell running off a tank of liquid formic acid would be configured to trickle charge an electric vehicle's battery, allowing it, like the gasoline engine generator in the BMW i3 REx, to offer extended range capability. Unlike the i3 REx, the only tailpipe emission would be water vapor and CO2.

Would a Neah Power Fuel Cell make a car more expensive, less expensive or the same?

We like to think that a Neah Power Fuel Cell powered automobile would make a car less expensive on any number of measures including upfront cost, maintence costs, as well as total cost of ownership - however that would be an issue that would play out with the automotive manufacturers.

How quickly would Neah be able to provide a fuel cell for say a number one auto company like Toyota?

Neah Power has functional units in a variety of configurations that would be appropriate for automotive applications.  The balance of system and integration of the fuel cell into the electronics would be a joint development process with the identified automobile company.   As such, the successful approach is to characterize the fuel cell, have a specific application development program followed by production and product sales.

Is there an intense manufacturing process involved in scaling up production of fuel cells for automotive applications? What kind of infrastructure is required and what kind of jobs would result?

There is not an intense manufacturing process involved in scale up production of Neah Power Fuel Cells.  The scaling of production is a matter of electronics assembly and plastics injection molding similar to that of other electronic assemblies, 

The value proposition that Neah Power can offer is higher energy densities and lower costs, offering a safe and effective solution and eliminating range and power issues associated with electric vehicles.  Neah Power becomes the enabler allow electric hybrid vehicles to go mainstream.

(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - In a world that values 24/7 connectivity, consumers are quickly learning that technology and the demands we place on it do not necessarily align. Think about it: technology requires power, but energy sources that are currently available can't possibly meet our needs. But what if they could? Imagine charging your cell phone or tablet weekly instead of daily or multiple times per day. Or driving an electric car for 1,000 miles instead of 260 before needing a recharge. That's the question that set Washington-based NEAH Power Systems Inc., on the path to finding a solution to power everything from your laptop to your tablet to your car. And the answer, says the company, may be closer than you think. At the heart of its products is the PowerChip Battery -- a dynamic new energy technology that has applications for consumer, commercial and automotive clients, to solve specific power requirements. Unlike other new-age battery concepts, the NEAH battery uses only standard battery components that are found in existing batteries used today -- just used differently. NEAH has 15 patents and 11 pending patent applications for, among others, the use of silicon substrates for fuel cells and batteries. In NEAH's PowerChip Battery, the company is building a rechargeable lithium battery in a 3-D architecture, using industry standard materials that provide high density (energy per unit weight or per unit volume), and can address the safety concerns typically seen in lithium -- ion batteries. NEAH is already building samples for field testing for its first customer. "We use our patented porous silicon 3D architectures to maximize power. This is the first truly new battery design in the past 50 years that is manufactureable by using older-generation computer chip manufacturing equipment. We have seen tremendous improvements with Moore's law in semiconductors, and this battery brings similar economies of scale to the battery landscape as well. We finally have a battery capable of delivering the portable and wearable power required to maximize the 24x7 needs of our interconnected life." says NEAH's CEO, Dr. Chris D'Couto, "Our company goal was to not only make batteries lighter, smaller and more powerful, but to make them more affordable than traditional batteries. People are tired of having to recharge their smart phones during their daily activities." Because of this cutting-edge technology, NEAH caught the attention of Tritente of Alexandria, Va., a Global Energy and Micro-Data Center company Tritente recently said it plans to deploy greater than $20 million of NEAH's PowerChip batteries in their projects in Africa, Europe and the Caribbean. By using NEAH's high-capacity energy generation and storage products, Tritente is able to bring the Artilium-Africa Micro-Data Center technologies to third-world population centers without a 24/7 grid system. "We chose NEAH because its next -generation energy storage system is powerful, cost effective and compatible with Tritente's $6 billion plan to deploy renewable energy in Africa and to bring the Artilium-Africa solution to every African country mobile operation, educational institution, government entities, and every cell phone holder," says Paul Delkaso, chief executive officer of Tritente and managing partner of Artilium-Africa. Currently, Artrillium-Africa expects to have between 10 to 20 data centers throughout each country throughout Africa. Most will be powered by renewable energy and will include NEAH's MicroChip next-generation energy storage system. While information about other products is currently on the www.neahpower.com website, due to various pending patent developments, the company is providing information on its battery within the constraints of a non-disclosure agreement, and interested parties are requested to contact the company at: info@neahpower.com.

Artilium to Expand in Africa in Partnership with Tritente Global Energy Group

Artilium plc, the AIM quoted provider of innovative telecommunication software and solutions, announces that it is partnering with Tritente Global Energy Group to launch Artilium-Africa  in order to meet the demand for data and telecom services in the fastest growing continent in the world.

The partnership is intended to bring Artilium’s 3G-4G mobile data service, cloud and innovative telecom services to the African market. Artilium Africa has started to acquire a value added services license in Ethiopia and is already in discussions with a number of potential customers for the provision of specific services in that country.

Artilium’s disruptive micro-data center is an ideal solution to distribute telecom services throughout Africa where 1.3 billion people reside. Artilium already serves 50 telco brands such as T-Mobile and 10 million users in 20 countries with its services, but as yet none based in Africa. 

Bart Weijermars, Chief Executive Officer of Artilium said:

“Tritente is the perfect platform for Artilium to expand into Africa, which is in the early stages of the data and telecom revolution. Tritente is leading $6 billion of projects in renewable energy and power transmission in Sub Saharan Africa. They can open avenues in dozens of the 52 Sub Saharan countries”.

Paul Delkaso, CEO of Tritente and Managing Partner of Artilium-Africa said:

“Our plan is to bring the Artilium-Africa solution to every African country mobile operator, MVNO business, educational institution, Government entities and every cell phone holder”. Mr. Delkaso who is based in the Washington DC area is in Africa to establish operations in the first of six countries.

 

In contrast to the traditional large-scale mega data centers, which consume massive electricity, Artilium-Africa expects to have 10-20 times more energy-efficient, micro-data centers spread throughout each country. Most will be powered by renewable energy and include next-generation energy storage.

Business update: 

NEAH was invited to participate in the White House briefing on Feb 17. We have had various commercialization and capitalization discussions occur based on the networking at that event. As a direct result of attending the White House conference on Climate Change, we have been invited to attend three USTDA Reverse Trade Missions Focused on Energy Storage. The delegates are senior officials from South Africa, Jordon, Brazil, Colombia, India, the Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam. 
I recently visited the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to explore certain licensing relationships to implement manufacturing and other partnership agreements. There is tremendous interest with the entities I met with to develop UAE into a renewable energy focused hub. We continue to explore and to finalize a mutually beneficial business relationship here. 
We are in discussions with the Economic Development Authority of State in the USA regarding relocating to that State to enable their focus on renewable energy and battery storage. We expect this to get finalized in Q2 2016. 
We continue to make progress on the previously announced MOU with a South Africa entity. We are in almost daily discussions with them, and are targeting an agreement with them by end of Q2 2016. This will provide a key production pathway for meeting our customer needs. 
We have been negotiating a licensing agreement with an entity in India for the BuzzBar Suite and the Formira HOD products. India has been identified as one of the fastest growing markets for off-grid power, and this relationship can enable NEAH products to serve this region. 
We have been negotiating a Formira HOD licensing with a group in Taiwan for the Greater China Region. Similar to India, the demand for off-grid power is significant, and continuing to grow in this region. This licensee partner is expected to visit us in the near future which will enable us to complete the anticipated transaction. 
Our discussions with the DRDO are ongoing, and we expect to schedule a visit in Q2 2016. 
We plan to submit for two separate grants for certain DOE funding with a National Laboratory in the US during the next 30 days. 
Finally, the PowerChip® Battery continues to get tremendous interest from consumers and commercial entities. We are negotiating preliminary orders for this product, and due to the outsourced manufacturing model, we believe we can manufacture this very capital efficiently 
While our capitalization situation is very challenging, the management is diligently working to complete various capitalization and commercialization activities that will help unlock the potential of the Company. We are pursuing licensing agreements initially since that would enable licensee partners to create manufacturing infrastructure to meet their needs but also the needs of NEAH. 

Thank you for your continued support, and best regards, 

Chris D’Couto 
President & CEO

Grant to give boost to battery developed by Neah Power

 

Neah Power Systems was chosen by the U.S. Department of Energy to work with Argonne National Laboratory to increase the capacity and manufacturability of its rechargeable lithium-metal battery.

The relationship will help the company’s technology leapfrog, said Chris D’Couto, Neah Power’s president and CEO.

Neah Power will work with the laboratory near Chicago for a year. The laboratory time and expertise is valued at $300,000.

Neah Power was based in Bothell, but is relocating to Edmonds. The batteries are manfuctured in Beaverton, Oregon. The company is developing a high-density, rechargeable lithium metal battery called Neah PowerChip Battery for defense, commercial and consumer uses.

The unique architecture using lithium metal and porous silicon is making the battery five times more powerful than batteries in production today, D’Couto said.

Theoretical modeling of the battery shows that it should be producing even more energy storage and output than it already does, D’Couto said.

With assistance of the national laboratory, Neah Power hopes to identify the changes that need to be made so the practical application matches up with the theoretical modeling.

There’s long been a search to build a better battery that can store and produce more energy and “live forever and cost nothing,” said Ira Bloom, senior chemist and group leader at Argonne National Laboratory.

He pointed to the carbon zinc batteries at hardware stores, noting how they come in many shapes and sizes. He said changing the battery’s chemistery also changes everything.

“It’s a scientific discipline, but how you make it can be an art form,” Bloom said. “Once you figure out how to produce it, it’s very re-produceable.”

He said he’s unfamiliar with Neah’s PowerChip, but looks forward to working on it.

“It presents an interesting challenge, no question about it,” Bloom said. “I hope everybody learns from this project.”

The PowerChip Battery is already generating interest.

Neah Power has a deal with Santa Rosa, California,-firm Liquid Image to produce 100 batteries for wearable police body cameras. Those batteries are expected to hold enough charge for 13 hours instead of four hours with current standard rechargeable batteries, D’Couto said.

If testing is successful, Liquid Image wants to buy 200,000 PowerChip Batteries.

This type of battery technology could also be used for the increasing number of electric vehicles, D’Couto said. And that could extend the range for electric cars by hundreds of miles.

The design uses the same manufacturing technologies that made television sets, cell phones and laptops more compact and capable, D’Couto said.

So it could be manufactured at existing semiconductor foundries around the world.

This type of battery technology could also be used for the increasing number of electric vehicles, D’Couto said. And that could extend the range for electric cars by hundreds of miles.

The design uses the same manufacturing technologies that made television sets, cell phones and laptops more compact and capable, D’Couto said.

New Neah Patent.....in Tiawian
http://twpat6.tipo.gov.tw/tipotwoc/

                                       This is a 1000X magnified photograph of a cross-section of a single micro battery. A typical consumer device would have a few million of these and store 5X more energy than traditional batteries.


Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTC: NPWZ) an emerging leader in high density rechargeable lithium metal battery storage solutions for defense, commercial, and consumer applications, is pleased to announce that it won a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy through the Small Business Vouchers Pilot Program. http://energy.gov/technologytransitions/articles/energy-department-awards-43-new-business-laboratory-collaborations

The NEAH PowerChip® Battery is the first battery to be made with high volume capable microchip manufacturing technology in semiconductor facilities (foundries) throughout the world. NEAH and numerous electrochemical engineers worldwide envision this new NEAH Battery architecture as transformative as it will change the way batteries are made, used and perform. The proprietary architecture of the PowerChip® Battery brings batteries into the microchip era, using the same manufacturing technologies that made television sets, cell phones, laptops and a variety of devices more compact with superior performance at lower cost. While initially targeted for consumer oriented applications, the battery technology could be used for automotive and defense applications as well.

Dr. Chris D'Couto, President & CEO of NEAH said, "We look forward to working closely with Argonne National Laboratory, which is uniquely qualified to characterize the performance metrics associated with our unique battery architecture. This unique 3D architecture using lithium metal anodes enables more than five times the performance of batteries in production today.  We at NEAH believe that the characterization of the battery by Argonne National Laboratory will further enhance the performance and manufacturability of the battery. It will also help us understand the most critical electrochemical reactions. This DOE/Argonne relationship will provide advanced technology learnings, leapfrogging what would be possible in a privately held laboratory.
