US-based QuesTek Innovations announced on 17 May that it had been awarded $1.1 million in Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE). The funding will be used to design, develop and qualify a novel materials solution and process for next generation molten salt reactors. This new Phase II project will focus on efficient and cost-effective cold spray processing of bimetallic structures, with refractory-based alloys (e.g., molybdenum) as a surface layer to provide corrosion resistance and high temperature stability on the surface of ASME-certified structural materials.
