CX-007725: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Northeastern University - Multiscale Development of L 10 Materials for Rare-Earth-Free Permanent Magnets
CX(s) Applied: A9, B3.6
Date: 12/06/2011
Location(s): New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, Nebraska
Offices(s): Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy

Funding will support the development of an ultra-strong ferromagnetic magnet material with a tetragonal L 10 structure, that does not contain rare earth materials and is designed for use in clean energy technologies such as electric vehicle motors and wind turbine generators. Northeastern University's application was selected for an initial 18-month period (Phase 1) of funding. The ARPA-E Program Director may decide to negotiate and fund project activities for an additional 18-month period (Phase II) after evaluating the work performed in Phase I. ARPA-E has not obligated funds or negotiated a scope of work for Phase II at this time. Accordingly, this categorical exclusion determination form addresses only the activities that will occur in Phase I of this project.
