New tweak on seawater uranium extraction, by charging the capture medium to collect more ions. Not totally passive compared to previous methods though as a result.

Keeping ship hulls free of marine organisms - Research News December 2012 - Topic 3
Interesting antifouling setup using variable low power current electrolysis of seawater via conductive hull paint to create changing local pH values, which annoys biofouling marine organisms enough to keep them from attaching themselves. Really useful for fiberglass yachts potentially, which frequently feature solar panels, though how that will change the corrosion aspects of other metal parts like propellers will be an issue.

Fueling the Fleet, Navy Looks to the Seas - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory
Pretty compact skid mounted synthetic jet fuel maker. Unfortunately, this is really only practical with an all electric ship/navy, particular ones powered by nuclear power. Well, unless ports allow docked oilers/ tankers to consume huge amounts of shore power...

7. Experimental Proof of Concept for an Electrochemical Plasma Thruster nstp-pathfinder-project-list.pdf (application/pdf Object)
Interesting self sustaining plasma thruster that in principle generates the power needed for plasma acceleration without a powerful external power source. I guess you use a wirefeed to feed in the aluminum wire/rod at the thruster core? Consumes oxygen gas, aluminum wire, and helium buffer gas (how much?)

Solar Thermal Electrochemical Photo (STEP) Carbon Capture could Reduce Atmospheric CO2 to Pre-industrial Levels in Ten Years
Using an externally electrically driven molten lithium carbonate cell to crack CO2 down to C or CO, CO being fed into synthetic fuel processes, C for solid state long term sequestration/storage or as nanotube feedstock. Uses Solar CPV with thermal recovery to heat the cells and drive them electrically. Absolutely no mention of how the CO2 would be captured for input into the electrolysis cell (basically the same as a MSFC fuelcell, only without the hydrogen fuel) though.

Planar Energy - Powering Possibilities
University of Central Florida says the ionic conductivity is comparable to liquid electrolytes, so there is potential to create solid state batteries with triple the performance of current lithium ion batteries at half the cost.
