Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Economical separation of heavy metals dissolved in acidic streams generated by industrial processes and mining operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Craig Sprain, PhD
Award Amount: $137,675.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will develop a relatively simple and economical method to separate heavy metals from acidic streams in industry and environmental operations. The project will use techniques for bonding chemicals to an activated carbon carrier to create a metal-ion binding material. These… More

Recovery Act - Economical Sequestering of Heavy Metals Dissolved in Acidic Water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Allen Quick, Dr.
Award Amount: $148,320.00
Abstract:
Heavy metals dissolved in the process and wastewaters generated by coal fired power plants present formidable costs and environmental risks. In addition, current practices to remediate or otherwise reclaim metal-laden wastewaters from electric power generation involve relatively impractical and/or… More

Recovery Act - Economical Sequestering & Immobilization of Heavy Metals - Means to Recycle Water and Reduce Pollution

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Allen Quick, Dr.
Award Amount: $998,940.00
Abstract:
As a result of electric power generation, tons of metal containing coal ash is land filled or contained in liquid impoundments in the US daily. Depending on the coal type, these residuals contain different types and amounts of heavy metals. Coal-fired power has left a legacy where coal ash has not… More
