Award List:

Biofilm Remediation for Restoration of Contaminated Army Sites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Jason Caplan, President & Chief Scient.
Award Amount: $69,496.00
Abstract:
A number of U.S. Army sites are contaminated with recalcitrant chemicals such as trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and various explosives (i.e., TNT). Bioremediation is the use of microorganisms to eliminate or reduce theconcentrations of hazardous materials from… More

Shipboard Biomechanical Oil Water Separator

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Jason Caplan, President and Chief Scien
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
"Traditional Oil Water Separators (OWS) on ships have beenunreliable in processing emulsified oils in bilgewater.Oil/Water separation has become more difficult in recent years,with the newer generation of ships with drier bilges, and thus ahigher concentration of oil, detergents, and chemical wastes… More

Bio-Remediation of Hydrocarbons on Inactive Ships

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard L. Penny, Manager of Maritime Opera
Award Amount: $69,940.00
Abstract:
The Navy is seeking a means of removing hydrocarbons from inactive ships prior to ship dismantling or sinking as an artificial reef. Traditional means of separation of oil from aqueous solutions are unreliable in processing emulsified oils and organic chemicals. Filtration, chemical flocculation,… More

Bio-Remediation of Hydrocarbons on Inactive Ships

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard L. Penny, Manager of Maritime Opera
Award Amount: $599,941.00
Abstract:
Vessels of all types have a limited useful life and must ultimately be dismantled or scuttled as artificial reefs, with wastes properly disposed. The Navy is seeking a means of removing hydrocarbons from inactive ships prior to ship dismantling or sinking as an artificial reef. The Phase I project… More

SBIR Phase II: Biological Treatment of Hydrocarbons in Shipboard Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Richard L. Penny
Award Amount: $445,278.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will address new regulations being enacted in the shipping industry requiring Sulfur Oxides (SOx) reduction from engine emissions. Many commercial scrubber systems effectively remove SOx from engine emissions, yet none are designed to… More
