Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Compacting Fly Ash to Make Bricks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Henry Liu, PI
Award Amount: $97,915.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new method to make bricks using fly ash, which is a byproduct or waste material generated at coal-fired power plants. This new method for making bricks is simple and effective. It uses pressure instead of high temperature… More

Biomass Log Fuel for Heating Farm Buildings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Henry Liu
Award Amount: $78,171.00
Abstract:
Due to large increase in the price of oil, propane, natural gas and electricity, the nations farmers are paying high costs for heating buildings. The problem can be mitigated by using biomass materials that exist, and are currently underutilized, on farms. This research seeks to develop a new… More

Machine to Densify Biomass into Tablets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Henry Liu, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Most biomass materials, such as switchgrass and corn stover, are very bulky (fluffy) when first collected,making them costly to handle, store, and transport. Current densification methods ¿ include baling, pelletizing, etc, ¿ are too costly, too energy-intensive, or both. A better method to… More
