Award List:

Microbial Fuel Cells for Animal Manure Treatment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Matthew Silver, Chief Executive Officer
Award Amount: $78,720.00
The United States produces over 58 million tons of animal manure every year. These wastes pose a significant risk of environmental damage and human disease if not treated. However, most treatment methods are themselves either energy intensive or environmentally harmful. This Small Business… More

Bio-Electrochemical Systems for Ethanol Wastewater Treatment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Matt Silver
Award Amount: $46,770.00
Ethanol production for use as biofuel, which will grow to 166 billion liters worldwide by 2020, produces 3-5 liters of waste for every liter of ethanol. This waste contains significant amounts of stillage that is high in both total suspended solids (TSS) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), requiring… More

Energy Efficient BOD Removal and Denitrifcation for Recirculating Aquaculture Facilities with a Combined Bioelectrochemical Process

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Matthew R. Silver, PhD
Award Amount: $137,760.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project investigates a novel bioelectrochemical system for combined treatment of carbon and nitrogen in the wastewater of re-circulating and semi-re-circulating aquaculture facilities. The aquaculture industry is currently held-back by high… More

SBIR Phase I:Enhanced Anaerobic Digestion of Wastewater Using Bioelectrodes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Matthew R. Silver, PhD
Award Amount: $160,620.00
This SBIR Phase I project will develop an anaerobic digestion system which utilizes bio-electrodes to more efficiently convert wastewater into biogas and ultimately energy. Bio-electrochemical systems have received significant attention in recent years with the discovery of electricigen microbes… More

A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Justin Buck – (617) 330-1755
Award Amount: $80,000.00
"Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. … More

Mobile Bioelectric Filtration System (MBFS): Accelerated Anaerobic Digestion via Bio-Electrochemical Reactions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Patrick Kiely, Vice President of R&D – (617) 307-1755
Award Amount: $149,577.00
Current United States military contingency operations require more sustainable Forward Operating Bases (FOBs). Major problems for FOBs include the supply of fuel and water and the removal and treatment of wastewater. Microbial Fuel Cells and Bio-electrochemical systems utilize newly discovered… More
