Award List:

THERMOPHILIC MICROORGANISMS AS SOURCE OF HEAT STABLE OXIDASE AND PEROXIDASE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Joan Combie
Award Amount: $49,974.00

THERMOPHILIC MICROORGANISMS FOR COAL BIOSOLUBILIZATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Kenneth runnion
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Coal liquefaction technology has been developed to the stagewhere successful pilot plants are now in operation in the united states. however, economic and environmental concerns have curtailed plans for commercial ventures. by solubilizing oxidized coal with the help of… More

THERMOPHILIC MICROORGANISMS AS SOURCE OF HEAT STABLE OXIDASE AND PEROXIDASE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Joan Combie
Award Amount: $236,120.00
Abstract:
Enzymes of interest in chemical/biological defense, particulaly oxidases and peroxidases, would be more useful if they could withstand high temperatures and had a longer shelf life. thermally labile forms now available could be synthetically stabilized but this would be expensive. microorganisms… More

MICROBIAL REMOVAL OF ORGANIC SULFUR FROM COAL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Kenneth Runnion
Award Amount: $49,930.00
Abstract:
The u.s. possesses huge coal reserves, but sulfur dioxide (so2) released upon combustion is a major contributor to acid rain. significant advances have been made in the development of microbial processes for precombustion removalof inorganic sulfur from coal. thiobacillus and sulfolobus sp. have… More

Biotechnological Processes to Strip Polyurethane Paint from Naval Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kenneth Runnion
Award Amount: $50,000.00

Biotechnological Processes to Strip Polyurethane Paint from Naval Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kenneth Runnion
Award Amount: $319,500.00
Abstract:
1Certain microorganisms are capable of degrading polyurethane coatings. This feat is accomplished by enzymes normally produced by these microorganisms. But microbial paint stripping, an environmentally compatible alternative to chemical and physical paint stripping, is unacceptably slow. The rate of… More

Heat Stable Alkaline Phosphatase from Thermophiles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr. Joan Combie
Award Amount: $50,000.00

Heat Stable Alkaline Phosphatase from Thermophiles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr. Joan Combie
Award Amount: $380,631.00
Abstract:
Enzymes used as the label for most non-radioactive assays and in biosensors, are the most unstable component of these systems. As immunoassays and biosensors move from the tightly controlled laboratory environment to demanding field conditions, the need for a more stable enzyme becomes critical.… More
