Award List:

STTR Phase I: Self-Reinforced Composites Made of Immiscible Polymers from Recycled Products

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: GA Inst of Tech
Principal Investigator: F. Daniel L. Tsai, Dr
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Donggang L. Yao
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project explores the technical feasibility and commercial potential of an innovative process for converting immiscible polymer wastes into self-reinforced high-performance composites. The process entails creating fibers with sheath/core… More

STTR Phase I: Precision Polymer Microprofile Extrusion with a Conformal Fluidic Control Environment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: GA Inst of Tech
Principal Investigator: F. Daniel E. Tsai, Dr
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Donggang A. Yao
Abstract:
The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will control the shape of microextruded polymers (microprofiles) using a sheath fluid at the exit of the extruder. Microprofiles are defined as continuous filaments having a non-circular cross-section with precision… More

STTR Phase II: Self-Reinforced Composites Made of Immiscible Polymers from Recycled Products

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corporation-GA Tech Research Institute
Principal Investigator: F. Daniel Tsai, PhD
Award Amount: $500,000.00
RI Contact: Donggang Yao
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is seeking to develop and commercialize a novel method for recycling immiscible polymer (IP) wastes into value-added products. In this new method, the IP waste is converted into highly-orientated filaments with a surface of a relatively… More

Modular Lightweight Armor System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: F. Tsai, President & CTO
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Novana is developing an innovative nanocomposite based material with unique and significant anti-ballistic properties. This material can not only absorb high impact projectile piercing energy but it is also lighter and less expensive than traditional anti-ballistic materials. Contrary to the current… More
