Award List:

Novel Composite Membrane for Space Life Supporting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Chung-Yi (Andy) Tsai, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Space life-supporting systems require effective removal of metabolic CO2 from the cabin atmosphere with minimal loss of O2. Conventional techniques, using either metal hydroxide or metal oxide sobent, require after-mission regeneration or replacement, thus putting a critical cap on mission… More

Novel Foul-Resistant Nano-Pervaporation Membrane for Medical Grade Water Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Chung-Yi Tsai, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Extended-duration spaceflight requires self-sustained patient care capable for the treatment of emergency medical conditions, thus requiring medical grade water to reconstitute pharmacological substances when needed. Conventional method to produce medical grade water is either energy inefficient or… More

Sulfur-Resistant, Ultrathin Dense Membrane for Production of High Purity Hydrogen

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Sandia National Lab
Principal Investigator: Chung-Yi Tsai, Dr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Alma Giron
Abstract:
The use of coal, a secure and economical energy source, to produce a clean hydrogen fuel with near-zero emission would support the domestic and global green economy. A membrane is the most economical approach to meet the challenges of this process. This project will develop a defect free membrane… More

SBIR Phase I: Sub-10 nm protective coating on high-temperature hydrogen purification membrane

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
