Combinatorial Development of Chitosan-Based Drilling Fluid Additives

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Andre' Blanchard
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop chitosan-derivatives through proprietary chemistries for use as additives in oil and gas drilling fluids. For this specific application, it is important to tailor the viscoelastic properties of the chitosan… More

SBIR Phase II: Combinatorial Development of Chitosan-Based Drilling Fluid Additives

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Andre' Blanchard, PI
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase II project proposes to use simple chemistries to develop biopolymer derivatives based on chitosan with controlled macromolecular architectures for oil and gas drilling applications. This Phase II project will focus on the following objectives : (1) Show how chemistries common in food… More

The Hermetia System (Commercial Potential of the Black Soldier Fly: A cost Effective and Value Added Solution to Manure Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Andre` 1. Blanchard
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Combined animal feeding operations generate low value manure which cannot be economically transported more than a few miles and cannot be used locally at proper agronomic rates. Local nutrient overload then occurs, potentially resulting in odors, lowered water quality and pest insects; depending on… More
