Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Advancing a novel low-voltage electric arc method to oxidize organic material in contaminated water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mandar Sunthankar
Award Amount: $149,988.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project from Symbios Technologies LLC advances a novel plasma reactor method to oxidize organic matter in untreated water. This method has further potential to destroy harmful substances such as pesticides, pathogens, and some inorganics. A… More

Elimination of Biological Matter in Power Plant Cooling Water using Low Temperature Plasma

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Justin Bzdek, Mr. – 970-222-9178
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Cooling water systems in thermal power plants are notoriously difficult to maintain because they provide the ideal, warm environments for the growth of algae and bacteria. This biofouling can lead to corrosion and cracking of cooling pipes in heat exchangers. Conventionally, disinfection chemicals… More

Improved Cellulosic Biorefinery Economics via a Novel Catalytic Membrane Reactor for Biomass Hydrolysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: University of Arkansas
Principal Investigator: Ranil Wickramasinghe, Dr. – 479-575-8475
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact:
Five years ago, Congress set a goal of 500 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol produced in 2012. Although progress has been made, EPA has drastically reduced its 2012 U.S. production projection to only 8.65 million gallons. This huge shortfall is due to many factors, including high capital costs… More

SBIR Phase II: Advancing a Novel Low-voltage Electric Arc Method to Oxidize Organic Material in Contaminated Water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Justin Bzdek
Award Amount: $401,026.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will support the final development and commercialization of Symbios Technologies plasma treatment system to allow produced water in the oil and gas industry to be effectively treated, thereby allowing its safe discharge to surface… More
