Award List:

Non-Destructive Test Method for Rapid Determination of the Chemical Composition of Concrete in Field

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DOT
Principal Investigator:
Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-9583
Abstract:
While thorough assessment of concrete chemistry is vital to evaluating the health of (transportation) infrastructure systems, the costly and time-consuming nature of available chemical analysis methods limit their applications. A nondestructive test method will be developed for thorough evaluation… More

SBIR Phase I: Economically Viable High-Performance Concrete Nanocomposites

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will make complementary use of relatively low-cost graphite nanomaterials and conventional microfibers to realize balanced gains in diverse engineering properties of high-performance concrete. The targeted nanomaterials offer most of the… More

First Generation of Controlled-Release Bacteriocins/Anti-Microbials

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,969.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-1402
Abstract:
Food safety has become an increasingly important international concern; it is also a critical issue for the Warfighter who is encountering growing bioterrorism and proliferation of foodborne illnesses. Biopreservation is a technique used to increase shelf life and food safety through natural,… More

Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,999.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-9583
Research Institution:
Michigan State University
RI Contact:
Gladys Raymond
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the… More

Tailoring Cementitious Materials Towards Value-Added Use of Large CO2 Volumes

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Jue Lu, Dr.
Abstract:
Carbon capture and storage is generally considered as a crucial component of any U.S. strategy for addressing the climate change problem. Carbon dioxide can be stored underground in geologic formations, or permanently bound into some abundant minerals via carbonation reactions. These options have… More

Corrosion Resistant Prestressing Strand for Prestressed Concrete Bridges

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DOT
Principal Investigator:
Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-9583
Abstract:
Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing… More
