Award List:

High Yield, High Efficiency Bio-Refining

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John L. Massingill, President
Award Amount: $79,966.00
Abstract:
Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil… More

Sealant Application Process and Technology Development

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: John L. Massingill, Jr., President
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Advanced Materials & Processes (AMP) has identified a viable approach for applying Class B or C sealants that will meet quality criteria for thickness, porosity, continuity, and application time. The project will develop a rapid dispensing process for consistent application of the minimum weight of… More

Development of a Fire-Resistant, Thermal Barrier Coating with Low-Temperature Flexibility

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: TEXAS STATE UNIV.-SAN MARCOS
Principal Investigator: John Massingill, President
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Billy C. Covington
Abstract:
Advanced Materials and Processes (AMP) can deliver a Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) with low temperature flexibility. This is possible because of a major breakthrough in hollow clay nanotube technology. Halloysite nanotubes (HNTT) have been shown to increase coating flexibility an order of… More

STTR PHASE I: Ultra-High Efficiency Biodiesel Manufacturing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Texas State University - San Marcos
Principal Investigator: John L. Massingill, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Sreenivasulu R Venumbaka
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project research seeks to change the paradigm that chemical reactions need mechanical mixing. Innovative Fiber Reactors (FR) offer a 100X change in efficiency of chemical and biochemical manufacturing while eliminating dispersions. This research… More

STTR Phase II: Ultra-High Efficiency Biodiesel Manufacturing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Texas State University- San Marcos
Principal Investigator: John L. Massingill, PhD
Award Amount: $461,786.00
RI Contact: Billy Covington
Abstract:
This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase II project will change the paradigm that two-phase chemical reactions must use mechanical mixing to be commercially effective. The innovative Fiber… More

Development of a Fire-Resistant, Thermal Barrier Coating with Low-Temperature Flexibility

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Texas State University San Marcos
Principal Investigator: John Massingill, President
Award Amount: $749,620.00
RI Contact: Sreenu Venumbaka
Abstract:
The purpose of this STTR Phase II project is to continue research and development on novel fire resistant thermal barrier coatings (TBC) with low temperature flexibility. Polyurethane coatings are the most important segment of aircraft coatings. Excellent

Thermally Stable Machine Gun Barrel

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: John Massingill, President
Award Amount: $99,997.00
Abstract:
The objective of this SBIR Phase I project is to produce a tough protective nanocomposite ceramic lining for machine gun barrels to reduce weapon system acquisition costs through service life extension, reduction in parts consumption & failure rates, reduction in weapon weight, reduced corrosion,… More
