Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Miller, Senior Engineer
Award Amount: $99,946.00
Abstract:
65575 A tremendous quantity of fossil fuels are consumed each year to heat and cool the country¿s commercial and residential buildings. The use of a renewable energy source, such as solar energy, could avoid both the economic and environmental penalties from high fossil fuel use. However, past… More

Fabrication of Polyimide Inertial Fusion Energy Target Capsules by a Fully Automated Process

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Andrew Lowenstein, President
Award Amount: $98,750.00
Abstract:
65251 Desiccants ¿ materials that have a strong affinity for water vapor ¿ can be an important part of an air conditioner that cools and dehumidifies the fresh air used to ventilate buildings. Their use would greatly improve indoor air quality by permitting the building ventilation rate to be… More

A High Efficiency Ventilation Air Conditioner for Residences

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Marc Sibilia
Award Amount: $99,659.00
Abstract:
72716S03-I Air conditioners now on the market are very poor at controlling indoor humidity. In some buildings, high indoor humidity creates health problems and leads to the growth of mold and mildew; in other buildings, energy is wasted as the building owner overcools the indoor space to try to… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Andrew Lowenstein, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,937.00
Abstract:
If CO2 could be scrubbed from the flue gas of power plants and safely sequestered, the country¿s most important source of electricity, fossil-fired power plants, could operate without emitting significant amounts of greenhouse gases. Although technology for scrubbing CO2 from the flue gas of a… More
