Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Selective Chemical Probes for Measurement of Flotation Collector Reagents in Sulfidic Ore Beneficiation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jon D. Thompson, PhD
Award Amount: $99,900.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will research and develop selective chemical probes for use in froth flotation systems. Sulfide mineral froth flotation is a solid-solid separations process which dominates all other methods used in the mining industry to purify a target… More

Principal Investigator: Jon D. Thompson, PhD
Award Amount: $516,000.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project addresses unmet analysis needs of froth flotation, a separations process widely used in the mining industry to separate worthless gangue from desired mineral particles. Phase I work has demonstrated the preparation of sensor membranes… More

SBIR Phase II: In situ PFC Monitoring Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Chunze Lai
Award Amount: $499,869.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses the analysis needs for monitoring perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) in water. PFOA and PFOS are ubiquitous environmental contaminants that have been found at low concentrations in waste… More
