The broader/commercial impacts of the project will be the reduction of exhaust fumes from diesel engines; the reduction in the interior use of metal for exhaust pollution devices; improvement in overall environmental air quality; and a resultant recycling of… more
Abstract:…ing material and thoria-plutonia fuel system will enhance passive safety at the heart of the reactor, will operate to higher burnups, thus reducing the amount of spent fuel and the burden on the US waste repository, and will enable the disposition of plutonium from recycle PWR… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to build a software platform for the creation and distribution of interactive learning content able to target a broad spectrum of learning styles. The proposed project will build recyclable software blueprints… more
Abstract:… individually. The current pretreatment methods are either energy intensive or cause severe degradation of the components. A more efficient pretreatment method for biomass fractionation is in great demand which requires low energy, modest conditions, and recyclable solvents.… more
Abstract:… a private, non-government entity, can also become a Sr-82 supplier, decreasing the manufacturing burden on the US government, through commercialization of patented LANL/DOE strontium-82 production technology. LANL has previously supplied Sr-82 as an API from the recycling… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) based on recycled carbon fiber. The approach is to produce LFTs using recycled chopped carbon fibers with two different polymer matrixes. One is… more
Abstract:… the targeted items for federal procurement. Current foam plastic packaging, based on petro/fossil feedstocks, presents a major disposal problem, as it is lightweight and bulky and so does not lend itself to a viable economic and environmentally responsible recycling operation… more
Abstract:…algae biomass after harvesting. The development of algae-based technologies is currently burdened by the inefficiency and high cost of processing the biomass. The proposed research will develop a method for reducing the cost of algae biomass processing by recycling waste energy… more
Abstract:… the waste as a resource, reducing its volume and producing useful energy or fuel from the waste decomposition process. Rather than incineration, which produces nothing of value, Adherent Technologies, Inc. (ATI) is proposing to extend its novel tertiary recycling process for… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will resolve the technical issues associated with scaling up the manufacturing of non-woven fabric composites made from a blend of coir fiber (from coconut husks) and recycled polypropylene. Final product… more
Abstract:…The broader/commercial impacts of the proposed project will include a reduction in the release of paints and paint sludges into the environment, reduction in the energy needed to achieve this in comparison with existing technologies, and the possibility of recycling the paint… more
Abstract:… advantage. For example, a lightweight and small volume underwater breathing apparatus (UBA) is required to supply combat divers with continuous breathing gas in the water A closed-circuit rebreather (CCR) that provides divers with breathable gas from recycled exhaled gas… more
Abstract:… an enzymatic cathode that will be evaluated and tested. Phase II will focus on optimizing the fuel cell design in order to maximize the specific power and cell lifetime without increasing the device weight, and investigating the possibility of recharging or recycling the spent… more
Abstract:… challenge regarding device manufacturing is the cost to manufacture the TMS acceptor material, which must be significantly reduced. The objective of this proposal is to reduce the manufacturing cost of TMS by developing a three phase AC arc reactor and helium recycling system… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a direct recycling process suitable for recovering and regenerating active materials from Li-ion cell waste streams and reincorporating those materials into low cost high performance Li-ion battery… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project will develop materials processing technologies to effectively utilize recycled carbon fiber (RCF) derived from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) thermoset wastes as fiber reinforcement in structural sheet molding… more
Abstract:…its as described by the awardee: The commercial benefits of the H2Pump device, in addition to simplifying hydrogen processing costs for the emerging alternative power generation applications, are realized in the immediate application of hydrogen recovery and recycling in… more
Abstract:… subsequent ionization in a magnetic field, and for this megaWatt peak powers are required. 6 This proposal describes a Fabry-Perot cavity which is capable of storing energy (stacking laser pulses) when resonant with the incident laser light. This power recycling multiplies… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is the design, fabrication, testing and evaluation of an affordable, efficient greywater recycling system for Army mobile field kitchens/sanitation centers. The proposed system utilizes enabling technology, a medialess continuously self-cleaning… more
Abstract:…eed similar to actions taken for cattle relative to mad cow disease. The biodegradable pots market survey is based on a specific need of the nursery industry. A major environmental issue currently facing the $11.2 Billion nursery and floriculture industry is the recycling and… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will convert (recycle) CO2 into useful and economically important by-products (i.e., industrial feed stocks) using a nano crystalline anatase (TiO2) photo catalyst with a high surface area. Anatase is a well known photo-catalyst. The co-founders of the… more
Abstract:… project begins with substantial reduction of the cost and environmental impact of magnesium metal production. Magnesium is the lowest-density engineering metal and third most abundant metal in the earth's crust, and its stiffness-to-weight, castability, and recyclability… more
Abstract:… determine whether a renewable material can be substituted in any proportion for peat, which is the current (non-renewable) "gold standard" for mushroom casing. Expansion by OCR into mushroom cultivation, using local materials, is a logical extension of OCR's current recycling… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
