Company: TDA Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: EPA / SBIR / 2010 / 1
Abstract: This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting biomass waste into diesel fuel. The diesel made from biomass will be a direct substitute for ultra low-sulfur diesel (defined by ASTM D 975). The biomass waste will first be converted into pyrolysis oil and then upgraded to… more
Company: TDA Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2010 / 1
Abstract: The U.S. needs reliable and clean energy sources for sustainable economic growth and a secure future. Currently 40% of U.S. power is produced from pulverizied coal-fired boilers.

Company: TDA Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2010 / 1
Abstract: The U.S. has estimated 24 billion tonnes of coal, which at current rates of consumption is enough to last about 200 years. The general problem is how to prevent the 80+ billions tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere when using this resource. One way to decrease the amount… more
Company: TDA Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2010 / 2

Search Options

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.
