The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  2. Continuous Production of "Drop-in" Biofuels and Biochemicals via Catalytic Hydrothermal Conversion of Agricultural Residue Fats and Oils

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 88

    Waste, non-food biomass has little value and is often sent to landfill. Methods to convert this mass into value-added compounds deserve attention, especially ones that lead to biofuels and biochemicals that historically are only obtained from non-renewable petroleum sources. A novel catalytic process which operates using recyclable supercritical water will be used to produce bioproducts from bioma ...

  3. Research and develop a Vertical Growing System incorporating season extending technology, high tunnel cooling, and soil based substrate to produce strawberries for up to seven months.

    SBC: SCENIC VALLEY FARM LLC            Topic: 812

    Vertical growing systems allow high density crop production, which increases yields per square foot while conserving natural resources. They have traditionally been used in conjunction with hydroponic methods, which often diminish produce quality and restrict the number of growers who adapt the technology. We will research and develop soil based methods that increase plant densities compared to fi ...

  4. Universal Swine Influenza Vaccine

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 83

    Influenza virus causes significant economic losses to the swine industry due to disease and decreased growth rates. Additionally, swine influenza viruses are zoonotic and represent a threat to public health. Both inactivated and live swine influenza virus vaccines are commercially available but are generally considered to lack efficacy to genetically diverse viruses circulating in the field. Here ...

  5. Modified Partitioned Aquaculture System (P.A.S.) To Produce High Value Fish For Human Consumption

    SBC: J M MALONE & SON INC            Topic: 87

    The traditional fish farming industry in the U.S. is currently faced with rising costs, labor shortages, competition from lower cost imports, increasing environmental regulation, and decreasing water supplies. Sales of the domestic channel catfish industry alone fell from $423 million in 2011 to $301 million in 2014. Catfish acreage in Arkansas which totaled 30400 acres in 2007 (NASS 2008), was re ...

  6. Monolithic integration of high-efficiency UV photocathodes on large-area microchannel plates for high spatial and temporal resolution particle detection

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 30a

    Reliable, high-sensitivity and high-resolution photon detectors, which can alleviate major limitations imposed by photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), for future high energy physics (HEP) and nuclear physics (NP) experiments, are of great interest to DOE- Other fields that could greatly benefit from these detectors include Cherenkov telescopes in astrophysics, positron emission tomography (PET) in medica ...

  7. New Approaches to Improved PEM Fuel Cell Catalyst Layer

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 17a

    Polymer-electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel-cells are one of the most promising energy conversion technologies for renewable clean energy applications- A major challenge preventing the widespread use and commercialization of PEM fuel cells is achieving high performance with low-loadings of platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts- One of the factors driving performance limitations in the cell is the mass ...

  8. Rugged, Long-Life Flow Monitoring for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) require drilling deep and hot wells; while making better use of each well through techniques such as fracking and zonal isolation. Establishing a well requires monitoring electronics that can produce temperature, pressure and flow profiles in the ...

  9. Refinement and Optimization of a Novel Synthesis Method to Semi-Continuously Extrude Pure, Ultra-Long Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for Application as RAD Hard, Light-weight Electrical Conductors and Signal Transmission Lines

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: 27d

    Bandwidth demands are increasing for a wide variety of data communications systems and applications. Not only are these demands increasing to accommodate residential, commercial, space and defense data communication needs, but they are also increasing for the scientific community at various test centers and research institutions around the world. According to Topic 27d, “High Energy Physics (HEP ...

  10. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...
