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 ...

  6. Biodegradable Lubricant from Esterified Propoxylated Glycerol

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 15a

    Current hydropower facilities employ a variety of electrical and mechanical equipment that necessitate the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of said equipment. 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 be submerged or otherwise c ...

  7. Transparent Conductive Anodes for Solid-State Lighting

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 09b

    The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that in 2017, the U.S. residential sector and the commercial sector used about 273 billion kilowatthours of electricity for lighting. This was about 10% of the total electricity consumed by both of these sectors and about 7% of total U.S. electricity consumption. Residential lighting consumption was about 129 billion kilowatthours or about 9% of ...
