  2. Direct Conversion of Organic Municipal Solid Waste to Lipids using an Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 13NCERC2

    The United States produces significant quantities of waste materials that are discarded. These wastes include organic components of municipal solid waste (MSW), biosolids from wastewater treatment plants and agricultural wastes. The release of these materials and their byproducts into the environment can have serious consequences, such as pollution of ground and surface water resources and spread ...

  3. Direct Conversion of Municipal and Agricultural Wastes to Biodiesel and Ethanol Utilizing a Unique Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: C

    Sustainable Bioproducts LLC’s proposed research will further develop an efficient, economical and scalable process for conversion of municipal solid wastes and agricultural wastes to biodiesel and ethanol. The technology is based on use of a novel extremophilic fungus, named strain MK7, which thrives in pH 1.2 bison dung ingeothermal habitats of Yellowstone National Park. The United States produ ...

  4. Development of a Scalable, Low-cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will employ the large scale; highly reliable boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (BD-UNCD®) electrodes developed during Phase I project to build and test Electrochemical Anodic Oxidation process (EAOP) cells and systems that can destroy Contaminants of Emerging Concern more economically and effectively than competing AOPs. BD-UN ...

  5. Hand-held sensor for remotely mapping carbon dioxide pollution sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 09NCERP1

    In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant under the federal Clean Air Act. The ruling allows the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate CO2 emissions. Such regulation will entail monitoring a wide variety of pollution sources, including automobile exhaust systems, industrial emission sources, and carbon sequestration sites. With presently availa ...

  6. MenuChoice:Nutrition Program for Community-based Group Homes for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    SBC: GOOD NUTRITION IDEAS, LLC            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops a nutrition program, MenuChoice©, for community-based group homes for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD). Adults with IDD experience poorer nutritional health and more nutrition-related secondary conditions than adults without disabilities. These conditions are preventable and modifiable through a safe, healthful diet, but multiple challenges precl ...

  7. Economic Capture of CO2 with Amines and Ionic Liquids Tethered In the Gas Phase

    SBC: INTELLIMET            Topic: 09NCERD1

    The objective of this project is to develop CO2 absorption columns with rates of production that will enable CO2 capture for less than $20 per ton of CO2. The research will make use of a nano-composite sorbent material called interstitial “Spiderwebs”TM. The Spiderweb material was conceived to overcome a fundamental kinetic limitation of conventional solid sorbents for molecular and ionic ...

  8. Fiber Based Return Signal CO2 Sensing System for Sequestration Site Monitoring

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 09NCERD1

    A key technology with immediate potential for reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with fossil fuel power plants is carbon sequestration. To ensure successful CO2 sequestration, the ability to monitor leakage from the geologic storage sites and the pipelines delivering the CO2 to those sites is paramount. The goal of this SBIR is to accelerate the development of a low-cost f ...

  10. Improving Combustion Efficiencyin Remote Alaska Community MSW-Burn Units

    SBC: Tok Welding and Fabrication            Topic: 07NCERM1

    Approximately 180 to 225 very remote communities, the bulk inaccessible by road, with populations averaging 200 to 500 people, are located in Alaska for which the open burning of municipal solid waste is prevalent, inevitable, and necessary to minimize environmental health concerns. Other waste management options, including conventional incinerators, are not feasible for this unique population gro ...
