  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. Portable SPR Imaging Biosensor for Pathogen Detection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: DHP13005

    Many of the currently available options for food safety testing are expensive, slow, or limited in the range of threats that can be detected. Sending samples back to testing facilities in the United States is too slow and cumbersome to effectively respond to immediate food safety issues. SPR technology has been well-developed as a tool for molecular analysis, so it is relatively mature in terms ...

  5. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2012 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11H06

    The Microclimate Cooling Unit will use magnetic energy to cause a temperature change in the exchanger to extract heat from the gel pack, which covers the primary area of heat loss on the human body at the neck and upper back, reducing the overall body temperature. Thermocouples will monitor the gel pack to allow the user to adjust the pack temperature to their needs.

  7. 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 ...

  8. An Enhanced Performance Training and Support System for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders

    SBC: The Prevention Group, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project develops and evaluates the Enhanced Performance Training and Support System (EPTSS) to train and support individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in: behavioral training, modeling, self-management, and visual cues using available technology such as the iPod Touch/iPad. Phase I assesses the feasibility of an enhanced job performance system utilized in multiple work environments ...

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

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: D

    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 fiber- ...

  10. Hand-Held Sensor for Remotely Mapping Carbon Dioxide Pollution Sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: TopicF

    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 ...
