  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 ...

  4. Lithium-ion Batteries Based on Aqueous Electrolyte: A New Generation of Sustainable Energy Storage Devices

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: B

    NEI Corporation proposes to develop a new and sustainable aqueous electrolyte-based lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery system that is capable of delivering high energy density, comparable to state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries. Almost all commercial Li-ion batteries use an organic electrolyte, which is flammable and has been a concern particularly in large format Li-ion batteries. In addition, there are t ...

  6. Use of Supplementary Cementitious Materias in High Performance, CO2 Sequestering Construction Materials

    SBC: SolidiaTechnologies, Inc.            Topic: C

    Problem Statement: The worldwide manufacture and use of Portland cement for use in concrete accounts for roughly 5% of global CO2 emissions. A common practice in the production of Portland cement concrete (PCC) to reduce CO2 emissions levels is the partial substitution of cement with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) from recycled industrial waste streams. The incorporation of these m ...

  7. Self-Healing Corrosion Resistant Coating: An Enabling Technology to Allow Use of Alternate Waters for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: A

    The projected population growth and limited availability of fresh water sources have forced utility companies and industries to consider the use of alternate water for non-potable application, such as industrial cooling. While in excess of 100 billion gallons per day of water is used for cooling purposes in a power plant, and estimated 6 billion gallons per day of freshwater is not returned to th ...

  8. Software to Compute Effect Sizes for Cluster-Randomized Trials

    SBC: Biostatistical Programming Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: In education research, the standardized mean difference (symbolized by d) is the predominant effect size index. It is calculated as the difference between the treatment-group and control-group means, divided by the pooled standard deviation. Using d allows the impacts of education interventions to be compared even when they have been evaluated using different measures or study designs. Ca ...

  9. Siloxane Removal from Biogas Using a Novel Drop-In Technology

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: H

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and “green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from t ...

  10. INFRNO2: INfrared Faraday Rotation of NO2 for Portable Sub-Part-Per-Billion Sensors

    SBC: Laser Sensing Co.            Topic: G

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focuses on the development of a proof-of-concept ultra-portable nitrogen dioxide (NO2) sensor based on mid-infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL) spectroscopy. NO2 is a critical air pollutant which can trigger respiratory/cardiovascular disease and new standards by the National ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) limit 1 hour concentrations ...
