  1. Replacements for PVC and PE Water Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: 17NCER1C

    METSS proposes to design a novel polymer system based on polypropylene with covalently attached antioxidants to mitigate issues with chemical permeation and water quality with current waterpipe materials. Polypropylene was selected as it has inherently good physical properties and low permeability that will limit chemical migration from the outside, addressing one critical factor impacting water q ...

  4. Lab-on-a-chip sensors for organic pollutants in homes

    SBC: Prometheus SenTech LLC            Topic: 15NCER01

    Exposure to hazardous organic compounds (OCs) in the indoor environment can cause serious health issues. There are no commercially available devices for inexpensive autonomous continuous monitoring of OCs that generates actionable data (identification and quantification of the compound) that can be used for reducing the health risks associated with OC exposure. The proposed sensor technology has ...

    SBIR Phase I 2016 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. Electrochemical Nutrient Extraction from Digestate

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 15NCER05

    The proposed technology addresses the need for mitigation of the impacts of animal agriculture on the environment via recovery of phosphorus and nitrogen. Concentrated animal feeding operations create significant amounts of waste in the form of manure digestate; disposal at a cost of $1.6B. Microbial electrolysis cells have been explored as a chemical free, energy efficient method of extracting nu ...

  6. Development of Zinc Coatings on Steel by Cermacladtm to Replace Galvanizing Pickling Lines

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: 13NCERB1

    Every year, a significant amount of money is lost due to atmospheric attack of steel parts. A convenient and effective way for corrosion protection is coating the unalloyed steel with a thin layer of zinc (Zn) metal by galvanizing. Pickling is an essential step of this process to ensure high quality surface of steel for further processing. In this process, acid is used to remove scale from the su ...

    SBIR Phase II 2015 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2015 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Hard Gold Plating for Electronics Applications from a Non-Cyanide Bath

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER2A

    The proposed program addresses the need for a commercialized process to efficiently deposit a hard gold coating from a non-cyanide bath for electronics applications that also does not contain nickel or cobalt. Seventy percent of industrial gold use is in the deposition of gold coatings for electronics applications. Most of the electrodeposited gold is used to provide electrical contact surfaces wi ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Water Purification using TiO2 and Novel Activation Method

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    Under this Phase II SBIR, Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will optimize and scale up its UV Plasma- shells with Titanium (IV) Dioxide (TiO2) system to produce a low cost, rugged, lightweight, and highly efficient and versatile water purification system. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating devices ranging in size from 400 microns to 8.00 mm. Under the EPA Phase I SBIR, IST has successf ...

    SBIR Phase II 2014 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. 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 ...
