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. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NanoSD, Inc.            Topic: DE-FOA-0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  4. Spouted Bed Reactor Designs for Thermal Desorption of Mercury Compounds

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies Inc.            Topic: 18a

    Thermal desorption systems are being utilized to remove toxic mercury compounds from coal. However, high moisture level, poor mixing, and unsuitable heating rate reduce the efficiency of thermal desorption units. Spouted bed reactor, which have been used in various physical operations such as drying, presents a possible solution in reducing moisture level and increasing particles mixing. The propo ...

  7. Layer-by-layer Deposition of Ultra-thin Hybrid/ microporous Membrane for CO2 Separation

    SBC: Angstrom Thin Film Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    CO2 separation and capture is a global topic that is closely related to energy and environment. Separation via membrane techniques is energy-efficient compared to other separation techniques. Among various membranes, porous membranes usually have good performance in gas flux but poor performance in selectivity. The flux of a porous membrane is dependent on the membrane thickness; the selectivity o ...
