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

    SBC: Prometheus SenTech, LLC            Topic: 15-NCER-01

    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 ...

  2. Developing/Manufacturing/Selling an Affordable Clean Burning Biomass Heating/Cooking/Lighting Integrated Stove

    SBC: ASAT, INC.            Topic: 15-NCER-02

    Biomass heating/cooking stoves in developing countries do not efficiently cook food or heat houses, while consuming too much fuel and emitting pollution resulting in respiratory illnesses, premature death, and climate change. Affordable technologies found in 1.) EPA approved heating stoves, 2.) DOE funded cooking stoves, and 3.) TEG (thermoelectric generation) lighting devices, improve heating, co ...

  4. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: Hi-Z Technology, Inc.            Topic: 15-NCER-02

    Over 50 million Indian households cook on a bio-mass fire and have unreliable or no electricity but are anxious to purchase an affordable power stove which will provide on-demand power and lighting to their homes. Annually, projected sales of the power stove could save sixteen million trees, reduce cooking fire particulates by 90%, reduce the two million premature deaths caused from indoor air pol ...

  5. Isocyanate-Free Polyurethane Resins for One-Component, Ambient-Cure Coatings

    SBC: Renuvix, LLC            Topic: 15-NCER-04

    Due to their exceptional properties, polyurethane coatings are used extensively in our society.Unfortunately, the socyanate-functional components used in the curing of polyurethanes are generally toxic. Thus, there is a need for polyurethane resins that can be cured without the use of isocyanate-functional components. In addition to enabling the production of polyurethane coatings that are free ...

  6. Electrochemical Nutrient Extraction from Digestate

    SBC: Faraday Technology, lnc.            Topic: 15-NCER-05

    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 ...

  7. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: Microvi Biotech, Inc.            Topic: 15-NCER-05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of

  8. Ultra-Thin, Magnetic Polymer Membranes for the Selective Removal of Macronutrients in Wastewater

    SBC: NanoSonic, Inc.            Topic: 15-NCER-05

    Phosphorous and nitrogen are valuable nutrients found in wastewater. The flow of phosphorous from rocks to the natural waterway has increased in recent years, due in large part to agricultural production. In addition to being a nutrient, phosphorous is a contaminant in aquatic environments that leads to the formation of organic material and algae. Recovery of phosphorous from wastewater will ensur ...

  9. Economic recovery and reuse of nutrients from wastewater

    SBC: XploSafe, LLC            Topic: 15-NCER-05

    Nutrient pollution caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus in the water is a costly and challenging environmental problem with widespread potential for negative health and ecological effects. The proposed solution to this problem is the capture of ammonium, urea, nitrate and phosphate on low-cost biodegradable sorbent pellets that upon saturation, with the nutrients can be employed directly as sl ...

  10. Building Materials from Scrap Tires and Waste Plastics

    SBC: Professional Analytical & Consulting Services, Inc. PACS Inc.            Topic: 15-NCER-06

    Two major waste streams, thermoplastics and used automotive tires, need a technological and economic method to decrease their entry into our environment. Both have long life-cycles as waste, causing many deleterious environmental problems. The Phase I, II , and Ill goal is to divert plastic and tire waste and its pollution away from landfills and the environment into transformational new technolog ...
