  1. A GREEN AND UNIQUE THERMOSETTING-THERMOPLASTIC POLYCARBONATE

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 16NCER2B

    Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced per year most will require 500 years to biodegrade. Currently only 9% is recycled, and 50 million tons of thermoset plastic produced annually that can't be recycled. _x000D_ _x000D_ This project will develop a sustainable and easily biodegradable polycarbonate plastic that is uniquely a recyclable thermoset resin. We call it a thermosetting thermoplastic ...

  2. Capacitive removal of PFOA and PFOS from Drinking Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) have been used commercially since the 1940’s due to their high level of chemical stability, almost frictionless surface or waterproofing characteristics. Elevated levels of PFCs have been linked to cancer and other health problems including reproductive and developmental risks. PFOA and PFOS are amongst the most prevalent of the PFCs with low l ...

  3. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  4. Development of Innovative Broad-Spectrum Analysis Methods for PFAS

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    This SBIR addresses EPA’s need for improved sampling and analysis technologies to detect Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). PFAS are used in firefighting sprays, at airports, and for wild fires, and have been used in textile treatments (e.g., it is a component in Scotchgard). It is estimated that 65 million Americans are at risk of PFAS exposure in their drinking water. Seacoast propose ...

  5. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 17NCER5A

    Altex’s Renewable Bioplastics Production (RBP) technology meets the Greener Plastic Manufacturing needs; to eliminate harmful-petrochemical feed sources, to accomplish toxic-free, low-energy, low cost bioplastics production, to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, and to have environment friendly-biodegradable bioplastics. Altex’s proposed RBP technology combines a novel feeding-sizing-pret ...

  6. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy. These advances must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $ ...

  7. Structured Adaptivity for Computer Science Coding

    SBC: ZYANTE INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the team will develop a prototype of a web-based coding progression tool for high school students to practice coding from easy to successively harder levels. The prototype will provide graded practice exercises, solutions, and explanations for important coding tasks. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study in five high school classrooms, the researchers will examine whether the pr ...

  10. CloudLab Software for Hands-On Science Learning

    SBC: MYRIAD SENSORS, INC.            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: The project team will fully develop and test CloudLab, a web-based dashboard to present scientific data captured by sensors during experiments. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize the actual doing of STEM so that students can apply learning to the real world. However, students often have difficulty collecting, measuring, and applying data from inquiry activities to furt ...
