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. 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 ...

  2. Determining Students' Academic Engagement while Completing Learning Activities and Assessments

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of D-TECH, a system to determine students' level of academic engagement while completing computer-based learning activities and assessments. The prototype will integrate within existing third party computer-based programs (e.g., online courseware, educational games, simulations, intelligent tutors) and will consist of a ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Readorium Rising Reader: Smart Nonfiction Comprehension Software For Students In Grades 3-5

    SBC: Mtelegence Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of the Readorium Rising Reader, a web-based game for students in grades 3 to 5 intended to strengthen reading comprehension of non-fiction science text. The game will provide students with strategies to use as they construct meaning and decipher new content vocabulary. The game will supplement classroom lessons and will be aligned with the Common Core S ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Cost Effective Seawater Desalination With ICP Element Arrays

    SBC: Okeanos Technologies, LLC            Topic: A

    Lack of fresh water hinders economic development, devastates human health, leads to environmental degradation and foments political instability. We obtain our water from limited and unevenly distributed surface and underground fresh water sources. Over withdrawal from these quasi-renewable sources causes myriad environmental, economic, political and human health problems. In the developing wor ...

  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. Cost Effective Seawater Desalination With ICP Element Arrays

    SBC: Okeanos Technologies, LLC            Topic: A

    Okeanos Technologies is developing a desalination system that used Ion Concentration Polarization (ICP) elements and modular arrays. ICP can separate water from solutes and contaminants far more efficiently than Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Electrodialysis(ED) because no extreme hydraulic pressures or heat sources are needed. The improve efficiency translates into order of magnitude savings in operat ...
