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. A Blubber- or Dorsal Fin-Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Ph ...

  2. Novel Hempstead Oil-Based Bio-epoxy for the Manufacturing of Sporting Goods

    SBC: Zila Works LLC            Topic: 16NCER2A

    Epoxy resins are typically created using bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine disrupting chemical. In addition, over 90% of plastics are derived from virgin fossil feedstocks, equivalent to ~ 6% of global oil consumption. This project proposes to develop an innovative bio-epoxy resin based on the fatty acids of hempseed oil. This approach is to dismantle (by hydrolysis) the triglyceride structure and r ...

  3. Phosphorus recovery and high efficiency biological nutrient removal from wastewater with an innovative aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactor process

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Phosphorus is a nutrient essential to all life, yet phosphate rock used for fertilizer is a finite resource which is rapidly being depleted. Yet, excess phosphorus from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is causing eutrophication and degradation water quality. There is a critical need for wastewater treatment technologies that will remove and recover more phosphorus for beneficial use in food pro ...

  4. Phosphorus recovery and high efficiency biological nutrient removal from wastewater with an innovative aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactor process

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Project Summary: Phosphorus is a nutrient essential to modern food production and to all life on earth, yet phosphate rock from which phosphate fertilizer is produced is a finite resource, which is rapidly being depleted. At the same time, excess phosphorus from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and runoff from farms is causing eutrophication and the resultant degradation water quality. There is ...

  5. Novel Nutrient Recovery Process from Wastewater

    SBC: LJJW AQUASOLUTION, LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    In a typical wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), the anaerobic digestion process generates a sidestream with high level of ammonia (NH3-N) and ortho-phosphate (ortho-P), which contributes to as much as 20-40 percent of total nutrient loading to the main plant stream. Traditionally, the sidestream is returned to the main stream and treated in biological nutrient removal processes, at significant cos ...

  6. Process Development for Sandwich Core Structure PLA Thermoformed Objects

    SBC: Grow Plastics LLC            Topic: B

    Polylactid acid (PLA) is a thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch and other sugars. It has numerous environmental benefits, including a lower energy cost at the beginning of its life and biodegradability at the end of life, and it is used in food packaging.Sandwich core structures are composite structures of skin/foam/skin often used in airplanes t ...

  7. Comprehensive Assessment of Mycofiltration Biotechnology to Remove Pathogens form Urban Storm Water

    SBC: Fungi Perfecti, LLC            Topic: B

    This Small Business innovation Research project will explore the development of mycofiltration– the use of fungal mycelium as a biologically active filter for removing pathogens from storm water. As pollution from pathogens is the leading cause of critically impaired waters nationwide, with storm water strongly linked to this contamination, this cutting edge research is a timely response to the ...

  8. Natural Adjuvants to Enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Marine aquaculture production now exceeds 20 million metric tons annually (FAO 2010) but viral diseases are still a major threat to the expansion of sustainable mariculture systems (National Marine Fisheries Service 2007). Pathogenic viruses continue to devastate many fish and shellfish operations every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004, Lightner 2011). To date, vaccines against aquatic anim ...

  9. A Low Cost Chemosensor for Measuring Phosphate in Water and Soil

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I SBIR research is expected to lead to the development of a low cost portable instrument capable of making real time measurements of phosphate in water and soil samples. The sensor system for this instrument will be based on the highly selective phosphate binding properties of a co-polymer to be synthesized in this research. In many areas, the rapid growth and intensification ...

  10. Regenerable Electrochemical Spiral Wound Decontamination Cell for Efficient Decontamination of Radionuclides in Water

    SBC: Isotron Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Water security has become a national priority following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This proposal specifically addresses the threat of radionuclide contamination, such as that resulting from a terrorist release of radioactive material into the water supply, but is expected to result in technology that is broadly applicable to other water borne contaminants. More specifically, th ...
