  3. Economically Recovering Rare Earth Materials

    SBC: XYLON TECHNICAL CERAMICS INC.            Topic: DLA161003

    This Phase II SBIR project seeks to develop and commercialize methods for recycling rare earth materials from strategic waste streams. Rare earth materials are critical for a broad range of technologies. Important industrial sectors such as defense, manufacturing, energy, transportation, and electronics all utilize rare earths in abundance. There are currently a limited number of economically v ...

  4. Circuit board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic Waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the US. Significant amounts are recoverable for reuse, resale, and refining for precious metals. The disassemblers send circuit boards to refiners/smelters for precious metals recovery. E-Waste disassemblers remove parts from these circuit boards, so only certain parts are smelted. As such they are the key market for our depopulator. Refiners ...

  5. Manufacturing Improvements for DLA Lithium Batteries

    SBC: Bren-Tronics, Inc.            Topic: DLA161001

    The proposed project covers manufacturing improvements in the production of specific high volume batteries of interest to DLA as specified in their SBIR Proposal Submission Request noted above, with the exception of the PRC-154 and PLM-4 Batteries. Bren-Tronics proposes to go directly to Phase II because we have already demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed manufacturing improvements on the ...

  7. Mycological Biopolymer as a Replacement for Expanded Plastic Foams

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: B

    Plastics and petroleum-based foams are a conventional solution for the material needs of many industries. Today these non-biodegradable, fossil fuel derived products compose 13 percent of all municipal solid waste streams, as opposed to 1 percent in 1960. This waste stream is associated with a number of environmental concerns, including greenhouse gas generation from incineration, as well as land ...

  8. Novel Lignin-Based Magnetite Nanocomposites for Removal of Phosphate from Contaminated Waters

    SBC: SYNANOMET, LLC            Topic: B

    Phosphorus (P) remediation is an extremely difficult and costly environmental problem and could cost $44.5 billion dollars for treatment using conventional water treatment plants to meet EPA requirements. Phosphorous runoff can lead to“dead zones” due to eutrophication and can also cause hypoxia, leading to death of aquatic life that thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. None commercial prod ...

  9. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...
