  1. An Enhanced Contact Plasma Reactor: A Competitive Remediation Technology for Per- and Perfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) Contaminated Water

    SBC: Dmax Plasma LLC            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have received considerable attention due to their toxicity, ubiquitous presence and recalcitrance. Manufacture and disposal of PFAS-containing products has resulted in PFAS contamination of numerous water supplies. Recent reports indicate the Air Force alone is expecting to spend > $2.25 billion for cleanup for PFAS-contaminated sites. Thus, there is a huge market ...

  2. Green Process for Plastic Chrome

    SBC: VERGASON TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    This green approach to manufacturing plastic with decorative chrome will eliminate health and environmental hazards from the chrome electroplating process. The US and global market for decorative chrome on plastic is 12 million m2/year and 84 million m2/year respectively, with 80% in automobile trim, 10% in appliances and 10% in sanitary fixtures. Without a viable commercial alternative, US provid ...

  3. Feasibility of rPET Lignin-Content Polylols for Significant Reduction of Halogenated Flame Retardant in Construction Spray Foam

    SBC: Resinate Materials Group, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6A

    This EPA SBIR Phase I Research and Development proposal will demonstrate feasibility of reduction in halogenated flame retardant use in polyisocyanurate foams prepared from lignincontent rPET polyols. The study will show whether or not the lignin rPET polyol formulations meet ASTM flame retardancy standards and thus reduce or eliminate the need for halogenated fire retardants (HFRs) in spray foams ...

  4. Formulation and testing of an entirely wood-based exterior insulation board for the high-performance building market

    SBC: GO Lab Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6B

    The goal of this project is the formulation a rigid, insulating, low-density wood composite, with physical and thermal properties comparable to fossil fuel derived foams. _x000D_ _x000D_ To achieve energy conservation standards mandated by certification agencies such as Passive House and LEED, high performance buildings require multiple shells of insulation – an inner shell that contains electri ...

  5. Zero-Emission Reconstituted Wood Panels for Building Interiors

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Organic resin-bonded reconstituted wood products, including oriented strandboard (OSB) and medium density fiberboard (MDF), are major sources of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released to the building interior, that are harmful to human health. The main thrust of this project is to significantly reduce the release of VOCs by replacing organic resins with inorganic polymer binders in reconst ...

  6. Growth and Fungal Resin Generation for Manufacturing Novel, Formaldehyde-Free Wood Particleboard

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Engineered wood represents a $8.SB market in the United States annually. Resins instituted in the production of traditional engineered wood products (formaldehyde) have recently come under substantial scrutiny due to detrimental human heath effects. Ecovative is developing a drop-in replacement for engineered wood resins that is economically competitive and intrinsically safe. The mResin TM system ...

  7. Low Temperature Ammonia Cracking Membrane Reactor for Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    There is growing interest in the use of ammonia as a clean alternative to fossil fuels. Ammonia belongs to a group of energy-dense liquid fuels that are much easier to store and transport than hydrogen. As ammonia decomposes to hydrogen through in a single reaction step and neither carbon oxide nor sulfur is involved in the product stream, ammonia is one of the most promising carbon neutral liquid ...

  8. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

    SBIR Phase I 2016 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. HYPERLAMINAR FLOW ENGINE FOR COMBINED HEAT AND POWER

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    The team of Mohawk Innovative Technology Inc., (MiTi), University of Texas – Center for Electro-Mechanics and MITIS of Belgium propose a truly transformative, ultra-high-speed and oilfree, Hyperlaminar Flow Engine (HFE) system that combines low cost viscous shear driven compressor and expander, an integrated low pressure drop recuperator, flameless combustor, permanent magnet generator, lubrican ...

  10. Circuit Board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

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

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America. Significant amounts of e-waste are actually not waste, but rather components recoverable for reuse, resale or recycled for their precious metals. In 2010, 3,320,000 tons of e-waste were generated (per “Municipal Solid Waste Generation, Recycling and Disposal in the United States; Tables and Figures for 2012,” ...
