  1. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
