  9. 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 ...

  10. Harvestable Energy System for Use in Covered Locations

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: N153124

    The objective of the proposed project is to develop a lightweight, robust, and modular system, capable of harvesting solar energy in areas with dense foliage cover in an effective manner. The system proposed will be able to reach a height of 100 feet above an average tropical forest canopy to deploy a solar array capable of generating 250 W under AM1.5G 1-sun illumination. In this proposal, MicroL ...
