  1. Low Cost Retrofil Emissions Control In Off-Road Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program addresses the development of catalyst technology for passive, lean abatement of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from off-road diesel exhaust sources. The approach utilizes passive reduction of NOx with exhaust-borne, oxidizable species under the fuel lean conditions encountered in diesel exhaust. Although a number of technologies exist for NOx abatement ...

  2. Greener and More Energy Efficient Renewable Energy Resource-Geothermal Heat Pumps

    SBC: ACTA Technology            Topic: N/A

    "Given the exigency to rein in our nation’s energy consumption and carbon emissions, a nationwide deployment of Geothermal Heat Pumps (GHPs) would help mitigate our demands on the earth’s resources by reducing energy requirements for heating and cooling. Geothermal Heat Pump systems are a proven renewable energy resource that provides significant energy savings as compared to typical heating ...

  3. Low Temperature Stirling Engine for Waste Heat Recovery from Distributed Power Sources

    SBC: Cool Energy, Inc.            Topic: A

    "Since March 2006, Boulder, Colorado based Cool Energy, Inc. (CEI) has prototyped three generations of a novel low-temperature Stirling engine to generate electricity for low-to-medium temperature (100°C to 250°C) heat sources including solar thermal, geothermal and waste heat. With a marketing name for the SolarHeart® Engine, in its most recent operation in April, 2010, over 1800 watts of out ...

  4. A Solvent-Free, Nanopowder Production Method

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: B

    "The large-scale production of nanoparticles of the highest purity will be accomplished by the Eltron Solvent-free Powder Synthesis (ESPS) system described in this proposal. Since conventional particle size reduction methods are unable to reduce particles to the nano-scale and tend to reduce the purity of the powders, the ESPS system has been designed for direct yield of high purity and nano-size ...

  5. New Sorbents to Contol CO2 and Multi-Contaminant Emissions

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: D

    "The oil refining industry is one of the most significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions, with considerable contribution from downstream activities. CO2 emissions from refineries rank third among the stationary producers (after power and cement industries), accounting for about 4% of the global CO2 emissions, approaching 1 billion tons per year. In addition, the oil refineries also emit sig ...

  6. Development of a Scalable, Low-Cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop and ready for commercialization a scalable, low-cost process for purification of water containing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) using anodic oxidation with boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD®) thin films. Resent research demonstrated that there is considerable potential for the development of electrochemica ...

  7. A New Polymer from Bio-Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: H

    "Project Opportunity The vast majority of today’s polymers, plastics, foams, synthetic fiber, adhesives, and coatings are made from oil, which is non-renewable, non-biodegradable, depends in large part on foreign sources, is highly sensitive to regional conflicts, and has a large carbon footprint. Unfortunately, today’s selection of renewable polymeric materials is extremely limited and most ...

  8. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  9. Pipeline-Quality Methane from Anaerobic Digestion Systems

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: I

    "Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If consumed properly, use of manure-derived fuels can also protect against environmental problems such a ...

  10. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Petroleum is finite and as world economies develop it will be increasingly expensive. Consequently, crude oils containing contaminants including mercury and sulfur will be processed. The resulting extensive pollution along with concerns over climate change make it highly desirable to find alternative sources for plastics as a means of pollution prevention. Plastic water bottles in California ar ...
