The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction

    SBC: NUTTER & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    NAI has a strategy to identify plant species best suited for proof-of-concept testing for phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction. Phytoextraction refers to the uptake and translocation of contaminants in the soil by plant roots into the aboveground portions of plants. Once the phytoextraction concepts are proven at the bench-scale (Phase I) and followed with succe ...

  3. Developmental Neurotox Assay using Scalable Neurons and Astrocytes in High Content Imaging

    SBC: Aruna Biomedical, Inc.            Topic: B

    There is unmet need for rapid, cost effective in vitro methods to identify chemicals that pose a hazard to the human brain. A number of in vitro assays utilizing primary cells have been tested in an effort to devise effective models to prioritize chemicals for further in depth toxicity studies. However, isolation of primary human neural tissue is cost and labor intensive, and cannot be produced in ...

  6. 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 ...
