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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Developmental Neurotox Assay Using Scalable Neupons and Astrocytes in High Content Imaging

    SBC: ARUNA BIOMEDICAL, INC.            Topic: B

    The objective of this proposed project and the EPA Computational Toxicology program’s goals are aligned in assessing chemicals for potential risk to human health and the environment through the use of more representative multicellular human developmental neurotoxicology assays. ArunA Biomedical will develop a rapid, scalable, human pluripoten stem cell derived cell-based co-culture assay system ...

  4. Commercialization of Solid Acid and Base Catalysts Derived from Biochar Optimized to Produce Biodiesel from Low Cost Oils

    SBC: Down to Earth Energy (formerly Mountain Creek Enterprises)            Topic: TopicG

    Down to Earth Energy will scale up and commercialize reusable and recoverable solid, porous acid and base catalysts for biodiesel production using biochar generated from agricultural and forestry residues (i.e., a sustainable biomass). The Phase I feasibility study using an acid catalyst made from biochar (peanut hulls, pine pellets, and pine chips) showed high efficiency methylation of fats and o ...

  6. Feasibility Study to Produce Biodiesel from Low Cost Oils and New Catalysts Derived from Agricultural & Forestry Residues

    SBC: Mountain Creek Enterprises            Topic: N/A

    This research will develop and demonstrate the feasibility of preparing reusable and recoverable solid, porous acid and base catalysts for biodiesel production using activated carbon generated from agricultural and forestry residues (i.e., a sustainable biomass). These new catalysts will greatly reduce amounts of waste pollutants that are generated compared to current methodology that uses sodium ...

  8. Nanomaterial Solutions for Hot Coal Gas Cleanup

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) is a new coal gasification technique that efficiently uses the hot (900-1500°C) generated syngas to power both steam and gas turbines. Due to regulations, this syngas must be free of sulfur and purification is normally carried out at reduced temperatures (< 500°C); however, using this temperature requires the cooling and reheating of coal gas, which ...

  10. Surfactant Modified Clay and Zeolite for Treatment of Perchlorate-Contaminate Water

    SBC: Planteco Environmental Consultants, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Perchlorate threatens the drinking water supplies of more than 20 million people in the United States and the number keeps growing. The cost of treating perchlorate and other emergent contaminants in drinking water using ion exchange resins, nanofiltration and granular activated carbon (GAC) is a growing financial burden to many municipal and regional water boards. PLANTECO Environmental Consu ...
