  1. Sulfur Tolerant Catalysts for Biomass Tar Removal

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: F

    In this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project, NexTech Materials proposes a catalytic reforming approach to remove waste tar from gasified biomass on nickel-based catalysts. Biomass gasification is a potential renewable route to producing electricity, liquid fuels, and value-added chemicals. At high temperatures, carbonaceous biomass reacts with air, oxygen, and /or steam to product ...

  2. Efficient Water Purification using TiO2 and Novel Activation Method

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    Under this SBIR, Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will investigate coating UV Plasma-shells with Titanium (IV) Dioxide (TiO2) to produce a low cost rugged, lightweight, and highly efficient and versatile water purification system. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating devices ranging in size from 400 microns to 4.00 mm. IST has demonstrated prototype Plasma-shells devices that produce ...

  3. Environmentally Friendly Borate-Based Wood Preservative

    SBC: LIQUID LIGNIN COMPANY            Topic: B

    This natural organic retention project proposes using lignin from emerging biorefineries to allow borates to be used as wood preservatives for exterior applications exposed to rain. Enhancing retention of environmentally-friendly borates has been the“holy grail” of the industry for decades. We believe this team and technical approach are very well suited for this challenge because: • The ...

  4. Environmentally Conscious Electrochemical Machining for Zero Discharge and Metal Recycling

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: B

    This Phase I SBIR addresses the need for a manufacturing method for recovery and recycle of metal removed during electrochemical machining (ECM). Direct current (DC) ECM uses viscous solutions with additives such as fluoride resulting in difficult to control electrolytes, environmentally hazardous waste and low process yield. In contrast, FARADAYICSM ECM uses environmentally benign buffered salt ...
