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. Lithium-ion Batteries Based on Aqueous Electrolyte: A New Generation of Sustainable Energy Storage Devices

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: B

    NEI Corporation proposes to develop a new and sustainable aqueous electrolyte-based lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery system that is capable of delivering high energy density, comparable to state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries. Almost all commercial Li-ion batteries use an organic electrolyte, which is flammable and has been a concern particularly in large format Li-ion batteries. In addition, there are t ...

  2. Use of Supplementary Cementitious Materias in High Performance, CO2 Sequestering Construction Materials

    SBC: SolidiaTechnologies, Inc.            Topic: C

    Problem Statement: The worldwide manufacture and use of Portland cement for use in concrete accounts for roughly 5% of global CO2 emissions. A common practice in the production of Portland cement concrete (PCC) to reduce CO2 emissions levels is the partial substitution of cement with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) from recycled industrial waste streams. The incorporation of these m ...

  3. Self-Healing Corrosion Resistant Coating: An Enabling Technology to Allow Use of Alternate Waters for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: A

    The projected population growth and limited availability of fresh water sources have forced utility companies and industries to consider the use of alternate water for non-potable application, such as industrial cooling. While in excess of 100 billion gallons per day of water is used for cooling purposes in a power plant, and estimated 6 billion gallons per day of freshwater is not returned to th ...

  4. Siloxane Removal from Biogas Using a Novel Drop-In Technology

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: H

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and “green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from t ...

  5. INFRNO2: INfrared Faraday Rotation of NO2 for Portable Sub-Part-Per-Billion Sensors

    SBC: Laser Sensing Co.            Topic: G

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focuses on the development of a proof-of-concept ultra-portable nitrogen dioxide (NO2) sensor based on mid-infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL) spectroscopy. NO2 is a critical air pollutant which can trigger respiratory/cardiovascular disease and new standards by the National ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) limit 1 hour concentrations ...

  6. Self-Healing Corrosion-Control Coatings: An Enabling Technology To Restore Aging Water Infrastructure and Permit Alternative Water Use for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problem Statement:  Most of the Nation’s water infrastructure is aging rapidly. Reports indicate that in the major water systems, approximately 30 percent of the pipes are 40 to 80 years old, and approximately 10 percent are more than 80 years old. The water pipes are subject to internal and external corrosion, resulting in pipe leaks and water main breaks. In addition to aging, the rap ...

  8. An Artifical Neural Network and Optimization Methodology for Detecting and Managing Terrorist Attack Against Water Distribution Systems

    SBC: Neural Optimization Applied Hydrology, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The goals of this Phase I research project are to investigate the feasibility of using an artificial neural network (ANN) and an optimization-based water distribution security system (¿smart security¿) for accurately detecting contamination events, and given the nature of the threat, identify optimal crisis management decisions that minimize the threat and maintain a safe water supply. Given th ...

  9. Environmentally Safe Wood Preservatives

    SBC: NOVAFLUX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to study a new class of environmentally safe wood preservatives based on cation-anion complexes with antimicrobial activities. The proposed cations include: (1) biguanide/polybiguanide derivatives, (2) polyionenes (polyquats), and (3) quaternary ammonium salts. The associated anions needed to form the complex will be selected from triclosan, tribromo ...
