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. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  2. Inexpensive High Performance Continous Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 13NCERD1

    The overall goal of this Project is to develop an innovative inexpensive optical technology and rugged and portable instrumentation for highly sensitive, selective, continuous measurement of atmospheric ammonia for air pollution monitoring. Environmental studies have proven that ammonia presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, accurate monitoring and control of NH3 concentration is ...

  3. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products, including paints, plastics and tires, and is a $1.5 billion market with a 6 percent growth rate. However, fumed silica producers rely on an energy- intensive, costly and hazardous process. The air pollution resulting from the energy utilized to produce fumed silica is a combination of carbon emissions from the production of raw materials, ene ...

  4. Inexpensive High Performance Continuous Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: D

    Environmental studies have proven that ammonia (NH3) presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, accurate monitoring and control of NH3 concentration is required inorder to maintain appropriate air quality levels. Atmospheric ammonia contributes directly and indirectly to acidification, eutrophication, human health and climate change. For air pollution monitoring, the ammonia concentr ...

  5. Efficient Distributed Energy Generation System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 09NCERA1

    Distributed energy offers a means of providing reliable, cost-effective electrical power to residents of rural communities. These requirements often cannot be met by current distribution methods due to limitation of remote central station power generation and transmission. With the migration of population from urban areas to rural areas and the increased power demands placed on electrical gri ...

  6. Photonic Crystal Slot Waveguide Spectrometer for Monitoring of Volatile Organic Compounds in Groundwater and Hazardous Pollutants in Air

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: 09NCERC1

    In this program, Omega Optics, Inc. and the University of Texas, Austin, propose a novel lab-on-chip photonic crystal slot waveguide infrared spectrometer for detection and spectroscopic analysis of BTEX hydrocarbons (benzene and toluene) in water and greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide) in air. The device utilizes the unique dispersive properties of slow light photonic crystal waveguides together ...

  7. Defiant Technologies' Handheld Detection System for TCE and PCE

    SBC: DEFIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 09NCERC1

    The concept of this SBIR project is to employ a hand-held sensor system to monitor groundwater. This concept recognizes the need for users to query field sensors remotely to report on concentration of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE). The missing part of this concept is a low-power sensor system that can reliably analyze groundwater for these contaminants. D ...

  8. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Triglycerides to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 09NCERH1

    There is a finite amount of fossil fuels, which will only last a few more decades. Therefore, it is imperative to develop renewable sources of energy. An area that has recently attracted a lot of attention is the conversion of renewable oils to biodiesel, primarily through the methanolysis of triglycerides. The use of an immobilized lipase as a heterogeneous biocatalyst to transform oils into ...

  9. Nanostructured Planar Waveguide Device for Molecular Identification of Hazardous Compounds in Water by Evanescent Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Senspex, Inc.            Topic: 08NCERB1

    Senspex, Inc. proposes to investigate a novel diagnostic tool based upon evanescent field planar waveguide sensing and complementary nanostructured mediated molecular vibration spectroscopy methods for rapid detection and analysis of hazardous biological and chemical targets in water and air. The main characteristic of the proposed approach is the use of evanescent field Surface Enhanced Raman Sp ...

    SBIR Phase I 2009 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Organophosphate Degrading Enzymes

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: 08NCERI1

    Agave BioSystems in collaboration with Carl A. Batt proposes to develop decon-nanoparticles, which will leverage ongoing opportunities in enzyme engineering and the fabrication of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Enhanced performance will be engineered into the system to improve the catalytic degradation of chemical agents. Through an iterative process optimizing the particles and the enzy ...
