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. High Flux Nanofiltration Membrane for Emerging Contaminant Control

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: 13NCERA1

    A variety of organic and inorganic contaminants originating from municipal, agricultural, and industrial wastewater sources are being found at increasing frequency in the Nation’s natural and drinking water supplies. These “emerging contaminants” include pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, steroids/hormones, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds, personal care products, and herbicides/pestici ...

  2. Biofuel Production from Grease Trap Waste

    SBC: Environmental Fuel Research, LLC            Topic: 13NCERF1

    Environmental Fuel Research, LLC (EFR-LLC), has demonstrated the technical feasibility of separating fats, oils, and greases (FOG) from grease trap waste (GTW) and converting FOG to biodiesel that can meet ASTM specifications. GTW is a dirty and low-value waste from the food service industry that is high in FOG and currently is treated as a liability. The EFR-LLC process uses a bubble column react ...

  3. Direct Conversion of Organic Municipal Solid Waste to Lipids using an Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 13NCERC2

    The United States produces significant quantities of waste materials that are discarded. These wastes include organic components of municipal solid waste (MSW), biosolids from wastewater treatment plants and agricultural wastes. The release of these materials and their byproducts into the environment can have serious consequences, such as pollution of ground and surface water resources and spread ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Development of Zinc Coatings on Steel by Cermacladtm to Replace Galvanizing Pickling Lines

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: 13NCERB1

    Every year, a significant amount of money is lost due to atmospheric attack of steel parts. A convenient and effective way for corrosion protection is coating the unalloyed steel with a thin layer of zinc (Zn) metal by galvanizing. Pickling is an essential step of this process to ensure high quality surface of steel for further processing. In this process, acid is used to remove scale from the su ...

  7. Low-cost, Regenerable Air Filter for Efficient Gaseous Pollutants Removal

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 13NCERD2

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) is developing a regenerable high efficiency filter technology for direct removal of gaseous pollutants such as VOCs and CO2 from indoor air. In addition to controllably improving indoor air quality (IAQ), the direct removal of these pollutants will reduce the requirement for building ventilation with outdoor make-up air currently used to dilute the concentration of ...

  8. Using Software and Internet of Things Technology to Drive Behavioral Energy Savings in Commercial Buildings Using Building Orbs

    SBC: Lucid Design Group, Inc.            Topic: 13NCERF1

    Patterns of electricity generation and consumption in the United States have rapidly changed over the past decade and are forecasted to continue doing so in coming decades. On the supply side, increasing generation from renewable sources has raised concerns about the ability of the electrical grid to stay stable given renewables’ intermittent and distributed nature, and has increased calls for n ...

  9. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  10. RECYCLING OF SOLID ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE

    SBC: Chemical Reclamation Tech            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR RECYCLING ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE IS PROPOSED. ABOUT THREE MILLION POUNDS OF SOLID CHEMICAL WASTE IS GENERATED ANNUALLY FROM ZINC PHOSPHATING IN NORTH AMERICA. THE WASTE IS AN INORGANIC MIXED ZINC/IRON TERTIARY SALT OF PHOSPHORIC ACID. TOXICITY LEVELS VARY BUT MOST WASTES CONTAIN NICKEL, CHROME, LEAD, AND OTHER TOXINS IN SMALL QUANTITIES. THE METHOD DEPENDS UPON CONTINUOUS REMO ...
