  1. Diesel Engine Efficiency and Emissions Improvement Via Piston Temperature Control

    SBC: Electro Mechanical Associates Inc            Topic: E

    Diesel engine manufacturers need a way to improve fuel economy as well as limit NOx and particulate emissions to meet upcoming federal, state, and global regulations. A large percentage of emissions and fuel consumption occurs during cold start and light to medium load operation. EMA proposes to develop a method to increase combustion chamber temperature during warm-up, light, and medium loads th ...

  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 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 ...

  5. Transit Safety

    SBC: Mackinac Technology Company, The            Topic: 131FT1

    The Mackinac Technology Company is proposing to develop a novel antireflection film that will virtually eliminate the reflection of interior lighting on transit bus windshields and significantly improve driver visibility and passenger/pedestrian safety. Additives are incorporated into windshield glass to reduce solar glare during daylight hours. These additives have the unfortunate effect of in ...

  6. Sulfur Tolerant Catalysts for Biomass Tar Removal

    SBC: NexTech Materials, Ltd. dba Nexceris, LLC            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 ...

  7. Determination of the Onset of Widespread Fatigue Damage

    SBC: Qual-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUAL-X proposes to nondestructively inspect the extensive surface areas of aging commercial airliners for corrosion and fatigue damage. QUAL-X will characterize the above surfaces both at local and global areas of interest using chemical gas penetrants and advanced gas sensor techniques; both of which were developed as an extension of the company's unique and singular experience with the ket gas ...

  8. Plasma Process for Pretreatement of Metal Surface



    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrokinetic remediation of metal contaminated soils is a promising in-situsoil remediation technology. In electrokinetic soil remediation, a current isapplied to two electrodes buried in the soil and the ionic contaminants movetowards the electrodes for subsequent cleanup of the localized contaminant.However, implementation of electrokinetic soil remediation is prohibited by1) buildup of a pH ...

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of Faraday Technology's Phase I program is to demonstrate thefeasibility of a novel treatment technology for in process recycling ofwastewaters generated by the printed wiring board (PWB) and metal finishingindustries. Specifically, their electrochemical ion-exchange (EIX) process willenable in-process recycling of both water to rinsing operations and metal saltsto plating operation ...
