  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Design, Development and Testing of Optimized Composite "Soft Crack Arrestors"

    SBC: ENGINEERING MECHANICS CORPORATION OF COLUMBUS            Topic: 07PH1

    Emc2's proposal provided to DOT in response to SBIR Research topic 07-PH1 on "Design Optimization for Soft Crack Arrestors" focuses on the development of key material property data needed to design "soft crack arrestors". This testing will be done over a range of temperatures to cover extreme conditions for future pipeline designs. It is also essential to develop this data at the loading rates t ...

    SBIR Phase I 2008 Department of Transportation
  5. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Transportation
  6. Plasma Process for Pretreatement of Metal Surface

    SBC: BRIGHTON TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. IN-SITU REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS FROM VADOSE ZONE CONTAMINATED SOILS USING ENHANCED ELECTROKINETICS

    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
  8. IN-PROCESS RECYCLING OF PLATING WASTES

    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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. The Use of Recycled Solid Automotive Paint Wastes as Ingredients in Automotive Sealant Products

    SBC: Aster Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Novel Process for Functional Chromium Plating from Non-Toxic Trivalent Chromium (Cr(III)) Plating Bath

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