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. Capacitive removal of PFOA and PFOS from Drinking Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) have been used commercially since the 1940’s due to their high level of chemical stability, almost frictionless surface or waterproofing characteristics. Elevated levels of PFCs have been linked to cancer and other health problems including reproductive and developmental risks. PFOA and PFOS are amongst the most prevalent of the PFCs with low l ...

  2. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Commonly used water treatment approaches to mitigate phosphorus pollution and its consequences in small watersheds include the use of chemicals to precipitate phosphorus or algaecides to terminate algal growth. Both approaches require the addition of chemicals to the waterbodies resulting in biomass/sludge build-up, solid precipitates and/or potential toxicity from added metal salts. There is a hi ...

  3. Optimized CO2 Gas Sensor for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 822R

    The objective of the proposed work is to create low cost, low power sensors for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. In our Phase I effort, we showed that Dioxide Materials’ miniature CO2 sensors have the speed and sensitivity to meet NOAA’s requirements for sensing ocean carbon. The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the sensors so that they can be used directly in NOAA ...

  4. Photo-electro-catalytic Nano-air Filtration

    SBC: Advanced Technologies & Testing Laboratories Inc            Topic: 14NCER1C

    Advanced Technologies & Testing Laboratories (ATTL) proposes to develop a self‐regenerative nano-air filtration technology to not only remove gaseous pollutants from the air, but also to destroy them and regenerate the filter. The proposed technology will involve the further development of a photo‐electro‐chemical air filtration platform, which already has been developed into a highly effect ...

  5. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: Green Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Much attention has been focused of late on phosphorus pollution and algae blooms. However, the problems of phosphorus mining and consumption are much more complex and can be categorized into two distinct areas of concern: (1) phosphorus’ critical role in food production and the dwindling supply of phosphate rock reserves; and (2) the mining and use of phosphate and the environmental impact of ph ...

  6. Surface plasma-based decontamination for pathogen removal from water pipes

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER7A

    More than 280 million Americans depend on the safety of the tap water provided by their local water systems. Ensuring that safe, uncontaminated water flows through the tap means ensuring that the water flowing through the pipes connected to these taps is also kept uncontaminated. However, a common problem that ails most of these water pipes is biofilm formation, causing the water flowing through t ...

  7. Development of a Robust, Accurate, and Automated Method for Species and Origin Identification in Processed Seafood

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 81

    The accurate identification of seafood species and origin has become an extremely important topic in the food industry. Mislabeling a lower valued seafood product to represent a species of higher value constitute economic fraud. In addition, this mislabeling compromises proper geographic origin labeling and fishery management efforts. DNA barcoding for seafood species identification provides re ...

  8. Energy and Nutrient Extraction from Onsite Wastewater

    SBC: APPLIED ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A

    Onsite wastewater systems are a significant source of nutrient loading to the environment and there is a demand for technologies that remove nutrients at the source. Most desired are passive, low cost systems that can consistently remove ninety percent or greater nitrogen while having low energy input and easy operation. While numerous proprietary devices have been developed that typically emplo ...

  9. New Technology for Electricity Monitoring& Reporting Built into Electrical Receptacles and Switshes

    SBC: ThornProducts, LLC            Topic: D

    This EPA SBIR Phase I proposal addresses the need for more widespread electricity usage conservation and user cost reduction via behavioral changes and via efficiency improvement. Efficiency improvements are through equipment and appliance change out but also via long term efficiency monitoring. This needs to be a sustaining level of conservation and efficiency verification as opposed to a one t ...

  10. Evaluation of the 100% Recyclability of Superpave Hot Mix Asphalt

    SBC: HIP Paving, LLC            Topic: A

    "At 2.7 million miles of paved roads, the United States has the largest network of roads in the world. The mainstream approach to pavement rehabilitation has been to mill the deteriorated asphalt and replace with new asphalt mix. The hot in-place pavement recycling process has the potential of replacing the milling and resurfacing process with substantial financial and environmental savings. Ho ...
