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. An Enhanced Contact Plasma Reactor: A Competitive Remediation Technology for Per- and Perfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) Contaminated Water

    SBC: Dmax Plasma LLC            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have received considerable attention due to their toxicity, ubiquitous presence and recalcitrance. Manufacture and disposal of PFAS-containing products has resulted in PFAS contamination of numerous water supplies. Recent reports indicate the Air Force alone is expecting to spend > $2.25 billion for cleanup for PFAS-contaminated sites. Thus, there is a huge market ...

  2. Green Process for Plastic Chrome

    SBC: VERGASON TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    This green approach to manufacturing plastic with decorative chrome will eliminate health and environmental hazards from the chrome electroplating process. The US and global market for decorative chrome on plastic is 12 million m2/year and 84 million m2/year respectively, with 80% in automobile trim, 10% in appliances and 10% in sanitary fixtures. Without a viable commercial alternative, US provid ...

  4. Growth and Fungal Resin Generation for Manufacturing Novel, Formaldehyde-Free Wood Particleboard

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Engineered wood represents a $8.SB market in the United States annually. Resins instituted in the production of traditional engineered wood products (formaldehyde) have recently come under substantial scrutiny due to detrimental human heath effects. Ecovative is developing a drop-in replacement for engineered wood resins that is economically competitive and intrinsically safe. The mResin TM system ...

  5. Circuit board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic Waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the US. Significant amounts are recoverable for reuse, resale, and refining for precious metals. The disassemblers send circuit boards to refiners/smelters for precious metals recovery. E-Waste disassemblers remove parts from these circuit boards, so only certain parts are smelted. As such they are the key market for our depopulator. Refiners ...

  6. GlobalSense: A New Atmospheric Observing System Featuring Innovative Airborne Probes

    SBC: MANO NANOTECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 861X

    The underlying framework for modern-day weather forecasting is numerical weather prediction (NWP). Even the current and planned weather observing platforms leave gaps that are insufficient to meet the requirements of NWP. Mano Nanotechnologies, Inc. proposes a new environmental sensing system, known as “GlobalSense”, which will enable transformational forecast improvements by filing these crit ...

  7. Circuit Board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America. Significant amounts of e-waste are actually not waste, but rather components recoverable for reuse, resale or recycled for their precious metals. In 2010, 3,320,000 tons of e-waste were generated (per “Municipal Solid Waste Generation, Recycling and Disposal in the United States; Tables and Figures for 2012,” ...

  8. Mycological Biopolymer as a Replacement for Expanded Plastic Foams

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: B

    Plastics and petroleum-based foams are a conventional solution for the material needs of many industries. Today these non-biodegradable, fossil fuel derived products compose 13 percent of all municipal solid waste streams, as opposed to 1 percent in 1960. This waste stream is associated with a number of environmental concerns, including greenhouse gas generation from incineration, as well as land ...

  9. Growth of a Fungal Biopolymer to Displace Common Synthetic Polymers and Exotic Woods

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: B

    The use of plastic (polyethylene, Polypropylene, polyurethane and poly lactic acid) has grown and continues to grow steadily because of the materials’ high strength-to-weigh ratios, low cost, and ease of molding as compared to conventional natural materials. Unfortunately, almost all commercial plastics are notoriously unsustainable due to fossil fuel-based constituents, the wasteful and energy ...

  10. Development and Demonstration of a Low Embodied Energy, Construction Material that Replaces Expanded Polystyrene and Other Synthetic Materials

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: TopicC

    The MycoBond™ platform is an innovative material technology that converts industrial and agricultural byproducts into a high-performance, cost-competitive biocomposite.  Positioned as a direct replacement for hydrocarbon-derived synthetics, such as expanded polystyrene, MycoBond™ materials literally are grown in 5 to 7 days.  The vegetative growth of a filamentous fungus, myc ...
