  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  3. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  4. Second Generation Glass Fiber Composites Fabricated from Retired Wind Turbine Blades

    SBC: CARBON RIVERS LLC            Topic: 15c

    Glass fiber is the most common reinforcement material for all polymer composites (a $43.93 billion dollar market in 2017), including all wind turbine blades of which it’s estimated there will be over 4.8 million tonnes of by 2050. However, there exists no economical method of handling these composites once they reach end of life, meaning they are all currently destined for the landfill. For wind ...

  6. Health Monitoring of Digital I&C Systems Using Online Electromagnetic Measurements

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 30a

    Instrumentation and control systems in nuclear power plants are made of an assembly of analog and/or digital components which together emit a unique electromagnetic signature that relates to the condition of the whole assembly.This signature can therefore be recorded, analyzed, and tracked to determine the condition and health of instrumentation and control systems.This is very important to the nu ...

  8. Nanostructured Proton Exchange Membrane

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) remains one of the most significant cost components of the fuel cell (FC) stack. Development of a low-cost PEM suitable for rapid commercialization of FCs, with a wide range of desired characteristics meeting the DOE performance targets is the subject of this project. This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to design, develop, and produce ...

  9. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  10. The Development of a Stabilized SEI Layer for Si-Containing Lithium Ion Battery Anodes

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 13a

    This project focuses on the development of new lithium ion battery (LIB) electrolyte/cathode combinations that enable stabilized solid electrolyte interphases (SEI) on Si- based materials. This effort focuses on negative electrodes combining synthetic graphite and Si- based materials, where Si contributes at least 30% of the reversible capacity of the electrode. This effort will result in signific ...
