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. Feasibility of rPET Lignin-Content Polylols for Significant Reduction of Halogenated Flame Retardant in Construction Spray Foam

    SBC: Resinate Materials Group, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6A

    This EPA SBIR Phase I Research and Development proposal will demonstrate feasibility of reduction in halogenated flame retardant use in polyisocyanurate foams prepared from lignincontent rPET polyols. The study will show whether or not the lignin rPET polyol formulations meet ASTM flame retardancy standards and thus reduce or eliminate the need for halogenated fire retardants (HFRs) in spray foams ...

  3. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  4. Repurposing Lithium Ion Batteries for Light Duty Stationary Applications

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: 171OS1

    The project team believes that scalable battery modules, a scalable packaging strategy, a scalable BMS design, and a standardized re-manufacturing process are the missing links necessary to establish a robust repurposed and second-life lithium-ion battery supply chain. The modular and scalable approach will also allow Navitas and GBS to serve markets outside of the transportation industry improvin ...

  5. Driver Assistant for Intelligent Safety (DAISY)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: 151FH1009

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low-level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech and its partners, UMTRI and Delphi Automotive, propose to develop DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system ...

  7. Zero-Emission Reconstituted Wood Panels for Building Interiors

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Organic resin-bonded reconstituted wood products, including oriented strandboard (OSB) and medium density fiberboard (MDF), are major sources of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released to the building interior, that are harmful to human health. The main thrust of this project is to significantly reduce the release of VOCs by replacing organic resins with inorganic polymer binders in reconst ...

  8. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    Accessing a freight locomotive is one of the most basic, daily tasks performed by a railroad engineer. However, this task has historically been difficult due to several factors such as the first step which may be 19 inches above the top of the rail, weather conditions which may make the steps slippery, and the fact that the ground surrounding the locomotive may be uneven or covered in debris or ba ...

  9. An Alternative Concrete Chemistry with Significantly Enhanced Durability, Sustainability, Economy, Safety and Strength

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 14NCER5A

    Manufacturing of Portland cement, the primary binder in concrete, accounts for ~7% of global CO2 emissions, 4% of energy use, and exhaustion of natural resources. Premature aging of concrete in infrastructure systems is another major concern.  A robust binder chemistry has been developed to overcome these drawbacks.  The original approach to production of this binder, however, is not compatible ...
