  2. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

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

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 14NCER5A

    Portland cement concrete is the most widely used construction material, and is a prevalent component of construction and demolition (C&D) waste. The large carbon footprint and energy content of Portland cement concrete; the constraints on its strength, durability and capability to encapsulate toxic elements; and the low value of C&D waste concrete have created a growing demand for alternative ceme ...
