  1. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  2. Development of Innovative Broad-Spectrum Analysis Methods for PFAS

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    This SBIR addresses EPA’s need for improved sampling and analysis technologies to detect Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). PFAS are used in firefighting sprays, at airports, and for wild fires, and have been used in textile treatments (e.g., it is a component in Scotchgard). It is estimated that 65 million Americans are at risk of PFAS exposure in their drinking water. Seacoast propose ...

  4. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy. These advances must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $ ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 Environmental Protection Agency


    Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced per year most will require 500 years to biodegrade. Currently only 9% is recycled, and 50 million tons of thermoset plastic produced annually that can't be recycled. _x000D_ _x000D_ This project will develop a sustainable and easily biodegradable polycarbonate plastic that is uniquely a recyclable thermoset resin. We call it a thermosetting thermoplastic ...

  8. Fiber Laser with Enhanced Coupling

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: A17136

    To address the Armys need for a novel approach that enables pump combiners with improved coupling efficiency for high-power fiber laser systems, Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop a new Fiber Laser with Enhanced Coupling (FLEC) that minimizes excess heat generation in fiber lasers via efficient mode scrambling of the pump light in the cladding of the active fiber. Specifically, we wi ...

  10. On-Demand Cell and Tissue Biologics for Mass Casualty Response

    SBC: X-Therma Inc.            Topic: A16050

    A key bottleneck to be addressed in regenerative medicine is hypothermic preservation of cells and tissues, which has been shown to extend survival of cell and tissue-based therapies by decreasing ischemic effect. However, current preservation technology is aged, toxic and less effective than desired, hindering efforts to repair traumatic injury and chronic disease using new cell and tissue-based ...
