  2. SBIR Phase I: A Controlled Cavitation Reactor for Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis

    SBC: Maverick BioFuels, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project offers a completely new and novel approach to convert biomass to a gasoline-replacing mixed alcohol biofuel. The new approach uses a unique reactor called a controlled cavitation reactor (CCR). Specifically, the CCR provides a uniform source of heat by use of small bubbles in a non-reactive liquid; thus, facilitating heat transfer and ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Preventing Biofilms on Indwelling Medical Devices with Novel Anti-Biofilm Small Molecules

    SBC: AGILE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project describes a new approach for reducing infections associated with indwelling medical devices. Bacteria on medical devices are particularly challenging to treat because they form a protective matrix called a biofilm on the surface of the device. It is very difficult to access bacteria in the biofilm state, and systemic use of antibiotics ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Surface Texturing For Inhibiting Bacterial Biofilm Formation (Machining Process And Machine Tool System Development)

    SBC: MICROLUTION, INC.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will enable the manufacture of Sharklet patterns on metallic surfaces. A Sharklet pattern is an engineered micro-surface texture that mimics the texture of shark skin and inhibits bacterial biofilm growth without the use of anti-microbial agents. The Sharklet surface texture technology has been successfully produced in soft materials u ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Heat Pipe for Ground Source Heat Pump

    SBC: Forthright Engineering LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop an earth heat exchanger that has a lower installation cost, lower operating cost, and smaller footprint than the currently available ground source heat pumps. High ground loop installation costs are the primary barrier to broader acceptance of ground source heat pump technology despite its efficiency advantage. By replacin ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Thin Film Patterned Optical Retarders for Low Energy Smart Glass Applications

    SBC: Lono LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a low-cost smart-window technology. This project will utilize contemporary display industry fabrication and processing technologies to create unique large area optical films. These films will be subsequently used to construct energy efficient smart-windows that modulate transmission or reflection of light on command. Windows, sky ...
