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. High Sensitive Methane Sensor for Real-time Measurements of Methane Isotopes


    Determination of isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which have naturally occurring stable isotope forms ...

  2. Resonant Cavity Light Emitting Diodes for Infrared Gas Spectroscopy


    The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and intrinsic properties. Robust field testing to validate ...

  3. Development of a Sequence Capture Approach for Monitoring in situ Nitrogen Cycling Potential in Microbial Communities

    SBC: Glomics, Inc            Topic: 19b

    Microorganisms play key roles in environmental functioning and understanding their responses to environmental perturbation is critical in developing accurate climate change models, a need highlighted by the DOE. However, their phylogenetic and functional diversity, abundance in the environment, and lack of cultured status make them challenging to study. While there are several molecular methods av ...

  4. Diversifying and Adding Value to the Food Industry: Mealworm Powder as an Ingredient

    SBC: ALL THINGS BUGS LLC            Topic: 8.5

    Diversifying and Adding Value to the Food Industry: Mealworm Powder as an IngredientThe goal of this SBIR effort is to begin diversifying the insects as a food market currently valued at $105M and growing to $1.53 billion by 2021. Currently, crickets have been the primary focus of the market, but mealworms offer a strong alternative. To become competitive in the larger protein market, the insect b ...

  6. Fixed site and wearable monitors for assessment of personal exposure to airborne chemicals

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 113

    Project Summary Abstract People in all facets of life are exposed to volatile toxins that may cause them to unexplainably sicken The NIEHS Exposure Biology and Exposome Program has the ambitious and worthy goal to track a person s exposures from conception to death and correlate these with biological responses and health outcomes Achieving this goal will require numerous inexpensive sensors that ...

  7. Economic recovery and reuse of nutrients from wastewater

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 15-NCER-05

    Nutrient pollution caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus in the water is a costly and challenging environmental problem with widespread negative health and ecological effects. During Phase I XploSafe successfully confirmed the technical feasibility of using its proprietary low-cost biodegradable sorbents to passively adsorb target nutrient ions (ammonium, nitrate, urea, and phosphate) from prim ...

  8. Development of a Concentrated Winding PM Alternator for a Small Wind Turbine

    SBC: BERGEY WINDPOWER COMPANY, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Small wind turbines in the 5 – 25 kW range for rural residences, farms and small businesses have a large market potential due to the millions of suitable sites in the U.S. and overseas. But industry sales have declined in recent years as the costs of photovoltaics have dropped and state incentive programs have reduced. This is unfortunate because most of the equipment for solar power is importe ...

  9. GHz, Octavespanning Photodetectors for MWIR/LWIR


    Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in MWIR/LWIR detector performance, including: High speed (5 GHz); high sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz1/2); broad spectral response (Octave); and thermo-electric cooler (TEC) operating temperature. No existing detector meets these demanding performance parameters. Phase I successfully designed and demonstrated an octave s ...

  10. Pre-concentrator for Capture of Trace Fluorocarbons

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 9.01.08

    While fluorocarbons are released in relatively small amounts, they can have half-lives in the atmosphere as long as 50,000 years. However, they have extremely high global warming potential relative to other greenhouse gases, so that even small atmospheric concentrations can have large effect on global temperatures. For this reason, monitoring atmospheric concentrations of these compounds, identify ...
