  1. Photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter

    SBC: MOGENE GREEN CHEMICALS, LC            Topic: G

    MOgene Green Chemicals will develop a novel photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter. Intensive agriculture practices, including the removal of residual crops, use of synthetic fertilizer and herbicides, and tillage practices, have led to lost organic matter, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and reduced capacity of the soil to store carbon. If ...

  2. Extremely Fast and Efficient Direct Contact Ultrasonic Drying for Roll to Roll Manufacturing

    SBC: ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: G

    This project has a very focused goal of developing direct contact ultrasonic dryer modules that can be retrofitted in a roll to roll manufacturing drying process. The proposed technology can create new paradigms shift in industrial drying technology which directly addresses one of the key ARPA-E mission areas in “advancing non-evaporative dehydration and drying technologies.” Invented in 2015 ...

  4. Advanced Catalyst Manufacturing Enabled by Direct Joule Heating

    SBC: HIGHT-TECH LLC            Topic: G

    Ammonia synthesis reactions, enabled by the Haber-Bosch process, account for approximately 3% of the world’s total energy use. Here, we propose a cascade reactor with a sequence of catalyst compositions which are tailored to a specific stage of the synthesis reaction. The various catalyst compositions are enabled by our novel, direct joule heating process for synthesizing high entropy alloy nano ...

  6. Model-Based Application of NIST Cybersecurity Standards

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: 90

    The proposed innovation will use a model-based approach to streamline understanding and application of standards. NIST standards addressing cybersecurity, presented in the form of documents, spreadsheets, and database tools, provide thousands of complimentary and overlapping items for users to track. Significant effort is expended understanding the standards before attention can be focused on the ...

  7. ENT:Extended Nestor Tagging

    SBC: RedShred, LLC            Topic: 90

    In order for manufacturers to adopt data-driven decision making, they must tap into unstructured data that sits unused. The process of annotation and knowledge extraction from unstructured text data is a time consuming and challenging bottleneck to adopting machine learning at scale.  This Phase I SBIR proposes implementation of an enhanced cloud-based platform enabling maintenance and other orga ...

  8. The Full Integration of a Portable Bacterial Concentrator with a Pathogen Detector Device

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: 90

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to integrate an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator with a handheld pathogen detection system to enable ultra-low cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including in Yemen, where in the first 5 months of 2020 has had 110,000 suspected cases. Current methods used to detect the chole ...

  9. Commercialization of NIST Technology for Separating Particles with Light

    SBC: PARMAN TECH, LLC            Topic: 90

    Parman Tech will build a first prototype embodying the NIST-owned technology ‘Optical Particle Sorter.’ The prototype will demonstrate feasibility of a commercial implementation of this technology. The prototype will also serve as the model for subsequent production of several beta-units to be used for obtaining customer feedback and eventually validation of the product.

  10. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...
