  2. SBIR Phase II: Employing a New Class of Chemosensors for Continuous, Real-Time Measurement of Heavy Metals in Wastewater

    SBC: AquaMetals, LLC.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project uses a new class of chemosensor films to continuously measure the concentration of heavy metals in a flowing stream of industrial wastewater. This will make it possible to know the concentration of several heavy metals at any given time so that treatment chemicals used to remove those metals can be metered precisely. Current treatment ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Vacuum Glass for R10 Windows

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 10a

    The one remaining barrier to achieving a marketable R-10 window is the high manufacturing cost of solderglass-sealed vacuum glass. To remedy this, edge seal material must be changed from meltable solderglass to cold-weldable aluminum foil, speeding up the manufacturing rate by over 700X. Phase I research showed that rod-shaped pane spacers, or whiskers, are the best shape available. They can enabl ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Refining a 3-month release buprenorphine, advancing a drug delivery platform

    SBC: Plumb Pharmaceuticals LLC            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a very long-acting buprenorphine formulation to increase patient compliance and address the opioid crisis. Poor medication compliance is a significant driver of health care costs. The US would save an estimated 290 billion dollars yearly or 13% of the total health care budget if patients took their medications as directed. Patients with chronic diseases are t ...
