  3. STTR Phase I: Organic Additives to Improve Performance in Zinc-Air Batteries

    SBC: OCTET SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: CT

    This STTR Phase I project will remove the most critical roadblock to making long-lasting batteries from safe and economical zinc and air. Zinc is plentiful in the U.S. and zinc-air batteries have the potential to hold more than five times the energy of current lithium-ion batteries, but a key challenge for making rechargeable zinc-air batteries is that the zinc inside the battery naturally forms s ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Will stereoscopic 3D imaging improve brain aneurysm diagnosis?

    SBC: D3D Technologies Inc            Topic: DH

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to focus on the challenges neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons experience when visualizing complex brain aneurysms. Brain aneurysms, which occur in 2-3% of the population, are balloon-like dilations of a blood vessel supplying the brain which may rupture and result in severe headaches, paralysis, coma and death. Currently, radiologists viewing Magnetic Resonance Imag ...

  8. STTR Phase I: Scalable thermochemical conversion of carbon dioxide to commodity chemical intermediates

    SBC: CL CHEMICAL COMPANY            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this STTR project is to chemically recycle carbon dioxide, which would otherwise be released to the atmosphere, to useful fuels and products thus providing a closed loop for production and emissions for many common products. Virtually every industry uses petroleum and/or natural gas, either through transportation or plastics (e.g., packaging), and there i ...
