  1. STTR Phase I: Overcoming Metabolic Pathway Limitations through De Novo Pathway Design for Terpenoid Biosynthesis

    SBC: MANUS BIOSYNTHESIS, INC.            Topic: EB

    This Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel, high flux terpenoid precursor pathway by circumventing limitations of the bacterial methyl erythritol-phosphate (MEP) pathway for the renewable production of monoterpenoids. Monoterpenoids are natural chemical precursors for several consumer products, and many are produced via highly polluting chemical processe ...

  2. STTR Phase I: STTR Proposal on Atmospheric Water Capture using Advanced Nanomaterials

    SBC: NBD NANOTECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: AS

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to significantly enhance water condensation heat transfer through the application of patterned surface coatings. These patterned coatings are expected to reduce unnecessary energy consumption caused by film-wise condensation mechanisms, typical in modern condenser systems. Instead, the proposed surfaces promote sustained ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Autonomous Electrochromic Windows Enabled by Visibly Transparent Energy Harvesting Coatings

    SBC: Ubiquitous Energy, Inc            Topic: AS

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project explores an autonomous electrochromic (EC) window enabled by a visibly transparent photovoltaic coating technology. EC windows, which transition from a transparent state to a dark state (and vice-versa) based on an electrical input, represent a promising pathway to increasing building energy efficiency by effectively regulating the solar flux ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Physics-based models of wind variability

    SBC: Enduring Energy, LLC            Topic: AS

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop quantitative models of wind variability to aid the design of reliable, low-carbon electric grid systems with high wind penetration. All abundant renewable resources are naturally variable, creating a challenge for their integra¬tion onto an ?always on? electric grid. While this variability challenge is now beg ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Wireless High Temperature Sensor for Real Time Monitoring of Power Generation Turbine Engines

    SBC: Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for the development of a wireless sensor for continuous and real-time measurement of the high temperature in gas turbines. The new sensor offers turbine manufacturers and owners/operators the capability to place small-sized sensors in hard to reach areas in the turbine, and transmit sensed data wirelessly thereby enabling heat loads to be ...

  6. 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: Rational design of highly sensitive and selective chemical sensors using structural color

    SBC: DrinkSavvy, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the development of sensor-embedded "smart" drinkware (i.e., stirrers, straws and cups) to actively alert consumers prior to consumption of a "spiked" beverage, and thus provide a proactive way to prevent drug-facilitated sexual assault. This sensor technology is based on "smart" molecularly im ...

  8. STTR Phase I: Low-Cost, High-Purity Biobased Glucaric Acid

    SBC: KALION, INC.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer(STTR) project is to develop a bio-based manufacturing process for glucaric acid and its intermediate, glucuronic acid. Microbial fermentation represents an attractive option for production of fuels and valuable chemicals from renewable resources, and glucaric acid can be produced from glucose, a renewable biomass-de ...

  9. STTR Phase I: Flexible Quantum Dot Light Emitting Devices for Photodynamic Therapy and Photobiomodulation

    SBC: QledCures LLC            Topic: PH

    The broader impact of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to enable a much wider adoption of various photomedical treatments. Broadly speaking, photomedical treatments use light to cure diseases and promote healing. Specifically, photodynamic therapy uses light to activate a photosensitizing chemical agent to kill cancer cells or bacterial with minimal side effects. M ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Intelligent Scoring of Inflammatory Skin Disease Progression

    SBC: 3Derm Systems, Inc.            Topic: DH

    The broader impact and commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to empower providers with the unprecedented ability to treat patients with chronic inflammatory skin disease effectively and at a lower cost. Today, primary care physicians often refer patients with these conditions to dermatologists for the initial diagnosis and multiple follow-up appo ...
