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. Development and Demonstration of a Low Embodied Energy, Construction Material that Replaces Expanded Polystyrene and Other Synthetic Materials

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: TopicC

    The MycoBond™ platform is an innovative material technology that converts industrial and agricultural byproducts into a high-performance, cost-competitive biocomposite.  Positioned as a direct replacement for hydrocarbon-derived synthetics, such as expanded polystyrene, MycoBond™ materials literally are grown in 5 to 7 days.  The vegetative growth of a filamentous fungus, myc ...

  2. BIOSCRUBBING VOLATILE NITROAROMATIC POLLUTANTS FROM AIR: BENCH-SCALE FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS BY BIOSCRUBBING WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO THEIR FEASIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY IN BENCH-SCALE EXPERIMENTS. A MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM ENRICHED ON SELECTED NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS SUCH AS NITROBENZENE OR NITROTOLUENE WILL BE IMMOBILIZED ON A POROUS SOLID MATRIX PACKED INTO A SCRUBBING COLUMN. MEASURED VOLUMES OF AIR, CONTAINING KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NITR ...

  3. Ozone Biocidal Properties and Stimulation of Trichoderma harzianum (strain T-22) When Applied in Combination as an Environmentally Benign Alternative for Methyl Bromide

    SBC: BIOWORKS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Adaptive optics systems for imaging or beam projection through the atmosphere are designed to compensate for the optical effects of turbulence. These effects enter in as phase perturbations distributed along the propagation path. Conventional adaptive optics systems attempt to compensate for these effects by means of phase-only corrections applied at a plane conjugate to the apertur ...

  4. FROM HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL SITES

    SBC: Chesner Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY DESCRIBES THE RESEARCH CONDUCTED TO IDENTIFY THE VARIETY OF MOLD OR YEAST WHICH DEGRADES LEACHATE FROM HAZARDOUS WASTE LANDFILLS IN A COMPLETELY-MIXED, AEROBIC REACTOR. THE RESEARCH ALSO EXAMINES ALTERNATIVE PRETREATMENT STEPS WHICH MAY BE NECESSARY TO OVERCOME THE LIMITATIONS IN BIOLOGICAL DEGRADATION DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES OR NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES. FURTHER, THE RESEAR ...

  5. Testing the Viability of Agricultural Byproducts as a Replacement for Mineral Particles In a Novel, Low embodied Energy, Construction Material

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: N/A

    GreensulateTM is an affordable, biodegradable replacement for polystyrene/polyurethane foam building products, poised to replace petrol-foams in the rigid board insulation market. This patent pending technology uses the vegetative growth stage of a benign fungus (mycelium: P.ostreatus, I.obliquus, F.formentarius A.arvensis) to bond loose particles into a cohesive whole. The fungus operates as a ...

  6. A HAND-HELD LEAD DETECTOR

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE MID-EIGHTIES, APPROXIMATELY THREE MILLION CHILDRED BETWEEN SIX MONTHS AND FIVE YEARS OLD HAD POISONOUS BLOOD LEAD CONCENTRATIONS DUE TO PAINT. THERE IS RISK FOR ADULTS IN THE PAINT, AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING, AND CERAMIC INDUSTRIES. THE NATION COULD SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF LEAD POISONING IF ONE WERE ABLE TO MEASURE LEAD USING A INEXPENSIVE, PORTABLE DEVICE. CURRENT LEAD MEA ...

  7. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    We have previously reported a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposme nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology. This assay system is based upon the ability to immunocapture low numbers (i.e., five or more) oocysts and heat shock them to induc ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    Our successfully completed Phase I efforts demonstrated that exceeding low numbers (five or less) of oocysts from human pathogenic strains of Cryptosporidium, including C. parvum and C. hominis can be detected in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method combined with a rapid liposome nanovesicle based biosensor technology. Additionally, the Cry ...

  9. DIGESTION WITH AIR AERATION; PILOT PLANT ANALYSIS

    SBC: MICROGEN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PATHOGENS, TOXIC METALS, AND TOXIC ORGANICS OCCUR AT LOW CONCENTRATIONS IN MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER, BUT MANY OF THESE MATERIALS ARE CONCENTRATED THOUSANDS OF TIMES IN THE RESULT ING PRIMARY AND SECONDARY BIOLOGICAL SLUDGES. A REVIEW OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY'S (EPA) "SAFE SLUDGE" DESIGNATION FOR USE IN FOOD PRODUCTION SHOWS THAT NEARLY HALF OF ALL SLUDGES GENERATED CANNOT BE DEFINED AS " ...

    SBIR Phase I 1985 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. "SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION OF NON-VOLATILES FROM AQUEOUS AND NON-AQUEOUS MATRICES--A SAMPLE PREPARATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THEFIELD AND LAB"

    SBC: Nanco Labs Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION, A CURRENTLY DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGY MAY BE USED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLE PREPARATION. THE PRESENT METHODLOGY OF LIQUID/LIQUID EXTRACTION IS NOT PRAC- TICAL IN THE FIELD. MANY INVESTIGATORS HAVE STUDIED SOLID- PHASE EXTRACTION. HOWEVER, THESE WORKS ARE LIMITED TO NAR- ROW CLASSES OF COMPOUNDS. NO OVERALL METHODOLOGY IS AVAILA-BLE FOR PREPARING A SAMPLE CONTAMINATED WITH MULTIP ...
