  3. SBIR Phase I: High-Salinity Produced Water Management by Recovering Solid Waste with Low Grade Thermal Energy

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES., LLC            Topic: ET

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this SBIR Phase I project is to develop a desalination system powered by solar energy. Water is used for lithium and rare metal mining, requiring energy-efficient water treatment to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. This type of water treatment in mineral recovery systems can yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Many lithium and rar ...

  6. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  8. 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 ...
