The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

Download all award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

  1. Laser Diode Array for Multiple Pollutant Monitoring

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared tunable diode laser spectrometers provide a highly effective means of measuring trace concentrations, with either remote sensing or with advective sampling. It is often desirable to measure more than one trace gas at a time. This is especially true when gas emissions are strongly correlated, such as in combustion emissions where measuring both the CO2 concentration and another minor con ...

  2. Disposable Micromachined Flow Immunoassay for Field Detection of Contaminants

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect contaminants such as solvents, fuels, and pesticides in soil and water samples is now well established. Although ELISA and related methods can facilitate analysis of samples, several washing and separation steps are involved that require 30 to 120 minutes per sample to reach equilibrium. Recently, near infrared fluorescence immunoassa ...

  3. Measurement of Biological Contamination of Water

    SBC: Maine Research and Technology Co, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) can sometimes be used as a diagnostic device in biology and medicine. In general, LIF has difficulties in relating the fluorescence spectra to the concentration of the emitters within the tissue, in identifying different species, and in the possibility of destroying the molecules being probed if the wrong excitation wavelength is chosen. Many of the problems asso ...

  4. Phytoremediation of TNT-Contaminated Soils Using Plants Selected by a Four-Step Screening Procedure

    SBC: Phytokinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project involves the development of a phytoremediation technology for the cleanup of TNT-contaminated soils at the Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant (VAAP) in Chattanooga, TN (an upland site). Phytoremediation, the use of plants to clean up contaminated environments, has a great potential for soils contaminated with TNT. Recent discoveries suggest that intrinsic plant enzymes (not micr ...

  5. Energy Neutral VOC Oxidation Using a Fluorite-Catalyst/Compact Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N/A

    The need to reduce ozone in urban areas has led to increased regulation for the control of the ozone precursors¿namely volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides. However, current control technologies, such as incineration and adsorption on solids, have a number of disadvantages for the wide range of VOC-emitting industries. Catalysts provide an alternative control strategy. Recent ...

  6. Silica Materials for Mercury Recovery From Wastewater

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    A number of industrial processes generate wastewater with mercury contamination. Existing cleanup processes have difficulties in achieving low mercury discharge limits, especially in the presence of competing metal ions already below their discharge limits. Commercial ion exchange media are not selective for mercury, so other metal ions compete with mercury for binding sites. Consequently, excess ...

  7. Environmentally Safe NO/VOC Automotive Coatings/Prevention and Controls of VOCs

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Investigation of Catalysts to Enhance the Photo-Oxidation of Organics in Wastewaters

    SBC: Uv Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Novel Fiber Optic Biosensor for Pesticide Residue Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The problem addressed in this project is the need to monitor oxides of nitrogen(NOx, ie NO and NO2) levels in the combustion gases of stationary sources suchas power plants in order to facilitate on-line control of the scrubbers that willbe used to remove those pollutants. Since the measurements are in the parts permillion range, simpler and less expensive instruments than those currently used,su ...
