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. Desulfurization of Biogas Derived from Animal Manure

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Farms and dairies generate byproducts containing more than 2 quadrillion Btu of energy per year. This energy is either not used at all or used in old and inefficient processes. Particularly, the use of biogas generated from bio-waste in distributed fuel cell systems presents a realistic, near-term solution that can yield large energy efficiency improvements. However, the biogas often contains rela ...

  2. Low-cost Removal of Dissolved Solids and Fermentation Inhibitors for Cellulosic Ethanol

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    While significant progress has been made in the conversion of cellulosic biomass to fuel ethanol, it has not yet been commercialized on a wide-scale because a number of important technical problems remain unsolved. If these challenges can be overcome, cellulosic ethanol is much more promising as a renewable bio-fuel than corn ethanol because it produces a much greater net greenhouse gas (GHG) emis ...

    SBC: TEA SPOT, THE            Topic: 89

    Within the past 2-3 years, an abundance of "eco-friendly" to-go hot beverage cups have appeared in the marketplace. Upon closer examination, many of these to-go cups for hot drinks have questionable environmental appeal and a strong "green-washing" market spin. The Tea Spot has designed a patent pending to-go system for loose leaf tea. Our plan is to manufacture these to-go systems for coffee and ...

  4. My Academic Plan

    SBC: SHW Enterprises            Topic: N/A

    My Academic Plan will be a web-based social-behavioral formative assessment intervention for eighth grade students. Students will take an initial online resiliency quiz and based on the responses the software will produce a personal plan across a series of dimensions. The intervention will be during class and will provide individualized tutorials. The intervention will include teacher professional ...

  5. Recovery Act- Scale-up of the Nanomanufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 09b

    There is significant opportunity for energy efficiency improvements in the industrial and manufacturing sectors in the U.S., both from the production and consumption perspective. Higher energy density battery materials will play a role in both, through improved storage of electricity from renewable sources, the enabling of electric vehicles, and through the development of longer lasting, higher po ...

  10. Recovery Act- Electromechanical Dewatering of Paper Pulp for Increased Energy Efficiency


    Paper production is an energy intensive business. Dewatering alone accounts for a significant portion of the energy cost of paper production; 4-5 million Btu are required per ton of pulp processed. Dewatering is carried out first by mechanical dewatering, and then by evaporation, which occurs when the paper web is rolled over multiple heated rollers. Reducing evaporative dewatering energy requirem ...
