  2. Micro Channel Electrochemical Production of Dimethyl Carbonate

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: B

    Presently, there are no U.S. manufacturers for producing dimethyl carbonate (DMC), an environmentally benign and nonflammable solvent used in numerous applications. This strategically important solvent is used in numerous products, ranging from batteries to plastics, with most production occurring in China. DMC is a favored solvent for lithium ion batters due to its low volatility and nonflammable ...

  3. High Flux Nanofiltration Membrane for Emerging Contaminant Control

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: A

    A variety of inorganic and organic contaminants originating from municipal, agricultural and industrial wastewater sources are being found with increasing frequency in the Nation’s natural and drinking water supplies. These “emerging contaminants” include pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, steroids, hormones, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds, personal care products, and herbicides and p ...

  4. Solid State Sensor System for Inspection of Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A

    An important type of water pipe is the Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP). There are thousands of miles of PCCP installed in the US in sections with length up to 20 feet and diameter for 2 to 14 feet. The large size of the pipes, the thickness of the concrete (up to 10 inches) and the composite construction, which involved concrete, high strength prestressing steel wires and sheet steel c ...

  5. Fuel Flexible Low Emissions Burner for Waste-to-Energy Systems

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: F

    Waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies are being developed that combine waste management and energy generation. Theses wastes include a wide range of bio-based fuel stocks (biomass from wood and/or grasslands) or organic waste streams (manure and farm waste, municipal solid waste (MSW), sawdust). Much ingenuity is being directed to producing liquid fuels or useful solids such as char from biomass, b ...

  6. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential dens ...

  7. A Low-Cost Rare Earth Elements Recovery Technology

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: B

    Physical Sciences Inc. and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research propose to develop a unique enabling technology to significantly reduce U.S. dependency for Rare Earth Elements (REE) on foreign suppliers and our global competitors. Our innovation is a process that utilizes very inexpensive and abundant domestic raw materials for high-yield and low-cost generation of REE in ...

  8. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and“green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from tr ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, solventless and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coatings based on its novel PTFE fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents that when liberated during the drying process may have a significant air quality impact. The drying/curing process may also be energy intensive, requiring additional consumption of f ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Recycling of Greenhouse Gases to Fuels & Chemicals

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: D

    "Technologies that prevent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission from natural and man-made sources are needed to address the environmental and human health implications of climate change. One approach is to capture the GHG emissions and secure them in long term storage, i.e., carbon sequestration. However, current carbon sequestration technologies may: A) produce undesirable by products; B) contamina ...
