  1. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  2. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, VOC-free and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coating based on its novel PTFE (Polytetraflouroethylene) fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents and vaporize during drying, creating a significant air quality impact. Even water-based formulations often require the use of fluorinated surfactant additives to ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankine Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    Current anaerobic digester systems are designed for capturing energy from waste from large heads of farm animals. GHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of anaerobic digesters, has stated that a minimum dairy heard size for economical implementation of a biogas system as 800 cows. These require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger, a limiting factor in economically scaling ...

  6. Novel Lignin-Based Magnetite Nanocomposites for Removal of Phosphate from Contaminated Waters

    SBC: SYNANOMET, LLC            Topic: B

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will explore the synthesis and use of novel lignin-derived carbon-magnetite nanocomposites for removal of aqueous phosphate– a run off pollutant from agricultural farms that leads to eutrophication of lakes and other water reservoirs. The intellectual property related to nanocomposite synthesis (and associated applications) is exclu ...

  7. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency develops and promotes innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promotes environmental stewardship. Testing and characterization of the environment for potentially harmful contaminants is a costly endeavor. Current technolo ...

  8. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    OPTRA has developed a novel approach to phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (PS-CRDS) using a Fourier transform infrared (FTlR) modulator to impose the spectrally-dependent amplitude modulation on a broadband JR light source. As with previous PS-CRDS measurements, we excite a resonant cavity with amplitude modulated energy and measure the phase shift of the modulated signal exiting the cavit ...

  9. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    "As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship. However, in adopting this strategy there will be an increasing need to implement a more cost effective, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Advanced Contaminant Inactivation System for Drinking Water

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: E

    "The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small ...
