The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

Download all SBIR.gov 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.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Multivariate Impedance Spectroscopy Sensor Based on 3D Graphene

    SBC: LYTEN, INC.            Topic: DHS211010

    Standard explosive detection technologies for checked baggage heavily rely on an x-ray imaging system that detects bulk materials based on their atomic number and density.Although this approach works well for identifying commercial and military explosives, improvised explosives are more difficult to detect due to high variations in their chemical composition and purity.Adjusting the detector param ...

  2. Bio-inspired Lixiviants for Selective Extraction of Valuable Metals from Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator Ash

    SBC: LIXIVIA, INC            Topic: M

    Metals such as rare earths, copper, cobalt, and nickel continue to be critical to the energy industry and advanced technology applications. Traditional mining of these elements is predominantly located in far-flung regions of the world. MSWI ashes represent a unique opportunity as a source for some of these metals here in the U.S. The current unit cost of metal extraction and refinement, particula ...

  4. DESIGN OF SMART MICRO-FLARE FLEET TO MITIGATE DISTRIBUTED METHANE EMISSIONS

    SBC: Frost Methane Labs Co.            Topic: T

    Methane emissions are responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas warming. A proven, economical way of mitigating these emissions is to find high-flow methane sources and convert the methane stream into carbon dioxide, using flares or generators, mitigating 96% of the warming effects. We propose to develop a miniature methane flare, capable of handling emissions from sources in the range of 10-200 tonne ...

  5. Integration of Ultrahigh Capacity Sorbents into Direct Air Capture Systems

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T

    Addressing climate change from greenhouse gas emissions to prevent continued global warming will be done with a suite of technologies. Direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide (CO2) is receiving significant attention as a way to reverse these emissions, however, it is a relatively new technology that will require continued technology development for viable cost targets to be realized. DAC is sig ...

  6. Non-Equilibrium Plasma for Energy-Efficient Nitrogen Fixation

    SBC: NITRICITY INC.            Topic: T

    Nitricity is developing a technology that produces nitrogen fertilizer using inputs of air, water, and renewable electricity. If successful, this technology has the potential to economically decarbonize fertilizer production from the Haber-Bosch process, which is a $68B global market and gigaton CO2eq/yr mitigation opportunity. Our team has developed a plasma-based process that couples with on-far ...

  7. Development of Carbon-Conserving Biosynthetic Systems Co-Utilizing C1 and Biomass Derived Feedstocks

    SBC: ZymoChem Inc            Topic: 1

    Herein, Zymochem, Inc., in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), proposes to develop carbon- and energy-efficient biocatalysts capable of co-conversion of C1- and biomass-derived substrates to a high-volume platform fuel and chemical intermediate. We propose to demonstrate a carbon conserving decoupled growth & production (DGP) process to enable improved carbon efficien ...

  8. Engineering of Scalable Platinum-free Electrodes for Pure-Water AEM Water Electrolysis

    SBC: EVOLOH, INC.            Topic: T

    Producing green hydrogen using renewable energy can reduce emissions for major domestic industrial sectors which use hydrogen as a feedstock like ammonia fertilizer, refineries, chemicals and steel. Additionally, green hydrogen can be used to reduce dependencies on foreign energy sources as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty vehicles, a long-duration energy storage medium, or as a natural gas re ...

  9. Increasing Carbon Drawdown and Retention in Terrestrial Biomass using Bioengineered Trees

    SBC: Living Carbon PBC            Topic: T

    Carbon drawdown and retention in terrestrial biomass is currently limited by the rate of photosynthetic assimilation and of decay of lignocellulosic biomass respectively. Living Carbon is developing innovative methods of reducing the susceptibility of vegetative biomass to decay by lignotrophic fungi, thereby reducing the rate of release of carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere through fungal resp ...

  10. A transformative low cost approach for Direct Air Mineralization of CO2 via repeated cycles of ambient weathering of metal oxides

    SBC: EQUIOPPS, INC            Topic: T

    Increasing concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere poses a threat to the global climate. One promising method for reducing atmospheric CO 2 is a repeated enhanced weathering process. Enhanced weathering is a process where a natural reaction between CO 2 gas and minerals rich in magnesium and/or calcium is accelerated to quickly form a solid carbonate. The cycle can be repeated by separating the CO ...
