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. Development of a Novel Virus Capture System Using Positively Charged Silica Matrix

    SBC: Scientific Methods, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II goals aim to build upon the successful feasibility study completed during Phase I study and to complete the research required to commercialize the functionalized silica beads for virus detection and point-of use treatment applications. The primary Phase II objectives are aimed at developing two products: (1) a virus `capture-and-release¿ bead for use in human enteric virus and co ...

  2. Etchant Recovery System

    SBC: Republic Anode Fabricators, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cupric chloride etchant is in wide use in the etching of copper, particularly in the manufacture of printed circuit boards. Currently, hazardous oxidants such as chlorine are used to regenerate this etchant. In addition, the hazardous waste generated must be hauled away and disposed of. The device under development will electrolytically regenerate the etchant without the addition of oxidizing c ...

  3. Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromotography: A 3-in1 Continuous, Automated Ambient-Fenceline-Fugative Emissions Instrument

    SBC: VOC Technologies            Topic: N/A

    VOC Technologies (VOCTEC) has developed patent-pending new technology for analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) by compressing an air sample to high pressure before injecting it into a specially designed gas chromatograph. This GC is constructed entirely

  4. Remote Real Time Monitor for Elemental Speciation of Air Particulates

    SBC: X-RAY OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Air particulate has been identified as a source of primary and secondary health risks. More than 5000 air particulate monitoring stations have been established in the United States, mostly for measuring the total mass and the size distribution. Real-time monitoring instruments for mass and size distribution are commercially available today. The network of monitoring stations performing chemical ...

  5. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are over 480,000 trucks on US roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs or CO, 11 lbs of particulates and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year, when idling, and producing auxiliary power needed for the drivers comfort. A Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU) is proposed to significantly reduce these emissions. The QRCFC overcomes challenges with current ...

  6. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor


    Polychlorinate biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago. Due to the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of transformers containing these chemicals, very specific regulations are in place which require quantification of PCBs in all transformer oil. The Toxic Substance Cont ...

  7. Catalytic Emissions Reduction Systems for Outdoor Wood Boilers

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: G

    There is growing concern about the particulate pollution emitted by outdoor wood-fired boilers (0WBs) and their related health effects. These systems are also referred to as outdoor wood-fired hydronic heaters or outdoor wood-fired furnaces. There are currently over 500,000 OWBs installed, primarily in the northern US. During the Phase I SBIR project, a catalytic combustor system that can be retro ...

  8. Pipeline-Quality Methane from Anaeronbic Digestion Streams

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: I

    Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If consumed properly, use of manure-derived fuels can also protect against environmental problems such as ...

  9. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    We propose to develop anew monitor that provides composition information of particles in the ultrafine (10-100 nm) fine (100 nm– 2.5 µm) and coarse (2.5 – 10 µm) size modes in near real time. Particle monitoring technologies are important for better characterization of the environmental, health and visibility effects of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosol particles. Current monitoring t ...

  10. 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 ...
