The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Membrane Materials with Improved Properties

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: 10a

    Currently the commercially available technologies for H2 separation such as pressure swing adsorption and cryogenic distillation are very energy intensive. Membrane technologies can be very energy efficient; but for high selective membranes low flux and high cost are the major challenges that frustrate commercialization. Recently, cermet has shown promise because of less precious metal usage and m ...

  2. Microfluidic Printing of High Performance Microgrids for High Efficiency, Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: ELECTRONINKS INCORPORATED            Topic: 09b

    Currently, indium tin oxide (ITO) is used as the transparent conductive anode in all commercial organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). However, ITO has economic and technological limitations for OLEDs such as high cost, brittleness, and poor performance. The primary objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I proposal is to demonstrate the microfluidic printing of substrate ...

  3. Nanoparticle Catalytic Discovery using Machine Learning Models with Chemisorption Inputs

    SBC: BIENA TECH LLC            Topic: 06a

    The mechanisms guiding nanocatalysis are poorly understood and extremely hard to model. Proposed effort attempts to provide a machine learning based platform that would guide the design of nanocatalytic materials for a variety of applications, beginning with the use of case of chloro-organic contaminant remediation. The current approaches either use conventional molecular dynamics coupled with ab ...

  4. Nickel-Based Amorphous Metal Membranes for Water Gas Shift Reactors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: 10c

    Hydrogen produced today from coal, natural gas, or biomass must be separated and purified outside the reactors using pressure swing absorption (PSA), a process that requires significant additional space and energy. Placing hydrogen-permeable membranes inside the reactors themselves would allow hydrogen to diffuse out, thereby reducing the cost of hydrogen production. In this Phase I effort, Mainst ...

  5. Novel Ceramic Membranes for Efficient Hydrogen Recovery

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: 26a

    The conversion of carbon-containing feedstocks to hydrogen and syngas will play important roles in the 21st century in the form of large plants for converting natural gas to liquids, hydrocarbons to chemicals, biomass to fuels and chemicals, and small units for powering fuel cells. Advancements in hydrogen membrane separation technologies have the potential to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and ...

  6. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...

  7. Oxygen Production and Delivery on Demand

    SBC: GLOBAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT INC            Topic: DHA17B005

    This proposal is in response to the Defense Health Agency 2017 Phase I SBIR topic 17B-005.The approach is the use of a membrane oxygen pump using newly developed nano-thickness membranes with all the layers less than 1 micron total.Nanometer thickness membranes enable more oxygen output per surface area at temperatures of 300-600 C than current state-of-the -art 600-800 C membranes that are 50-300 ...

  8. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    One of the major maintenance headaches causing increased operational cost in the production of mature oil wells is the elimination of wax and paraffin buildup in the production tubing. The accumulation over time of paraffin compounds in "cold spots" in the tubing creates high pressures and flow constrictions that contribute to accelerated pump wear, and constrict the flow of fluids to the surface. ...

  9. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...

  10. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to Liquids

    SBC: HIFUNDA LLC            Topic: 22c

    The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...
