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. Inexpensive, Rapid and Comprehensive Virulence and Marker Gene (VMG) Analyzer for Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: AquaBioChip, LLC            Topic: TopicE

    Every year, an estimated 19.5 million illnesses occur in the United States due to consumption of unsafe drinking water and result in productivity losses of the order of $20 billion. The burden of waterborne illnesses is expected to increase due to the emergence of more virulent microorganisms and an increase in the number of sensitive subpopulations, which include older people, young children, pre ...

  2. Development of a Simple, Robust, and Inexpensive Alkalinity Sensor

    SBC: Technology Specialists            Topic: TopicE

    The increasing use of membrane filtration in water treatment application has focused greater attention on the need to optimize chemical pretreatment to minimize membrane fouling; for example, the City of Minneapolis draws water from the Mississippi River and has found that control of lime-softening is critical to protect its new ultrafiltration plant. Alkalinity is a fundamental and widely measure ...

  3. Commercialization of Solid Acid and Base Catalysts Derived from Biochar Optimized to Produce Biodiesel from Low Cost Oils

    SBC: Down to Earth Energy (formerly Mountain Creek Enterprises)            Topic: TopicG

    Down to Earth Energy will scale up and commercialize reusable and recoverable solid, porous acid and base catalysts for biodiesel production using biochar generated from agricultural and forestry residues (i.e., a sustainable biomass). The Phase I feasibility study using an acid catalyst made from biochar (peanut hulls, pine pellets, and pine chips) showed high efficiency methylation of fats and o ...

  4. Through-Tool Drilling with Supercritical CO2 Metal Working Fluids

    SBC: Fusion Coolant Systems, Inc.            Topic: TopicB

    Metal working fluids (MWFs) are designed to cool and lubricate manufacturing operations. This $1 billion industry has not changed much in decades and today has a number of problems, including an inability to meet new machining challenges (e.g., titanium machining in aerospace applications), Employee Health and Safety (EH&S) concerns, toxic waste disposal, and cost. Today’s MWFs represent ...

  5. Economic Capture of CO2 with Amines and Ionic Liquids Tethered in the Gas Phase

    SBC: INTELLIMET            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop CO2 absorption columns with rates of production that will enable CO2 capture for less than $20 per ton of CO2. The research will make use of a nano-composite sorbent material called interstitial “Spiderwebs”TM. The Spiderweb material was conceived to overcome a fundamental kinetic limitation of conventional solid sorbents for molecular and io ...

  6. Mill Trials of a Novel Formaldehyde-Free Soy-Based Wood Adhesive for Making Plywood

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, and flooring, and are predominately made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. A new formaldehyde-free, environmentally friendly wood adhesive that mainly consists of abundant, renewable and readily available soybean flour and a novel curing agent have been developed in a laboratory. The novel cu ...

  7. Handheld Detection System for TCE and PCE

    SBC: DEFIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: TopicC

    The concept of this SBIR project is to employ a hand-held sensor system to monitor groundwater. This concept recognizes the need for users to query field sensors remotely to report on concentration of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE). The missing part of this concept is a low-power sensor system that can reliably analyze groundwater for these contaminants. Defian ...

  8. Advanced Mixed Oxidation and Inclusion Technology

    SBC: ENCHEM ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: TopicI

    Coal tar contaminants, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) currently are difficult to treat in a timely and cost-efficient manner. The generally poor performance of conventional PAH treatment schemes, such as soil flushing or bioremediation, has led to research application of innovative in situ remediation methods. This project focuses on the in situ destruction of recalcitrant coal tar ...

  9. Performance and Design Development for Compost technology used in Green Infrastructure, Green Building, and Urban Storm Water Applications

    SBC: Filtrexx International, LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Green builders and designers, urban planners, engineers and architects, and watershed manager working with green infrastructure, low impact development (LID), storm water management, water quality improvement, total maximum daily load (TMDL) designated stream segments, and carbon footprint reduction programs need more high performance, cost-effective, green technologies to design and implement in ...

  10. Silane-Terminated Aliphatic Polycarbonate Dendrimer Solutions for Environmentally Green Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Polyurethane (PU) coatings continue to be a detriment to the environment. As long as compliance leads to higher costs for coatings manufacturers and applicators, tighter regulation will lead to increased resistance by these companies or ultimately will shift production to less-regulated areas. The ideal situation would be if environmentally friendly practices led to lower costs for coatings manufa ...
