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. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of

  2. Ultra-Thin, Magnetic Polymer Membranes for the Selective Removal of Macronutrients in Wastewater

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Phosphorous and nitrogen are valuable nutrients found in wastewater. The flow of phosphorous from rocks to the natural waterway has increased in recent years, due in large part to agricultural production. In addition to being a nutrient, phosphorous is a contaminant in aquatic environments that leads to the formation of organic material and algae. Recovery of phosphorous from wastewater will ensur ...

  3. Economic recovery and reuse of nutrients from wastewater

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 15NCER05

    Nutrient pollution caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus in the water is a costly and challenging environmental problem with widespread potential for negative health and ecological effects. The proposed solution to this problem is the capture of ammonium, urea, nitrate and phosphate on low-cost biodegradable sorbent pellets that upon saturation, with the nutrients can be employed directly as sl ...

  4. Building Materials from Scrap Tires and Waste Plastics

    SBC: PROFESSIONAL ANALYTICAL AND CONSULTING SERVICES INC            Topic: 15NCER06

    Two major waste streams, thermoplastics and used automotive tires, need a technological and economic method to decrease their entry into our environment. Both have long life-cycles as waste, causing many deleterious environmental problems. The Phase I, II , and Ill goal is to divert plastic and tire waste and its pollution away from landfills and the environment into transformational new technolog ...

  5. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

  6. Encapsulation of Biological Contaminants in Transportation Systems

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 15NCER07

    TIAX has developed a technology that meets the EPA' s need for decontamination of biological material in railway and subway cars. It provides simultaneous encapsulation and killing of biological contaminants with the added capability for decontamination of chemical and radiological hazards. Current technologies are manpower intensive involving separate steps for site preparation; decontamination; ...

  7. Radio Frequency Catalytic Decontamination

    SBC: Zeteo Tech LLC            Topic: 15NCER07

    The novel RFCAT technology will allow for safe and rapid decontamination of biological agents on railroad and subway cars. The technology creates biocidal conditions on external and internal surfaces of the rail and subway cars. The technology has been demonstrated on building materials and will be modified for the surfaces found in rail and subway cars. Additionally the system will kill odor and ...

  8. Circuit board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic Waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the US. Significant amounts are recoverable for reuse, resale, and refining for precious metals. The disassemblers send circuit boards to refiners/smelters for precious metals recovery. E-Waste disassemblers remove parts from these circuit boards, so only certain parts are smelted. As such they are the key market for our depopulator. Refiners ...

  9. Production of Bio-Rejuvenated Recycled Shingles (BR2S) for Pavement Construction

    SBC: BIO-ADHESIVE ALLIANCE, INC            Topic: 14NCER5B

    This SBIR Phase II proposal provides a sustainable solution for two major environmental challenges in the agriculture and building industry. In the agriculture industry, swine manure treatment is a major problem, both environmentally and economically. Currently, more than 120 million hogs being produced in the US per year, generating more than 6 billion gallons of swine manure that must be treated ...

  10. Phosphorus recovery and high efficiency biological nutrient removal from wastewater with an innovative aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactor process

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Phosphorus is a nutrient essential to all life, yet phosphate rock used for fertilizer is a finite resource which is rapidly being depleted. Yet, excess phosphorus from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is causing eutrophication and degradation water quality. There is a critical need for wastewater treatment technologies that will remove and recover more phosphorus for beneficial use in food pro ...
