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. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Commonly used water treatment approaches to mitigate phosphorus pollution and its consequences in small watersheds include the use of chemicals to precipitate phosphorus or algaecides to terminate algal growth. Both approaches require the addition of chemicals to the waterbodies resulting in biomass/sludge build-up, solid precipitates and/or potential toxicity from added metal salts. There is a hi ...

  2. Low-Cost Biological Solution for Reducing Carbon Pollution in Chemical Manufacturing

    SBC: INDUSTRIAL MICROBES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Industrial Microbes is developing a green fermentation platform to replace carbon-emitting petrochemical production with newer methods that build chemicals out of methane and carbon dioxide.Chemical production is a major source of carbon pollution, responsible for 18% of direct industrialemissions. Our innovation is an engineered microbe that can consume carbon dioxide and methane and produce a ch ...

  3. An Alternative Concrete Chemistry with Significantly Enhanced Durability, Sustainability, Economy, Safety and Strength

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 14NCER5A

    Manufacturing of Portland cement, the primary binder in concrete, accounts for ~7% of global CO2 emissions, 4% of energy use, and exhaustion of natural resources. Premature aging of concrete in infrastructure systems is another major concern.  A robust binder chemistry has been developed to overcome these drawbacks.  The original approach to production of this binder, however, is not compatible ...

  4. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  5. Cost-effective Molecularly Imprinted Polymer Based Monitoring Technologies to Improve the Performance and Reliability of Small Drinking Water Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 14NCER4B

    Small drinking water systems consistently provide safe, reliable drinking water to their customers; however challenges of such systems include; lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, lack of scale, and technical/logistical challenges associated with regulation compliance. The deployment ofnew cost-effective monitoring technologies hold opportunities to substantially advance infrastruct ...

  6. Isocyanate-Free Polyurethane Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER3B

    Polyurethanes are now made by reacting two components, one of which has toxic isocyanate groups. Isocyanates are especially hazardous to workers that spray-apply polyurethane paints. Researchers have developed less hazardous ways to make polyurethane, but they have poor performance, cure too slowly or are too expensive. In this project, TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) will develop new non-isocyanate two- ...

  7. High Flux Nanofiltration Membrane for Emerging Contaminant Control

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: 13NCERA1

    A variety of organic and inorganic contaminants originating from municipal, agricultural, and industrial wastewater sources are being found at increasing frequency in the Nation’s natural and drinking water supplies. These “emerging contaminants” include pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, steroids/hormones, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds, personal care products, and herbicides/pestici ...

  8. Biofuel Production from Grease Trap Waste

    SBC: Environmental Fuel Research, LLC            Topic: 13NCERF1

    Environmental Fuel Research, LLC (EFR-LLC), has demonstrated the technical feasibility of separating fats, oils, and greases (FOG) from grease trap waste (GTW) and converting FOG to biodiesel that can meet ASTM specifications. GTW is a dirty and low-value waste from the food service industry that is high in FOG and currently is treated as a liability. The EFR-LLC process uses a bubble column react ...

  9. Innovative Filters Using Nanomaterials for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants and Particulates

    SBC: ETSVP-JV, LLC            Topic: 13NCERD2

    A uniquely qualified team consisting of ETSVP-JV, LLC a small business joint venture, and subcontractor RTI International, are commercializing an innovative reactive nanofiber filtration media for controlling PM2.5 and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Materials developed for the Department of Defense to protect troops from chemical and biological agents are the foundation for next generation fil ...

  10. Using Software and Internet of Things Technology to Drive Behavioral Energy Savings in Commercial Buildings Using Building Orbs

    SBC: Lucid Design Group, Inc.            Topic: 13NCERF1

    Patterns of electricity generation and consumption in the United States have rapidly changed over the past decade and are forecasted to continue doing so in coming decades. On the supply side, increasing generation from renewable sources has raised concerns about the ability of the electrical grid to stay stable given renewables’ intermittent and distributed nature, and has increased calls for n ...
