Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is to complete the R&D to commercialize a novel catalytic technology for pollution control at ambient temperature. The novel technology will destroy VOCs using low temperature oxidation with a highly active class of novel Heteropoly Oxometalate (HPOM) catalysts. This new class of catalysts is dramatically more active than traditional platinum oxidation catalysts. The Phase II catalyst will provide new avenues for scientific research and education, by studying catalysis at mild conditions needed for advanced instrumentation at diverse geographic locations, and by expanding the applications to other societal needs in fuel cells, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, etc. Commercial applications will provide efficient, low cost industrial emissions control and enhanced indoor air quality. The firm's research facilities and prior SBIR licensing success will facilitate rapid deployment. The program should protect the nation's environment and improve economic competitiveness.
