Catalysts For Electrochemical Conversion Of CO2

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: Richard Masel, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Rich Masel
Abstract:
The object of the proposed work is to develop better processes for the electrochemical conversion of CO2 into a high value chemical in a growing market. CO2 is one of the key causes of global warming. If we can recycle CO2 back into useful products, than the costs of meeting the Nation

SBIR Phase I: Sensors for indoor air quality

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Rich Masel
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a miniature gas chromatography system that can detect pollutants in homes and businesses and interface to an HVAC system for indoor air quality (IAQ) control. The device will use air as a carrier gas, and will be priced… More

Continuous Indoor Vapor Intrusion Monitoring System for Volatile Organic Compounds

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Rich Masel, CEO – (217) 239-1400
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The AF has a need for vapor intrusion alarms. Dioxide proposes a device that uses a preconcentrator, microGC and novel detector. The device will use The TO-15/17 protocol to scan for the compounds of interest to the air force. BENEFIT: This device will be useful for indoor air… More

Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 and Water to Syngas

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University Of Illinois
Principal Investigator: Rich Masel, CEO – (217) 239-1400
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Penny Weacer
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The… More

Award Amount: $649,132.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop inexpensive carbon dioxide sensors for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls. CO2 sensors are now being used to lower heating bills and improve air quality in new commercial buildings, but they have… More

Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NOAA
Principal Investigator: Zheng Richard Ni, Senior Scientist – (217) 239-1400
Award Amount: $95,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than… More
