Abstract:There is great demand for low energy dewatering technologies to harvest very fine particulate, such as microalgae. Current dewatering methods (e.g. centrifuge, press filter) consume much energy and are less effective for separating high value micro-particulate. One promising method for very low… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Powder-bed based additive manufacturing (AM) technologies typically involve rapid solidification after a laser or electron beam melts a region of powder. Although parameters can be optimized for lowest cost, highest precision, or optimum microstructure, these optimizations require… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Powder-bed based additive manufacturing (AM) technologies typically involve rapid solidification after a laser or electron beam melts a region of powder. These powders can have an associated cost as much as an order of magnitude greater than the bulk material. Although less costly powders… more
Abstract:Since 2008, the United States has experienced a fundmental shift in energy resources and policies that are now changing the power generation industry. New Federal EPA regulations and State renewable energy portfolio standards have increased the pressure on coal-fired power plants to reduce… more
Abstract:With increasingly stringent regulation of nitrogen oxide emissions, there is a world-wide need for better NOX sensor products for both transportation and industrial markets. Currently, only one sensor is commercially available, and it lacks the low concentration accuracy and fast response time to… more
Abstract:In this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project, NexTech Materials proposes a catalytic reforming approach to remove waste tar from gasified biomass on nickel-based catalysts. Biomass gasification is a potential renewable route to producing electricity, liquid fuels, and value-added… more
Abstract:For solid oxide fuel cells the key barrier to technology commercialization is the high system cost, which is driven by materials selection. The use of steel components would be preferable but without protective coatings they are susceptible to oxidation and chromium volatilization in air and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project investigates a new series of low-cost non- precious metal catalysts for selective catalytic reduction (SCO) of NH3 to N2. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO with urea is widely applied for abating NOx emissions in diesel engine vehicles… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates a new series of low-cost non-precious metal catalysts for combustion of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as propane, hexane, toluene, ketone, alcohols, phenols, xylene and formaldehyde, for reducing VOC emissions from… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will evaluate a low cost ceramic coating process to protect copper and its alloys from high temperature corrosion. The excellent thermal conductivity, workability, and relative chemical inertness of copper and its alloys make them… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an orphan disease characterized by severe anemia, kidney and liver failure, and ultimately death, if left untreated. In 2007, FDA approved the first complement inhibitor, Eculizumab (Soliris(R)), for the treatment of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Complement system play a role in preventing inflammation and joint immobility. Osteoarthritis (OA), an inflammatory disease of the joints, is quite prevalent among the elderly and causes disability in nearly 10% of thepopulation over 55 years. Current… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this proposal is to develop tumor necrosis factor (TNF )-inhibiting compounds as neuroprotectant drugs for treating Alzheimer's disease (AD).

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
