Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT7-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This SBIR Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of producing bio-based, environmentally benign, products for the prevention and treatment of corrosion and scale from low-value agricultural by-product streams. These by-products are generally available in large quantities and fairly uniform composition.

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-T003
Budget: 07/28/04 - 01/31/05

Fabrication procedures have been proposed to develop biofilm-containing appliques capable of mitigating the corrosion of aluminum aerospace alloys (e.g. AA2024-T3). The proposed methods are expected to produce surface protective flexible polymer coatings that containing bacterial biofilms capable of providing corrosion protection to the metal su...
