5 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Missouri, Columbia

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: Henry Liu

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will test the feasibility of producing lightweight building materials from fly ash, suitable for making roofing tiles, wall boards and insulation materials for buildings. A byproduct of coal-f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: Henry Liu

Most biomass materials, such as switchgrass and corn stover, are very bulky (fluffy) when first collected,making them costly to handle, store, and transport. Current densification methods ¿ include baling, pelletizing, etc, ¿ are too costly, too energy-intensive, or both. A better method to solve these problems is needed to enhance the utiliz...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07
PI: Henry Liu

Due to large increase in the price of oil, propane, natural gas and electricity, the nations farmers are paying high costs for heating buildings. The problem can be mitigated by using biomass materials that exist, and are currently underutilized, on farms. This research seeks to develop a new technology to compact and burn biomass for heating bu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06
PI: Henry Liu

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project has the objective of conducting R&D needed for commercialization of new technology to make bricks using fly ash, which is a byproduct or waste material generated at coal-fired power plants. Research conducted under Phase I demonstrated that the known freeze/thaw problem of fly ash b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04
PI: Henry Liu

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new method to make bricks using fly ash, which is a byproduct or waste material generated at coal-fired power plants. This new method for making bricks is simple and effective. It uses pressure instead of high temperature to make bricks, thereby reducing cost and cons...
