Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-127
Budget: 01/21/00 - 07/31/00

The objective of this proposed work is to develop a novel high-performance catalytic microreactor that can be used to generate hydrogen through the autothermal decomposition of ammonia. The microreactor will operate with an extremely short residence time that is on the order of a millisecond. This chemical reactor configuration has two advanta...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-209
Budget: 10/28/99 - 12/29/00

Gradient Technology proposes to develop a compact and modular wetland system for the treatment of washrack effluent. The system was designed through the combination of best engineering practices and the latest in wetlands research, yielding a system that requires a fraction of the area as a typical constructed wetland. The "Compact Wetland Syste...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-180
Budget: 07/28/99 - 04/29/99

Gradient Technology proposes to continue to develop its cost effective environmentally friendly process for recycling plastic bonded explosives. This project will test explosive particle compatibility with Gradient's plastic bonded explosive recovery process. A laboratory scale demonstration of the recovery process will be performed with real pl...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98T020
Budget: 07/12/99 - 07/13/01

Gradient Technology developed a technology to recover valuable explosive components from polyurethane based plastic bonded explosives. Gradient Technology will design, construct, and demonstrate a transportable process plant that can fluid jet wash out plastic bonded explosives from a munition or rocket casing. The polyurethane binder in the res...
