$2.9 Million in Small Business Contracts for New Environmental Technologies

Abstract:
EPA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program today announced the award of nearly $3 million to 13 companies to support their work in seven key environmental areas: nanotechnology, monitoring of air emissions, pollution prevention, hazardous waste management, water treatment, homeland security, and innovation in manufacturing. The companies received "proof of concept" awards from EPA last year and will use these additional funds to move their technology towards commercialization.

# Two companies are exploring the use of cutting-edge nanotechnologies to address environmental problems:
# PolyNew Inc., based in Golden, Colo., is developing and commercializing next-generation bioplastics using nanotechnology to address environmental concerns associated with conventional plastics.
# Applied Sciences Inc., located in Cedarville, Ohio, is developing a technology that uses carbon nanofibers instead of solvent-based primers to electrostatically paint cars.
