    1. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Environmental Technology Council Brown Bag Seminar December 16, 2004 April Richards

    2. Federal SBIR Program • Set-aside program for small businesses to engage in federal R&D -- with potential for commercialization • Budget = 2.5 % of Federal R&D Budget • Over $ 2 Billion in 2004

    3. Eligibility • Organized for-profit U.S. business • At least 51% U.S.-owned • Located in the U.S. • 500 or fewer employees

    4. 11 Participating Agencies • Department of Defense (DOD) • Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) • National Aeronautics & Space Admin (NASA) • Department of Energy (DOE) • National Science Foundation (NSF) • Department of Homeland Security (DHS) • Department of Agriculture (USDA) • Department of Commerce (DOC) • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) • Department of Transportation (DOT) • Department of Education (ED)

    5. Mission • EPA: • Protect human health and the environment – air, water and land • EPA SBIR: • Develop and commercialize innovative environmental technologies needed by EPA regions, program offices and states

    6. EPA SBIR Budget • FY03 - $6.8 million • FY04 - $6.3 million • FY05 - $5.5 million • FY06 - $5.5 million

    7. EPA SBIR Awards • Phase I • Proof of Concept • $70,000 • 6 months • Phase II • Develop Phase I technology with focus on commercialization • Up to $345,000 (with options) • 15 months

    8. SBIR Success Rate

    9. EXTERNAL PEER REVIEW EPA RELEVANCY REVIEW AWARDS APPLICATIONS Proposal Evaluation and Selection

    10. External Peer Review • Ratings: • Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor • Five Criteria: • Scientific/Technical Quality and Soundness • Uniqueness and Originality • Cost Effectiveness and Environmental Benefit • Qualifications of Team • Commercialization Potential

    11. Internal Relevancy Review • EPA Internal Programmatic Review • Review only those proposals rated Excellent and Very Good • Evaluate Proposals on 3 Criteria: • EPA Needs and Program Priorities • Significant Environmental Benefits • Broad Application and Impact

    12. Commercialization • Provide Commercialization Technical Assistance during Phase I • Require Commercialization Plan in Phase II proposal • Offer two Options at Phase II: • Commercialization – Additional $70,000 for 3rd party investment • ETV – Additional $50,000 for participation in Environmental Technology Verification program

    13. Existing SBIR Projects – Remote Sensing • Remote Sensing Instrument for Particulates and NOx from Heavy Duty Diesel Vehicles (68D02046) • Robust Tunable Diode Lasers for Environmental Monitoring (EPD04063) • Active Gas Correlation Spectrometer (AGCS) Sensor for Gas Leak Detection (EPD02058) • Handheld Laser-Based Sensor for Remote Detection of Gas Leaks (68D00279) • A Non-Cryogenic Tunable Diode Laser Monitor for On-Road Vehicle Emissions (68D00270) • Miniaturized Electrochemical Sensor for Cr(VI) in Groundwater and Surface Water (68D02053)

    14. Existing SBIR Projects – Gasification • The Manufacture of Carbon Black From Oils Derived From Scrap Tires (68D99080) • New Phase I to be awarded early 2005

    15. Existing SBIR Projects – CAFOs • No current projects • Two new Phase I projects to be awarded early 2005

    16. Existing SBIR Projects – Arsenic MCL Compliance • Limestone-Based Material for Arsenic Removal From Drinking Water (68D03064) • Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water Using a Novel Hybrid Sorbent (68D03063) • Arsenic Removal System for Residential and Point-of-Use Applications (68D03062)

    17. Existing SBIR Projects – Sediment Reuse • No current projects on this topic • Several projects on remediation

    18. Existing SBIR Projects – Lead Paint Detection/Remediation • Paint Removal From Architectural Surfaces With an Innovative Pulsed Light Source (68D03046) • Improved Technology for Measuring Lead Detection in Lead-Based Paint (68D30069)

    19.
