DOE SELECTS 66 PROJECTS FOR SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION RESEARCH GRANTS

 DOE SELECTS 66 PROJECTS
 FOR SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATION RESEARCH GRANTS
 OAKLAND, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Secretary of Energy James D. Watkins announced today that the Department of Energy (DOE) has selected 66 projects, including 15 in California, for fiscal year 1992 funding under Phase II of its Small Business Innovations Research (SBIR) Program. The awards will average about $490,000 each for a two-year period.
 Admiral Watkins said, "Examples of leading-edge, innovative technology to be funded include high performance computing research, human genome mapping, and bioconversion of coal gas to fuel additives." Watkins announced the awards at the National Technology Initiative conference being held in Gaithersburg, Md. He cited the SBIR program as yet another way the federal government can help make U.S. industry more competitive.
 The projects selected cover a broad spectrum of energy-related reserach and development in conservation and renewable, fossil, and nuclear energy, as well as basic energy sciences, health and environmental research, magnetic fusion energy, and high energy and nuclear physics.
 The SBIR program, now in its tenth year, implements the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982. Its objective is to strengthen the role of small, innovative firms in areas of research and development that are federally funded. This research and development, in turn, will serve as a base for technological innovation while at the same time meeting agency needs.
 In 1991, under Phase I of the department's SBIR program, 172 projects were funded (out of 1,201 grant applications submitted) at about $50,000 each for preliminary feasibility studies. These firms were eligible to submit applications to continue their work in 1992 under Phase II, which is the principal research and development phase. Of those firms which applied by an early deadline, the department selected 21 to fund to avoid interruption in project work. Negotiations with the small, high technology firms will begin immediately on the remaining 45 projects selected.
 A list of the 15 applications in California recommended for FY 1992 Phase II awards follows.
