Klaw Industries’ Pantheon binder has just under 72 percent minimum silicon dioxide and just over 10 percent maximum calcium oxide content.

Klaw Industries LLC, Binghamton, N.Y. developer of a process for converting waste glass to Pantheon-branded concrete mix constituent, is among eight companies receiving up to $400,000 in Environmental Protection Agency Small Business Innovation Research Phase II grants, following $100,000 first phase awards. 

“Addressing our most pressing environmental problems requires innovation and creative thinking from all sectors,” says EPA Office of Research and Development Assistant Administrator Chris Frey. “I am excited to see how these small businesses leverage this investment from EPA to bring their promising technologies to the marketplace.” The agency issues annual SBIR technology proposal solicitations for specific high priority environmental topics, he adds, with submissions evaluated on technical merit, commercialization potential, and impact in a given topic area.
