  1. A Low Cost, Long Life Zinc Oxide Based Sorbent

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Coal fired Gasifer Combined Cycles (GCC) have both high efficiency and very low emissions. A critical need for GCCs is a method of removing the H2S produced from the sulfur in the coal from the hot gases. There has been extensive research on hot gas clean-up systems, focused on the use of a zinc oxide based sorbent (e.g., zinc titanate). Unfortunately, current sorbents are relatively expensive, ...

    SBIR Phase II 1995 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: Clear Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The catastrophic drinking water treatment plant failure in March 1993 in Milwaukee was a direct result of the inability to control coagulant chemical dosage during significant changed in raw water quality. This event largely dispelled the myth that only small water utilities were vulnerable to such control problems. The current state of this critical technology, coagulant dose control, is woeful ...

  3. A Novel Extractant for the Selective Removal of Arsenic from Industrial Wastewaters

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The combustion of fossil fuels, particularly coal, introduces large quantities of arsenic into the environment, much of which reaches natural waters. Acute arsenic poisoning results from ingestion of only 100 mg of the element, while chronic poisoning occurs with the continued ingestion of smaller amounts. Processes developed for arsenic removal from drinking water are appropriate for small volu ...

  4. A Green Rooftop System for Commercial Buildings with Superior Energy Efficiency

    SBC: XIMAX Technologies Corporation Ltd            Topic: 18NCERP2

    This proposed Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to develop, prototype and commercialize a Green Rooftop Technology with superior building energy efficiency to significantly reduce energy consumption of our nation’s industrial and commercial buildings. Besides, this proposed technology can significantly extend the lifespan of current building rooftop materials to ...

  5. An Alternative Concrete Chemistry with Significantly Enhanced Durability, Sustainability, Economy, Safety and Strength

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 14NCER5A

    Portland cement concrete is the most widely used construction material, and is a prevalent component of construction and demolition (C&D) waste. The large carbon footprint and energy content of Portland cement concrete; the constraints on its strength, durability and capability to encapsulate toxic elements; and the low value of C&D waste concrete have created a growing demand for alternative ceme ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Coal is the largest source of power generation in the U.S.A. but its conbustionproduces SOx and NOx which must be removed from the flue gas. Current removaltechniques (limestone base Flue Gas Desulfurization and Selective CatalyticReduction) are effective but expensive due to the large amouth of sorbentconsumed. The leading regenerable process is the NOXSO process, which wses asodium aluminate s ...

    SBIR Phase I 1995 Environmental Protection Agency

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nitrogen oxides (NO and NOx, collectively referred to as NOx) are among the mostpervasive and difficult emissions to control. NOx emissions can be reducedsomewhat by combustion modification techniques, but these reduce operatingefficiency and will not reduce levels to meet requirements of currentlegislation. Post combustion control is also difficult. Currently, there areno commercial catalytic ...

  8. Chronological Sweat Sensor Patch for Real-Time Human Molecular Biomarker Monitoring

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA18003

    Sweat contains biomarkers that give an indication of human cognitive levels. In this SBIR project TDA Research is developing a modular sweat sensor patch that has the capability to not only carry out real-time monitoring of select biomarkers, but also to collect multiple precisely time stamped chronological samples (50-150 Ls each) for off-line analysis in laboratory assays.In Phase I, we demonstr ...

    SBIR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Health Program

    SBC: Climax Research Services            Topic: N/A

    Chromium plating sludge waste from hard and decorative chromium platingoperations is classified as a hazardous waste and its disposal is a majorenvironmental concern. Climax Research Services (CRS) will develop techniquesto recycle the chromium metal values in the sludge back into the domesticmetallurgical industry as purified aluminothermic chromium metal. This proposaladdresses initially the h ...

  10. Cost-effective Molecularly Imprinted Polymer Based Monitoring Technologies to Improve the Performance and Reliability of Small Drinking Water Systems


    Small drinking water systems consistently provide safe, reliable drinking water to their customers. However, challenges of such systems include lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, cost of scale, and technical/logistical challenges associated with regulation compliance. The deployment of new cost-effective monitoring technologies, such as improved, low cost, in-line, in situ, and rem ...
