  2. Singlet Delta Oxygen Airflow Sterilization for Building Protection


    Direct Energy Solutons proposes to deliver a prototype air flow decontaminaton device design for building protection from chemical and bilogical attacks. The decontamination device generates singlet delta oxygen (SDO) on a photocatalyst bed for the destruction of contaminants entrained in an airflow. This HVAC-compatible, minimum pressure drop chem-bio decontaminaton system will: Use a proven n ...

  3. Biosensor for Field Monitoring of Pesticides in Water


    This SBIR proposal describes development of a protable, low-power amperometric biosensor to detect ogranophosphorus and carbamate insecticides in water. A renewable, robust biosensor is proposed and will be designed to specifically detect insecticides based on an immobilized enzyme of a sensor electrode. This method will allow analysis of insecticides in water without significant dilluton or red ...

  6. Water Security Sensor for Automatic Masurement of Micrograms of Heavy Metals in Dinking and Waste Water

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is growing concern regarding the susceptibility of the US water system to terrorist attack. This concern stems both from recent attacks against targent in the US, and from the inherent characteristics of the US water supply systems, which are spatially diverse, subjet to intrusion and contain many components. An important aspect of risk mitigation is implementation of smart early-warning s ...

  7. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) Within an E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Electoronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differental dens ...

  8. Triggered-Release Biocidal Nanocomposte Coatings

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

    Biocidal additives are vital for both the preservation of coatings in the can as well as for long-term coating integrity after applications. Anti-fungal additives are critical for delaying attack by fungal and algal growth once an architectural coating is in place. Biocidal coatings are designed to kill microbes and fungi by slowly and steadily releasing biocide from the dried film. Unfortunat ...

  9. Improved Sorbent for Removing Mercury from Hazardous Waste Incinerators

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

    The proposed research effort will develp a new, lower-cost and more environmentally benign sorbent system to remove mercury from the flue gases produced by waste combustion incinerators. Current removal systems use dry sorbent injection of activated carbon, which is collected in the fabric filter for disposal. These systerms have low capital costs because they use existing capital equipment to c ...

  10. Chromate-Free Nanoparticle Corrosion Inhibitors for Steel

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

    The corrosion of steel has widespread economic and environmental effects, and the annual cost of corrosion exceeds $275 billion. About 49% of U.S. steel production goes to replace corrodded matal parts and consumer goods. Corrosion also has a significant impact on the environment. Structures such as storage tanks, pipelines, ships, railcars, and tanker trucks, which store and/or transport hazar ...
