  1. Field Test Kits for Rapid Detection of Hazardous Contaminants on Indoor Surfaces

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fieldable, simple, cost-saving detection technologies for biological and chemical hazards are in great demand by security, emergency response and military forces. Experienced in developing toxin detection and environmental pollutant monitoring technologies, ADA Technologies, Inc. proposed to develop novel test kits for the rapid collection and identification of biological and chemical hazards on ...

  2. Synthetic Gasoline from Biomass

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Clean and renewable liquid fuels from biomass offer reduced new emission of CO2 and less dependence on expensive and unreliable foreign oil. Currently, bioethanol serves in the U.S.A. as bled for gasoline but eventually it could replace gasoline in passenger cars altogether. Ethanol, however, contains only 2/3 of the energy of gasoline on equal volume basis, and if used at high concentration, it ...

  3. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Polychlorinate biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago. Due to the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of transformers containing these chemicals, very specific regulations are in place which require quantification of PCBs in all transformer oil. The Toxic Substance Cont ...

  4. Removal of Sulfur From Gasified Coal AT or Above 800 C

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Coal contains substantial sulfur that if not captured when burned, can significantly impact human health, SO2 and SOx emissions are highly regulated. This Small Business Innovation Research proposal presents a novel, proprietary approach for removing sulfur from gasified coal products at gasification temperatures. The approach is based upon the use of sulfide ion conducting metal sulfides. At h ...

  5. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Petroleum is finite and as world economies develop it will be increasingly expensive. Consequently, crude oils containing contaminants including mercury and sulfur will be processed. The resulting extensive pollution along with concerns over climate change make it highly desirable to find alternative sources of plastics as a means of pollution prevention. Plastic water bottles in California are ...

  6. Hot Fuel-Gas Sorben System

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

    Technical Abstract: Coal is a major source of both electricity production and greenhouse gases (i.e., carbon dioxide, CO2). To minimize the effect on the environment, CO2 capture is required; but previous capture technologies have been both inefficient and expensive. Coal Gasification can produce a CO2 rich gas at high temperature and pressure. Removing the CO2 at high temperature and pressure ...

  7. Low-cost Biodiesel Production Process Using Meat Rendering Wastes, Recycled Greases and Unrefined Vegetable Oil Feedstocks

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

    Biodiesel is a fuel that is made from processing vegetable oil or animal fats into a liquid fuel that can be combusted in a standard diesel engine with no modifications. Boidiesel is made from renewable feedstocks, does not contribute to global warming and can be made from domestically agricultural products. However, the growth of the biodiesel industry has been slowed because the current proces ...

  8. Sorbents for Desulfurization of Gasoline Blends

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

    Conventionally, deep desulfurization in a refinery is accomplished by a multi-stage process including, hydrodesulfuriztion (HDS) over CoMo/Al2O3 and NiMo/ Al2O3 catalysts and subsequent removal of the H2S. However, the HDS process is not suited well to produce ultra clean (essentially sulfur free) transportation fuels. At the severe reaction conditions required for deep desulfurization, the olef ...

  9. Removal of Sulfur from Gasified Coal at or Above 800C

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 06NCERA2

    Coal contains substantial sulfur which, if not captured when burned, can significantly impact human health.  SO2 and SOx emissions are highly regulated.  This SBIR project presents a novel, proprietary approach for removing sulfur from gasified coal products at gasification temperatures.  The approach is based on the use of sulfide ion-conducting metal sulfides.  At ...
