  1. Formulation and testing of an entirely wood-based exterior insulation board for the high-performance building market

    SBC: GO Lab Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6B

    The goal of this project is the formulation a rigid, insulating, low-density wood composite, with physical and thermal properties comparable to fossil fuel derived foams. _x000D_ _x000D_ To achieve energy conservation standards mandated by certification agencies such as Passive House and LEED, high performance buildings require multiple shells of insulation – an inner shell that contains electri ...

  2. Indoor Formaldehyde Detection by a Low-Cost Chemical Sensor Based on Organic Nanofibers

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Need: People are exposed to formaldehyde, a carcinogen found in building materials. Highly sensitive, real-time formaldehyde sensors would improve human safety by alerting users to harmful concentrations. _x000D_ _x000D_ Technical Feasibility: Vaporsens produces chemical sensors based on novel organic nanofiber technology. Phase 1 results demonstrated high selectivity, rapid-response time, and dem ...

  3. Densely Connected Neural Networks for Remote Sensing

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: NGA181010

    The objective of this project is to design a software architecture based on densely-connected neural network to perform automatic targetsegmentation and recognition using training datasets of limited size (low-shot). Deep learning architectures have proved to be extremelyeffective at object detection and recognition, but such capability comes at the cost of having large labeled datasets. Such data ...

  4. Novel Field Deployable Electrochemical Sensor for the Detection and Long-Term Monitoring of Pollutants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants of groundwater in the country. When released in the subsurface, they tend to persist below the water table, and it can take decades or centuries before slow-moving groundwater completely dissolves accumulations of chlorinated solvent product. Analytical methods currently available for monitoring these compounds require extensive ...

  5. Low Cost Heavy Metals Removal from Hazardous Wastewaters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Heavy metal species mobilized and released into the environment by technological activities tend to persist indefinitely, circulating and eventually accumulating throughout the food chain, posing a serious threat to the environment, animals, and humans. Typical industrial metal-containing discharges can be considered as point-source emissions, which in turn offer the possibility of feasible remed ...

  6. Phytoremediation of TNT-Contaminated Soils Using Plants Selected by a Four-Step Screening Procedure

    SBC: Phytokinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project involves the development of a phytoremediation technology for the cleanup of TNT-contaminated soils at the Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant (VAAP) in Chattanooga, TN (an upland site). Phytoremediation, the use of plants to clean up contaminated environments, has a great potential for soils contaminated with TNT. Recent discoveries suggest that intrinsic plant enzymes (not micr ...

  7. Energy Neutral VOC Oxidation Using a Fluorite-Catalyst/Compact Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N/A

    The need to reduce ozone in urban areas has led to increased regulation for the control of the ozone precursors¿namely volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides. However, current control technologies, such as incineration and adsorption on solids, have a number of disadvantages for the wide range of VOC-emitting industries. Catalysts provide an alternative control strategy. Recent ...

  8. CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER.

    SBC: Photox International            Topic: N/A

    CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER. CURRENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES FOR CONTROLLING SUCH CONTAMINATION ARE LIMITED TO AERATION, ADSORPTION, AND LINKING. A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE IS PHOTOCHEMICAL OXIDATION, BUT THIS PROCESS IS AS YET UNOPTIMIZED, POORLY UNDERSTOOD, AND LARGELY LIMITED. PHOT ...
