  1. Hand-Held Sensor for Remotely Mapping Carbon Dioxide Pollution Sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant under the federal Clean Air Act. The ruling allows the EPA to regulate CO2 emissions. Such regulation will entail monitoring a wide variety of pollution sources including automobile exhaust systems, industrial emission sources, and carbon sequestration sites. With presently available technologies, EPA personnel will ...

  2. Testing the Viability of Agricultural Byproducts as a Replacement for Mineral Particles In a Novel, Low embodied Energy, Construction Material

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: N/A

    GreensulateTM is an affordable, biodegradable replacement for polystyrene/polyurethane foam building products, poised to replace petrol-foams in the rigid board insulation market. This patent pending technology uses the vegetative growth stage of a benign fungus (mycelium: P.ostreatus, I.obliquus, F.formentarius A.arvensis) to bond loose particles into a cohesive whole. The fungus operates as a ...

  8. EXPERT COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION ACCESS NETWORK (ECIAN)

    SBC: ANALYSIS & SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VARIOUS ACTIVITIES (EDUCATION, GOVERNMENT, RESEARCH) GENERATE LARGE AMOUNTS OF RAW DATA. HOWEVER, DATA IS COLLECTED IN A DISJOINTED AND ISOLATED FASHION (I.E., ACTS, LITERATURE) CREATING BARRIERS IN DATA ACCESS AND DISSEMINATION. THERE IS A CONSENSUS AMONG FAMILIES AND PROFESSIONALS, THAT NEEDS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES AND SERVICES PROVIDED TO THESE INDIVIDUALS COULD BE GREATLY IMPROVED IF ...
