The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. High-Capacity Sorbent for Removal of Mercury from Flue Gas

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

    In December 2000, EPA announced its intent to regulate the emission of mercury from coal-fired power plants. ADA Technologies, Inc., is developing a family of new disposable sorbents for this application. The sorbents consist of a natural silicate doped with chemicals to capture and immobilize vapor-phase mercury and mercury compounds. Laboratory testing in Phase I has shown the new materials to h ...

  3. Low-Cost Mercury Sorbents Derived From Waste Tires

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research project, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., addresses two important environmental problems: (1) removal and recovery of mercury from combustion/incineration flue gas, and (2) reprocessing of waste tires into value-added products. Coal combustion and incineration of municipal and hazardous wastes results in air pollution due to emissions of trace amounts of heavy metals. Because of the ...

  5. Remote Sensing Instrument for Particulates and NOx From Heavy-Duty Diesel Vehicles

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

    To assess the effectiveness of new controls, new measurement techniques are needed to measure emissions from in-use diesel vehicles. The goal of this project is to develop a portable remote sensing instrument for particulate matter (PM) and gaseous pollutants. Aerodyne Research, Inc., already has developed a dual-wavelength tunable infrared laser absorption instrument for the crossroad remote sens ...

  6. MEMS Biosensor for In Situ Drinking Water Analysis

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of causative agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and other pathogens in water supplies presents a critical issue. Transmitted through water and animals, these organisms provide a reservoir of infection, which results in the excretion of the environmentally stable cysts or oocysts that are impervious to inactivation by many drinking water disinfectants. Cryptosporidium infections a ...

  7. Polymer-Based Competitive Flow Sensor Detects Contaminants in the Field

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II project addresses the development of technology that would provide field-based quantitative detection of a wide range of environmental contaminants through the use of molecularly imprinted polymers and fluorescence detection. The proposed method would complement immunological methods of analysis that have been adapted to contaminants such as herbicides and pesticides. The well-docume ...

  8. Sample Conditioning System for Real-Time Mercury Analysis

    SBC: Apogee Scientific, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Mercury from combustion sources is a major concern to the nation's air quality. In December 2000, EPA announced that it would regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired boilers under Title III of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. EPA plans to issue final regulations by December 2004, and is expected to require compliance by December 2007. The Department of Energy estimates that control of merc ...

  9. Instrument Development for Real-Time Measurement of Particulate Concentration and Primary Particle Size in Diesel Engine Exhaust Using a Novel Implementation of Laser-Induced Incandescence

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    In the 2002 Small Business Innovation Research Solicitation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency explicitly expressed interest in instruments that can accurately and reliably measure particulate emissions from vehicles. The availability of suitable instruments for measuring particulate emissions from engines and vehicles will benefit two broad categories of users: (1) it will directly help in ...

  10. Reducing Diesel Soot With an Atmospheric Plasma Metallic Filter

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Most buses, heavy-duty fleet vehicles, and construction and farm machinery are equipped with diesel engines. The diesel engine is an energy-efficient machine, but its exhaust emissions present a serious health and environmental problem. Drastic reductions in exhaust soot have been mandated throughout the world, including the recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandate to reduce smog- ...
