  1. Integrated Cookstove-Heating-Electricity Generation for Small homes- Integrated cooking, heating, and electric power generation

    SBC: ASAT, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    _x000D_Currently available biomass heating/cooking stoves in Asia and in the USA do not efficiently cook food or heat houses while consuming too much fuel and emitting pollution, resulting in respiratory illnesses and premature death. ASAT specializes in the development and manufacturing of clean burning biomass stoves. In SBIR Phase I, ASAT developed a low emission, fuel efficient Integrated Heat ...

  2. Innovative Water Desalination System for Small Communities

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER4A

    In many parts of the country groundwater withdrawals exceed recharge rates and this has caused groundwater-level declines, reductions to the volume of groundwater in storage, lower streamflow and lake levels. Development of brackish groundwater and seawater as an alternative water sources can_x000D_ help address concerns about the future availability of water. Thus, there is a need for a technolog ...

  3. Determining Students' Academic Engagement while Completing Learning Activities and Assessments

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of D-TECH, a system to determine students' level of academic engagement while completing computer-based learning activities and assessments. The prototype will integrate within existing third party computer-based programs (e.g., online courseware, educational games, simulations, intelligent tutors) and will consist of a ...

  4. Biosensor for Field Monitoring of Pesticides in Water


    This Phase II research project will develop a field-portable, amperometric biosensor for monitoring organophosphorus (OP) and carbamate insecticides in water. The miniaturized biosensor will use a modified, screen-printed microelectrode with high sensitivity and low limit of detection for OP and carbamate pesticides. This biosensor will be selective for OPs and carbamates. The enzyme used to ge ...

  5. Improved Sorbent for Removing Mercury from Hazardous Waste Incinerators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Under this Phase II research project, TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) is developing a novel non-carbon sorbent to control mercury emissions from flue gases, hazardous waste incinerators, and coal-fired power plants. The sorbent easily could be injected into the flue gas and recovered in a particulate control device (PCD) along with the fly ash, minimizing capital investment. Unlike the carbon materi ...

  6. Singlet Delta Oxygen Airflow Sterilization for Building Protection


    Directed Energy Solutions (DES) proposes to design, fabricate, and test a basic prototype decontamination device for protecting buildings from chemical and biological weapons attack and the general enhancement of indoor air quality.  The decontamination device generates metastable singlet delta oxygen (SDO), O2 (a1Δ), a strong oxidant of biological and chemical pathogens, fr ...

  7. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor


    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago.  PCBs are toxic and suspected to be carcinogenic to humans and therefore are monitored carefully.  Because of the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of transformers containing these chemicals, ...

  8. Sorbents for Desulfurization of Gasoline Blends

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Conventionally, deep desulfurization in a refinery is accomplished by a multistep process including hydrodesulfurization (HDS) over CoMo/Al2O3 and NiMo/Al2O3 catalysts and subsequent removal of the H2S. The HDS process, however, is not suited well to produce ultraclean (essentially sulfur free) transportation fuels. At the severe reaction conditions required for deep desulfurization, the olefins a ...

  9. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 05NCERD2

    Finite supplies of increasingly dirty petroleum, climate changes as a result of carbon dioxide emissions, and communities choking in pollution caused by manufacturing as well as their own solid wastes are pressing environmental problems. Because of these problems, sustainability is becoming a leading issue in the plastics industries; disposal options increasingly are limited in major markets such ...

  10. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    MixZon, Inc., hypothesizes that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on an unmanned tethered helium balloon accessible via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. MixZon will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground-based network to monitor and control balloon-mounted, IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distri ...
