  1. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Absorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    Acrolein has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems.  There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment.  Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g., vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial ...

  2. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...

  3. An Inexpensive Hand-Held Monitor for Measuring Fugitive Methane Emissions

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 16NCER1B

    Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted after carbon dioxide, however, on a pound-to-pound comparison methane has a 25 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Accordingly, the 2014 Climate Action Plan signed by President Obama has directed agencies including the USDA, DOE, and EPA to reduce methane emissions. A significant effort in th ...

  4. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Vegetated roof (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past five years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the LEED green building rating system offering multiple credits for them. However, discussion ...

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

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We hypothesize that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on a unmanned tethered helium balloon and accessed via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. We 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 distribution of surfa ...

  8. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Encapsulation of Biological Contaminants in Transportation Systems

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 15NCER07

    TIAX has developed a technology to meet EPA and homeland security needs for bio-agent decontamination in railway cars and other situations. It provides simultaneous encapsulation and killing of biological contaminants with the added capability for decontamination of chemical and radiological hazards. Current technologies are labor-intensive involving separate steps for site preparation, decontamin ...
