  1. Cost-effective, portable and automated platform for microplastics characterization

    SBC: Lucendi, Inc.            Topic: 20OSAPEP2

    Annually over 8 million tons of plastic flows into the ocean causing an estimated $13 Billion damage to marine ecosystems. Microplastic particles (MP) are those with diameters

  2. Early detection and prediction of harmful algal blooms using low cost, networked IOT sensors and machine learning

    SBC: AquaRealTime LLC            Topic: 20OSAPEP2

    Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are an increasing problem in waterways all over the world, costing an average of $17 billion in damages each each year. HABs have shut down water supplies to entire US cities in recent years. Blooms occur when nutrient-rich waters stimulate cyanobacterial growth, resulting in unsightly sludges that discolor waterways, rendering them dangerous to humans, liverstock and ...

  3. Development of a near-real-time analytical system for measurement of N-nitrosamines in water reuse.

    SBC: HYPERION ANALYTICAL LLC            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    Trace organic compounds are a major challenge for water reuse. N-nitrosamines and NDMA in particular are of concern because they occur in treated wastewaters at levels closest to those of potential human health concern. These are formed as a disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in treatment processes used in water recycling. NDMA limits and monitoring requirements are included in most permitting require ...

  4. Chemical Sensor-Modulated Transistors for Water Treatment Performance Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    The growing scarcity of potable water is increasing pressure on public health, the environment, and the economy, intensifying the clear and present need to advance water recycling and reclamation technologies. To that end, the EPA and has announced the National Water Reuse Action Plan (WRAP). Annual spending on water reuse is $1.8 billion, expected to increase by ~30% by 2027. As the water reuse m ...

  5. Laser-based In-situ Testing of Microbes with Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (LITMUS)

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    This proposal addresses the need for continuous microbial monitoring in water reuse treatment systems. The proposal will lead to a near-real-time, in-situ, reagentless sensor for potable and non-potable water systems. LITMUS (Laser-based Insitu Testing of Microbes with Ultraviolet Spectroscopy) uses deep UV laser excitation to directly detect microbes from the autofluorescence of protein-bound aro ...

  6. Open Path Analyzer for Accurate, ppt-level Quantification of EtO via Mid-Infrared Cavity Enhanced Spectrometry

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 20OSAPE2A

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to utilize open-path, mid-infrared cavity enhanced absorption spectrometry to develop a sensitive (< 10 ppt), fast (< 100 seconds), and highly-selective ethylene oxide (EtO) analyzer suitable for field-deployment. The US EPA has concluded that EtO, which is widely used in ethylene glycol production and medical ster ...

  7. Portable Analytical Instrument for Monitoring of Volatile Organic Compound in Complex Backgrounds

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, LLC            Topic: 20OSAPE2B

    The proposed device is a compact, portable, and robust battery-powered analytical instrument for monitoring of ultra-low concentrations of various VOCs in complex backgrounds. Our technology is based on principles of analytical gas chromatography (GC), utilizes scrubbed ambient air as carrier gas and a novel highly integrated multisensory platform as a detector. Due to the implementation of a mult ...

  8. Rapid freeze drying system

    SBC: Dunn Infinite Designs            Topic: 20OSAPE5A

    Over 30% of the food produced in the U.S. is wasted, including the embodied energy and fresh water used to produce it. Food waste accounts for 20% of landfill contents, leading to substantial and avoidable greenhouse gas emissions. Adoption of freeze drying by farmers, food processors and grocery retailers provides an economically viable path to address these challenges. Farmers will recover unmar ...

  9. Sequestering Arsenic From Effluents in Construction and Demolition Wood Recycling (SAFE C&amp;D Wood Recycling)

    SBC: SIMONPIETRI ENTERPRISES LLC            Topic: 20OSAPE5B

    This project will trial thermochemical techniques to recycle construction and demolition debris wood (C&D) into a low-greenhouse gas transportation fuel, while safely sequestering arsenic from C&D contaminants such as copper chromated arsenate (CCA) treated lumber. The amount of C&D wood waste going to landfill each year is not trivial. According to the EPA's latest Sustainable Materials Manageme ...

  10. Carbon Storing Straw Structural Insulated Panel (S-SIP) for Wide Scale Application

    SBC: VERDANT STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS            Topic: 20OSAPE5E

    The Need + Current Technologies: Right now, most walls and wall systems built in the US release carbon into the atmosphere for their production (embodied carbon). Considering that the current climate crisis is worsened by carbon, these wall systems must be designed to store and sequester carbon. Carbon-storing bio-based wall systems, such as straw bale construction, do exist on the residential ma ...
