  1. Non-Thermal Plasma Assisted Inactivation of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Wastewater

    SBC: AA Plasma LLC            Topic: 18NCER1A

    Factors such as an increase in global antibiotic availability, inadequate treatment of wastewater from pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, uncontrolled or over-the-counter antibiotic sales, and high antibiotic use in livestock feed have led to the rapidly-developing threat of antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB). This rise in infection incidence from pathogens resistant to our main medical def ...

  2. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been identified as a serious health contaminant in water at levels between 12 and 516 parts per trillion by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. In 2016, the EPA set a lifetime health advisory of 70 parts per trillion for two PFASs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). These compounds come from a variety of so ...

  3. Disposable Test Strips for Ultra-Sensitive Quantification of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Ground Water

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Human exposure to polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has been linked to cancer, elevated cholesterol, obesity, immune suppression and endocrine disruption. The EPA has set a PFOA health advisory of 70 parts-per-trillion. Due to widespread use of PFAS in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) to fight fuel fires, millions of gallons of PFASs have been used at oil refineries, military bases, civil aviation ...

  4. Rapid Field Trace Detection of Perfluoroalkyl Substance in Water

    SBC: 2W ITECH LLC            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Due to increasing concerns over long-term effects of PFOS and PFAS on human body, health based values were set by regulatory authoritative bodies for drinking water standard. Currenty lab-based PFOA and PFOS water tests cost $200-$300 per sample with a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks. In this program, 2W iTech LLC proposes to develop a low-cost fieldable sensing technology for detecting trace amounts ...

  5. Electrochemical Pretreatment of PFAS-Contaminated Aqueous Effluents

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    The widespread use of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl species (PFAS) chemicals for commercial products and industrial applications has resulted in bioaccumulation of these chemicals in the environment and a public health hazard. Development of novel approaches for in situ degradation of PFAS in industrial and landfill wastewaters would greatly facilitate efforts to prevent discharge of these hazard ...

  6. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-Organic Frameworks-Based Pretreatment Technology for the Remediation of PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    Per- and polyflouralkyl substances, otherwise known as PFAS, are a large group of chemicals including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). These chemicals have a large variety of uses globally. Remediation of PFAS has gained importance due to their environmental persistence and toxicity. Water treatment methods must combine multiple strategies to be effective, as PF ...

  7. Block Copolymer Membranes for Total Removal of Ionic and Nonionic PFAS from Industrial Wastewaters Optionally Co-Contaminated by Alcohols

    SBC: ANFIRO, INC.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    The EPA aims to reduce the total concentration of PFAS in industrial wastewater to

    SBIR Phase I 2019 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Development of Microwave-assisted Membrane Filtration for Pretreatment of PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

    SBC: Brisea International Development Inc            Topic: 18NCER1C

    EPA launched its drinking water guidelines for PFOA and PFOS in response to rising concerns of these chemicals toward water security. Many conventional wastewater treatment processes are ineffective at removing perfluorochemicals due to their strong resistance to hydrolysis, photolysis, and chemical or microbial degradation. This SBIR project will demonstrate an innovative microwave-assisted membr ...

  9. Electrochemical Mineralization of PFAS in lndustrial Wastewater

    SBC: OXBYEL TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    The EPA has established health advisory levels at 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for combined PFAS concentration. Water resources are susceptible to contamination by PFAS release from industry and landfill sites. Consequently, there is a need for on-site pretreatment technologies for PFASs in industrial wastewater. Electrochemical treatment has been shown to be effective for the mineralization of PFA ...

    SBIR Phase I 2019 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Development of “Smart” Polymer Nanofiber Mats for Selective and Efficient Removal of PFAS from Landfill Leachate

    SBC: Polykala Technologies, LLC            Topic: 18NCER1C

    In addressing Topic 1C in this solicitation, “Innovative pretreatment technologies for PFAS in industrial wastewater”, this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel nanofiber mats fabricated by electrospun polymer nanofibers for the “smart” (selective) removal of perand polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from landfill leachate. The co-contaminants, low ...
