  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X ray fluorescence ins ...

  2. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reduction in dependency of imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has lead to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, that promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such ...

  3. Highly Bright, Heavy Metal-Free, and Stable Doped Semiconductor Nanophosphors for Economical Solid State Lighting Alternatives

    SBC: NANOMATERIALS AND NANOFABRICATION LABORATORIES            Topic: N/A

    At present, the most economically efficient lighting technologies rely on discharge emission from mercury vapors. Mercury is also extremely toxic with the potential to accumulate in the human body over time. The alarming increase in mercury levels in our soils, sediments, and waters is driving the push to find economically viable alternative lighting sources that do not contain mercury. The obj ...

  7. Nanoadsorbent and Microwave Technology to Capture and Recover Organic Vapors

    SBC: ADS Technoogies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air polutants (HAPS are a serioud environmental issue. These pollutants are requlated to protect human health and encourage the development of better control technologies. Current technologies to control thses emissions, until better materials are developed, include destructive and/or recovery-based technologies. Implementation of ads ...

  8. Micro-discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can b detected and the focus of this Phase II project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, then move to field tests of sampling and analysis. Finall ...
