  3. Novel Lignin-Based Magnetite Nanocomposites for Removal of Phosphate from Contaminated Waters

    SBC: SYNANOMET, LLC            Topic: B

    Phosphorus (P) remediation is an extremely difficult and costly environmental problem and could cost $44.5 billion dollars for treatment using conventional water treatment plants to meet EPA requirements. Phosphorous runoff can lead to“dead zones” due to eutrophication and can also cause hypoxia, leading to death of aquatic life that thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. None commercial prod ...

  4. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosporidium parvum, a protozoan parasite that invades the gastrointestial system, is a serious threat to the nation's water supply. Assays for pathogen using self-contained microelectrochemical detection are desirable because precise detection can be performed with simple instrumentation on colored and turbid samples minimizing pre-treatment procedures. In addition, electrochemical detection ...
