  1. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Polymer composites are widely used for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion. However, unlike metals, structural polymers are not electrically conductive; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP). Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmental and economic chall ...

  2. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and 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 o adverse health effects, especially in children. On-site and real-time detection and quantification of lead in the paint/dust is very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as x-ray fluorescence ...

  3. SAFE AND ECONOMICAL CHLORINE DIOXIDE GENERATION

    SBC: Eltech Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SAFE, COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO CHLORINE TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER FOR DISTRIBUTION AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR SOME TIME. CHLORINE DIOXIDE IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHLORINE FOR THE TREATMENT OF EVEN POOR QUALITY WATER SUPPLIES AND THE REDUCTION OF POTENTIAL CANCER CAUSING CHLORINATED ORGANICS. ITS WIDESPREAD USE HAS BEEN INHIBITED BY THE COSTS AND/OR COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCTIO ...

  4. DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES REQUIRING THAT MATERIAL BE HEATED AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY COOLED. IF MOST OF THIS HEAT IS RECOVERED AND RECYCLED TO THE OVEN, THE NET POWER INPUT TO THE OVEN COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. THE KEY TO ACCOMPLISHING THIS IS AN INCREASE OF THE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT BETWEEN GAS AND MATERIAL SO THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE RESASONABLY COMPACT. SIMPLE EXPERIMEN ...

  5. Isocyanate-Free Solvent-Free Hybrid Resin System

    SBC: DR. BEN CURATOLO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is designed to develop and optimize a prototype environmentally friendly isocyanate-free solvent-free UV curable hybrid resin system demonstrated in EPA SBIR Phase I research to have properties suitable for commercial industrial applications such as automobile refinishing, floor coatings, and aircraft coatings. Properties of the proprietary ...

  6. Environmentally Benign Production of Nanoscale Materials

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed sorbents will have potential applications in i) industrial wastewater treatment plants, ii) municipal wastewater treatment plants, iii) nuclear waste treatment plants, iv) drinking water treatment plants, v) several types of existing point-of-use and point-of-entry water purifying systems, and vi) for remediation of various mercury contaminated sites using permeable reactive barrier ( ...

  7. Real-time Reagentless and Arrayed Detector for the Monitoring of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occur in aquatic environments when conditions trigger an increase in the abundance of organisms that produce toxins. The toxins are transferred through the food web where they affect and even kill zooplankton, shellfish, fish, birds, marine mammals, and possibly humans. HABs have been estimated to cost the U.S. economy as much as $50 million per year due to the closure ...

  8. Meta-Structured Cements for Chrome Replacement

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR program¿s objectives are to demonstrate producing potentially very low cost nano/meta-structured thermal spray powders using recycled scrap tools or very low cost ceramic powders and to demonstrate superior materials properties of the meta-structured coating when applied using thermal spray. The result would be a new class of very low cost, nano structured cerment coatings th ...

  9. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  10. Etchant Recovery System

    SBC: Republic Anode Fabricators, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cupric chloride etchant is in wide use in the etching of copper, particularly in the manufacture of printed circuit boards. Currently, hazardous oxidants such as chlorine are used to regenerate this etchant. In addition, the hazardous waste generated must be hauled away and disposed of. The device under development will electrolytically regenerate the etchant without the addition of oxidizing c ...
