  1. Nanoporous Metal Organic Framework Filters for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: TopicC

    The objective of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of using some newly discovered materials, water-stable metal-organic frameworks (MOF), as filters for pollutants common in indoor air. By way of background, recent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-supported work from Professor Masel’s laboratory has shown that a new class of water-stable MOFs shows unprecedented adsorp ...

  2. Efficient Distributed Energy Generation System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicA

    Distributed energy offers a means of providing reliable, cost-effective electrical power to residents of rural communities. These requirements often cannot be met by current distribution methods due to limitation of remote central station power generation and transmission. With the migration of population from urban areas to rural areas and the increased power demands placed on electrical grids fr ...

  3. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Triglycerides to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    There is a finite amount of fossil fuels, which will only last a few more decades. Therefore, it is imperative to develop renewable sources of energy. An area that has recently attracted a lot of attention is the conversion of renewable oils to biodiesel, primarily through the methanolysis of triglycerides. The use of an immobilized lipase as a heterogeneous biocatalyst to transform oils into biod ...

  4. Photonic Crystal Slot Waveguide Spectrometer for Monitoring of Volatile Organic Compounds in Groundwater and Hazardous Pollutants in Air

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this program, Omega Optics, Inc. and the University of Texas, Austin, propose a novel lab-on-chip photonic crystal slot waveguide infrared spectrometer for detection and spectroscopic analysis of BTEX hydrocarbons (benzene and toluene) in water and greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide) in air. The device utilizes the unique dispersive properties of slow light photonic crystal waveguides together with ...

  5. Premature Cure Indication for QwikSeal® Pre-Sealed Fastener Technology; Topic #DLA08-01

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: DLA08001

    Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) has developed a proprietary process called QwikSeal for pre-coating fasteners with cure-blocked sealant, then overcoating the pre-applied sealant with a moisture-impermeable size coat. QwikSeal is designed to replace the current “wet installation” process where sealant is mixed and applied to each fastener at the point of installation, and whic ...

  7. Pigmented Solvent-Free Corrosion-Resistant UV Coating System

    SBC: DR. BEN CURATOLO, INC.            Topic: TopicB

    This SBIR Phase I project is designed to determine the feasibility of preparing novel coatings for corrosion resistance through the incorporation of pigment and non-chrome corrosion inhibitor into a solvent-free ultraviolet (UV) light curable matrix. In particular, the proposed research is directed toward determining the feasibility of preparing a safe, novel chromium-free, solvent-free, corrosion ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
