  1. A Sensitive and Affordable Compact Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ammonia has an important role in the chemistry of the atmospheric environment and air quality. Ammonia emissions are a major environmental concern, yet they remain poorly quantified. There is a need for a sensitive ammonia instrument to monitor emissions and evaluate their effects on the local and regional environments. An instrument capable of continuous monitoring is required to understand diurn ...

  2. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared (IR) imaging is the best method for detecting leaks of pollutant gases, but current technology based on cooled IR imagers is far too expensive ($75,000 to $150,000) for everyday field use by those who need it to meet regulatory limits¿electric and petrochemical utilities, manufacturing plants, and businesses such as supermarkets. Agiltron will demonstrate a new class of IR imager instrum ...

  3. Sensitive, Quantitative, and Portable Anatoxin Assay using Aptamers and Quantum Dot Nanoshell Reporting

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project directly addresses an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for improved detection and measurement techniques including screening kits for algal neurotoxins (especially cyanobacterial anatoxin) and cytotoxins in drinking water systems. Bloom-forming cyanobacteria have been observed in water bodies, including drinking water reservoirs all over the world. Several ...

  6. Outdoor Biomass Gasifier Hydronic Heater (OBGHH)

    SBC: Chip Energy            Topic: N/A

    America needs a clean, affordable, reliable and sustainable product or system to obtain heat for residences in cold climates using renewable, carbon-neutral, plentiful, low-cost biomass fuels of diverse types found close to the location of usage. The available biomass could heat hundreds of thousands of homes, and costly natural gas could be directed to higher-value usage. Gasifiers are devices t ...

  7. Security Monitoring Using Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Clean drinking water is a critical component of the United States infrastructure and is therefore a potential target for terrorists. In addition to physical attacks to the water network including dams, pumping stations and pipelines, there must be vigilance to prevent the water itself from being fouled through the addition of toxic/hazardous chemicals. It is virtually impossible to protect every r ...

  8. Decontamination Wipes for First Responders

    SBC: Entropic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of chemical or biological (CB) attack is real, and there is a recognized need for improved technologies to better respond to these situations. During a CB emergency, first responder units are critical for handling the emergency, and then restoring the environment where it occurred. After a threat has been contained, the first responders, donned in protective gear, must decontaminate the ...

  9. CATALYTIC BRIDGE CHEMICAL MONITOR

    SBC: Envirochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A CONCEPT FOR A CHEMICAL MONITOR BASED ON DIFFERENTIAL CATALYTIC REACTIVITIES AND LARGE REACTION EXOTHERMICITIES. THE SIMPLICITY OF THE PROPOSED SENSOR CONCEPT PROMISES AN ECONOMIC AND RELIABLE MONITOR FOR IN-SITU MEASUREMENT OF A VARIETY OF GASES. IN THIS PROJECT, ENVIROCHEM, INC., WILL INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF THIS CONCEPT FOR MEASURING AMMONIA IN FLUE GASES. A SENSI ...

  10. UTILIZATION OF SCRAP PREPREG WASTES AS A REINFORCEMENT IN A WHOLLY RECYCLED PLASTIC

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOSTER-MILLER PROPOSES TO UTILIZE SCRAP PREPREG WASTE AS A REINFORCEMENT IN RECYCLED POLYETHYLENE. BY REINFORCING RECYCLED PLASTICS SUCH AS POLYETHYLENE WITH SCRAP PREPREG AND SUITABLE BINDERS, AN ECONOMICAL USEFUL PRODUCT CAN BE OBTAINED. AT THE SAME TIME, THIS INNOVATION WILL ALSO HELP TO REDUCE 2.5 MILLION POUND/YR OF HAZARDOUS WASTE -- UNCURED PREPREG SCRAP. FOSTER-MILLER IS WORKING WITH A COM ...
