  1. MEMS Biosensor for In Situ Drinking Water Analysis

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of causative agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and other pathogens in water supplies presents a critical issue. Transmitted through water and animals, these organisms provide a reservoir of infection, which results in the excretion of the environmentally stable cysts or oocysts that are impervious to inactivation by many drinking water disinfectants. Cryptosporidium infections a ...

  3. REMOVAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM GASEOUS EFFLUENT STREAMS BY NOVEL PERFLUOROMEMBRANES

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EFFLUENT STREAMS ARE A SERIOUS AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM. CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR VOCS HAVE BEEN OXIDATION OR CARBON ABSORPTION BUT RECENTLY MEMRANES HAVE SHOWN EFFECTIVENESS. PRESENT MEMBRANE PROCESSES WORK BY PREFERENTIALLY PASSING VOCS (VERSUS AIR) THROUGH THE MEMBRANE AND THEN COMPRESSING AND CONDENSING OUT DOWNSTREAM VOCS. ADVANTAGES OF THIS MEMBRANE PROCESS INCLU ...

  4. MTBE Removal from Drinking Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The 1990 Federal Clean Air Act mandated the incorporation of oxygenates into gasoline in ozone and carbon monoxide nonattainment areas. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is the oxygenate of choice due to economic and supply considerations. Despite federal and state programs to improve handling of gasoline and other fuels in pipelines, underground and above-ground storage tanks, and other transpor ...

  5. Drift Mitigation by Optimization of Wingtip Modification

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II project will confirm the drift reduction potential of the wingtip-mounted device developed in Phase I, through fabrication, installation on an agricultural aircraft, and field testing of the optimized design. Off-target drift of pesticides and herbicides during aerial spray applications remains a major source of environmental concern, due to its potential human health impacts, d ...

  7. Subsurface In-Suite Volatile Organic Contaminant (VOC) Sampling Using Multiple Sorbent Traps With Rapid On-Site/Off-Site Quantitative Speciation

    SBC: DAKOTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dakota Technologies, Inc. (DTI), has demonstrated successfully key technologies used in the operation of a miniature gas chromatograph (GC) that fits inside a push rod for field screening and quantification of subsurface volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The GC is soft-pushed (no percussion) into the earth and uses a heated microporous inlet membrane on the side of the probe to transfer VOCs from ...

  8. SYSTEM OF CONTINUOUS EXTENSIVE MONITORING OF DRINKING, NATURAL AND INDUSTRIAL WATERS

    SBC: ECI TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Enhanced In Site Extraction of Heavy Metals Using Surfactant Foams

    SBC: Envirogen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I objective is to assess the use of surfactant colloidal gas aphron (CGA) foams for remediation of heavy metals in contaminated aquifers. One of the most important factors limiting pump-and-treat methods for metal as well as organic pollutant remediation is poor transport of extraction solutions from injection sites to zones of contamination because of movement through preferential flow ...

  10. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...
