  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. A Novel Treatment Method of Drinking Water

    SBC: Ion Physics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed electric field (PEF) disinfection is becoming well known as a possible means for the control of microorganisms in fluids. Although this technique has been shown to be effective against a wide variety of microorganisms, its widespread application is impeded by the high specific energy input (kWh/L) required. Conversely, the proposed enhanced PEF process promises a significant reduction in th ...

  10. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...
