  1. Power for Animal Wastes System Gasifier

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Animal wastes are a n environmental problem, particularly in fee lot areas were animals are concentrated. If the wastes could be upgraded to a fuel by gasification and then burned inefficient small-scale engines, high value electric power and process heat could be produced, while mitigating environmental problems. The proposed small-scale power generation concept uses innovative methods to pre-t ...

  2. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are over 480,000 trucks on the US roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs of CO and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year, while idling to produce auxiliary power needed for the driver¿s comfort. A Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Base APU (QRCFC-APU) is proposed to significantly reduce these emissions. QRCFC overcomes the challenges with the diesel fuel reforming and ...

  3. An Integrated Ventilation, Vapor Compression and Indirect Evaporative Cooling Systme

    SBC: Davis Energy Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses environmental problems associated with indoor air quality (IAQ) and energy consumption in residential buildings. As building envelopes become increasingly tight to satisfy energy efficiency requirements, health conditions that are correlated with indoor air quality - such as asthma and allergic diseases - are on the rise. The most effective strategy to improve IAQ is vent ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Integraion of Biological High Throughput Data with a Metabolic Model of a Liver Cell

    SBC: GENOMATICA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A large number of potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants in the environment make comprehensive experimental chemical testing cost prohibitive and unrealistic. Methods that can decrease the required experimental work and aid in the streamlining of this process would provide a valuable tool in this area. Computational cellular modeling can provide a significant improvement in linking exposur ...

  6. Field Analytical Method for Perchlorate

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Perchlorate is a widely-used component of solid fuel, missile and rocket propellants, explosives and pyrotechnics. It has been shown to reduce iodide uptake into the thyroid gland. The EPA has found Perchlorate contamination in 18 states and believes contamination may exist in as many as 39 states. In early January 2005, the National Academy of sciences, in an EPA-sponsored study, recommended a ...

  7. A Membrane Preconcentrator for Portable Trace VOC Detectors

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The sensitivity of low-cost, portable volatile organic compound (VOC) detectors currently is use is low, which limits their application in many situations. More sensitive detectors are more expensive and less robust and not suitable for field use. This proposal describes the development of a membrane-based preconcentrator able to concentrate trace amounts of VOC contaminants to levels that can b ...

  8. Ultrasensitive Acrolein Sensor for Environmental Monitoring

    SBC: PICARRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Picarro will build a trace gas sensor based on Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy (CRDS) targeting the acrolein absorption band in 1623 nm for environmental monitoring. Acrolein is a ubiquitous airborn pollutant the sources of which include burning vegetation (e.g., forest fires), waste incinerators, furnaces, fireplace, gasoline-and diesel-engine emissions, power plants, polyethelene combustion, cigar ...

  9. Rapid Immunochromatographic Strip Tests Detecting Lead-Based Paint

    SBC: SILVER LAKE RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Exposure to lead-based paint is the major source of potentially dangerous levels of lead in children and adults in the US. This project aims to develop rapid, on-site test kits for the detection of harmful levels of lead-based paint (LBP). The proposed test kits will be calibrated to current regulatory standards, will require no user training or instrumentation and will resemble a home pregnancy ...

  10. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 05NCERB2

    There are more than 480,000 trucks on U.S. roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs of CO, and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year while idling to produce auxiliary power needed for the driver’s comfort.  The overall goal of this project is a Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Base Auxiliary Power Unit (QRCFC-APU) to reduce significantly idling emissions. ...
