  1. 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: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  2. The Development and Evaluation of an Enhanced Electrostatic Precipitator for Poultry Dust Removal

    SBC: Tisch Environmental, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERA1

    Particulate emissions are one of the main air quality concerns in poultry farms and other animal feeding operations (AFO) and especially are significant in poultry AFOs.  It can cause health damage to the AFO worker, become a nuisance to the neighborhoods, and result in violations of the Clean Air Act. This Phase I study focuses on an innovative particulate control technology ...

  3. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...

  4. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Polymer composites are used widely for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion.  Unlike metals, however, structural polymers are not conductive electrically; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP).  Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmen ...

  5. Meta-Structured Cermets for Chrome Replacement

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD3

    The objectives of this Phase I project are to demonstrate the production of potentially very low-cost nano/metastructured thermal spray powders using recycled scrap tools or very low-cost ceramic powders and to demonstrate superior materials properties of the metastructured coating when applied using thermal spray. The result would be a new class of very low-cost, nanostructured cement coatings th ...

  6. Field Analytical Model for Perchlorate

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    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 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (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 Science ...

  7. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Polymer composites are widely used for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion. However, unlike metals, structural polymers are not electrically conductive; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP). Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmental and economic chall ...

  8. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blends for Emission Reduction

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

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the EPA Clean Diesel Truck/Bus and low sulfur diesel rule and non-road diesel rule. Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover with extend full implementation. EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sources and also interested in new bio-diesel implementation tech ...
