  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. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Absorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    Acrolein has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems.  There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment.  Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g., vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial ...

  3. Hazardous Waste Management Using a New Sparker Process

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: 05NCERC2

    The goal of this Phase I project is to develop a new “Sparker” process for treating organic hazardous contaminants in water and liquid waste, including persistent and bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals (PBTs), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).  Sparker technology also has potential for in situ treatment of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) and sludge ...

  4. Low-Cost, Mercury-Free Electrical Switches and Relays

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: 05NCERD3

    Mercury is a toxic, volatile metal that is used in electrical switches, relays, and motion detectors because of its electrical conductivity, low volatility, and fluid properties over a large temperature range. Mercury is released into the atmosphere during incineration of trash containing discarded electrical switches, relays, and motion detectors and rapidly migrates to the aquatic environme ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Novel Polymeric Building Decontamination Technologies

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 05NCERD6

    TIAX previously has evaluated the efficacy of polymeric materials in the removal of chemical and biological agents from surfaces. The system previously evaluated showed better than a two-log removal of simulants for both chemical and biological agents. TIAX is proposing under this Phase I SBIR project to broaden significantly the scope of the technology through application of proprietary syste ...

  7. Field Rugged, Portable H2O2 Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD6

    This Phase I SBIR project will support the development of a field-portable instrument for monitoring and controlling hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration during building decontamination after accidental or purposeful exposure to hazardous biological materials. The goal of Phases I through III is to develop a product that enables accurate real-time H2O2 measurements over the concentration range o ...

  8. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...
