  1. Zero-Emission Reconstituted Wood Panels for Building Interiors

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Organic resin-bonded reconstituted wood products, including oriented strandboard (OSB) and medium density fiberboard (MDF), are major sources of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released to the building interior, that are harmful to human health. The main thrust of this project is to significantly reduce the release of VOCs by replacing organic resins with inorganic polymer binders in reconst ...

  2. Growth and Fungal Resin Generation for Manufacturing Novel, Formaldehyde-Free Wood Particleboard

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: 16NCER6A

    Engineered wood represents a $8.SB market in the United States annually. Resins instituted in the production of traditional engineered wood products (formaldehyde) have recently come under substantial scrutiny due to detrimental human heath effects. Ecovative is developing a drop-in replacement for engineered wood resins that is economically competitive and intrinsically safe. The mResin TM system ...

  3. Low Temperature Ammonia Cracking Membrane Reactor for Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    There is growing interest in the use of ammonia as a clean alternative to fossil fuels. Ammonia belongs to a group of energy-dense liquid fuels that are much easier to store and transport than hydrogen. As ammonia decomposes to hydrogen through in a single reaction step and neither carbon oxide nor sulfur is involved in the product stream, ammonia is one of the most promising carbon neutral liquid ...

  4. Improved Rapid Detection of Viable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: 05NCERA2

    Innovative Biotechnologies International, Inc., has reported previously a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence-Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposome nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology.  This assay system is based on the ability to immunocapture low nu ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    We have previously reported a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposme nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology. This assay system is based upon the ability to immunocapture low numbers (i.e., five or more) oocysts and heat shock them to induc ...
