  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. A TEQ Based Dioxin Kit Utilizing Fluorescent Aptamers

    SBC: Eno River Labs, LLC            Topic: 05NCERC3

    Eno River Labs, LLC, (ERL) proposes to develop an onsite testing kit for dioxins that uses fluorescently tagged ssDNA aptamers for selective binding and subsequent screening and quantitative analysis of dioxin in soil sample.  Current dioxin field test kits are immunoassay based, which are insufficiently specific and sometimes unreliable.  Reliable dioxin testing requires la ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. FERROALLOY FROM CHROMIUM PLATING SLUDGE WASTE

    SBC: Climax Research Services            Topic: N/A

    SLUDGE WASTE CONTAINING CR(VI) FROM CHROMIUM PLATING OPERATIONS IS CLASSIFIED AS HAZARDOUS AND ITS DISPOSAL IS A MAJOR CONCERN. IT CAN BE RECOVERED FOR FUTURE METAL USE IN REMELTING OPERATIONS, CAN BE STORED, OR CAN BE DISPOSED AFTER MODIFICATION TO A LEGALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM. IN PHASE I, THE CONVERSION OF SLUDGE WASTE FROM CHROMIUM PLATING OPERATIONS INTO FERROCHROMIUM ALLOYS IS PROPOSED. BY MEANS ...

  9. CONVERSION OF WASTE STREAM PLASTICS INTO AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS

    SBC: Robert Morgan & Company Inc            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL RECYCLING OF WASTE PLASTICS IS LIMITED BY INEFFICIENT TECHNOLOGY AND NUMEROUS ECONOMIC BARRIERS. AS AN ALTERNATIVE, DIRECT PROCESSING OF RAW WASTE PLASTICS INTO FINISHED PRODUCTS HAS SHOWN PROMISE, BUT ITS FULL POTENTIAL REMAINS UNKNOWN. USING STATISTICALLY DESIGNED EXPERIMENTS, ROBERT MORGAN & COMPANY, INC. HAS SUCCESSFULLY PROCESSED BLENDS OF RAW WASTE PLASTICS INTO USEFUL COMPOSITE ...
