  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. 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 ...

  3. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: 05NCERD5

    Vegetated roofs (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past 5 years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building rating system offering multiple ...

  4. A Compact, Low-Cost, Near-UV Sensor for Chlorine Dioxide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD6

    Southwest Sciences proposes the development of an optical, near-ultraviolet chlorine dioxide (ClO2) sensor having a measurement range of about 0.01 to 2000 ppm with a response time of less than 10 seconds. The sensor will be compact—about the size of a 1-quart milk carton including electronic and optics, operate at low power, and be outfitted with a wireless communications interface to permi ...

  5. POE/POU Akaganeite Treatment Systems for the Removal of Arsenic from Drinking Water

    SBC: LaSys, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD7

    Using the unique spectral characteristics of its proprietary fractal-microcavity composite, LaSys, Inc., will perform the proof-of-concept research required to develop an ultra-sensitive optical detector of low concentration of arsenic in water based on the Raman effect. The Phase I technical objectives are designed to demonstrate that fractal microcavity composite-surface-enhanced ...

  6. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    MixZon, Inc., hypothesizes that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on an unmanned tethered helium balloon accessible via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. MixZon will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground-based network to monitor and control balloon-mounted, IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distri ...
