  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. New Process for Perchlorate Reduction in Drinking Water Treatment Units

    SBC: PROFESSIONAL ANALYTICAL AND CONSULTING SERVICES INC            Topic: 05NCERA2

    Perchlorate contamination of groundwater and drinking water supplies is emerging as a major problem because it causes irreversible brain damage and other health effects, especially in the fetus and young children.  Present perchlorate treatment is expensive and creates a secondary brine, with high levels of nitrate and perchlorate for its users to manage.  This Phase I SBIR p ...

  3. Advanced Slagging Gasifier for Biomass Wastes

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: 05NCERC5

    Gasification provides a potential means of deriving clean energy from biomass waste materials.  One of the greatest obstacles to the effective gasification of animal and farm waste is the slagging behavior of the residual ash at temperatures that yield the most efficient gasification performance.  Many wastes particularly are problematic for dry ash gasification processes, es ...

  4. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-A by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms potentially have many adverse environmental impacts.  For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive.  Blue-green algae form blooms that make a surface scum and have been associated with low levels of dissolved oxygen t ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green algae, form blooms that make a surface scum and have been associated with low levels of dissolved oxygen that can be lethal ...

    Gasification provides a potential means of deriving clean energy from biomass waste materials. One of the greatest obstacles to the effective gasification of animal and farm waste is the slagging behavior of the residual ash at temperatures that yield the most efficient gasification performance. Many wastes are particularly problematic for dry ash gasification processes, especially waste from co ...
