  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. The Use of Sludge Generated by the Neutralization of Acid Mine Drainage in the Cement Industry

    SBC: RJ LEE GROUP, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB1

    The goal of this proposed study is to demonstrate the use of acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment sludge in the manufacture of Portland cement. Portland cement is composed of a mixture of calcium, silicon, aluminum, and iron oxides. When AMD is neutralized, sludge is precipitated that is composed largely of calcium, iron, and aluminum hydroxides. Disposal of this AMD treatment sludge ...

  3. Highly Efficient Removal of Mercury from Industrial Flue Gas

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD3

    This Phase I SBIR project focuses on a technology that potentially reduces volatile metal mercury (Hg) emissions by approximately 95 percent from coal-fired utilities. Frontier GeoSciences, Inc., has discovered a method of removing Hg by chemically modifying scrubber water with a proprietary polymer (Frontier GeoSciences’ toxic metal chelating agent; FGS-MCX). Scrubber water naturally remove ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  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 ...

  8. Highly Efficient Removal of Mercury from Industrial FlueGas

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal identifies a technology that potentially reduces volatile metal mercury emissions by ~95% from coal fired utilities. Frontier GeoSciences, Inc. has discovered a method of removing Hg by chemically modifying scrubber water with a proprietary polymer (FGS-MCX). Scrubber water naturally removes Hg species that are water soluble (e.g. MMHg and HgCl2), but this proposal focuses on Hg0. ...
