  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. SILO SULFONATION REACTOR FOR WASTE PLASTIC AND RUBBER FOR INCLUSION IN HIGH PERFORMANCE

    SBC: Coalition Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    COALITION TECHNOLOGIES, LTD., (CTL) RESEARCH HAD IMPROVED A SIMPLE GAS PHASE TREATMENT (SULFONATION) OF WASTE RUBBER AND PLASTICS. RESULTS FROM LABORATORY SCALE EXPERIMENTS DONE AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY HAVE SHOWN THAT CONCRETE MADE FROM SULFONATED RUBBER AND PLASTIC PROVIDED BY CTL HAS IMPROVED IMPACT RESISTANCE AS MEASURED BY ASTM STANDARD TESTS. IN MANY CASES, WASTE PLASTICS AND RUBBER ARE ...

  7. 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. ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Wamax, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LEAD IN SOIL MUST BE TREATED IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE EXPOSURE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH LEAD MIGRATION AND LEAD BIOAVAILABILITY. SINCE THE LEVEL OF LEAD IN CONTAMINATED SOIL IS USUALLY VERY LOW, A COST-EFFECTIVE AND SAFE LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED. THIS RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE A NOVEL LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY BASED ON NATURAL SOIL CHEMICAL REACTIONS WITH ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE MATERIALS. PHASE I ...
