  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. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Biotech SE, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Landfills and waterways are inundated with tons of nondegradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified that can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics at the same price as other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the Phase I project will ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Polysaccharides Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Landfills and waterway are inundated with tons of non-degradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified which can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics while already meeting the price of other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the pro ...
