  2. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    The drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan reminds us that lead remains dangerous and insidious toxicant that can impact public health for months or years before it is detected and remedied.Increasing awareness of lead contamination has motivated the general public to test their own drinking water, but few tools are availiable to help these "citizen scientist" do so effectively.Current lead scre ...

  3. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    As recent crises in Flint, Michigan and Washington D.C. have demonstrated, elevated lead levels (ELL’s) can very suddenly and unexpectedly be introduced to water supplies through seemingly unrelated water system alterations. Ingestion of even trace amounts of lead can have detrimental permanent health effects, especially in children; the public is rightly concerned about lead content in the wate ...

  4. Ultra-Thin, Magnetic Polymer Membranes for the Selective Removal of Macronutrients in Wastewater

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Phosphorous and nitrogen are valuable nutrients found in wastewater. The flow of phosphorous from rocks to the natural waterway has increased in recent years, due in large part to agricultural production. In addition to being a nutrient, phosphorous is a contaminant in aquatic environments that leads to the formation of organic material and algae. Recovery of phosphorous from wastewater will ensur ...

  5. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...
