  1. Recycling of Greenhouse Gases to Fuels & Chemicals

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: D

    "Technologies that prevent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission from natural and man-made sources are needed to address the environmental and human health implications of climate change. One approach is to capture the GHG emissions and secure them in long term storage, i.e., carbon sequestration. However, current carbon sequestration technologies may: A) produce undesirable by products; B) contamina ...

  5. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    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 fluorescence inst ...

  6. Energy Storage Systems for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: SB072041

    One of the major challenges of developing aircraft is the development of an appropriate energy system. The energy system ideally has a large amount of energy with a very low weight. This equates to a high specific energy (Wh/kg). Lithium-air batteries offer the greatest theoretical specific energy for batteries at 13 kWh/kg. Yardney has extensive experience in requirements for battery power and me ...

  8. Assignment Game for Distributed Logistics

    SBC: VCRSOFT LLC            Topic: SB062012

    Distributed logistics problems cannot be solved using traditional centralized optimization techniques because of the autonomous nature of the entities involved. We propose to design and demonstrate a decentralized automated negotiation based approach. This game theoretic approach is implemented as a generic agent toolkit that can be customized by the domain-expert.

  9. Graded Interference Filter Spectrometer

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERA3

    The release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial processes can have negative impacts on the environment while also posing significant health and safety concerns. In the environment, many of these chemicals are considered precursors to ground-level ozone, which is the primary component of smog. In addition, many VOCs are cancer-causing in humans while others pose dangerous explosi ...

  10. A Biomass Energy Process for Poultry Growing Operations

    SBC: Neathery Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERB4

    The U.S. poultry industry produces more than 45 billion pounds of poultry annually. A majority of this production is from concentrated animal feeding operations. In a modern poultry growing facility, small chicks are raised in several large “houses” that typically cover over 20,000 ft2. Starting with each grow-out period, fresh wood mulch bedding material is spread over the house fl ...
