  1. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  4. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD1

    Reduction in dependency on imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has led to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, which promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such a ...
