  1. Commercialization of a Formadlehyde-Fee Soy-Based Wood Adhesive for Production of Plywood

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: N/A

    Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelf, kitchen cabinets, flooring, and other building materials, and are predominantly made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. New formaldehyde-free wood adhesives that mainly consist of abundant, renewable, and readily available soybean flour and novel curing agents have been developed in a laboratory and successfully ...

  2. Energy Efficient Ethanol Stillage Treatment using a Bio-Electrochemical System

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing energy and water intensity of fuel-ethanol production is a critical national need, particularly if we are to realize the renewable fuel standards of 2010 mandating 36 million gallons of renewable fuels by 2022. Because the ethanol tolerance of yeasts used in commercial cellulosic ethanol production is around 7-9% by volume, 10-14 gallons of stillage are created for every gallon of ethano ...

  3. Reduction of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Commercial Kitchens

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from commercial cooking establishments are a subject of increasing concern around the globe. Although increased awareness of the health hazards of respirable particulates and VOCs has prompted the development of new technologies to reduce emissions from restaurants, current technologies do not remove all hazardous air pollutants ...

  4. Advanced Contaminant Inactivation System for Drinking Water

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: E

    "The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small ...

  5. Development of a Scalable, Low-Cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop and ready for commercialization a scalable, low-cost process for purification of water containing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) using anodic oxidation with boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD®) thin films. Resent research demonstrated that there is considerable potential for the development of electrochemica ...

  6. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    "OPTRA proposes a Fourier transform phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (FT-PS-CRDS) system for high sensitivity detection of air toxic compounds. Our system operates in the 400-4000 cm-1 spectral range wherein lie vapor phase resonance bands for most air toxic compounds and hazardous chemicals; the spectral resolution is 4-16 cm-1, depending on the discrimination requirements. Our approac ...

  7. Development of a Fermentation Compatible Xylose Isomerase

    SBC: Trillium Fiber Fuels, Inc.            Topic: H

    "Cellulosic ethanol is a desirable transportation fuel for environmental and economic reasons. One of the issues limiting the commercialization is the utilization of xylose which is not fermented to ethanol by conventional brewing yeasts. Trillium Fiber Fuels is pioneering the use of xylos isomerase to convert xylose to fermentable xylulose. While this can be accomplished with existing industri ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: I

    "Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. This widespread nitrate contamination has led to significant environmental consequences. In particul ...

  10. Acrolein Monitor using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Absorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Acrolein (CH2 = CHCHO) is a toxic unsaturated aldehyde that has been classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g., vehicle exhaust, prescribed a ...
