  1. Phosphorus recovery and high efficiency biological nutrient removal from wastewater with an innovative aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactor process

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Phosphorus is a nutrient essential to all life, yet phosphate rock used for fertilizer is a finite resource which is rapidly being depleted. Yet, excess phosphorus from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is causing eutrophication and degradation water quality. There is a critical need for wastewater treatment technologies that will remove and recover more phosphorus for beneficial use in food pro ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. Highly Efficient Removal of Mercury from Industrial Flue Gas

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Coal-fired utilities emit 48 tons of elemental mercury into the atmosphere each year. Rising costs and escalating energy demands are expected to increase our reliance on energy produced by these facilities. However, with the Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR), mercury emissions from these utilities must ultimately be decreased to 15 tons for Phase II by 2018. To meet this mission cap, new technolo ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Low Cost Chemosensor for Measuring Phosphate in Water and Soil

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 06NCERB4

    The proposed Phase I SBIR project is expected to lead to the development of a low-cost portable instrument capable of making real-time measurements of phosphate in water and soil samples. The sensor system for this instrument will be based on the highly selective phosphate binding properties of a co-polymer to be synthesized in this research. In many areas, the rapid growth and intensification o ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Regenerable Biocidal Nanocomposite through a Green Process

    SBC: LIPS, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD2

    Biocidal polymers have begun to find applications in areas where traditional small biocidal molecules are unable to compete. For example, a biocidal polymer based on halamine chemistry has recently been introduced to disinfect water supply on aircrafts. Several major medical supply companies started marketing beddings, linens, and wipes treated with biocidal polymers to hospitals and nursing homes ...

  10. Regenerable Electrochemical Spiral Wound Decontamination Cell for Efficient Decontamination of Radionuclides in Water

    SBC: Isotron Corporation            Topic: 06NCERD5

    Water security has become a national priority following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This project specifically addresses the threat of radionuclide contamination, such as that resulting from a terrorist release of radioactive material into the water supply, but is expected to result in technology that is broadly applicable to other waterborne contaminants. More specifically, this ...
