  1. Capacitive removal of PFOA and PFOS from Drinking Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) have been used commercially since the 1940’s due to their high level of chemical stability, almost frictionless surface or waterproofing characteristics. Elevated levels of PFCs have been linked to cancer and other health problems including reproductive and developmental risks. PFOA and PFOS are amongst the most prevalent of the PFCs with low l ...

  3. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Commonly used water treatment approaches to mitigate phosphorus pollution and its consequences in small watersheds include the use of chemicals to precipitate phosphorus or algaecides to terminate algal growth. Both approaches require the addition of chemicals to the waterbodies resulting in biomass/sludge build-up, solid precipitates and/or potential toxicity from added metal salts. There is a hi ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Evaluation of the 100% Recyclability of Superpave Hot Mix Asphalt

    SBC: HIP Paving, LLC            Topic: A

    "At 2.7 million miles of paved roads, the United States has the largest network of roads in the world. The mainstream approach to pavement rehabilitation has been to mill the deteriorated asphalt and replace with new asphalt mix. The hot in-place pavement recycling process has the potential of replacing the milling and resurfacing process with substantial financial and environmental savings. Ho ...
