  1. Replacements for PVC and PE Water Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: 17NCER1C

    METSS proposes to design a novel polymer system based on polypropylene with covalently attached antioxidants to mitigate issues with chemical permeation and water quality with current waterpipe materials. Polypropylene was selected as it has inherently good physical properties and low permeability that will limit chemical migration from the outside, addressing one critical factor impacting water q ...

  4. Lab-on-a-chip sensors for organic pollutants in homes

    SBC: Prometheus SenTech LLC            Topic: 15NCER01

    Exposure to hazardous organic compounds (OCs) in the indoor environment can cause serious health issues. There are no commercially available devices for inexpensive autonomous continuous monitoring of OCs that generates actionable data (identification and quantification of the compound) that can be used for reducing the health risks associated with OC exposure. The proposed sensor technology has ...

  5. Electrochemical Nutrient Extraction from Digestate

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 15NCER05

    The proposed technology addresses the need for mitigation of the impacts of animal agriculture on the environment via recovery of phosphorus and nitrogen. Concentrated animal feeding operations create significant amounts of waste in the form of manure digestate; disposal at a cost of $1.6B. Microbial electrolysis cells have been explored as a chemical free, energy efficient method of extracting nu ...

  6. 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 ...

  10. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use of inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional p ...
