  2. Mycological Biopolymer as a Replacement for Expanded Plastic Foams

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: B

    Plastics and petroleum-based foams are a conventional solution for the material needs of many industries. Today these non-biodegradable, fossil fuel derived products compose 13 percent of all municipal solid waste streams, as opposed to 1 percent in 1960. This waste stream is associated with a number of environmental concerns, including greenhouse gas generation from incineration, as well as land ...

  3. Inexpensive High Performance Continuous Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: D

    Environmental studies have proven that ammonia (NH3) presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, accurate monitoring and control of NH3 concentration is required inorder to maintain appropriate air quality levels. Atmospheric ammonia contributes directly and indirectly to acidification, eutrophication, human health and climate change. For air pollution monitoring, the ammonia concentr ...

  4. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  5. High-Power Vertical-Junction Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Low-Dislocation-Density GaN by Epitaxial Lift-Off [Phase IIS]

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: 1

    In this program, we will develop a breakthrough technology that will enable wafer-scale epitaxial lift-off (ELO) of GaN power device heterostructures from low-dislocation-density bulk GaN substrates. This technology will be used to provide a low-cost vertical junction field effect transistors (VJFETs) with high breakdown voltage (greater than 1,200 V) and high current capability (greater than 100 ...

  6. Colorimetric Monitoring of Trace Toxic Air Pollutants

    SBC: ChemSensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the program areas of interest to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the development of rapid, non-invasive monitors to detect exposure to toxic air pollutants at trace (ppt) levels. Of the 356 chemicals listed on the Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Office¿s List of Extremely Hazardous Substances (Section 302 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Kn ...

  7. Subsurface Treatment for Arsenic Removal

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Subsurface treatment for arsenic removal (STAR) is an innovative technology for treatment of arsenic in groundwater at the wellhead. The STAR technology can result in large cost savings when compared with conventional above-ground treatment methods. The goal is to create a subsurface biogeochemical barrier composed of reactive iron hydroxide minerals and iron bacteria within the aquifer surround ...

  8. Efficient Regenerating Oxidizer for Destruction of Volatile Organic Compounds

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY & EDUCATION CTR            Topic: N/A

    To help improve air quality, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking innovative and cost-effective new technologies to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the emissions of stationary sources. The current technologies, carbon adsorbers and catalytic thermal oxidizers, are heavy, expensive, insufficiently regenerating, and sometimes not sufficiently effective to meet regulator ...

  9. Near-Zero VOC General OEM Bake Enamel

    SBC: Finishes Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Finishes Unlimited, Inc., produces baking enamels for general purpose original equipment manufacturers who make sundry metal products such as lockers, tool boxes, compressors, folding chairs, storage racks, etc. Although it is a small company, Finishes Unlimited, Inc., has been among the leaders in one type of environmentally friendly coatings (i.e., waterborne bake enamels). In 1993, it became ...

  10. An Innovative Sampler as a Reference Standard for Measurement of Particulate Matter Mass in Ambient Air

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ambient particulate matter (PM) mass exposure is determined by collecting the PM on a sample filter over a period of 24 hours. Because the composition of ambient PM is constantly changing, the PM mass measured using the reference method may not be representative of the PM levels in the atmosphere, primarily due to the loss of collected semi-volatile material that is present in the atmosphere duri ...
