  2. Biofuel Production from Grease Trap Waste

    SBC: Environmental Fuel Research, LLC            Topic: F

    Environmental Fuel Research, LLC, proposes to commercialize a grease trap waste to biofuel process based on process research from Drexel University. Grease trap waste is dirty and low-value material produced by the food service industry that is high in lipids that can be converted to biodiesel. The quantity of grease trap waste in the United States could produce one-half billion gallons of biodies ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to determine if chemicals used in commerce may have hormonal effects in humans. There are mo ...

  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. Method To Remediate Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazards

    SBC: EMEC Consultants            Topic: N/A

    This research project aims to modify an environmentally and occupationally favorable novel method to remove lead-based paint from steel for use on nonconductive substrates such as wood, cement, brick, and cinder block. If successful, a convenient, dust-free method will be available for safe indoor and outdoor site remediation involving lead hazards and waste. Minimal occupational hazards and rec ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. New Granular Sorbent Sulfurization Process for Vapor- and Liquid-Phase Mercury Control

    SBC: PROFESSIONAL ANALYTICAL AND CONSULTING SERVICES INC            Topic: N/A

    Cost-effective mercury (Hg) (organic forms, elemental and oxidized species) control is needed for incinerator plant flue gas emissions and many aqueous-phase applications. Sulfurizing activated carbons (AC) are known to increase their Hg kinetics and capacity through chemisorption (Hg + S ? HgS). Present commercial sulfur (S) impregnated AC (IAC-S) capacity needs to be improved 10¿100 times t ...

  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 ...
