  1. Enhanced Decontamination of Wetted Pipe Material

    SBC: ENCHEM ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: E

    This project focuses on dissolution and destruction of adhered or trapped target compounds, such as pesticides on wetted porous surfaces (e.g., pipe walls). Our innovative treatment approach is based on simultaneous: (1) desorption from the pipe wall, and (2) oxidation via radical formation. OxyZone-C®, a proprietary reactive agent developed by our team, combines highly effective cyclodextrin­fa ...

  2. Micro Channel Electrochemical Production of Dimethyl Carbonate

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: B

    Presently, there are no U.S. manufacturers for producing dimethyl carbonate (DMC), an environmentally benign and nonflammable solvent used in numerous applications. This strategically important solvent is used in numerous products, ranging from batteries to plastics, with most production occurring in China. DMC is a favored solvent for lithium ion batters due to its low volatility and nonflammable ...

  6. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...
