  1. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    The drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan reminds us that lead remains dangerous and insidious toxicant that can impact public health for months or years before it is detected and remedied.Increasing awareness of lead contamination has motivated the general public to test their own drinking water, but few tools are availiable to help these "citizen scientist" do so effectively.Current lead scre ...

  2. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    As recent crises in Flint, Michigan and Washington D.C. have demonstrated, elevated lead levels (ELL’s) can very suddenly and unexpectedly be introduced to water supplies through seemingly unrelated water system alterations. Ingestion of even trace amounts of lead can have detrimental permanent health effects, especially in children; the public is rightly concerned about lead content in the wate ...

  3. Ultra-Thin, Magnetic Polymer Membranes for the Selective Removal of Macronutrients in Wastewater

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Phosphorous and nitrogen are valuable nutrients found in wastewater. The flow of phosphorous from rocks to the natural waterway has increased in recent years, due in large part to agricultural production. In addition to being a nutrient, phosphorous is a contaminant in aquatic environments that leads to the formation of organic material and algae. Recovery of phosphorous from wastewater will ensur ...

  7. Green Materials for Doubling the Life of Drinking Water Pipeline

    SBC: HJ3 Composite Technologies, LLC            Topic: B

    Of the18,000 miles of pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) within the drinking water transmission infrastructure laid between 1945 and 1996 in the United States, almost one-half, or 8,600 miles of pipe, is considered to be end-of-life infrastructure, awaiting funding for replacement. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave the United States a grade of D for its drinking water inf ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Remediation of Oil Contaminated Ground and Surface Water Using Sulfate Nanofiltration Combined with High Efficiency On-Site Generation of Peroxodisulfate Using Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrodes

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will employ Nanofiltration to generate sulfate ion feedstocks and high current density on-site generation (synthesis) of the powerful oxidant peroxodisulphate (“persulfate”) with novel, high reliability boron-doped untrananocrystal-line diamond (UNCD) electrodes to dramatically lower the cost of unconventional fossil fuel (FF) waste water ...

    SBIR Phase I 2013 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Low Cost, Efficient Microchannel Plasma Ozone Generator for Point of Use Water Treatment

    SBC: EP Purification, Inc.            Topic: A

    A team of EP Purification and the University of Illinois engineer and chemists is pursuing the commercialization of low cost microchannel plasma modules capable of efficiently producing ozone for water treatment. The conservation of water resources for human consumption is a growing national priority. Contamination of ground municipal water by animal manure, fertilizer and pharmaceuticals, for e ...

  10. Electrolytic Reactor for N Removal from Existing Septic Tanks

    SBC: Enviro Utilities, Inc.            Topic: A

    According to the US EPA 2002 Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems Manual, approximately 26 million homes, businesses, and recreational facilities in the United States use onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems (OWTD) (also called septic systems). Numerous studies have found correlations between OWTDs and elevated NO3 levels in drinking water. The U.S. EPA has reported that nitrates (NO3 ...
