  1. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  3. Novel Lignin-Based Magnetite Nanocomposites for Removal of Phosphate from Contaminated Waters

    SBC: SYNANOMET, LLC            Topic: B

    Phosphorus (P) remediation is an extremely difficult and costly environmental problem and could cost $44.5 billion dollars for treatment using conventional water treatment plants to meet EPA requirements. Phosphorous runoff can lead to“dead zones” due to eutrophication and can also cause hypoxia, leading to death of aquatic life that thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. None commercial prod ...

  4. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  6. Highly Bright, Heavy Metal-Free, and Stable Doped Semiconductor Nanophosphors for Economical Solid State Lighting Alternatives

    SBC: NANOMATERIALS AND NANOFABRICATION LABORATORIES            Topic: N/A

    There is growing concern about how to limit the release of mercury into the environment. One significant source of mercury is found in fluorescent lamps. Recently, however, compact fluorescent lamps have been heavily promoted in order to conserve electrical energy. While it is true that switching to energy efficient lighting is one of the easiest ways to save energy, reduce CO2 emissions, and save ...

  8. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X ray fluorescence ins ...

  10. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosoridium is a resilient waterborne protozoan pathogen that caused gastrointestinal disease and is one of five major causes for 5 million deaths each year worldwide. Recently, a Cryptosoridium outbreak has sickened more than 1,700 people, mostly children and teenagers in New York. Cryptosoridium oocysts are of particular interest in the water industry because the infectious dose is low (1to ...
