  1. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...

  2. Power for Animal Wastes System Gasifier

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Animal wastes are a n environmental problem, particularly in fee lot areas were animals are concentrated. If the wastes could be upgraded to a fuel by gasification and then burned inefficient small-scale engines, high value electric power and process heat could be produced, while mitigating environmental problems. The proposed small-scale power generation concept uses innovative methods to pre-t ...

  3. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are over 480,000 trucks on the US roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs of CO and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year, while idling to produce auxiliary power needed for the driver¿s comfort. A Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Base APU (QRCFC-APU) is proposed to significantly reduce these emissions. QRCFC overcomes the challenges with the diesel fuel reforming and ...

  4. An Integrated Ventilation, Vapor Compression and Indirect Evaporative Cooling Systme

    SBC: Davis Energy Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses environmental problems associated with indoor air quality (IAQ) and energy consumption in residential buildings. As building envelopes become increasingly tight to satisfy energy efficiency requirements, health conditions that are correlated with indoor air quality - such as asthma and allergic diseases - are on the rise. The most effective strategy to improve IAQ is vent ...

  5. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and 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 o adverse health effects, especially in children. On-site and real-time detection and quantification of lead in the paint/dust is very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as x-ray fluorescence ...

  6. Integraion of Biological High Throughput Data with a Metabolic Model of a Liver Cell

    SBC: GENOMATICA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A large number of potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants in the environment make comprehensive experimental chemical testing cost prohibitive and unrealistic. Methods that can decrease the required experimental work and aid in the streamlining of this process would provide a valuable tool in this area. Computational cellular modeling can provide a significant improvement in linking exposur ...

  7. Streamlining Green Building Design- Developing the Sustainable Design Suite

    SBC: Green Building Studio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project¿s intent is to enhance the Green Building Studio web service to incorporate various data and analyses that enable architects and other building designers to design sustainable buildings much more cost effectively. Today¿s building designers are struggling to design sustainable buildings and this solution is designed to make that task much easier. This enhanced service will be call ...

  8. Environmentally Benign Production of Nanoscale Materials

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed sorbents will have potential applications in i) industrial wastewater treatment plants, ii) municipal wastewater treatment plants, iii) nuclear waste treatment plants, iv) drinking water treatment plants, v) several types of existing point-of-use and point-of-entry water purifying systems, and vi) for remediation of various mercury contaminated sites using permeable reactive barrier ( ...

  9. Real-time Reagentless and Arrayed Detector for the Monitoring of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occur in aquatic environments when conditions trigger an increase in the abundance of organisms that produce toxins. The toxins are transferred through the food web where they affect and even kill zooplankton, shellfish, fish, birds, marine mammals, and possibly humans. HABs have been estimated to cost the U.S. economy as much as $50 million per year due to the closure ...

  10. A Membrane Preconcentrator for Portable Trace VOC Detectors


    The sensitivity of low-cost, portable volatile organic compound (VOC) detectors currently is use is low, which limits their application in many situations. More sensitive detectors are more expensive and less robust and not suitable for field use. This proposal describes the development of a membrane-based preconcentrator able to concentrate trace amounts of VOC contaminants to levels that can b ...
