  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Hazardous Waste Management Using a New Sparker Process

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity of this proposal is to develop a new ¿Sparker¿ process for treating organic hazardous contaminants in water and liquid waste, including persistent and bioaccumulative and toxic chemical (PBT¿s), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH¿s). Sparker technology also has potential for in-situ treatment of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL¿s) and sludge. Sparkers ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Field Rugged, Portable H2O2 Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will support the development of a field-portable instrument for monitoring and controlling hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration during building decontamination after accidental or purposeful exposure to hazardous biological materials. The goal of Phases I through III is to develop a product that enables accurate real-time H2O2 measurements over the concentration range of 1-10, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. A Compact, Low-Cost, Near-UV Sensor for Chlorine Dioxide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes the development of an optical, near-ultraviolet chlorine dioxide sensor having a measurement range for about 0.01 to 2000 ppm with a response time of less than 10 seconds. The sensors will be compact - about the size of a 1quart milk carton including electronic and optics - operate a low power, and be outfitted with wireless communications interface to permit remote, u ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Novel Polymeric Building Decontamination Technologies

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX has previously evaluated the efficacy of polymeric materials in the removal of chemical and biological agents form surfaces. The system previously evaluated showed better than 2-log removal of simulants for both chemical and biological agents. TIAX is proposing under this SBIR proposal to significantly broaden the scope of the technology through application of proprietary systems to demon ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  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 ...
