  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Solid State Sensor System for Inspection of Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A

    An important type of water pipe is the Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP). There are thousands of miles of PCCP installed in the US in sections with length up to 20 feet and diameter for 2 to 14 feet. The large size of the pipes, the thickness of the concrete (up to 10 inches) and the composite construction, which involved concrete, high strength prestressing steel wires and sheet steel c ...

  4. A Low-Cost Rare Earth Elements Recovery Technology

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: B

    Physical Sciences Inc. and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research propose to develop a unique enabling technology to significantly reduce U.S. dependency for Rare Earth Elements (REE) on foreign suppliers and our global competitors. Our innovation is a process that utilizes very inexpensive and abundant domestic raw materials for high-yield and low-cost generation of REE in ...

  5. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    We propose to develop anew monitor that provides composition information of particles in the ultrafine (10-100 nm) fine (100 nm– 2.5 µm) and coarse (2.5 – 10 µm) size modes in near real time. Particle monitoring technologies are important for better characterization of the environmental, health and visibility effects of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosol particles. Current monitoring t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2013 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, VOC-free and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coating based on its novel PTFE (Polytetraflouroethylene) fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents and vaporize during drying, creating a significant air quality impact. Even water-based formulations often require the use of fluorinated surfactant additives to ...
