  1. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    "As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship. However, in adopting this strategy there will be an increasing need to implement a more cost effective, ...

  2. Advanced Contaminant Inactivation System for Drinking Water

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: E

    "The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small ...

  3. Development of a Scalable, Low-Cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop and ready for commercialization a scalable, low-cost process for purification of water containing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) using anodic oxidation with boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD®) thin films. Resent research demonstrated that there is considerable potential for the development of electrochemica ...

  4. A Real-Time, Sensitive and Affordable Fast-Response Elemental Carbon Monitor

    SBC: EcoChem Analytics            Topic: G

    "This SBIR Phase I project will develop an affordable, sensitive, fast-response solution to real-time monitoring of Elemental Carbon (EC). EcoChem will employ a proven sensor technology, the photoemission aerosol sensor (PAS) to detect EC. The PAS photoionizes carbonaceous aerosols with a unique excimer lamp [Burtscher, 1992] whose wavelength is chosen to selectively ionize EX and polycyclic aro ...

  5. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    "OPTRA proposes a Fourier transform phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (FT-PS-CRDS) system for high sensitivity detection of air toxic compounds. Our system operates in the 400-4000 cm-1 spectral range wherein lie vapor phase resonance bands for most air toxic compounds and hazardous chemicals; the spectral resolution is 4-16 cm-1, depending on the discrimination requirements. Our approac ...

  6. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  7. A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: I

    "Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. This widespread nitrate contamination has led to significant environmental consequences. In particul ...

  8. Handheld FRET-Aptamer Sensor for Chem-Bio Threats

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: J

    "Operational Technology Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the ultrasensitivity of fluorescence-based detection with the high selectivity of synthetic DNA aptamers as replacements for antibodies to detect chemical and biological (CB) terrorism threats in 10 minutes or less from a variety of swabbed surfaces and liquid matrices. OpTech has previously provided strong proof-of-concept for a rap ...

  9. Silver Ion Formulations for the Control of Bacterial Plant Pathogens and to Reduce Bactericide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 82

    While bacteria cause fewer plant diseases than fungi and viruses, they do cause serious economic damages to both US and worldwide agriculture. Citrus canker caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis has resulted in the destruction of over 20 million trees in Florida, while fire blight caused by Erwinia amylovora costs exceed $100 million per year in the United States alone, and recent epidemics have cost o ...

  10. Removal of Isomeric Ballast in Agrochemicals Using an Inulin Based Agro-Product

    SBC: AZYP, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agrochemical sales is a vast world market which exceeded $119 billion in sales in 2009 and is expected to grown at a rate of 10.4% in the next 3 to 5 years. China and India are the world's largest users of agrochemicals. This has allowed Asia to dominate the market and account for 43% of sales. The US is the second largest revenue generator, bringing in approximately 20% of global agrochemica ...
