  1. Novel Membranes for Natural Gas Dehydration

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: B

    "Before entering the national pipeline distribution system, all natural gas must be dried, which is currently achieved using glycol dehydrators. However, the glycol dehydrators extract hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the raw natural gas streams, In the U.S. alone the VOC emissions from dehydrators total an estimated 44,000 tons per year, half of which are benzene, toluene, ethyl ...

  2. 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, ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Combination of Chlorine-Free Electrolytic and Photochemical Methods for Sterilization of Contaminated Waters

    SBC: MICRO-TRACERS INC.            Topic: F

    "Effective electrolytic sanitizing of contaminated waters using chloride requires a relatively high concentration of the elemental chlorine and hypochlorides. This requires a high concentration of chloride salt (higher the 0.15%). At such a concentration, chloride ions cause corrosion of various bimetal connections found in water plumbing systems, such as water distributors, cooling towers, etc. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Compact, Cost-Effective Nitrogen Dioxide Analyzer for NAAQS Compliance Monitoring

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: G

    "In this SBIR effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposed to employ incoherent Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy (iCRDS) to develop a compact, cost-effective nitrogen dioxide (CO2) analyzer for National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) compliance monitoring. This portable instrument will provide rapid (1 Hz), highly accurate (to better than ± 1ppbv) quantification of NO2 with minimal calibration or ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
