  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Nanoporous Metal Organic Framework Filters for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: TopicC

    The objective of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of using some newly discovered materials, water-stable metal-organic frameworks (MOF), as filters for pollutants common in indoor air. By way of background, recent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-supported work from Professor Masel’s laboratory has shown that a new class of water-stable MOFs shows unprecedented ad ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Efficient Distributed Energy Generation System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicA

    Distributed energy offers a means of providing reliable, cost-effective electrical power to residents of rural communities. These requirements often cannot be met by current distribution methods due to limitation of remote central station power generation and transmission. With the migration of population from urban areas to rural areas and the increased power demands placed on electrical grids fr ...

  8. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Triglycerides to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    There is a finite amount of fossil fuels, which will only last a few more decades. Therefore, it is imperative to develop renewable sources of energy. An area that has recently attracted a lot of attention is the conversion of renewable oils to biodiesel, primarily through the methanolysis of triglycerides. The use of an immobilized lipase as a heterogeneous biocatalyst to transform oils into biod ...
