  1. MEMS Biosensor for In Situ Drinking Water Analysis

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of causative agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and other pathogens in water supplies presents a critical issue. Transmitted through water and animals, these organisms provide a reservoir of infection, which results in the excretion of the environmentally stable cysts or oocysts that are impervious to inactivation by many drinking water disinfectants. Cryptosporidium infections a ...

  3. A New Microfludic System for the Determination of Cryptosporidium Oocysts in Water

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosporidium, originating from contamination of public drinking water supplies, ponds, rivers, or swimming pools, have cause large-scale and deadly outbreaks, which became a major cause of waterborne infectious diseases. Since 1991, the percent of outbreaks attributable to Cryptosporidium has doubled, and in the 1993-1994 period, 17 percent of all outbreaks were caused by Cryptosporidium. In 19 ...

  4. A Novel Method for Converting a Negative Value Waste Into a Commodity Chemical

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It is estimated that there are approximately 300 million tires discarded each year in the United States and this is in addition to the 800 million scrap tires that reside in landfills and tire dumps throughout the country. About 180 million are recycled, and the remaining 120 million scrap tires are discarded (legally or illegally) in landfills or tire dumps. Current tire reuse technologies offer ...

    SBIR Phase I 2001 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. Novel Method for Ferrate Production

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New environmental regulations have identified many of the currently used oxidizing agents employed for industrial waste control, disinfection, and wastewater treatment as a caveat that must be addressed. Ferrate has potential for becoming the alternative of choice because of its aggressive oxidation properties and its negligible impact on the environment. However, there has been little industrial ...

  6. CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER.

    SBC: Photox International            Topic: N/A

    CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER. CURRENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES FOR CONTROLLING SUCH CONTAMINATION ARE LIMITED TO AERATION, ADSORPTION, AND LINKING. A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE IS PHOTOCHEMICAL OXIDATION, BUT THIS PROCESS IS AS YET UNOPTIMIZED, POORLY UNDERSTOOD, AND LARGELY LIMITED. PHOT ...

    SBIR Phase I 1983 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES REQUIRING THAT MATERIAL BE HEATED AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY COOLED. IF MOST OF THIS HEAT IS RECOVERED AND RECYCLED TO THE OVEN, THE NET POWER INPUT TO THE OVEN COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. THE KEY TO ACCOMPLISHING THIS IS AN INCREASE OF THE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT BETWEEN GAS AND MATERIAL SO THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE RESASONABLY COMPACT. SIMPLE EXPERIMEN ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. A FUZZY SET APPROACH FOR SEISMIC SAFETY MARGINS ASSESSMENT.

    SBC: Eda Consultants            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEVELOP A FUZZY SET METHODOLOGY FOR UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS IN PROBABILISTIC SEISMIC SAFETY ASSESSMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. FUZZY SET LOGIC WILL BEUSED FOR COLLECTING, QUANTIFYING AND PROPAGATING SUBJECTIVE,ENGINEERING JUDGEMENT USED IN THE UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS. IN PHASE I, FEASIBILITY OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY APPLYING IT TO SELECTED PARTS OF A PROBABI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. USE OF CERAMIC FUEL CLADDING TO REDUCE THE SEVERITY OF LMR ACCIDENTS

    SBC: Gamma Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING CERAMIC CLADDING MATERIALS TO REPLACE THE METALLIC CLADDING MATERIALS NOW USED WITH WATER REACTOR FUEL. SHOULD FEASIBILITY BE DETERMINED, AND EVENTUALLY COMMERCIALIZED, THE ABILITY OF WATER REACTORS TO WITHSTAND SEVERE ACCIDENTS WOULD BE ENHANCED. WITH TODAYS METAL CLAD FUEL, A RELATIVELY SHORT TIME PERIOD IS AVAILABLE AFTER A LOSS OF COOLANT ACCI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  10. MULTI-VORTEX SYSTEM FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL GAS

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MORE COST EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS (VOCS) FROM INDUSTRIAL EXHAUSTGAS. THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS TO COOL THE GAS WELL BELOW THE DEW POINT OF THE VOCS. NORMALLY, ICE AND DIRT FORM ON THE CONDENSING SURFACE, REDUCING THE HEAT TRANSFER RATE, REQUIRING SHUT-DOWN AND PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE. ENERGY INNOVATION, INC.'S, INNOVATION WILL ELIMINATE THESE REQUIRE ...
