  1. An Alternative Concrete Chemistry with Significantly Enhanced Durability, Sustainability, Economy, Safety and Strength

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 14NCER5A

    Manufacturing of Portland cement, the primary binder in concrete, accounts for ~7% of global CO2 emissions, 4% of energy use, and exhaustion of natural resources. Premature aging of concrete in infrastructure systems is another major concern.  A robust binder chemistry has been developed to overcome these drawbacks.  The original approach to production of this binder, however, is not compatible ...

  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 develops and promotes innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promotes environmental stewardship. Testing and characterization of the environment for potentially harmful contaminants is a costly endeavor. Current technolo ...

  3. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  5. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2001 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 II 2001 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. 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 ...

  9. Determine and Confirm the Field Use Protocol for NANOProtect ¿Non-Toxic Decontaminate for Facilities and Equipment Following Bio Attack

    SBC: Bluewillow Biologics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NanoBio Corporation¿s antimicrobial nanoemulsion technology was developed by Dr. James R. Baker at the University of Michigan Medical School over a period of seven years. Reschard was funded by grants for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Program Agency), which identified a need to have a non-toxic, non-corrosive biodefence decon material that can decontaminated equipment, personnel, structures, ...

    SBIR Phase II 2005 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Value-Added Use of Milled Mixed-Color Waste Glass As a Supplementary Cementitious Material in Environmentally Friendly and Energy-Efficient Concrete Building Construction

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of cement (the binder in concrete) is a highly polluting and energy-intensive process, accounting for about 6% of global, anthropogenic C02 emissions and close to 2% of worldwide primary energy use. This project focuses on partial (~20%) replacement of cement in concrete with milled (mixed-color) waste glass to improve the moisture barrier qualities, durability, dimensional stability an ...
