  1. 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 ...

  3. Reducing Diesel Soot With an Atmospheric Plasma Metallic Filter

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Most buses, heavy-duty fleet vehicles, and construction and farm machinery are equipped with diesel engines. The diesel engine is an energy-efficient machine, but its exhaust emissions present a serious health and environmental problem. Drastic reductions in exhaust soot have been mandated throughout the world, including the recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandate to reduce smog- ...

  5. Development of a Cavitating Jet System for Removal of Pesticides and Other Pollutants From Wastewater Discharge

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    Dynaflow, Inc., proposes the development of a novel jet-induced cavitation process for the removal of various pollutants¿including pesticides from wastewater discharge¿ that would be economical, readily applicable to both large- and small-scale systems, and that does not produce potentially hazardous by-products of chlorination and ozonation. Ultrasonically induced cavitation is known to be capa ...

  6. A Portable Flow Cytometer Suitable for the Rapid Detection of Adenovirus in Wastewater

    SBC: Geomet Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop a portable system for the real-time detection and quantification of adenovirus in wastewater. The system is based on a small, portable flow cytometer that was developed and is being marketed by Becton Dickinson Biosciences (BDB) under the trade name FACSCount¿ for use in selected medical and research applications. Unlike previous efforts to apply flow cytome ...

  9. SELEX DNA Aptamer Filter for Removal of Pesticides and Chloroaromatics

    SBC: OMNISITE BIODIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OmniSite BioDiagnostics, Inc. (OmniSite) proposes to develop artificial receptors composed of DNA oligomers (called "aptamers") for binding and removal of organophosphorous and chlorinated pesticides. Aptamers will be generated by the systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment (SELEX) combinatorial chemistry technique. SELEX aptamers offer several major advantages over antibody tech ...

  10. Low-Cost Machining Without Cutting Fluids

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cutting fluids have been used in machining processes for many years to decrease the temperature during machining by spraying the coolant into the machining zone, directly on the cutting tool and the part. This has the effect of decreasing the tool temperature, which increases tool life and improves the part quality. These benefits come with significant drawbacks. Cutting fluids are environmenta ...
