  2. Affordable, Large Scale Manufacturing of High Surface Area Iron Powder

    SBC: ONMATERIALS, LLC            Topic: C3NCERPF

    Contaminated groundwater presents a widespread environmental challenge in America today. Existing treatment methods are imperfect in that they are either slow, expensive, or unable to treat the full spectrum of groundwater contaminants. Prior work has demonstrated that zero valent iron can detoxify groundwater contaminated with halogenated hydrocarbons and other toxic chemicals. The be ...

  3. A New Compact Portable Field Instrument for Continuous Real-Time Measurement of Trace Organic Air Pollution Emissions Using Jet-REMPI Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: OPOTEK, INC.            Topic: C3NCERPH

    The goal of this research project is to develop a compact portable instrument for the measurement of trace hydrocarbon vapors with high sensitivity and high chemical selectivity using the jet-resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (jet-REMPI) technique. This technology already has been proven to be highly effective for the real-time measurement of complex mixtures of hydrocarbon ...

  4. Low Cost Catalytic Production of High Quality Carbon Nanotube for Advanced Conductive Composites

    SBC: Intematix Corporation            Topic: C3NCERPA

    Carbon nanotube (CNT) has been identified as the best conductive filler material in plastic composites. CNT significantly enhances the electric conductivity of composites at a low doping level (approximately 1 percent) with improved mechanical strength. The application of such advanced conductive composites will result in significant economic and environmental benefits. For example, ...

  5. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and long-term mo ...

  6. Removal and Disposal of Perchlorate From Drinking Water by Novel Capacitive Deionization

    SBC: Material Methods            Topic: N/A

    The leading treatments for perchlorate removal are ion exchange with catalytic destruction and bioreactors. These treatments require significant labor and material inputs. The associated operating costs prohibit scaling to small systems (fewer than 25 people or 15 service connections). Even in large systems, the leading treatments are expensive, costing $100-$200/acre-ft, or 20-40 percent of wh ...

  7. Multi-Analyte Nanoelectronic Air Pollutant Sensors

    SBC: Nanomix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nanomix, Inc., proposes to develop and commercialize nanoelectronic chemical sensors for the detection and measurement of air pollution. The end product of the work, a tiny, low-cost nanosensor chip, will measure concentrations of three different analytes down to the single molecule level. The proposed work is an extension of the gas sensing technology developed at Nanomix, Inc., using carbon na ...

  8. Multi-Analyte Nanoelectronic Air Pollutant Sensors

    SBC: Nanomix, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA1

    Nanomix, Inc., proposes to develop and commercialize nanoelectronic chemical sensors for the detection and measurement of air pollution. The end product of the work, a tiny, low-cost nanosensor chip, will measure concentrations of three different analytes down to the single molecule level. The proposed work is an extension of the gas sensing technology developed at Nanomix, Inc., us ...

  9. Microchip Capillary Electrophoresis for On-Line Measurement of Inorganic Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA2

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified the need for continuous monitors that can operate unattended and provide real-time data on the concentration of the major chemical components of PM2.5, defined as particles with diameters of less than 2.5 µm. The chemical composition of fine airborne particles is needed to identify sources, understand formation mechani ...

  10. A Carrier for Quantitative Shipment of Coarse Particle Filter Samples

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA2

    Concern for the potential health effects of inhaled particulates led to a federal standard governing coarse particles, or PM10, for particles below 10 µm and subsequently to a fine particle (PM2.5) standard in 1997, for particles below 2.5 µm. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) retained the PM10 standard because all particles below 10 µm can penetrate into ...
