  1. Neurotoxin and Cytotoxin Detection in Water Supplies During Sample Collection

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: C3NCERPC

    There has been an alarming increase in toxic cyanobacteria over the past 2 decades, with numerous poisonings reported from Australia to the United States. The increased toxic risks led the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to include cyanotoxins on the 1998 Contaminant Candidate List. Most cyanobacterial blooms, however, are not toxic. Furthermore, bloom toxicity will change o ...

  2. DRY SCRUBBING OF SOX AND NOX OVER LANTHANIDE-OXYGEN- SULFUR COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING PROCESSES FOR COMBINED REMOVAL OF SOX/NOX FROM COMBUSTION GASES HAVE NOT BEEN PROVEN TO BE PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE IN MEETING CURRENT EMISSION STANDARDS. SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTIONS FOR NOX REMOVAL ARE AVAILABLE, AND ARE EFFECTIVE IN REACHING CURRENT EMISSION STANDARDS, BUT THEY ARE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE IN MANY APPLICATIONS BECAUSE OF THE HIGH INITIAL COST OF THE CATALYST AND ITS REP ...

  3. REDUCTION OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION BY MEMBRANE STRIPPING OOF WATERBORNE RADON GAS

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    RADON-222 IN INDOOR AIR HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A PERVASIVE POLLUTANT AND A SIGNIFICANT HEALTH THREAT. ARETE TECHNOLOGIES PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A MEMBRANE-BASED SYSTEMFOR MITIGATING THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM TO WHICH WATERBORNE RADON GAS CAN CONTRIBUTE. THE SYSTEM, WHICH OPERATES AT WATER SUPPLY PRESSURE, AVOIDS THE PROBLEMS OF RADIOACTIVITY BUILDUP AND SPENT CARBON DISPOSAL ASSOCIATED WIT ...

  6. MEMS-Based Volatile Organic Compound Monitor

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems, Inc. (BMS), proposes to develop a MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) based volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor by integrating analyte-specific polymer films with SiC-AlN microresonators. In this research project, BMS and the Naval Research Laboratory will integrate microresonators and polymer films with functional groups sensitive to aromatic compounds (e.g., benzene an ...

  7. Novel Ceramic Membrane Bioreactor for Low-Flow Systems

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improved low-flow (50,000 gallons per day) sanitary wastewater treatment systems are needed. CeraMem Corporation¿s proposed approach includes a membrane bioreactor (MBR) using fully proven biological processes for biological oxygen demand oxidation and (optionally) for nutrient removal (i.e., denitrification and phosphorus removal). The technology has as a key inventive element¿a novel, compac ...

  8. Ultrasensitive Toxic Chemical Detector

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The ability to detect and identify trace quantities of hazardous materials has become a significant requirement for protecting the population during the war on terrorism. However, the ability to detect and identify trace concentrations of a wide range of chemicals in the field using a man-portable instrument is severely limited. The ability to quickly and reliably identify toxic industrial chemi ...

  9. 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 ...
