  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 ...

  2. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this project is to complete the research and development of an innovative process technology to enhance the economics of biodiesel production, through upgrading the byproduct glycerol to a propane fuel (LPG), which (a) is widely used today, (b) has an existing distribution system, (c) can accommodate the large volumes of byproduct glycerol, and (d) which has attractive economic ...

  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 ...

  5. Innovative Ultraviolet Light Source for Disinfection of Drinking Water

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    New regulations for drinking water treatment are leading to alternatives to chlorine disinfection. As a result, the use of ultraviolet (UV) light for disinfection is growing rapidly. The disinfection capability of commercial UV systems is limited by available mercury lamp technology. Phoenix Science & Technology's innovative Surface Discharge (SD) UV lamp is a promising candidate to both improve t ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Wireless Electrochemical ClO2 Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recognizing the importance of ClO2 in disinfection and decontamination operations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had identified the need for portable, accurate and field-rugged chlorine dioxide (ClO2) monitors for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. To address the EPA's concern and need, this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will contin ...

  10. Reduced Cost Sewer Pipe Relining Using Ultrasonic Lamination

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I program, Foster-Miller developed techniques based on Ultrasonic Tape Lamination (UTL) for joining of plasticized PVC sewer pipe liner. This effort was undertaken in response to a need for environmentally sound and cost-effective methods for rehabilitation of aging water and sewerage pipe rehabilitation infrastructure. Ultrasonic lamination has several significant advantages over ...
