  1. Reactive Scrubbing for Mercury Removal and Stabilization

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

    The release of mercury into the environment via combustion processes has become an issue of concern for the US and the entire world. Major sources either are regulated or are under review to develop regulations to reduce emissions. ADA Technologies has successfully demonstrated the performance of a novel reactive scrubbing technology for the removal of vapor-phase mercury from incinerator exhaus ...

  2. Continuous Extraction of Heavy Metals From AMD Streams


    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a polymeric system that is capable of binding and removing heavy metal ions from an acid mine drainage (AMD) stream. In addition, this system will undergo controlled release of these metal ions that does not depend on changes in pH or the introduction of special solvents. The proposed system will undergo multiple cycles of metal binding an ...

  3. Efficient Acid Mine Drainage Multimetal Removal/Recovery


    Eltron Research, Inc., is seeking to develop an automated, solar-powered, flow-through prototype acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment system for unattended mitigation of AMD at thousands of abandoned mines and AMD currently entering the environment without any treatment. Harmful metals that are not readily degraded or detoxified enter the environment in significant quantities via numerous industria ...

  4. Combustion Systhesis of Nanoparticle Metal Phosphate Catode Materials for Improved Lithium Ion Batteries


    This Phase I research project will focus on the production of nanoparticle metal phosphates for improved lithium ion battery cathodes. Nickel-cadmium batteries have a significant worldwide environmental impact due to improper disposal. As a consequence, toxic heavy metals such as nickel and cadmium are released into the environment and have severe adverse affects on humans. Lithium ion batterie ...

  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. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptmer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) proce ...

  7. Monitoring Multiple Volatile Compounds With Cost-Effective Optical Remote Sensing Instrumentation

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Future air pollution monitors must become widely deployed and have the ability to monitor continuously in real time. To be widely deployed, they must be inexpensive and monitor multiple species with one sensor. Currently, each sensor must be uniquely developed (and uniquely different) for each species being studied. This increases sensor cost, limiting the sensor¿s availability and utility. ...

  8. Triggered-Release Biocidal Nanocomposte Coatings

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biocidal additives are vital for both the preservation of coatings in the can as well as for long-term coating integrity after applications. Anti-fungal additives are critical for delaying attack by fungal and algal growth once an architectural coating is in place. Biocidal coatings are designed to kill microbes and fungi by slowly and steadily releasing biocide from the dried film. Unfortunat ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Pipeline-Quality Methane from Anaeronbic Digestion Streams

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: I

    Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If consumed properly, use of manure-derived fuels can also protect against environmental problems such as ...
