  1. 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 ...

  2. Membrane Process for solvent Reclamation and Reuse


    Many commercial hydrophilic solvents form azeotropes or have vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) pinch points with water, which making solvent recovery by conventional distillation difficult. Solvents that form such azeotropes or have such pinch points include isopropyl alcohol (IPA), acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), ethyl acetate, ethanol, butanol and tetrahydrofuran. Molecular sieve drying is p ...

  3. Ultra-Sensitive Detection of Air Toxics Using Incoherent Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: G

    In this SBIR Phase I effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to design, build and test a novel Incoherent Cavity Ring Dow Spectroscopy (iCRDS) gas analyzer operating I the mid-infrared (MIR) region for the continuous, real-time, on-site detection of multiple air toxics in ambient air. Specific applications include EPA priorities such as: air quality monitoring at remediation sites, vapor intrus ...

  4. Fiber Optic Distributed Chemical Sensors for Environmental Impact Monitoring in Carbon Sequestration

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: F

    Technical and economical assessments suggest that over the next century the capture and storage of carbon dioxide in deep reservoirs (CCS) may contribute up to 20% of CO2-emission reductions. Reliable and cost-effective monitoring is required to demonstrate that CCS is safe, does not create adverse environmental impacts, and is an effective technology to control CO2 emissions. To meet this goal, ...

  5. Highly Efficient Water Management System for Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: H

    Life cycle analysis of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass combined with carbon capture has shown the potential to produce negative greenhouse gas emissions. More than a billion dry tons of freshly harvested lignocellulostic biomass is available at moisture contents between 20 and 60%. This material could be used for the sustainable production of biofuels. However, it is a challenge ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. Nanoparticle Enhanced Immunoassay for Monitoring Organic Pollutants

    SBC: Epicentre Technologies Corporation            Topic: C3NCERPA

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc. (IOS) has demonstrated the feasibility of achieving highly effective assays for organic pollutants on a continuous basis by adapting known principles of immunoassays in an innovative way. This achievement will make it possible to develop field-deployable monitoring systems to guard against the presence and effects of organic pollutants and other harmfu ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2004 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. 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 ...
