  4. 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 ...

  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. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of

    SBIR Phase I 2016 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Radio Frequency Catalytic Decontamination

    SBC: Zeteo Tech LLC            Topic: 15NCER07

    The novel RFCAT technology will allow for safe and rapid decontamination of biological agents on railroad and subway cars. The technology creates biocidal conditions on external and internal surfaces of the rail and subway cars. The technology has been demonstrated on building materials and will be modified for the surfaces found in rail and subway cars. Additionally the system will kill odor and ...

  9. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Over 50 million Indian households cook on a bio-mass fire and have unreliable or no electricity but are anxious to purchase an affordable power stove which will provide on-demand power and lighting to their homes. Annually, projected sales of the power stove could save sixteen million trees, reduce cooking fire particulates by 90%, reduce the two million premature deaths caused from indoor air pol ...

    SBIR Phase I 2016 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. 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 ...
