  1. Development of a Real-Time Flare Combustion Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: Providence Photonics, LLC            Topic: E

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes a portable microfluidic automation technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of microcystins and other toxins produced by freshwater cyanobacteria (cyanotoxins). During blooms, many cyanotoxins in freshwater are known to cause damage to liver or damage to nerve axons and synapses. Though not strictly regulated, the EPA recomme ...

  2. Biofuel Production from Grease Trap Waste

    SBC: Environmental Fuel Research, LLC            Topic: F

    Environmental Fuel Research, LLC, proposes to commercialize a grease trap waste to biofuel process based on process research from Drexel University. Grease trap waste is dirty and low-value material produced by the food service industry that is high in lipids that can be converted to biodiesel. The quantity of grease trap waste in the United States could produce one-half billion gallons of biodies ...

  3. Inexpensive High Performance Continuous Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: D

    Environmental studies have proven that ammonia (NH3) presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, accurate monitoring and control of NH3 concentration is required inorder to maintain appropriate air quality levels. Atmospheric ammonia contributes directly and indirectly to acidification, eutrophication, human health and climate change. For air pollution monitoring, the ammonia concentr ...

  4. Cognitive Residential Heat Pump Fault Detection and Diagnostic Datalogger

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 9010173R

    Millions of heat pumps are used to heat and cool homes and buildings year round. Continuous operation means that components wear out at a greater rate. As a result, maintenance of residential heat pumps is a major cost driver. Current methods focus on reduced use through control settings. Typically, demand has wide swings throughout the day and people are unable to customize controls. Inevitably, ...

  5. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green algae, form blooms that make a surface scum and have been associated with low levels of dissolved oxygen that can be lethal ...

  6. Advanced Slagging Gasifier for Biomas Wastes

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Gasification provides a potential means of deriving clean energy from biomass waste materials. One of the greatest obstacles to the effective gasification of animal and farm waste is the slagging behavior of the residual ash at temperatures that yield the most efficient gasification performance. Many wastes are particularly problematic for dry ash gasification processes, especially waste from co ...

  7. Fine and Course Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitoring

    SBC: Baldwin Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Baldwin Environmental Inc. (BEI) successfully completed an SBIR Phase I project that demonstrated the feasibility of designing and producing a Fine and Coarse Particulate Monitoring System (FCPMCEMS). This system simultaneously measures and reports mass concentrations of fine and coarse particulate material using Atmospheric Dispersion Simulation and Beta Attenuation Monitoring (BAM). A design a ...

  8. Ultra Sensitive Rama Device for Detecting Arsenic in Water Utilizing Fractal/Microcavity Composite

    SBC: LaSys, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LaSys, Inc., utilizing the unique spectral characteristics of its proprietary fractal-microcavity composite will be used to perform the proof-of-concept research required to develop an ultra-sensitive optical detector of low concentration of arsenic in water based on the Raman effect. Phase I technical objectives are designed to demonstrate that fractal microcavity composite - SERS spectroscopy i ...

  9. New Process for Perchlorate Reduction in Drinking Water Treatment Units


    Perchlorate contamination of ground waters and drinking water supplies is emerging as a major problem because it causes irreversible brain damage and other health effects, especially in the fetus and young children. Present perchlorate treatment is expensive and creates a secondary brine, with high levels of nitrate and perchlorate for its users to deal with. Our SBIR project is expected to prov ...

  10. A Compact, Low-Cost, Near-UV Sensor for Chlorine Dioxide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes the development of an optical, near-ultraviolet chlorine dioxide sensor having a measurement range for about 0.01 to 2000 ppm with a response time of less than 10 seconds. The sensors will be compact - about the size of a 1quart milk carton including electronic and optics - operate a low power, and be outfitted with wireless communications interface to permit remote, u ...
