  1. Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

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

    It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to determine if chemicals used in commerce may have hormonal effects in humans. There are mo ...

  2. Arsenic Removal System for Residential and Point-of-Use Applications

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

    Arsenic contamination in drinking water is a severe health risk to populations throughout the world, including the United States. In recognition of this threat, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently lowered its water standard for arsenic from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. This change is expected to impact 10 percent of U.S. community drinking water systems. The operators of small water sy ...

  3. Active-Core Optical Fiber Ammonia Sensor

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

    Oxides of nitrogen, or NOx, are common air pollutants in congested urban areas. NOx contributes to a variety of environmental problems, including ground-level ozone (smog), acid rain, and visibility impairment. NOx emissions are generated by motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and electric power plants. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 required that stationary sources, such as power plan ...

  4. Impregnated Clay Sorbents for Mercury Removal From Flue Gas

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

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced its intention to regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants because of mercury¿s impact on the health and development of young children and fetuses. The estimated cost of controlling mercury emissions from power plants runs from $2 to $5 billion annually, with a significant fraction of the total dedicated to activated carb ...

  5. Low-Cost Mercury Sorbents Derived From Waste Tires

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research project, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., addresses two important environmental problems: (1) removal and recovery of mercury from combustion/incineration flue gas, and (2) reprocessing of waste tires into value-added products. Coal combustion and incineration of municipal and hazardous wastes results in air pollution due to emissions of trace amounts of heavy metals. Because of t ...

  6. Acoustically Excited Inertial Tympanum Particulate Matter Nanobalance


    Improving particulate matter (PM) analysis technology for on-vehicle measurements remains a significant challenge. The requirement for accurate and highly precise real-time measurement, capable of on-vehicle applications, is rapidly increasing. Expanding demand for compliance measurements, and assessing and evaluating engine performance development and emergent exhaust aftertreatment technologie ...

  7. Nano Alumina Arsenic Filter

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Improved methods are sought for removing arsenic from drinking water to meet the new 10 ¿g/L standard. Argonide Corporation proposes to develop point-of-entrance and point-of-use (POE/POU) filters that would efficiently remove arsenic down to this limit. The active ingredient of this filter would be a new form of ¿activated¿ alumina, with nano-sized (approximately 2 nm diameter) fibrous dimen ...

  8. SiC-Microhotplate ConductometricSensor Array for NOx, CO, and Hydrocarbon Monitoring of Hot Engine Emissions

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the number of mobile source emissions in the United States increases, it is necessary to further reduce the emission of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbons from such sources to provide safe air quality, especially in urban environments. Significant reductions in pollution emissions can be achieved using advanced engine controls based on real-time measurements of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbon concentrations i ...

  9. Affordable, Large-Scale Manufacturing of High Surface Area Iron Powder

    SBC: ONMATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Contaminated groundwater containing trichloroethylene and similar halogenated hydrocarbons poses a large-scale environmental challenge. Existing treatment methods are imperfect in that they are slow, expensive, fail to treat the full spectrum of groundwater contaminants, and sometimes produce even more toxic partially chlorinated chemical intermediaries. In the past decade, techniques have emerg ...

  10. Mixed Potential-Based Miniature Sensors for Real-Time On-Vehicle NOx Monitoring From Mobile Sources

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide (jointly represented as NOx) constitute one of the primary classes of pollutants in engine exhaust from both on-road mobile sources such as diesel trucks, and off-road sources such as tractors. Monitoring the NOx concentration in exhaust streams is critical for efficient application of new technologies for the reduction of NOx emissions, and for the enforcement o ...
