  1. An Enhanced Contact Plasma Reactor: A Competitive Remediation Technology for Per- and Perfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) Contaminated Water

    SBC: Dmax Plasma LLC            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have received considerable attention due to their toxicity, ubiquitous presence and recalcitrance. Manufacture and disposal of PFAS-containing products has resulted in PFAS contamination of numerous water supplies. Recent reports indicate the Air Force alone is expecting to spend > $2.25 billion for cleanup for PFAS-contaminated sites. Thus, there is a huge market ...

  2. Replacements for PVC and PE Water Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: 17NCER1C

    METSS proposes to design a novel polymer system based on polypropylene with covalently attached antioxidants to mitigate issues with chemical permeation and water quality with current waterpipe materials. Polypropylene was selected as it has inherently good physical properties and low permeability that will limit chemical migration from the outside, addressing one critical factor impacting water q ...

  5. Feasibility of rPET Lignin-Content Polylols for Significant Reduction of Halogenated Flame Retardant in Construction Spray Foam

    SBC: Resinate Materials Group, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6A

    This EPA SBIR Phase I Research and Development proposal will demonstrate feasibility of reduction in halogenated flame retardant use in polyisocyanurate foams prepared from lignincontent rPET polyols. The study will show whether or not the lignin rPET polyol formulations meet ASTM flame retardancy standards and thus reduce or eliminate the need for halogenated fire retardants (HFRs) in spray foams ...

  9. Immobilized Enzyme Additive Package for Plant-Based Finfish Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc. DBA Guild Biosciences            Topic: 835

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A cost-effective, nutritious feed that minimally impacts the surrounding environment is critical to the profitability of a commercial aquaculture operations. As common sources of protein, such as fishmeal and fish processing byproducts, are becoming limited and more expensive to use, feed producers have turned to plant-based proteins. Plant-based feeds however, come with their ...
