  1. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  3. Pilot-testing a novel "Concentrate-&-Destroy" technology for 'green' and cost-effective destruction of PFAS in landfill leachate

    SBC: CTI AND ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 19NCER1C

    Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PF AS) have been widely used in everyday consumer products. Landfills are the final repository for the PF AS-containing products and wastes, and consequently, one of the major sources of PF AS to the environment. Elevated concentrations of PFAS in leachate have raised concerns regarding disposal of leachate. Yet, cost-effective treatment technologies for PF AS ...

  4. Integrated System for Water Disinfection and Bacteria Monitoring

    SBC: Espira, Inc.            Topic: 19NCER1D

    Espira Inc. has developed ElectroPur, a modular point-of-use (POU) drinking water disinfection and pathogen sensing system. The ElectroPur system includes an electrocatalytic titanium-based disinfection reactor that inactivates biological pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and protozoa) through the creation of powerful oxidative radicals and a highly sensitive biological sensor that can detect a range ...

  5. Advanced Electrochemical Inerting System For Food Preservation

    SBC: Xergy Incorporated            Topic: 19NCER5B

    Inerting, the process of suppressing oxidation ensures the freshness of food while retaining its nutrients and taste, extends the shelf-life of foods by up to eight times longer than other refrigerators. Xergy is proposing a low-cost, compact, simple to integrate and novel solid-state method of oxygen control based on an alkaline exchange membrane (AEM) electrolysis cell, a derivative technology f ...

  7. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-Organic Frameworks-Based Pretreatment Technology for the Remediation of PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    Per- and polyflouralkyl substances, otherwise known as PFAS, are a large group of chemicals including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). These chemicals have a large variety of uses globally. Remediation of PFAS has gained importance due to their environmental persistence and toxicity. Water treatment methods must combine multiple strategies to be effective, as PF ...

  8. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  9. 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 ...
