  3. Graded Interference Filter Spectrometer

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

    The release of volatile organic compounds from industrial processes can have negative impacts on the environment while also posing significant health and safety concerns. In the environment, many of these chemical are considered precursors to ground-level ozone, which is the primary component of smog. In addition, many volatile organic compounds are cancer-causing in humans while others pose dan ...

  4. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    If the QRCFC penetrated just 20% of the truck APU market, it will result in the reduction of over 12,000 tons of NOx, 20160 tons of CO, 544 tons of particulate, and 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions each year. Besides this important application, the QRCFC could also provide similar benefits to military and civilian boat, mobile power and remote power applications. These represent a market of ove ...

  5. Low-Cost Instrument for Long-Term Monitoring of Hazardous Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The EPA has stated a need for technologies and instruments to monitor and warn of the presence of toxic contaminants in drinking water. An innovative device that could detect, identify and localize hazardous chemical contaminants in drinking water would be immensely valuable to water utility operators, emergency response personnel, and other decision-making officials charged with protecting the n ...

  6. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are over 480,000 trucks on US roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs or CO, 11 lbs of particulates and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year, when idling, and producing auxiliary power needed for the drivers comfort. A Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU) is proposed to significantly reduce these emissions. The QRCFC overcomes challenges with current ...

  7. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use on inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional ...

  8. Rapid Indicator for Pollution

    SBC: CEDAR Systems            Topic: N/A

    CEDAR Systems responds to the EPAs need for an inexpensive, convenient and rapid analytical method for the detection of pollution indicators for such as E. coli and enterococci in beach and other recreational waters as a means of identifying risk before exposure has taken place. Currently available tests are far from ideal in that they all require significant incubation periods (i.e. 18+ hours) t ...

  9. Small Scale Ethanol Drying


    There continues to be a need for production of fuel-grade ethanol from agricultural sources. The Federal Government is actively looking for biomass renewable feed stocks for enhancing gasoline and reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages including development of fuel independence, and ethanol has significant value as an oxygenate and octane im ...

  10. Feasibility of Monitoring Heavy Metal Emissions from a Coal-Fired Thermal Hazardous Waste Incinerator Using a Multi-Metal Continuous Emissions Monitor

    SBC: Cooper Environmental Services, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Under current Hazardous Waste Combustor Maximum Achievable Control Technology rule, heavy metal emissions from the nations thermal hazardous waste combustion facilities are estimated using control efficiencies determined during performance testing and estimated metal feed rates during normal operation. The error in estimates of metal emissions from this approach can be on the order of 100% or mor ...
