  1. 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 ...

  2. Nanoparticle Based Lateral Flow Microarray Test Strip Assay

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nanoparticles exhibit unique optical properties that can be exploited in the development of highly sensitive assay systems. This proposal describes the development of a lateral flow test strip microarray that will utilize nanoparticles amplification to detect waterborne pathogens. Waterborne pathogens have been chosen for this study, because they can cause severe illness, and even death, and the ...

  3. Biodegradable Thermoplastic Natural Fiber Composite

    SBC: Li, Yan D.B.A.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Phase I project aims at developing low-cost and fully biodegradable composites based on plant fibers and a thermoplastic lignin resin. The lignin resin will be based on chemically modified industrial byproduct lignins and will be specially formulated to obtain suitable tensile and shear strengths. It will be mace compatible with plant fibers and thus afford good fi ...

  4. Membrane Preconcentrator for Portable Trace VOC Detectors

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A volatile organic compound (VOC) detection system that is portable, sensitive to the low-ppb level, and able to provide reliable measurements in real time is needed for environmental compliance monitoring and process control in chemical plants. Recently, handheld and battery-powered ppb-level VOC photoionization detectors (PID) have become commercially available. However, the presence of water ...

  5. Nanocrystalline Materials for Removal of Reduced Sulfur and Nitrogen Compounds from Fuel Gas

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Integrated gasification combined cycle, or IGCC, which uses a gasifier to convert coal to fuel gas, and then uses combined cycle power block to generate electricity, is one of the most promising technologies to meet the challenge of generating electricity from coal in an environmentally sustainable way. IGCC has many advantages over traditional technologies including higher efficiency, lower poll ...
