  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services called lead ¿the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.¿ Lead exposure can cause premature birth and impair a child¿s mental and physical development. In adults, lead exposure can cause kidney damage, high blood pressure, and other problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates tha ...

  4. Phytoextractionand Recycling of Arsenic From CCA-Contaminated Soils

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    More than 70 percent of U.S. arsenic consumption¿representing approximately 37 million pounds of arsenic per year¿is used to produce chromated copper arsenate (CCA), a wood preservative. Weathered lumber in decks, docks, playground equipment, and garden construction can leach significant amounts of arsenic into soil and water, where it poses health risks to humans and animals. Effective Decemb ...

  5. Development and Preliminary Validation of an Amphibian Lifecycle Test Method for Monitoring Endocrine Disruption

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns regarding both the presence of endocrine disruptors in food, water, or other environmental media as well as the potential risk they pose to humans and wildlife have been growing in recent years. Passage of the Food Quality Protection Act and Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act reflected these concerns and required the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop a screenin ...

  6. Validation of a Rapid Progestin-Based Endocrine Disruption Screening Assay

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.¿s Phase I research project resulted in the development and standardization of an assay that tests substances that might disturb reproductive and developmental processes in animals by interfering with the endocrine system. The primary goal of the proposed research was to validate and commercialize the Xenopus laevis oocyte maturation germinal vesicle breakdow ...

  7. Evaluation of a Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometer for Analysis of Mobile Source Air Toxics in Engine Exhaust


    Under the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified 21 Mobile Air Source Toxics. Because no truly portable, real-time method exists for the determination of these compounds in engine exhaust, there is an opportunity for the application of portable miniature mass spectrometry coupled with proton transfer reaction ionization (PTR-MMS) to such an analysis. The MMS utili ...

  8. Recycling of Industrial Phosphate Waste as Raw Material for Innovative Iron Phosphate Glass Fibers

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: N/A

    During this Phase I research project, MO-SCI Corporation will develop a method for recycling industrial phosphate waste as a low-cost raw material for innovative iron phosphate glass fibers. Iron and zinc phosphate sludge generated by the automobile, heavy equipment, appliance, fastener, and other industries using metal phosphating processes typically is landfilled. Preliminary work on industria ...

  9. Nanocomposite-Based Filter for Arsenic Removal in Drinking Water

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency¿s (EPA) directive of 10 ppb levels for arsenic in drinking water, there is an urgent need to develop new, simple, and effective treatment systems that can be qualified as best available technologies (BAT) to remove this toxic substance from water. Towards this goal, Materials Modification, Inc. (MMI) proposes to develop a novel arsenic-remo ...

  10. Milestone Mall

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are major changes in today's business methods. Expensive and time consuming travel for gathering project personnel together will be replaced, in part, by network-centric technology. Management directives of large corporations are increasinglystipulating the use of a collaborative workspace environment for their organizations that are non-collocated. In the defense sector, time-to-market of ...
