  1. Rapid Field Trace Detection of Perfluoroalkyl Substance in Water

    SBC: 2W ITECH LLC            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Due to increasing concerns over long-term effects of PFOS and PFAS on human body, health based values were set by regulatory authoritative bodies for drinking water standard. Currenty lab-based PFOA and PFOS water tests cost $200-$300 per sample with a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks. In this program, 2W iTech LLC proposes to develop a low-cost fieldable sensing technology for detecting trace amounts ...

  2. Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator to Remove Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances from Water

    SBC: BioLargo, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    This proposal addresses the need for a pre-treatment technology to remove per- and poly- fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from industrial wastewaters. Phase I involves the design, build and testing of a novel technology to remove PFAS from water, termed the Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC). This technology will be tested as an electrical bench-scale device that concentrates PFAS through selec ...

  3. Black Carbon and UV Particulate Matter, Multi-gas, Multi-pollutant Sensor Platform

    SBC: MICROAETH CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER2A

    As forest fires are increasing in prevalence and intensity there is a need for miniaturized, lower cost, and easily portable air sensors that provide information to first responders, public health managers and communities so informed, timely decisions can be made. PM2.5 is an accepted standard for particulate matter (PM) measurements, but PM2.5 mass measurements cannot identify sources without ana ...

  4. Remote Air Quality Reporting (RAQR) Device

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER2A

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking a ground-level air-quality monitoring device to measure wildland fire pollutants including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulates, in a small, easy-to-use unit capable of data storage and data viewing. As more frequent wildfires are expected to occur near populated areas, air-quality monitoring will be more persisten ...

  5. The NODE biosensor: real-time contaminant detection in stormwater

    SBC: Microbiome Engineering, LLC.            Topic: 18NCER4A

    Stormwater management is a growing challenge across the country. Water quality standards are becoming increasingly strict as new regulations are developed at the state level. Meanwhile, changing land use and greater urbanization make meeting these standards even more difficult. Currently, stormwater samples are collected in the field and analyzed in the lab, a process which is time-consuming, cost ...

  6. Ultralow Power Sensor Package for Ground Level Air Pollution Levels from Wildland Fires

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Inc.            Topic: 18NCER2A

    Wild fires produce significant air pollution, posing health risks to first responders, residents in nearby areas, and downwind communities. Wildfires are increasing in size and intensity, and the fire season is growing longer. Technologies for measuring air pollutants, including particulates, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and carbon dioxide, over the wide range of levels expected in areas dow ...

  7. Applying Passive Samplers to Assess Perfluoroalkylated Substances in Soils and Sediments

    SBC: Accurate Environmental LLC            Topic: 17NCER3A

    The presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the environment represents an emerging issue due to their stability, bioaccumulation potential, and risks to human and ecological well-being. There is a critical need to develop sampling methods for PFAS to assess risks and inform remedial investigations and feasibility studies (RI/FS) at locations where historical releases have elevate ...

  8. Development of Innovative Broad-Spectrum Analysis Methods for PFAS

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    This SBIR addresses EPA’s need for improved sampling and analysis technologies to detect Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). PFAS are used in firefighting sprays, at airports, and for wild fires, and have been used in textile treatments (e.g., it is a component in Scotchgard). It is estimated that 65 million Americans are at risk of PFAS exposure in their drinking water. Seacoast propose ...

  9. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 17NCER5A

    Altex’s Renewable Bioplastics Production (RBP) technology meets the Greener Plastic Manufacturing needs; to eliminate harmful-petrochemical feed sources, to accomplish toxic-free, low-energy, low cost bioplastics production, to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, and to have environment friendly-biodegradable bioplastics. Altex’s proposed RBP technology combines a novel feeding-sizing-pret ...

  10. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy. These advances must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $ ...
