  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. 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 $ ...

  5. A GREEN AND UNIQUE THERMOSETTING-THERMOPLASTIC POLYCARBONATE

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 16NCER2B

    Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced per year most will require 500 years to biodegrade. Currently only 9% is recycled, and 50 million tons of thermoset plastic produced annually that can't be recycled. _x000D_ _x000D_ This project will develop a sustainable and easily biodegradable polycarbonate plastic that is uniquely a recyclable thermoset resin. We call it a thermosetting thermoplastic ...

  6. Membrane Process for solvent Reclamation and Reuse

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: C

    Many commercial hydrophilic solvents form azeotropes or have vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) pinch points with water, which making solvent recovery by conventional distillation difficult. Solvents that form such azeotropes or have such pinch points include isopropyl alcohol (IPA), acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), ethyl acetate, ethanol, butanol and tetrahydrofuran. Molecular sieve drying is p ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Ultra-Sensitive Detection of Air Toxics Using Incoherent Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: G

    In this SBIR Phase I effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to design, build and test a novel Incoherent Cavity Ring Dow Spectroscopy (iCRDS) gas analyzer operating I the mid-infrared (MIR) region for the continuous, real-time, on-site detection of multiple air toxics in ambient air. Specific applications include EPA priorities such as: air quality monitoring at remediation sites, vapor intrus ...

  8. Enhanced Drying of Pipeline Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H

    There continues to be a need for low cost production and shipment of fuel-grade ethanol from agricultural sources. Ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages including developing fuel independence and significantly reducing greenhouse gases. Also, bio-ethanol has significant value as an oxygenated and octane improver. Although ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages, th ...

  9. Fiber Optic Distributed Chemical Sensors for Environmental Impact Monitoring in Carbon Sequestration

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: F

    Technical and economical assessments suggest that over the next century the capture and storage of carbon dioxide in deep reservoirs (CCS) may contribute up to 20% of CO2-emission reductions. Reliable and cost-effective monitoring is required to demonstrate that CCS is safe, does not create adverse environmental impacts, and is an effective technology to control CO2 emissions. To meet this goal, ...

  10. Highly Efficient Water Management System for Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: H

    Life cycle analysis of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass combined with carbon capture has shown the potential to produce negative greenhouse gas emissions. More than a billion dry tons of freshly harvested lignocellulostic biomass is available at moisture contents between 20 and 60%. This material could be used for the sustainable production of biofuels. However, it is a challenge ...
