  1. Cryptosporidium Detection System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I objective is to develop a compact, low-cost, easy-to-use system for the rapid detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts. Two key innovations provide the foundation for Ciencia, Inc.'s system: (1) a dielectrophoretic field-flow-fractionation method to replace current filtering and centrifugation methods to concentrate the sample and remove nontarget organisms or nonbiological debris, and (2) ...

  2. MTBE Removal from Drinking Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The 1990 Federal Clean Air Act mandated the incorporation of oxygenates into gasoline in ozone and carbon monoxide nonattainment areas. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is the oxygenate of choice due to economic and supply considerations. Despite federal and state programs to improve handling of gasoline and other fuels in pipelines, underground and above-ground storage tanks, and other transpor ...

  3. High Lubricity Coatings for High Pressure Fuel Pumps

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: N/A

    Direct-injection (DI) fuel pumps operate on petroleum-based hydrocarbons that have inherent lubricating properties. DI fuel pumps that inject clean-burning liquid fuels with no lubricating properties (such as methanol or dimethyl ether) induce a major wear problem at the interface of the plunger and cylinder wall. Addition of a sacrificial liquid lubricant to reduce this wear would defeat the obje ...

  4. An Electroanalytical Alumina Sensor for Use in Aluminum Production

    SBC: Oxley Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Improved control of dissolved alumina concentration in the molten cryolite of Hall-Heroult cells is an important need in the aluminum smelting industry. A major incentive is avoiding "anode effect" that occurs when the cryolite bath's alumina content becomes too low (e.g., less than 2.2 w/o) to support normal electrolysis. Anode effect reflects production and accumulation of perfluorocarbons at th ...

  5. Exhaust Gas Monitoring for Process Control and Pollution Reduction in Semiconductor Manufacturing

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), known greenhouse gases, are used widely in semiconductor manufacturing. Several options for reducing the emissions of PFCs are being considered, including: (1) optimizing the process; (2) reducing the nonproduction operation of the fabrication tool; (3) recovering and recycling the unused PFCs; (4) using alternative etch gases; and (5) postprocess abatement (combustion). T ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Combinatorial Synthesis and Screening of Sensing Nanomaterial for Warfare Agents

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

    The overall goal of the proposed program is to provide military personnel with a hand-held analyzer capable of detecting chemical and biological agents, as well as toxic industrial chemicals. This will be accomplished through the use of a newnanocomposite material (metal-doped sol-gel) that enhances analyte specific Raman signals sufficiently to allow identifying and quantifying agents at relevan ...

  8. Gun Launched Guided Projectile

    SBC: AZTECH ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Ensuring U.S. technological superiority over potential adversaries through the use of emerging technologies to improve warfighter lethality, survivability, and mobility is central in the effort to maintain effective fighting forces.Conventional medium caliber projectiles fall short of desired effectiveness due to many physical and environmental factors such as aiming inaccuracy, component manufact ...
