  1. Small Scale Ethanol Drying

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

    This program exceeded all key milestones. Using cellulose Waste, CMS demonstrated novel ethanol drying membranes via small scale dephlegmation process that yields fuel grade ethanol (FGE) at a lower cost than large switch grass ethanol plants. This success yields positive value for cellulose waste. We achieved targeted EPA goals of developing low cost environmentally friendly systems to enhance re ...

  3. Replacements for PVC and PE Water Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: 17NCER1C

    METSS proposes to design a novel polymer system based on polypropylene with covalently attached antioxidants to mitigate issues with chemical permeation and water quality with current waterpipe materials. Polypropylene was selected as it has inherently good physical properties and low permeability that will limit chemical migration from the outside, addressing one critical factor impacting water q ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Decontamination of Category A Viruses on Porous Surfaces and Sensitive Equipment

    SBC: MATERIALS ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES CORP.            Topic: 17NCER4A

    METSS will demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing two separate technologies, chlorine dioxide (ClO2) and Hot Air Decontamination (HAD; high temperature/low humidity) as on-site decontamination processes for treating_x000D_ Category A virus contaminated items including porous materials (e.g., upholstery, bedding, fabric, carpet, unpainted wood); sensitive equipment; and potentially reusable mater ...

  6. Automatically Guiding Interviews By Commonsense Abductive Principles

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A07116

    Significant challenges exist related to smartly interviewing multiple people to assess eyewitness accounts and judge how truthful a source is. Aetion proposes applying a powerful form of inference called abduction to help intelligently interview multiple people and compare their corresponding answers to judge the reliability of a source. Abductive inference, or "inference to best explanation," has ...

  7. Malaria Diagnostic Methods to Replace Microscopy in Clinical Trials

    SBC: AKRON RUBBER DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY,INCORPORATED            Topic: A08118

    Developing a robust and accurate test for the detection of malaria continues to be an elusive challenge.1,2 The objective of this proposal is to develop an innovative approach to the diagnosis of malaria that is very specific and sensitive for detecting the presence of malaria parasites in red blood cells (RBC). This approach could potentially be more effective than the current microscopic and r ...

  8. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  9. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  10. Innovative Tantalum Machining for Weapon Applications

    SBC: ARES, INC.            Topic: A08044

    Gun barrel bores have been traditionally plated with chromium to reduce erosion and increase service life. However, the chrome electro deposition process generates hazardous waste and the DoD has been moving to eliminating its use. Liners made from Tantalum – tungsten (Ta-W) alloys have been shown to be an acceptable substitute. These alloys have a high melting temperature, are more eros ...
