  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. 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 ...

  4. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  5. Retrofitting Diesel Electrical Generators for Emission Reduction

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

    Diesel generator sets (gen-sets) are used routinely to supply electrical power. Hospitals, businesses, and small communities use gen-sets to help reduce costs by load leveling and provide emergency power during blackouts (either scheduled or unscheduled). Recent power outages in California have led to large increases in the purchase of gen-sets, primarily for providing emergency power. In addit ...

  6. Wet-Vacuum Sampler For Surface Biocontamination Detection

    SBC: ROCKY MOUNTAIN RESOURCE LABS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Higher efficiency collection of surface biocontamination with a novel wet-vacuum Microbial-VacT (M-Vac) system will improve speed and accuracy of pathogen detection. Field-portable systems will be designed and tested for practical coupling with RapidCulture Detection (RCD) for field screening of presumptive positives and confirmation with PCR or Solid Phase Laser Cytometry (SPLC). Phase I R&D dem ...

  7. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Reversible Heat Pump System

    SBC: WHITEMOSS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is to design, model and demonstrate the feasibility of, a reversible CO2 heat pump system, including an advanced compressor design, which meets military requirements for a 3-ton capacityEnvironmental Control Unit. The CO2 system will utilize state-of-the-art system components and computer modeling plus a novel compressor, capable of both va ...

  8. Embedded UV Combustion Sensor

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop gallium phosphide (GaP) ultraviolet (UV) sensors for engine combustion control. The UV spectra from the free radial combustion components correlates with combustion effectivity in terms of predetonation, and provides a real time basis for central control of excess air ratio, internal combustion temperatures, and other fuel injector parameters. A system for the engine ...

  9. Oxygen Enriching Membranes for Advanced Marine Internal Combustion Engines

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

    Computer and engine studies demonstrated a 100% increase in diesel engine power with the use of 31% oxygen enriched air (OEA) versus standard 21% oxygen air. Additional benefits from OEA include: (1) improved fuel efficiency, (2) compatible with lower grade (volatility) fuels, (3) reduced CO and hydrocarbon emissions, (4) enhanced lean burn capability, (5) smoother less noisy operation, (6) better ...

  10. Metallic Ion Removal via Neutral Presipitation and Cross Flow MicroFiltration

    SBC: Environmental R & D, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to determine the chemical operating parameters and control parameters required to design a Neutral Precipitation/Cross Flow MicroFiltration wastewater treatment unit for removal of heavy metals from wastewater generated in the metal finishing operations generated at Department of Defense arsenals and depots. The proposed wastewater treatment process would permit t ...
