  1. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    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 logisticalsystem requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities,product storage tanks and Jots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermitte ...

  2. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  3. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-Organic Frameworks-Based Pretreatment Technology for the Remediation of PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    Per- and polyflouralkyl substances, otherwise known as PFAS, are a large group of chemicals including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). These chemicals have a large variety of uses globally. Remediation of PFAS has gained importance due to their environmental persistence and toxicity. Water treatment methods must combine multiple strategies to be effective, as PF ...

  4. AirQAST Portable Automated Air Quality Monitoring

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 18NCER2A

    Assessment of wild land fire smoke exposure is a genuine concern to fire managers, public health officials, air quality regulators, and the public. Exposure to vegetation fire smoke products poses acute and chronic health hazards to first line responders, firefighters, and to communities located downwind of their source. Current instrumentation capable of providing reliable air quality data is exp ...

  5. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  6. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  7. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  8. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A Retrofit and Low-Cost Small Industrial Boiler Flue Gas Purification Technology

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: 04NCERB1

    This novel technology can simultaneously remove particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO X), and mercury (Hg) from the flue gases of oil and coal-fired small industrial boilers. The technology uses ozone to oxidize NO into high oxides, and applies an innovative catalytic sorbent material to convert high nitrogen oxides and SO2 into nitric acid an ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. NEW TRANSIT MARKETS FOR COMPETITIVE PROCUREMENT

    SBC: Dean P Bell & Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN UNPRECEDENTED PUBLIC SECTOR/PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP AMONG PRIVATE BUS OPERATORS, VISITOR AND CONVENTION BUREAUS (C&VB) AND PUBLIC TRANSIT AGENCIES TO MEET THE GROWING TRANSPORTATION NEEDS OF THE MEETING MARKET (E.G., CONVENTIONS AND CORPORATE MEETINGS). THIS WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A FIXED-ROUTE SHUTTLE SERVICE BETWEEN HOTELS AND CONVENTION ...
