  1. 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 ...

  9. An Inexpensive Hand-Held Monitor for Measuring Fugitive Methane Emissions

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 16NCER1B

    Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted after carbon dioxide, however, on a pound-to-pound comparison methane has a 25 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Accordingly, the 2014 Climate Action Plan signed by President Obama has directed agencies including the USDA, DOE, and EPA to reduce methane emissions. A significant effort in th ...
