  1. Disposable Test Strips for Ultra-Sensitive Quantification of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Ground Water

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Human exposure to polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has been linked to cancer, elevated cholesterol, obesity, immune suppression and endocrine disruption. The EPA has set a PFOA health advisory of 70 parts-per-trillion. Due to widespread use of PFAS in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) to fight fuel fires, millions of gallons of PFASs have been used at oil refineries, military bases, civil aviation ...

  3. Low cost hyperspectral measurement system to identify harmful materials in construction and demolition (C&D) materials

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 18NCER6A

    Because C&D materials constitute a significant waste stream, increasing the diversion of C&D materials, through recycling and reuse, is identified as an area of need in EPA’s Sustainable materials management (SMM) Program Strategic Plan.Due to lack of technologies to quickly identify constituents, C&D-materials recyclers often dispose of potentially usable materials as a matter of precaution. Th ...

  4. Development of a Non-Toxic Paint Stripper

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER7A

    Paint stripping products are a $360 million per year business in the United States.Currently, the most effective ones rely on Methylene Chloride (MeCl).MeCl is an aggressive solvent that can loosen a coating and make it easily removed in as little as 30 minutes.Unfortunately, MeCl is toxic and dangerous to handle, especially without respiratory protection.MeCl is also harmful to the environment.Th ...

  5. A Green Rooftop System for Commercial Buildings with Superior Energy Efficiency

    SBC: XIMAX Technologies Corporation Ltd            Topic: 17NCER6B

    This proposed project will develop a highly modularized green rooftop system that is not only longlasting but also assemble-able/disassemble-able. At roofs' end-of-life, it can be disassembled and_x000D_ 100% recycled. At buildings' end-of-life, if the roof still has enough useable life, it can be disassembled and reused elsewhere. Major environmental benefits of this technology are 1) nothing fro ...

  6. Inexpensive Formaldehyde Sensor for Indoor Air Quality Application

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Formaldehyde is a reactive and flammable aldehyde which is well known as one of the harmful volatile organic compounds. A_x000D_ combination of respiratory disease, allergic dermatitis and other ailments so called Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is associated with chronic exposure to formaldehyde. Therefore, monitoring for formaldehyde is important in residential buildings. In this Phase I_x000D_ dev ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Innovative Water Desalination System for Small Communities

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER4A

    In many parts of the country groundwater withdrawals exceed recharge rates and this has caused groundwater-level declines, reductions to the volume of groundwater in storage, lower streamflow and lake levels. Development of brackish groundwater and seawater as an alternative water sources can_x000D_ help address concerns about the future availability of water. Thus, there is a need for a technolog ...
