  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Nanostructured Carbon Based Capacitive Desalination

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 16NCER4A

    Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a robust, energy efficient, and cost effective technology for water desalination. In collaboration with Dr. Satish Kumar and Dr. Costas Tsouris at Georgia Tech, we are developing nanostructured carbon material for effective and economical water and wastewater desalination. Our new approach for CDI is enabled by (1) synthesis of nanostructured high surface area acti ...

  4. INSTRUMENT FOR MONITORING FINE, RESPIRABLE PARTICULATE MATTER IN FLUE GASES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The flue gases of combustion-type power plants contain small, respirable ash andfume particles which originate from the inorganic species in the fuel. Coalburning power plants, for example, have a notorious reputation for spewing outflue gas particles originating from the mineral mater in the coal. These fluegas particles (10 microns in diameter) must be characterized for two reasons:1) to deter ...

  5. A NITROGEN DIOXIDE MONITOR BASED ON NONDISPERSIVE VISIBLE OPTICAL DETECTION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The problem addressed in this project is the need to monitor oxides of nitrogen(NOx, ie NO and NO2) levels in the combustion gases of stationary sources suchas power plants in order to facilitate on-line control of the scrubbers that willbe used to remove those pollutants. Since the measurements are in the parts permillion range, simpler and less expensive instruments than those currently used,su ...

  6. AN ADVANCED FLUE GAS MONITOR FOR SO2

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of an instrument for continuously monitoring SO2 levels in fluegas is proposed. The SO2 will be detected by means of an electrochemical sensorcell, which operates in a three-electrode potentiostatic mode. The proposedinnovation is develop-ment of an advance sensor cell which uses a high-temperature solid polymer eleobjectives of the proposed program are 1) identification of poten ...

  7. NOVEL SORBENTS FOR SORPTION AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER

    SBC: ICET, INC            Topic: N/A

    An efficient method for directly removing chromate and metals such as nickel,zinc, cadmium, mercury, cobalt, chromium(III), lead in two separate stages isproposed. The highly capacity sorbents could be regenerated, recovering thechromate and other metals separately. The regeneration is expected to beefficient and is simply based on changing the pH from one extreme to another.Bench scale characte ...

  8. TRACE HEAVY METAL REMOVAL FROM DRINKING WATER

    SBC: ICET, INC            Topic: N/A

    New ideas are presented on the covalent attachment of chelating functionalitiesto novel, highly hydrophilic sobent material, which can then complex heavy metalions irreversibly and is targeted toward lead removal. The efficient removal ofother heavy metals, such as cadmium, chromium, mercury, zinc, nickel, cobalt, andcooper are anticipated. The covalent attached ligands are expected to be stable ...

  9. PHOTOCATALYTIC AIR POLLUTION CONTROL TECHNOLOGY FOR DILUTE VOC/TAP DESTRUCTION

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    Technology is needed for control of emissions of volatile organic compounds(VOC's) and toxic air pollutants (TAP's) from stationary sources. A particularneed exists for emissions control of industrial processes, where diluteconcentrations of VOC's are present in high flows of offgas which may alsocontain submicron particles.The proposed research project is to establish the technical and economicf ...
