  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. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...

  5. On-Line, Near Real Time Water Security BioMonitoring System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an innovative biosensor system for near real time, on-line monitoring of water for the presence of pathogens and biotoxins. The proposed optical biosensing approach possesses a unique combination of features that make it ideal for meeting the requirements of a water analysis system. Notably. 1) it does not require the use of labels for detection (such as fluorescent, enzym ...

  6. A TEQ Based Dioxin Kit Utilizing Fluorescent Aptmers

    SBC: Eno River Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Eno River Labs, LLC proposes to develop and on-site testing kit for dioxins that uses fluorescently tagged ssDNA aptamers for selective binding and subsequent screening/quantitative analysis of dioxin in soil sample. Current dioxin field test kits are immunoassay based, which are insufficiently specific and sometimes unreliable. Therefore, reliable dioxin testing requires laboratory tests, which ...

  7. Hazardous Waste Management Using a New Sparker Process

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity of this proposal is to develop a new ¿Sparker¿ process for treating organic hazardous contaminants in water and liquid waste, including persistent and bioaccumulative and toxic chemical (PBT¿s), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH¿s). Sparker technology also has potential for in-situ treatment of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL¿s) and sludge. Sparkers ...

  8. Field Rugged, Portable H2O2 Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will support the development of a field-portable instrument for monitoring and controlling hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration during building decontamination after accidental or purposeful exposure to hazardous biological materials. The goal of Phases I through III is to develop a product that enables accurate real-time H2O2 measurements over the concentration range of 1-10, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Novel Polymeric Building Decontamination Technologies

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX has previously evaluated the efficacy of polymeric materials in the removal of chemical and biological agents form surfaces. The system previously evaluated showed better than 2-log removal of simulants for both chemical and biological agents. TIAX is proposing under this SBIR proposal to significantly broaden the scope of the technology through application of proprietary systems to demon ...

  10. Low-Cost, Mercury-Free Electirial Switches and Relays

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mercury is a toxic, volatile metal that is used in electrical switches, relays and motion detectors because of its electrical conductivity, low volatility and fluid properties over a large temperature range. Mercury is released into the atmosphere during incineration of trash containing these discarded items and rapidly migrates to the aquatic environment were it is ingested by fish, presenting a ...
