  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 ...

  5. TOTAL OXIDATION OF CONTAMINATED LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS OVER AEROGEL CATALYSTS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROJECT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF A CATALYTIC OXIDATION OF CONTAMINANT LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS USING NOVEL AEROGEL CATALYSTS.THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE PROPOSED CATALYTIC COMBUSTION PROCESS IS THAT IT CAN OPERATE AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE THAN THE CONVENTIONAL INCINERATORS THUS CONTROLLING NOX EMISSIONS. IT WILL ALSO BE MORE EFFICIENT IN OBTAINING VIRTU ...

  7. DETERMINATION OF SOLIDS RESIDENCE TIME DISTRIBUTION IN CONTINUOUSLY FED, SHALLOW FLUIDIZED BEDS: TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FUEL EFFICIENT CONTAMINATED SOILS INCINERATOR

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SOILS CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS POSE A THREAT TO THEENVIRONMENT, IN THAT THE CHEMICALS MAY BE SLOWLY RELEASED AND INCORPORATED INTO THE FOOD CHAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURE, THERMAL OXIDATION OFFERS ONE METHOD OF DECONTAMINATING THESESOILS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THE NORMALLY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS ABSORBED ON SOILS, FUEL IS REQUIRED TO HEAT THE SOIL MASS TO TEMPERATURES NEAR 2,000 F. CUR ...

  8. CATALYTICALLY STABILIZED THERMAL INCINERATION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A STAGED FLUID BED CONTACTOR FOR THE ECONOMIC THERMAL DESTRUCTION OF TOXIC CHEMICALS ON SOILS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS, IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS. IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS MUST BE RELOCATED AND MANY ACRE-FEET OF SOIL MUST BE EXCAVA-TED AND TREATED OR STORED IN "SAFE" STORAGE FACILITIES. IM-PROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE CLEAN-UP CO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL USING THE ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS

    SBC: Energy Sciences Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS WILL BE INVESTI- GATED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DESTROY TOXIC MOLECULES SUCH AS DIOXINS, FURANS, AND POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCAR- CARBONS PRODUCED, FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. SOME ISOMERS OF THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC; THEREFORE,THE WORK WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING NON-TOXIC MODEL COMPOUNDS EXHIBITING CHEMICAL FUNC ...
