  2. Low-Cost Instrument for Long-Term Monitoring of Hazardous Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The EPA has stated a need for technologies and instruments to monitor and warn of the presence of toxic contaminants in drinking water. An innovative device that could detect, identify and localize hazardous chemical contaminants in drinking water would be immensely valuable to water utility operators, emergency response personnel, and other decision-making officials charged with protecting the n ...

  3. Synthetic Gasoline from Biomass


    Clean and renewable liquid fuels from biomass offer reduced new emission of CO2 and less dependence on expensive and unreliable foreign oil. Currently, bioethanol serves in the U.S.A. as bled for gasoline but eventually it could replace gasoline in passenger cars altogether. Ethanol, however, contains only 2/3 of the energy of gasoline on equal volume basis, and if used at high concentration, it ...

  4. Removal of Sulfur From Gasified Coal AT or Above 800 C


    Coal contains substantial sulfur that if not captured when burned, can significantly impact human health, SO2 and SOx emissions are highly regulated. This Small Business Innovation Research proposal presents a novel, proprietary approach for removing sulfur from gasified coal products at gasification temperatures. The approach is based upon the use of sulfide ion conducting metal sulfides. At h ...

  5. Wireless Electrochemical ClO2 Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified the need for an accurate and field-rugged instrument to monitor Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. The proposed Phase I study will evaluate the feasibility of designing and fabricating an advanced electrochemical ClO2 sensor, utilizing integrated solid polymer electrolyte proton-conduct ...

  6. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    Because of the relatively high cost of biomass feedstocks compared to fossil fuels, biomass conversion processes must be highly efficient in order to provide a new-term contribution to the U.S. energy balance. Biodiesel is recognized as an important potential fuel, which is obtained by relatively simple esterification of fats or seed oils (soybean, rapeseed, etc.). In the manufacture of biodiese ...

  7. Reduced NOx Using On-Board Plasma Generated Hydrogen

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Off road diesel powered equipment (i.e., tractors, dozers, excavators, backhoes, surface equipment, etc.) are designed with lifetimes of more the 25 to 30 years. As such, most of the diesel equipment in use today were manufactured before there were any emission standards at all, much less are up to stringent requirements of modern vehicle emissions. In order to combat this massive source of poll ...

  8. An Inexpensive Biological and Chemical Decontamination Solution from a Powdered Concentrate

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    All levels of government and law enforcement are making plans to contain the effects of a terrorist attach using CBW agents. An important containment strategy is to enable emergency response personnel (police, fire fighters, etc.) to neutralize the threat using decontamination methods. The two primary decontamination solutions used by the military are supertropical bleach and DS2, neither of whi ...

  9. Handheld FRET Aptamer Sensor to Satisy the Beaches Act

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the ultrasensitivity of fluorescence-based detection with the high affinity and selectivity of DNA aptamers as improved replacements for antibodies to detect fecal indicator organisms in fresh and marine recreational waters. Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) aptamer assays for fecal indicator organisms will be demonstrat ...

  10. Hot Fuel-Gas Sorben System

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

    Technical Abstract: Coal is a major source of both electricity production and greenhouse gases (i.e., carbon dioxide, CO2). To minimize the effect on the environment, CO2 capture is required; but previous capture technologies have been both inefficient and expensive. Coal Gasification can produce a CO2 rich gas at high temperature and pressure. Removing the CO2 at high temperature and pressure ...
