  1. 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 ...

  2. Singlet Delta Oxygen Airflow Sterilization for Building Protection


    Direct Energy Solutions proposes to design, fabricate and test a basic prototype decontamination device for building protection from chemical and biological weapons attack and the general enhancement of indoor air quality. The decontamination device generates metastable Singlet Delta Oxygen (SDO), O2 (a1¿), a strong oxidant of biological and chemical pathogens, from direct optical excitation of ...

  3. Biosensor for Field Monitoring of Pesticides in Water


    This SBIR Phase II proposal addresses development of a field-portable, amperometric biosensor for monitoring organophosphorus (OP) and carbamate insecticides in water. The miniaturized biosensor will use a modified screen-printed microelectrode with high sensitivity and lowlimit of detection for OP and carbamate pesticides. This biosensor will be selective for OPs and carbamates. The enzyme use ...

  4. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor


    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago. PCBs are toxic amd suspected to carcinogenic to humans and are therefore carefully monitored. Due to the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of rtansformers containing these chemicals, very specific regulations are ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Finite supplies of increasingly dirty petroleum, climate changes due to carbon dioxide emissions and communities choking in pollution caused by manufacturing as well as their own solid wastes are pressing environmental problems. Because of these problems, sustainability is becoming a leading issue in the plastics industries - disposal options are increasingly limited in major markets such as Cali ...

  8. Improved Sorbent for Removing Mercury from Hazardous Waste Incinerators

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

    TDA Research, Inc., (TDA) is developing a novel non-carbon sorbent to control mercury emissions from flue gas from hazardous waste incinerators and coal-fired power plants. The sorbent could be easily injected into the flue gas and could be recovered in the Particulate Control Device (PCD) along with the fly ash, minimizing capital investment. Unlike the carbon materials used to date, our sorben ...

  9. Sorbents for Desulfurization of Gasoline Blends

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

    Conventionally, deep desulfurization in a refinery is accomplished by a multi-step process including, hydrodesulfurization (HDS) over CoMo/Al203 and NiMo/AL203 catalysts and subsequent removal of the H2S. However, the HDS process is not suited well to produce ultra clean (essentially sulfur free) transportation fuels. At he severe reaction conditions required for deep desulfurization, the olefin ...

  10. 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 ...
