  2. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    If the QRCFC penetrated just 20% of the truck APU market, it will result in the reduction of over 12,000 tons of NOx, 20160 tons of CO, 544 tons of particulate, and 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions each year. Besides this important application, the QRCFC could also provide similar benefits to military and civilian boat, mobile power and remote power applications. These represent a market of ove ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor


    Polychlorinate biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago. Due to the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of transformers containing these chemicals, very specific regulations are in place which require quantification of PCBs in all transformer oil. The Toxic Substance Cont ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Field Rugged, Portable H2O2 Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR project will develop a field-portable instrument for monitoring and controlling hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration during building decontamination after accidental or purposeful exposure to hazardous biological materials. This product will enable accurate real-time H2O2 measurements over the concentration range of 1-10,000 ppmV. The product is an adaptation of a portable g ...

  10. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Petroleum is finite and as world economies develop it will be increasingly expensive. Consequently, crude oils containing contaminants including mercury and sulfur will be processed. The resulting extensive pollution along with concerns over climate change make it highly desirable to find alternative sources of plastics as a means of pollution prevention. Plastic water bottles in California are ...
