  1. A Sensitive and Affordable Compact Ammonia Monitor

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

    Ammonia has an important role in the chemistry of the atmospheric environment and air quality. Ammonia emissions are a major environmental concern, yet they remain poorly quantified. There is a need for a sensitive ammonia instrument to monitor emissions and evaluate their effects on the local and regional environments. An instrument capable of continuous monitoring is required to understand diurn ...

  2. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared (IR) imaging is the best method for detecting leaks of pollutant gases, but current technology based on cooled IR imagers is far too expensive ($75,000 to $150,000) for everyday field use by those who need it to meet regulatory limits¿electric and petrochemical utilities, manufacturing plants, and businesses such as supermarkets. Agiltron will demonstrate a new class of IR imager instrum ...

  3. Security Monitoring Using Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Clean drinking water is a critical component of the United States infrastructure and is therefore a potential target for terrorists. In addition to physical attacks to the water network including dams, pumping stations and pipelines, there must be vigilance to prevent the water itself from being fouled through the addition of toxic/hazardous chemicals. It is virtually impossible to protect every r ...

  4. Electrochemical Treatment and Recycling of Spent Perchlorate-Contaminated Ion-Exchange Regeneraton Brime

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Eltron Research & Development, Inc. (Eltron) proposes to develop an ion-selective, polymer membrane electrode capable of detecting perchlorate in water at low parts per billion (ppb) concentrations. With the discovery of perchlorate contamination in an increasing number of drinking water sources and an increase in regulation of perchlorate in drinking water, some wells are shut down because no cos ...

  5. Low Cost NOx Abatement in Off-Road Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Nitrogen oxides (NOx) contribute to the formation of ground level ozone, aerosols, and acid rain. Considerable progress has been made in reducing emissions from stationary and highway sources. New emissions standards will require that new off-road (non-road) diesel engines achieve emissions of NOx and other species comparable to those from on-road sources. Currently, there are no inexpensive, effe ...

  6. Decontamination Wipes for First Responders

    SBC: Entropic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of chemical or biological (CB) attack is real, and there is a recognized need for improved technologies to better respond to these situations. During a CB emergency, first responder units are critical for handling the emergency, and then restoring the environment where it occurred. After a threat has been contained, the first responders, donned in protective gear, must decontaminate the ...

  7. Wireless Electrochemical ClO2 Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recognizing the importance of ClO2 in disinfection and decontamination operations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had identified the need for portable, accurate and field-rugged chlorine dioxide (ClO2) monitors for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. To address the EPA's concern and need, this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will contin ...

  8. Surface Plasma Electrode for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Johansson Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic precipitators are widely used for the removal of particulate matter from boiler exhaust gases. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgation of National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters will require industry to install many new high-performance precipitators on such sourc ...

  9. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this project is to complete the research and development of an innovative process technology to enhance the economics of biodiesel production, through upgrading the byproduct glycerol to a propane fuel (LPG), which (a) is widely used today, (b) has an existing distribution system, (c) can accommodate the large volumes of byproduct glycerol, and (d) which has attractive economic ...

  10. Inexpensive Drinking Water Chlorination Unit for Small Communities

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 250 drinking water systems exist for small communities in Puerto Rico that serve between 25 and 500 individuals. These water systems fall outside of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and, thus, have insufficient water treatment systems or no water treatment systems. Water sources for these communities are from groundwater and surface water with flow rates up to 50,000 gallons ...
