  1. PM 2.5 Emissions Reduction for Two-Stroke Engines

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicG

    Small particulate emissions, such as those that fall within the PM2.5 classification, have a substantial negative effect on air quality and human health. Significant sources of PM2.5 emissions are small two-stroke engines that are used in outdoor power equipment such as leaf blowers, chain saws, and string trimmers, as well as larger two-stroke engines used in recreational vehicles such as all-ter ...

  2. Low-Cost Retrofit Emissions Control in Off-Road Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: TopicH

    Considerable progress has been made in reducing emissions from stationary and highway sources. However, new emission standards require that new off-road (non-road) diesel engines achieve emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other species comparable to those from on-road sources. Additionally, biofuel (e.g., biodiesel) powered vehicles offer the potential for increased NOx emissions. There are cu ...

  3. Compact High Resolution Electrospray Ionization Ion Mobility Spectrometer for Online Water Monitoring

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: TopicJ

    Among 12 classes of water contaminants grouped in EPA’s WaterSentinel Initiative (WS-CWS detection classes, USEPA 2005c), online detection of toxic industrial chemicals (TIC) and chemical warfare agents (CWA) remains one of the major challenges. This project involves an electrospray ionization-high resolution ion mobility spectrometer (ESI-HRIMS) system that is suitable for detecting CWAs, t ...

  4. Bio-Electrochemical Systems for Ethanol Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: TopicH

    Ethanol production for use as biofuel, which will grow to 166 billion liters worldwide by 2020, produces 3-5 liters of waste for every liter of ethanol. This waste contains significant amounts of stillage that is high in both total suspended solids (TSS) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), requiring significant processing for remediation. Current treatment options such as aerobic and anaerobic diges ...

  5. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicI

    Hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) is an effective and well studied decontaminant for vehicles and buildings contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials. Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 weight percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department of Transportation (DOT) as b ...

  6. Thermochemical Biofuels Production from Biomass Waste Materials

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting biomass waste into diesel fuel. The diesel made from biomass will be a direct substitute for ultra low-sulfur diesel (defined by ASTM D 975). The biomass waste will first be converted into pyrolysis oil and then upgraded to diesel. The process uses a new approach to upgrading pyrolysis bio oil and does not produce excessive by-pro ...

  7. Reduction of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Commercial Kitchens

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: TopicG

    Particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from commercial cooking establishments are a subject of increasing concern around the world. Although increased awareness of the health hazards of respirable particulates and VOCs has promoted the development of new technologies to reduce emissions from restaurants, current technologies do not remove all hazardous air pollutants ...

  8. Advanced Mixed Oxidation and Inclusion Technology

    SBC: ENCHEM ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: TopicI

    Coal tar contaminants, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) currently are difficult to treat in a timely and cost-efficient manner. The generally poor performance of conventional PAH treatment schemes, such as soil flushing or bioremediation, has led to research application of innovative in situ remediation methods. This project focuses on the in situ destruction of recalcitrant coal tar ...

  9. Combined Gas and Particle Measurement System

    SBC: AIR QUALITY DESIGN INC.            Topic: TopicG

    Real-time measurements of particle species, including NO3-, NH4+, and SO4=, are needed at multiple locations in and beyond the NCORE network to understand pollutant fluxes and dynamics of PM2.5, and to constrain atmospheric models. Existing methods have proved problematic for widespread autonomous deployment creating, an opportunity for development of a reliable, autonomous approach. The innovatio ...
