  1. Advanced Contaminant Inactivation System for Drinking Water

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: E

    "The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small ...

  2. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    "OPTRA proposes a Fourier transform phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (FT-PS-CRDS) system for high sensitivity detection of air toxic compounds. Our system operates in the 400-4000 cm-1 spectral range wherein lie vapor phase resonance bands for most air toxic compounds and hazardous chemicals; the spectral resolution is 4-16 cm-1, depending on the discrimination requirements. Our approac ...

  3. A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: I

    "Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. This widespread nitrate contamination has led to significant environmental consequences. In particul ...

  4. Reduction of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Commercial Kitchens

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

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

  5. Energy Efficient Ethanol Stillage Treatment using a Bio-Electrochemical System

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing energy and water intensity of fuel-ethanol production is a critical national need, particularly if we are to realize the renewable fuel standards of 2010 mandating 36 million gallons of renewable fuels by 2022. Because the ethanol tolerance of yeasts used in commercial cellulosic ethanol production is around 7-9% by volume, 10-14 gallons of stillage are created for every gallon of ethano ...

  6. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-polymer) Battery Safety

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated that electroactive polymer coatings (EAP) may be applied to the surface of the cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to protect against catastrophic cell failure. These EAP coatings form an electrochemical"switch"that can prevent catastrophic failure in lithium-ion batteries by reversibly changing from a conductor to an insulator on overdischarg ...

  7. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  8. FEASIBILITY OF COAL TAR BIODEGRADATION BY COMPOSTING

    SBC: Cambridge Analytical Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED BETWEEN 1880 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF THIS MATERIAL WERE LAND-DISPOSED AT OVER 1500 SITES IN THE UNITED STATES. THE TAR CONTAINS SEVENTEEN POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAH) WHICH HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE EPA PRIORITY POLLUTION LIST AS A RESULT OF THEIR MUTAGENICI ...

  9. OPTIMIZING THE DESIGN OF CARBON TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Environmental Eng & Tech P C            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING WATER TREATMENT PLANTS ARE NOT VERY EFFECTIVE FOR THE REMOVAL OF A GROWING LIST OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS THAT POLLUTE OUR WATERS. ONE TREATMENT TECHNIQUE THAT IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE FOR ORGANIC REMOVAL IS ADSORPTION ON GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON (GAC). COST HAS BEEN A MAJOR OBSTACLE TO EXPANDING THE USE OF GAC TREATMENT AND ADSORPTION SYSTEMS WHICH MUST BE OPTIMIZED IF THEY ARE TO PROVIDE COST EF ...

  10. FLUORINE PLASMA MODIFICATION OF FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS

    SBC: Tekmat Corp            Topic: N/A

    GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION IS AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT CONCERN. THIS RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH PREVENTING CONTAMINATION BY IMPROVING THE DESIGN OF POLYMER LINERS USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF WASTE DISPOSAL CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS. POLYMERS CURRENTLY USED FOR FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS WILL BE TREATED WITH A FLUORINE GAS PLASMA TO MODIFY THEIR FURFACES. THE NOVEL MATERIALS PRODUCED ...
