  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. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  3. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  4. 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, their ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Next Generation in Detection Materials Processing

    SBC: Neotron Inc            Topic: DTRA092007

    Three nuclides are especially useful in detecting thermalized neutrons: helium-3, lithium-6 , and boron-10. Since current demand will deplete reserves of helium-3 in roughly two years, there is a large desire to develop detectors that have the capacity to replace helium-3 tubes. In this proposal we spell out our plan to adapt Neotron''s already developed fission neutron detector into a high effic ...
