  1. Development of Real-Time Flare Combustion Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: Providence Photonics, LLC            Topic: E

    There are approximately 7,000 flares in operation at industrial facilities across the U.S. Flares are one of the largest Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and air toxics emissions sources. Based on a special emission inventory required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in 2007, highly reactive VOC emissions from 28 flares located in 11 facilities in Harris County, Texas, where 1,46 ...

  2. Solid State Sensor System for Inspection of Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A

    An important type of water pipe is the Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP). There are thousands of miles of PCCP installed in the US in sections with length up to 20 feet and diameter for 2 to 14 feet. The large size of the pipes, the thickness of the concrete (up to 10 inches) and the composite construction, which involved concrete, high strength prestressing steel wires and sheet steel c ...

  3. A Low-Cost Rare Earth Elements Recovery Technology

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: B

    Physical Sciences Inc. and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research propose to develop a unique enabling technology to significantly reduce U.S. dependency for Rare Earth Elements (REE) on foreign suppliers and our global competitors. Our innovation is a process that utilizes very inexpensive and abundant domestic raw materials for high-yield and low-cost generation of REE in ...

  4. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    We propose to develop anew monitor that provides composition information of particles in the ultrafine (10-100 nm) fine (100 nm– 2.5 µm) and coarse (2.5 – 10 µm) size modes in near real time. Particle monitoring technologies are important for better characterization of the environmental, health and visibility effects of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosol particles. Current monitoring t ...

  5. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, VOC-free and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coating based on its novel PTFE (Polytetraflouroethylene) fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents and vaporize during drying, creating a significant air quality impact. Even water-based formulations often require the use of fluorinated surfactant additives to ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. 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 ...
