  1. Development of Innovative Broad-Spectrum Analysis Methods for PFAS

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    This SBIR addresses EPA’s need for improved sampling and analysis technologies to detect Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). PFAS are used in firefighting sprays, at airports, and for wild fires, and have been used in textile treatments (e.g., it is a component in Scotchgard). It is estimated that 65 million Americans are at risk of PFAS exposure in their drinking water. Seacoast propose ...

  7. Handheld microfluidic device for cyanobacteria toxin detection and monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    There are approximately 7,000 flares in operation at industrial facilities across the United States. Flares are one of the largest volatile organic compounds (VOC) and air toxics emission 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 Harris County, Texas were 1469.5 tons in a ...

  8. Development of a Cost-effective, Nutrient-removal, Onsite Household Wastewater Treatment System for Environmentally Fragile Areas

    SBC: CLEW            Topic: A

    Coastal communities have witnessed their ecosystems change over the past 25 years due to nitrogen loading and phosphate pollution from high-population density and no access to centralized sewage systems. Some effects have been eutrophication, algal blooms, fish dying and, most notably, consequences for local development and real estate.CLEW provides an inexpensive, efficient and an environmentally ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Environmental Sensing System Enhanced With Nested Concentrating Electrodes (ESSENCE) for Safe and Sustainable Water Resources

    SBC: BIOPICO SYSTEMS Inc.            Topic: A

    Water quality is critical for human health and habitation, so a timely identification of pathogens is necessary to avoid severe infections and ensure safe and sustainable water resources. Most of the existing microorganism concentration methods are based on filtration using size or charge membranes, and a generic membrane-filtration method with the ability to simultaneously concentrate all microor ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. ECAR- Electrochemical Arsenic Remediation for Affordable Water Security in America

    SBC: SimpleWater            Topic: F

    Arsenic contamination in public drinking water affects as many as 56 million Americans across 25 reporting states, disproportionately threatening low-income communities and private well owners, including those near shale gas deposits undergoing production by hydraulic fracturing. Many of these arsenic-prone communities rely on expensive energy and chemical-intensive processes, such as reverse osmo ...
