  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Irradiated Environmental Chambers

    SBC: Measurement Analysis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Using a novel concept for humidity control, based on a proprietary saturated air source, MAC will construct and evaluate a prototype of an environmental chamber for use with NIST’s SPHERE UV source, in weathering or other UV degradation studies. The chamber will interface to the exit ports of the SPHERE, maintaining the material coupons, mounted in a standardized sample holder, at a programmed t ...

  3. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  4. A Compact, Tamper-Resistant, Portable Fingerprint Scanner

    SBC: SBG Labs            Topic: N/A

    With the growing demand for more efficient fingerprinting techniques, live scans are rapidly displacing traditional ink-based methods. Despite improvements in detector and processing technology for capturing and digitizing fingerprints, current equipment falls well short of NIST’s goal of a small, tamper-resistant, battery-powered, handheld scanner. Incumbent equipment suppliers have little comm ...

  5. Membrane Process for solvent Reclamation and Reuse

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: C

    Many commercial hydrophilic solvents form azeotropes or have vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) pinch points with water, which making solvent recovery by conventional distillation difficult. Solvents that form such azeotropes or have such pinch points include isopropyl alcohol (IPA), acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), ethyl acetate, ethanol, butanol and tetrahydrofuran. Molecular sieve drying is p ...

  6. Ultra-Sensitive Detection of Air Toxics Using Incoherent Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: G

    In this SBIR Phase I effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to design, build and test a novel Incoherent Cavity Ring Dow Spectroscopy (iCRDS) gas analyzer operating I the mid-infrared (MIR) region for the continuous, real-time, on-site detection of multiple air toxics in ambient air. Specific applications include EPA priorities such as: air quality monitoring at remediation sites, vapor intrus ...

  7. Enhanced Drying of Pipeline Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H

    There continues to be a need for low cost production and shipment of fuel-grade ethanol from agricultural sources. Ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages including developing fuel independence and significantly reducing greenhouse gases. Also, bio-ethanol has significant value as an oxygenated and octane improver. Although ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages, th ...

  8. Fiber Optic Distributed Chemical Sensors for Environmental Impact Monitoring in Carbon Sequestration

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: F

    Technical and economical assessments suggest that over the next century the capture and storage of carbon dioxide in deep reservoirs (CCS) may contribute up to 20% of CO2-emission reductions. Reliable and cost-effective monitoring is required to demonstrate that CCS is safe, does not create adverse environmental impacts, and is an effective technology to control CO2 emissions. To meet this goal, ...

  9. Highly Efficient Water Management System for Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: H

    Life cycle analysis of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass combined with carbon capture has shown the potential to produce negative greenhouse gas emissions. More than a billion dry tons of freshly harvested lignocellulostic biomass is available at moisture contents between 20 and 60%. This material could be used for the sustainable production of biofuels. However, it is a challenge ...

  10. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency develops and promotes innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promotes environmental stewardship. Testing and characterization of the environment for potentially harmful contaminants is a costly endeavor. Current technolo ...
