The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Fluorescent Liposomes for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Toxins in Water

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Reliable and sensitive detection of potential biowarfare agent (BWA) toxins such as botulinum toxin, staphylococcal enterotoxin, saxitoxin, etc., is an important challenge during both military operations and for domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We proposeto develop biomimetic polymerized liposomes/antibody conjugates that will detect toxins in aqueous samples, and will be integrated into a porta ...

  2. Fluorescent Coated Filters for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Microorganisms in Water

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Reliable and sensitive detection of microbial biowarfare agents (BWAs) such as Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, and Francisella tularensis is an important challenge for both military operations and domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We are proposing todevelop an antibody functionalized biomimetic polymer coating for filter membranes that will become fluorescent when exposed to samples containi ...

  3. Optical Sensing and Control of Polymer Processing

    SBC: Chemical ElectroPhysics Co. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NIST/industry consortium identified accurate temperature distribution measurements, as one of the major technical needs of polymer processors. NIST developed a way to make spatially resolved temperature measurements. Add a small amount of dye. During processing, focus UV illumination onto a small volume element of the process material. Use the ratio of the resulting fluorescent intensities at tw ...

  4. Enhanced Disinfection & Pesticide Removal From Fruits & Vegetables

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This study will focus on the further development and optimization of a new method to deliver ozone into process waters employed for washing fruits and vegetables. The FDA has just approved the use of ozone to control pathogens in the food processing industry. Key objectives of this study include development of pilot rig consisting of O3 generation, delivery equipment, while studying overall enhanc ...

  6. Fouling-Resistant Ultrafiltration Membranes for Treatment of Oily Bilge Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a recognized need for more effective and economical treatment processes for oily bilge waters. Direct filtration through currently available ultrafiltration (UF) membranes is a mechanically simple process that can provide excellent effluent quality. A limitation to more extensive use of this technology is the tendency of the hydrophilic membranes currently used to foul in the presence of ...

  7. Improved Fruit Juice Concentration Process

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Concentration of fruit juices is a valuable unit operation. The current preferred method of juice concentration is triple effect evaporation. This technique cannot concentrate to high (75%) solids content without (1) developing a burnt taste to the sugar content and (2) driving off the low molecular weight hydrocarbons that provide most of the flavor and aroma difference between fresh and frozen c ...

  8. Membranes for Air Venting and Retaining VOCs in Gasoline Storage Tanks

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Fugitive emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from gasoline marketing facilities continues to be an energy, safety, and environmental issue. Beginning in model year 2000, all vehicles are required to have an onboard refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) system, which will increase fugitive emissions from refueling stations because of the interface between ORVR vehicles and gasoline station und ...

  9. NOVEL PYROGEN REMOVAL SYSTEM

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DECRIPTION (Provided by applicant): Pyrogen-free water (PFW) is required in many applications. Laboratories use it as solvent for compound preparation, culture media, and equipment rinse. Hospitals use it for cleaning to prepare solutions for injections, lV's, and hemodialysis. Pharmaceutical manufacturers use it to formulate injectable drug preparations. Pyrogens, or fever-inducers, are derived f ...

  10. Retrofitting Diesel Electrical Generators for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Diesel generator sets (gen-sets) are used routinely to supply electrical power. Hospitals, businesses, and small communities use gen-sets to help reduce costs by load leveling and provide emergency power during blackouts (either scheduled or unscheduled). Recent power outages in California have led to large increases in the purchase of gen-sets, primarily for providing emergency power. In addition ...
