  1. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water


    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been identified as a serious health contaminant in water at levels between 12 and 516 parts per trillion by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. In 2016, the EPA set a lifetime health advisory of 70 parts per trillion for two PFASs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). These compounds come from a variety of so ...

  2. Disposable Test Strips for Ultra-Sensitive Quantification of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Ground Water

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Human exposure to polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has been linked to cancer, elevated cholesterol, obesity, immune suppression and endocrine disruption. The EPA has set a PFOA health advisory of 70 parts-per-trillion. Due to widespread use of PFAS in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) to fight fuel fires, millions of gallons of PFASs have been used at oil refineries, military bases, civil aviation ...

  3. Electrochemical Pretreatment of PFAS-Contaminated Aqueous Effluents

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    The widespread use of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl species (PFAS) chemicals for commercial products and industrial applications has resulted in bioaccumulation of these chemicals in the environment and a public health hazard. Development of novel approaches for in situ degradation of PFAS in industrial and landfill wastewaters would greatly facilitate efforts to prevent discharge of these hazard ...

  4. Electrochemical Extraction and Remediation of PFAS in Soils

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER3A

    Due to release of industrial and landfill effluent into the environment, per- and polyfluorinated alkyl species (PFAS) have been accumulating in soil, sediment and groundwater, with subsequent absorption by living organisms. PFAS have the potential to cause multiple adverse health effects, including low birth weight, accelerated puberty, and cancer. Novel approaches for in situ degradation of PFAS ...

  5. Novel Sorbent Technology for Simultaneous Removal and Degradation of Waterborne PFAS

    SBC: Claros Technologies Inc.            Topic: 18NCER3A

    The specific need for the technology, what the technology would do to meet that need, technical feasibility, application(s), end users, size of the potential market, performance compared to current technologies and potential for environmental benefits. Poly- and per- fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a broad category of highly conjugated synthetic organofluorine compounds that have been shown to ...

  6. Low cost hyperspectral measurement system to identify harmful materials in construction and demolition (C&D) materials


    Because C&D materials constitute a significant waste stream, increasing the diversion of C&D materials, through recycling and reuse, is identified as an area of need in EPA’s Sustainable materials management (SMM) Program Strategic Plan.Due to lack of technologies to quickly identify constituents, C&D-materials recyclers often dispose of potentially usable materials as a matter of precaution. Th ...

  7. CDD-SORT: A Next-Generation System to Detect Hazardous & Recyclable Materials in Discarded C&D Debris

    SBC: PTP Strategy LLC            Topic: 18NCER6A

    The Construction and Demolition Debris Support Vector Machine Optical Recycling Technology (CDDSORT) is our proposed system that detects hazardous, problematic, and recyclable components in the 150+ million tons of construction and demolition (C&D) debris discarded annually at US landfills and recycling facilities. Our system and technology leverages a combination of emerging computer vision techn ...

  8. Development of a Non-Toxic Paint Stripper

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER7A

    Paint stripping products are a $360 million per year business in the United States.Currently, the most effective ones rely on Methylene Chloride (MeCl).MeCl is an aggressive solvent that can loosen a coating and make it easily removed in as little as 30 minutes.Unfortunately, MeCl is toxic and dangerous to handle, especially without respiratory protection.MeCl is also harmful to the environment.Th ...

  9. Fast acting Bio-Derived and Bio-Degradable Paint Removers for Epoxy, Latex and Lacquer Coatings

    SBC: Talk About It Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER7A

    Remooble proposes a new class of safe, bio-derived, and bio-degradable paint removers that can strip multiple layers of coating in a single application to be developed to replace hazardous use of methylene chloride and NMP-based paint strippers: For a pant removers to be of added value to a customer it must meet the following requirements: 1. Fast acting 2. Effective over a wide variety of coating ...

  10. Cervical Spine Health Improvement Products

    SBC: Switchbox, Inc.            Topic: DHP18B001

    Most standard-of-care tools and techniques for evaluating neck disorders are subjective, unreliable, and do not provide actionable information for providers, payers, and organizations to deliver efficient and effective care. This lack of objective neck he
