  1. Arsenic Removal System for Residential and Point-of-Use Applications

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

    Arsenic contamination in drinking water is a severe health risk to populations throughout the world, including the United States. In recognition of this threat, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently lowered its water standard for arsenic from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. This change is expected to impact 10 percent of U.S. community drinking water systems. The operators of small water sy ...

  2. Active-Core Optical Fiber Ammonia Sensor

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

    Oxides of nitrogen, or NOx, are common air pollutants in congested urban areas. NOx contributes to a variety of environmental problems, including ground-level ozone (smog), acid rain, and visibility impairment. NOx emissions are generated by motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and electric power plants. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 required that stationary sources, such as power plan ...

  3. Impregnated Clay Sorbents for Mercury Removal From Flue Gas

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

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced its intention to regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants because of mercury¿s impact on the health and development of young children and fetuses. The estimated cost of controlling mercury emissions from power plants runs from $2 to $5 billion annually, with a significant fraction of the total dedicated to activated carb ...

  4. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services called lead ¿the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.¿ Lead exposure can cause premature birth and impair a child¿s mental and physical development. In adults, lead exposure can cause kidney damage, high blood pressure, and other problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates tha ...

  5. Phytoextractionand Recycling of Arsenic From CCA-Contaminated Soils

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    More than 70 percent of U.S. arsenic consumption¿representing approximately 37 million pounds of arsenic per year¿is used to produce chromated copper arsenate (CCA), a wood preservative. Weathered lumber in decks, docks, playground equipment, and garden construction can leach significant amounts of arsenic into soil and water, where it poses health risks to humans and animals. Effective Decemb ...

  6. Aluminum Plating With Ambient Temperature Ionic Liquids

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This project will address the feasibility of an ambient temperature chloroaluminate ionic liquid as a medium for efficient electroplating of high-quality aluminum. The chloroaluminate, composed of a mixture of aluminum chloride and an organic chloride salt, is liquid at room temperature. These media promise highly effective plating of crystalline, nondendritic, nonporous aluminum. This process ...

  7. Zero Ammonia Catalysts for Abatement of NOx and Other Species With Waste Minimization

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The abatement of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from combustion sources traditionally has been conducted by selective catalytic reduction over vanadia-titania with an ammonia reagent. However, this presents requirements and associated costs for ammonia use and storage as well as loss due to ammonia slip. This Phase I research project addresses the removal of NOx without ammonia in the presence of sulfur ...

  8. Development and Preliminary Validation of an Amphibian Lifecycle Test Method for Monitoring Endocrine Disruption

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns regarding both the presence of endocrine disruptors in food, water, or other environmental media as well as the potential risk they pose to humans and wildlife have been growing in recent years. Passage of the Food Quality Protection Act and Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act reflected these concerns and required the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop a screenin ...

  9. Validation of a Rapid Progestin-Based Endocrine Disruption Screening Assay

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.¿s Phase I research project resulted in the development and standardization of an assay that tests substances that might disturb reproductive and developmental processes in animals by interfering with the endocrine system. The primary goal of the proposed research was to validate and commercialize the Xenopus laevis oocyte maturation germinal vesicle breakdow ...

  10. Sulfide Mineral Coating Process To Control Acid Rock Drainage

    SBC: Little Bear Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Acid rock drainage (ARD) is a significant environmental problem. ARD is caused by chemical and biological processes (i.e., the oxidation of sulfide minerals in mine tailings and waste rock) and characterized by acidic water containing heavy metals. Existing technology for combating ARD consists of treating the acidic effluents or isolating problematic tailings or waste rock, but it does not atta ...
