  1. VOC-free, Highly Flame Resistant HybridsilTM Insulation Coatings for Next Generation Thermal Insulation and Energy Efficiency

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: D

    The objective of this Phase I SBIR Program is to develop VOC-free, spray depositable HybridSilTM insulation coatings for providing next generation thermal insulation and energy efficiency within commercial and residential buildings. The proposed coating technology will serve as a replacement for currently employed polyurethane spray foam coatings yet provide orders of magnitude greater thermal in ...

  2. Non-Formaldehyde Biobased Phenolic Resins

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: D

    New product based on non-traditional and renewable feedstock need to be developed for both economic and environmental concerns. Bio-oils from biomass such as scrap wood, storm debris and even corn stover can be used to create phenol substitutes useful in the epoxy and wood adhesive markets. This results in materials in which the end user (a builder for instance) may claim additional LEED credits ...

  3. Pipeline-Quality Methane from Anaeronbic Digestion Streams

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: I

    Large farms and feedlot operations produce large quantities of manure in a small area. Anaerobic digester units capable of producing pipeline quality methane installed at each farm or dairy could be instrumental in eliminating the difficulties associated with the transport of manure off site. If consumed properly, use of manure-derived fuels can also protect against environmental problems such as ...

  4. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  5. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
