  1. Real-Time Multi-Parameter Analysis of Pollutants in Stormwater and Other Complex Analyte Matrices Using Electrospray Ionization-Ion Mobility Spectroscopy

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    The adverse effects of stormwater runoff on water quality in the United States have become an increasing concern in recent years. In 1996, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported to Congress that urban runoff was the leading source of pollutants that cause water quality impairment related to human activities in ocean shoreline waters, and the second leading source of pollutants in estua ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Nanocomposite-Based Filter for Arsenic Removal in Drinking Water

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency¿s (EPA) directive of 10 ppb levels for arsenic in drinking water, there is an urgent need to develop new, simple, and effective treatment systems that can be qualified as best available technologies (BAT) to remove this toxic substance from water. Towards this goal, Materials Modification, Inc. (MMI) proposes to develop a novel arsenic-remo ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: WAMAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    LEAD IN SOIL MUST BE TREATED IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE EXPOSURE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH LEAD MIGRATION AND LEAD BIOAVAILABILITY. SINCE THE LEVEL OF LEAD IN CONTAMINATED SOIL IS USUALLY VERY LOW, A COST-EFFECTIVE AND SAFE LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED. THIS RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE A NOVEL LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY BASED ON NATURAL SOIL CHEMICAL REACTIONS WITH ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE MATERIALS. PHASE I ...
