  1. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER1B

    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. Rapid Field Trace Detection of Perfluoroalkyl Substance in Water

    SBC: 2W ITECH LLC            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Due to increasing concerns over long-term effects of PFOS and PFAS on human body, health based values were set by regulatory authoritative bodies for drinking water standard. Currenty lab-based PFOA and PFOS water tests cost $200-$300 per sample with a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks. In this program, 2W iTech LLC proposes to develop a low-cost fieldable sensing technology for detecting trace amounts ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator to Remove Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances from Water

    SBC: BioLargo, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    This proposal addresses the need for a pre-treatment technology to remove per- and poly- fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from industrial wastewaters. Phase I involves the design, build and testing of a novel technology to remove PFAS from water, termed the Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC). This technology will be tested as an electrical bench-scale device that concentrates PFAS through selec ...

  6. Ultralow Power Sensor Package for Ground Level Air Pollution Levels from Wildland Fires

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Inc.            Topic: 18NCER2A

    Wild fires produce significant air pollution, posing health risks to first responders, residents in nearby areas, and downwind communities. Wildfires are increasing in size and intensity, and the fire season is growing longer. Technologies for measuring air pollutants, including particulates, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and carbon dioxide, over the wide range of levels expected in areas dow ...

  7. Black Carbon and UV Particulate Matter, Multi-gas, Multi-pollutant Sensor Platform

    SBC: MICROAETH CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER2A

    As forest fires are increasing in prevalence and intensity there is a need for miniaturized, lower cost, and easily portable air sensors that provide information to first responders, public health managers and communities so informed, timely decisions can be made. PM2.5 is an accepted standard for particulate matter (PM) measurements, but PM2.5 mass measurements cannot identify sources without ana ...

  8. Remote Air Quality Reporting (RAQR) Device

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER2A

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking a ground-level air-quality monitoring device to measure wildland fire pollutants including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulates, in a small, easy-to-use unit capable of data storage and data viewing. As more frequent wildfires are expected to occur near populated areas, air-quality monitoring will be more persisten ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. The NODE biosensor: real-time contaminant detection in stormwater

    SBC: Microbiome Engineering, LLC.            Topic: 18NCER4A

    Stormwater management is a growing challenge across the country. Water quality standards are becoming increasingly strict as new regulations are developed at the state level. Meanwhile, changing land use and greater urbanization make meeting these standards even more difficult. Currently, stormwater samples are collected in the field and analyzed in the lab, a process which is time-consuming, cost ...
