  1. Low-Cost Retrofit Emissions Control in Off-Road Sources


    Considerable progress has been made in reducing emissions from stationary and highway sources. However, new emission standards require that new off-road (non-road) diesel engines achieve emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other species comparable to those from on-road sources. Additionally, biofuel (e.g., biodiesel) powered vehicles offer the potential for increased NOx emissions. There are cu ...

  2. Distributed Optical Fiber Sensor for Long-term Monitoring of Groundwater Trichloroethylene Levels

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: TopicI

    There is a current need for sensor technologies that can be used for the long-term monitoring of groundwater, specifically for chlorinated hydrocarbons, such as trichloroethylene (TCE). Sensors should meet required pollutant detection levels and be small enough, yet robust, and be capable of being deployed at a reasonable cost. The sensor formant should include flux meters and piezometers to chara ...

  3. Reagentless Field-Usable Fixed-Site and Portable Analyzer for Trihalomethane (THM) Concentrations in Drinking Water

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Inc.            Topic: TopicD

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules stipulate that corrective action be taken for drinking water distribution systems that exceed the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total trihalomethanes (TTHMs), 80 μg/L. Currently, real-time or even periodic monitoring of drinking water is not economically feasible. Available methods use gas chromatography and are expensive and plagued with lon ...

  4. Novel Membrane Process to Utilize Dilute Methane Streams


    Methane is the second largest contributor to global warming after carbon dioxide. As public awareness has increased in the last 2 decades, various technologies and process improvements have been developed to curb methane emissions in the United States. There is still a lack of economically viable technology, however, to utilize dilute methane streams containing 10 to 14 percent methane in which th ...

  5. Self-Healing Corrosion-Control Coatings: An Enabling Technology To Restore Aging Water Infrastructure and Permit Alternative Water Use for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problem Statement: Most of the Nation’s water infrastructure is aging rapidly. Reports indicate that in the major water systems, approximately 30 percent of the pipes are 40 to 80 years old, and approximately 10 percent are more than 80 years old. The water pipes are subject to internal and external corrosion, resulting in pipe leaks and water main breaks. In addition to aging, the rapidly grow ...

  6. Quantum Dot/Aptamer Real-Time Flow Sensor

    SBC: Smart Polymers Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Smart Polymers Research Corporation proposes to create a fluorescence-based fully automated flow sensor for real-time environmental detection of biothreat pathogens in water or in the air. The sensor will be utilizing pathogen-specific aptamers chemically modified with highly fluorescent quantum dots. The detection will be performed in the flow mode and provide results in real time. Based on the f ...

  7. Wireless Instrumentation for Control of Greenhouse Gas Emissions by the Aluminum Industry; Measurement and Monitoring of Current Distribution in Aluminum Reduction Cells

    SBC: Wireless Industrial Technologies            Topic: TopicD

    There are 315 to 458 million metric tons of CO2 (or equivalents) emissions per year due to primary aluminum production, of which 21 to 31 million metric tons are estimated to be produced in the United States. In part, this is due to the enormous electrical energy consumption entailed: 548,350 gigawatt hours worldwide (more than the electricity consumed by the whole of Germany), and the energy ine ...

  8. Mill Trials of a Novel Formaldehyde-Free Soy-Based Wood Adhesive for Making Plywood

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, and flooring, and are predominately made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. A new formaldehyde-free, environmentally friendly wood adhesive that mainly consists of abundant, renewable and readily available soybean flour and a novel curing agent have been developed in a laboratory. The novel cu ...

  9. Handheld Detection System for TCE and PCE

    SBC: DEFIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: TopicC

    The concept of this SBIR project is to employ a hand-held sensor system to monitor groundwater. This concept recognizes the need for users to query field sensors remotely to report on concentration of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE). The missing part of this concept is a low-power sensor system that can reliably analyze groundwater for these contaminants. Defian ...

  10. Silane-Terminated Aliphatic Polycarbonate Dendrimer Solutions for Environmentally Green Coatings


    Polyurethane (PU) coatings continue to be a detriment to the environment. As long as compliance leads to higher costs for coatings manufacturers and applicators, tighter regulation will lead to increased resistance by these companies or ultimately will shift production to less-regulated areas. The ideal situation would be if environmentally friendly practices led to lower costs for coatings manufa ...
