  1. Development of Pathway Selective Cells and Assays for Sensitive Detection of Environmental Toxicants via High Throughput Label-free Cell Based Screening

    SBC: ACEA Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: B

    Environmental pollutants that impact critical biological pathways involved in human development and physiology can have unpredictable effect on health. Among these critical pathways, various receptor tyrosine kinases, sonic hedgehog, transforming growth factor beta, Notch and WNT are known or suspected mediators of the effect of numerous environmental toxicants produced during manufacturing, pres ...

  2. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water Based Wood Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: B

    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors is moving back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For the last thirty years the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmenta ...

  3. 3D Breast Tissue Co-cultures for Screening Mammary Carcinogens

    SBC: REGENEMED, INC.            Topic: B

    Breast cancer is not a disease of individual cells, but principally a failure of cells and tissues to communicate properly. One communication mechanism that is frequently disrupted in breast cancer involves the hormone estrogen. Despite recognition that exposure to compounds with estrogenic activity can promote breast cancer formation and progression, no good mechanistic explanation presently ex ...

  4. Automated Monitoring of Wastewater Treatment Efficiency

    SBC: Verrix, LLC            Topic: D

    Wastewater treatments minimize transmission of pathogens, and are required by the EPA with established treatment and monitoring requirements. The efficiency of treatment processes is determined by measuring the inactivation of indicator organisms (e.g., fecal coliforms) with culture-based techniques. Recently, Clostridium perfringens spores have been identified as excellent indicator organisms t ...

  5. Electrolytic Reactor for N Removal from Existing Septic Tanks

    SBC: Enviro Utilities, Inc.            Topic: A

    According to the US EPA 2002 Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems Manual, approximately 26 million homes, businesses, and recreational facilities in the United States use onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems (OWTD) (also called septic systems). Numerous studies have found correlations between OWTDs and elevated NO3 levels in drinking water. The U.S. EPA has reported that nitrates (NO3 ...

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

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: D

    NanoSonic’s Hybridsil® insulative coatings provide a paradigm-breaking alternative to spray-deposited polyurethane foams by affording comparable insulation yet without any of the health and safety concerns associated with diisocyanate derived foams. NanoSonic designed and optimized its next-generation, green-certified Hybridsil® insulative foam to provide drastically enhanced fire resistance, ...

  7. Solid Waste Remediation System (SWRS) for Small Contingency Base Camps

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD12EP2

    To meet the requirements of the Army Solid Waste Remediation System, for Small Contingency Base Camps, Altex has developed a Compact Ward Furnace Energy Recovery System (CWFERS), which was proven feasible by testing and analysis, under a Phase I award. The system reduces fuel consumption by 92% fuel, compared to a traditional remediation system, and converts the energy in the bulk waste to hot wa ...

  8. Handheld Microfluidic Device for Cyanobacteria Toxin Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated“lab-on-a-chip” technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of a variety of toxins in drinking water, particularly microcystins and other toxins produced by cyanobacteria. During blooms, the toxins in freshwater become concentrated enough to be a serious concern for ahuman health, ...

  9. Ultralow Power CO2 Sensor for Intelligent Building Controls

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Inc.            Topic: C

    The proposed EPA SBIR Phase I program will create a novel ultra low power and low cost microfabricated CO2 sensor. The initial developments of sensor technology will serve the very large Demand Controlled Ventilation market that has been identified by KWJ and its collaborators. Phase I is dedicated to design, fabrication and testing of the innovative system consisting of a unique MEMS sensor, di ...

  10. LOW NOX MULTIPLE FLAME BURNER CONCEPT

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    STRINGENTLY REGULATED OZONE NONATTAINMENT AIR QUALITY REGIONS WILL REQUIRE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ULTRA-LOW-NOX SYSTEMS. CURRENTLY, ONLY COSTLY SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR) SYSTEMS CAN ACHIEVE VERY HIGH LEVELS OF NOX REDUCTION. INEXPENSIVE LOW NOX BURNERS, THAT CAN MEET THE REGULATIONS WITHOUT SCR, ARE URGENTLY NEEDED BY INDUSTRY. RECENTLY, PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE TOWARDS DEVELOPING A SUB-9 P ...
