  1. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy, and must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $700M in 202 ...

  2. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Current petroleum-derived-plastics contain additives such as phthalates or bisphenolA that are harmful to human health and the environment. Thus, it’s critical to replace such toxic non-biodegradable plastics with biodegradable bioplastics. To meet bioplastics production need, Altex, and Texas A&M University (TAMU) have teamed up to utilize renewable biomass, such as forest residue, agricultural ...

  3. PFAS Analyzer- A fieldable device for the broad-spectrum analysis of PFAS in water, soil, and sediments

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are used in food packaging, as coatings for cloth (e.g. Scotchgard), firefighting foams, electronics, and industrial and automotive components. Being perfluorinated species, they are engineered to breakdown slowly (half-life >92 years in water), and thus persist for very long times. Their high water-solubility makes them especially dangerous, and much like perchlo ...

  4. 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 ...

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

    SBC: ENOVEO USA 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 ...

  10. Photoacoustic Gasses Optical Detector and AnalyzerPhotoacoustic Gasses Optical Detector and Analyzer

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD171004

    To address the CBDs need for real-time analytical technology for multicomponent vapor identification and quantification, Physical OpticsCorporation (POC) proposes to continue the development of a new Photoacoustic Gasses Optical Detector and Analyzer (PAGODA)autonomous, network-enabled photoacoustic spectrometer (PAS) for the correlation, analysis, and identification of measured spectra. In thePha ...
