  1. Nano-Enhanced Composite Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: TopicF

    With the increasing volatility of petroleum and natural gas resources, small coal-fired boilers have become increasingly more attractive for steam and power generation in several industries. This switch to small-scale, coal-fired plants is expected to continue, and increases the need for clean coal utilization technology. The U.S. Energy Policy Act includes support for a clean coal technology init ...

  2. Hand-Held Sensor for Remotely Mapping Carbon Dioxide Pollution Sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: TopicF

    In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant under the federal Clean Air Act. The ruling allows the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate CO2 emissions. Such regulation will entail monitoring a wide variety of pollution sources, including automobile exhaust systems, industrial emission sources, and carbon sequestration sites. With presently availa ...

  4. Retrofit Air Pollution Control Filter for Restaurant Underfired Charbroilers

    SBC: InnovaTech, Inc            Topic: TopicF

    Daily, approximately 321,000 underfired charbroilers in approximately 700,000 U.S. food service operations account for 94 percent of current restaurant emissions, equivalent to more than 285 tons of particulate matter (PM) and more than 41 tons of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a significant source of environmental air pollution adversely impacting health. Grease emissions from one underfired ...

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

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Incorporated            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 l ...

  6. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicI

    Hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) is an effective and well studied decontaminant for vehicles and buildings contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials. Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 weight percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department of Transportation (DOT) as b ...

  7. Rapid Concentration of Viruses from Water

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC METHODS INC            Topic: TopicD

    In the United States, several high profile outbreaks of waterborne illness during the past 15 years have highlighted the need for a solution to drinking water contamination. Several recent studies suggest that approximately 20 percent of surface and ground source waters in the United States are contaminated with viruses. There are very few data on virus occurrence in drinking water, however, which ...

  8. Commercialization of Solid Acid and Base Catalysts Derived from Biochar Optimized to Produce Biodiesel from Low Cost Oils

    SBC: Down to Earth Energy (formerly Mountain Creek Enterprises)            Topic: TopicG

    Down to Earth Energy will scale up and commercialize reusable and recoverable solid, porous acid and base catalysts for biodiesel production using biochar generated from agricultural and forestry residues (i.e., a sustainable biomass). The Phase I feasibility study using an acid catalyst made from biochar (peanut hulls, pine pellets, and pine chips) showed high efficiency methylation of fats and o ...

  10. Development and Commercialization of Granular Activated Carbon Microbial Fuel Cells for Wastewater Treatment and Power Generation

    SBC: FUSS & O'NEILL, INC.            Topic: TopicE

    Wastewater treatment facilities serve a critically important environmental and public health function, but do so at a very high cost. Implementation of microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology in wastewater systems could change the fundamental energy budget of treatment nationwide. The Phase I SBIR project, entitled "Electricity Generation from Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment in Microbial Fuel Cel ...
