  1. Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to determine if chemicals used in commerce may have hormonal effects in humans. There are mo ...

  2. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green algae, form blooms that make a surface scum and have been associated with low levels of dissolved oxygen that can be lethal ...

  3. Advanced Slagging Gasifier for Biomas Wastes

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Gasification provides a potential means of deriving clean energy from biomass waste materials. One of the greatest obstacles to the effective gasification of animal and farm waste is the slagging behavior of the residual ash at temperatures that yield the most efficient gasification performance. Many wastes are particularly problematic for dry ash gasification processes, especially waste from co ...

  4. CATALYTIC ADSORBENTS FOR THE ABATEMENT OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS

    SBC: Aircor Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL EMISSION CONTROL PROCESS FOR CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS PRODUCES NO TOXIC OR CORROSIVE SECONDARY GASES. CATALYTIC ADSORBENT MATERIALS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DESTROY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBON IN GASEOUS EFFLUENTS WITHOUT THE RELEASE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID AND CHLORINE GAS. INSTEAD THE ADSORBENT WILL FIX THE CHLORINE ATOMS AS HARMLESS NONVOLATILE CHLORIDE SALT AT TEMPERATURES W ...

  5. CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL FROM CHEMICALLY ACTIVATED FLY ASH

    SBC: By-products Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    Out of 50 million tons of fly ash generated each year in the United States, only27% is reused or recycled. The remaining 73% is landfilled which presentspotential environmental problems in the future. This projects main objective isto develop a new class of construction material from the Chemically Activated FlyAsh (CAFA) in conjunction with fine and coarse aggregates, and determinepertinent mec ...

  6. Noncontact, Optical Molecular Method for Detection and Identificaton of Cryptosporidium Parvaum Oocysts in Drinking Water

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: N/A

    Contamination of drinking water with pathogenic microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium has become an increasing concern in recent years. Cryptosporidium oocysts particularly are problematic, because infections caused by this organism can be life threatening in immunocompromised patients. Current methods for monitoring and analyzing water often are laborious and require expertise. In addition, m ...

  7. USE OF A CYCLONE COMBUSTOR TO CONVERT MUNICIPAL INCINERATOR FLY ASH TO INERT SLAG

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AN ADVANCED AIR COOLED, CYCLONE COAL COMBUSTOR WILL BE USED TO DEMONSTRATE ITS TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY FOR THE EFFICIENT CONVERSION OF FLY ASH FROM MUNICIPAL INCINERATORS TO SLAG. TWO SETS OF SHORT DURATION PARAMETRIC TESTS WILL BE PERFORMED IN WHICH FLY ASH WILL BE INJECTED IN A COMMERCIAL SCALE COMBUSTOR INSTALLED ON A 17,500 LB/HR PACKAGE BOILER, LOCATED IN WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA. THE OBJECTI ...

  8. SUPPRESSION OF CYANIDE FORMATION IN HALL PROCESS POTLINING

    SBC: EMEC Consultants            Topic: N/A

    SPENT POTLINING FROM INDUSTRIAL PRIMARY ALUMINUM PRODUCTION CELLS IS A DESIGNATED HAZARDOUS MATERIAL BECAUSE OF ITS CYANIDE CONTENT. OVER 100,000 TONS OF THIS MATERIAL ARE ANNUALLY LANDFILLED IN THE UNITED STATES. IT WOULD BE DESIRABLE TO AVOID THE FORMATION OF CYANIDE DURING THE OPERATION OF THE CELLS. EMEC CONSULTANTS PROPOSETO INVESTIGATE THE CONDITIONS AT WHICH CYANIDES FORM AND MIGRATE WITHIN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. DETOXIFICATION OF SPENT HALL CELL POTLINING

    SBC: EMEC Consultants            Topic: N/A

    Cyanide forms in the lining of aluminum production cells due to the reaction ofcarbon, sodium and nitrogen. It is proposed it mix spent potling, a solid andhazardous waste, withmoderate temperatures to form environmentally benign compounds. The envisionedprocess will be suited for the in-situ treatment of potlining at individualsmelters and aims at converting this hazardous material into a usefu ...

  10. Method To Remediate Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazards

    SBC: EMEC Consultants            Topic: N/A

    This research project aims to modify an environmentally and occupationally favorable novel method to remove lead-based paint from steel for use on nonconductive substrates such as wood, cement, brick, and cinder block. If successful, a convenient, dust-free method will be available for safe indoor and outdoor site remediation involving lead hazards and waste. Minimal occupational hazards and rec ...
