  1. PM 2.5 Emissions Reduction for Two-Stroke Engines

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicG

    Small particulate emissions, such as those that fall within the PM2.5 classification, have a substantial negative effect on air quality and human health. Significant sources of PM2.5 emissions are small two-stroke engines that are used in outdoor power equipment such as leaf blowers, chain saws, and string trimmers, as well as larger two-stroke engines used in recreational vehicles such as all-ter ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. Nanoporous Metal Organic Framework Filters for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: TopicC

    The objective of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of using some newly discovered materials, water-stable metal-organic frameworks (MOF), as filters for pollutants common in indoor air. By way of background, recent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-supported work from Professor Masel’s laboratory has shown that a new class of water-stable MOFs shows unprecedented ad ...

  5. Development of Intelligent Process Control for Thin Film Solar Panel Manufacturing

    SBC: Accustrata, Inc.            Topic: TopicB

    This SBIR project addresses the problem of waste and low manufacturing yield in the typical thin film manufacturing process. It has the potential to make a significant impact on energy utilization and become a critical component to making thin film processes cost effective, leading to waste-free manufacturing. Thin film deposition processes are extensively used in man-critical industries with sign ...

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

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: TopicH

    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 ...

  7. Compact High Resolution Electrospray Ionization Ion Mobility Spectrometer for Online Water Monitoring

    SBC: EXCELLIMS CORPORATION            Topic: TopicJ

    Among 12 classes of water contaminants grouped in EPA’s WaterSentinel Initiative (WS-CWS detection classes, USEPA 2005c), online detection of toxic industrial chemicals (TIC) and chemical warfare agents (CWA) remains one of the major challenges. This project involves an electrospray ionization-high resolution ion mobility spectrometer (ESI-HRIMS) system that is suitable for detecting CWAs, t ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Bio-Electrochemical Systems for Ethanol Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: TopicH

    Ethanol production for use as biofuel, which will grow to 166 billion liters worldwide by 2020, produces 3-5 liters of waste for every liter of ethanol. This waste contains significant amounts of stillage that is high in both total suspended solids (TSS) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), requiring significant processing for remediation. Current treatment options such as aerobic and anaerobic diges ...

  10. 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 ...
