  1. Handheld Detection System for TCE and PCE

    SBC: DEFIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: TopicC

    The concept of this SBIR project is to employ a hand-held sensor system to monitor groundwater. This concept recognizes the need for users to query field sensors remotely to report on concentration of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE). The missing part of this concept is a low-power sensor system that can reliably analyze groundwater for these contaminants. Defian ...

  2. Recycling Process for Poultry Litter

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available We propose to investigate the feasibility of manufacturing a simple waveguide laser that would demonstrate all of the qualities of fiber lasers while utilizing the simple pumping scheme of an side pumped Nd:YAG laser. The Phase I effort will involve modeling of the system and Phase II will be construction of a prototype. We will investigate a wound single mode rare earth doped fiber ...

  3. Fiber Optic Sensors with Hydrophilic Radionuclide-Selective Cladding for the Detection of Radionuclides in Water Supplies

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed Phase I program, we will develop a fiber optic scintillator system with a radionuclide-selective cladding for use in the detection of radionuclide contamination in water supplies or wastewater streams. The current terrorist threat requires that vigilance be maintained on all avenues of attack to the United States, including the potential for attack on the countrys food or water s ...

  4. DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY THE HDI ELECTRIC ARC PROCESS 11490

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY ELECTRIC ARC PYROLYSIS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE BY OTHERS. THE PRINCIPAL PROBLEMS LIE IN (1) THE SHORT LIFEOF THE ELECTRODES (AND RELATED STRUCTURES) DUE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES INVOLVED, AND (2) THE RELATIVELY HIGH COST OF THE ELECTRIC POWER NEEDED. APPLIED RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSE TO DESTROY ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE B ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. Hydrothermal/Thermal Decompostion of Perchlorate

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The proposed effort utilizes the experience gained from over 20 years of work performed by the Optical Sciences Company in the area of atmospheric propagation, wavefront sensing and adaptive optics technology to develop new wavefront compensation algorithms that advance the state-of-the-art and provide new improved levels of performance when propagation through the turbulence of int ...

  6. REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METAL IONS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING IMMOBILIZED ALGAE

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PLATING AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES ARE REQUIRED BY STATEAND FEDERAL REGULATIONS TO REMOVE TOXIC, HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS BEFORE DISCHARGE. THE SEMICONDUCTOR AND AND PRINTED CIRCUIT INDUSTRY ALONE REMOVED OVER 7.2 TONS OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER IN 1983. MUCH OF THE RECOVERED METALS ARE DISCARDED AS SLUDGES, BECAUSE TECHNIQUES FOR RECOVERING AND SEPARATING THE METAL IONS ARE U ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. RECLAMATION OF SOILS AND SOIL LEACHATES CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOIL WASHING OR FLUSHING HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR REMOVING HEAVY METALS FROM METAL-CONTAMINATED SOILS AT SUPERFUND SITES. SANDY SOILS CAN OFTEN BE WASHED WITH WATER TO MOBILIZE METAL IONS IN AN AQUEOUS PHASE, BUT FOR CLAY SOILS OR SOILS WHICH CONTAIN INSOLUBLE METAL COMPOUNDS, E.G., LEAD SULFATE, OTHER ADDITIVES SUCH AS CHELATING AGENTS (EDTA) ARE USED TO EFFECT TRANSFER OF MET ...

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METAL IONS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING IMMOBILIZED ALGAE

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1986 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A Catalytic Exhaust Purifying System for Resturants

    SBC: Clear Skies Unlimited, Inc.l            Topic: N/A

    As stated in the EPA 2004 Solicitation topic B1, there is a need for new technologies to control restaurant emissions. There are over 870,000 restaurants in the United States. Most of these restaurants have under-fired charbroiler creating a significant amount of partifculate matter and volatile organic compouns which have been determined health and environmental hazareds by the EPA. Although s ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Subsurface Treatment for Arsenic Removal

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Subsurface treatment for arsenic removal (STAR) is an innovative technology for treatment of arsenic in groundwater at the wellhead. The STAR technology can result in large cost savings when compared with conventional above-ground treatment methods. The goal is to create a subsurface biogeochemical barrier composed of reactive iron hydroxide minerals and iron bacteria within the aquifer surround ...
