  3. Real-Time Multi-Parameter Analysis of Pollutants in Stormwater and Other Complex Analyte Matrices Using Electrospray Ionization-Ion Mobility Spectroscopy

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    The adverse effects of stormwater runoff on water quality in the United States have become an increasing concern in recent years. In 1996, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported to Congress that urban runoff was the leading source of pollutants that cause water quality impairment related to human activities in ocean shoreline waters, and the second leading source of pollutants in estua ...

  4. A Low Cost Chemosensor for Measuring Phosphate in Water and Soil

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I SBIR research is expected to lead to the development of a low cost portable instrument capable of making real time measurements of phosphate in water and soil samples. The sensor system for this instrument will be based on the highly selective phosphate binding properties of a co-polymer to be synthesized in this research. In many areas, the rapid growth and intensification ...

  5. BIODEGRADATION ENHANCEMENT OF PEETROGENIC WASTES

    SBC: Ecova Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP AN IN SITU PROCESS WHICH WILL ENHANCE THE RATE AND EFFICIENCY ASSOCIATED WITH THE BIODEGRADATION OF HYDROPHOBIC ORGANIC CHEMICALS AT MILITARY INSTALLATIONS AND SUPERFUND SITES. RESEARCH ACTIVITIES WILLFOCUS ON IDENTIFICATION OF CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL EMULSIFIERS (SURFACTANTS) WHICH WILL ENHANCE THE BIO-AVAILABILITY OF SUCH PETROGENIC WASTE AS CREOSOTE, COAL TARS, ...

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Portable Trace Metal Detection System Based on Disposable Multi-Element Nanoband Electrode Sensors

    SBC: EDTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project involves the development of a portable system for the analysis of trace metals in aqueous solutions based on an innovative disposable multi-element nanoband electrode sensor. The system will be capable of real-time detection of a variety of heavy metals in aqueous solutions, including Zn, Cd, Pb, Cr, Cu, and Hg with a 100 ppb detection limit. The system also will be capable ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. ELECTROLYTIC TREATMENT OF WASTE PICKLING LIQUOR TO RECOVER

    SBC: Flemming And Wickett            Topic: N/A

    WASTE PICKLING LIQUOR IS PRODUCED WHIN ACID IS USED TO RE- MOVED SCALE FROM STEEL PRODUCTS. TYPICALLY IT CONTAINS 10% ACID AND 5% IRON IN THE FORM OF THE FERROUS SALT OF THE ACIDUSED. IT IS PRODUCED IN LARGE QUANTITIES. ITS DISPOSAL IS DIFFICULT AND WILL BECOME MORE SO WHEN THE PLANNED TOTAL BANON ON DEPOSITION OF LIQUIDS IN A LAND DISPOSAL SITES BECOMES EFFECTIVE. AN ELECTROLYTIC PROCESS WILL BE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. CONTAINMENT OF TOXIC WASTE BY IN SITU CONSTRUCTION OF BARRIER WALL

    SBC: Fluidyne Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTAINMENT OF TOXIC MATERIALS ALREADY BURIED IN THE GROUND AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW DISPOSAL SITES ARE DIFFI-CULT TASKS. IN BOTH CASES THERE IS A NEED FOR VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL BARRIER WALLS IN THE GROUND THAT ARE KNOWN TO BE DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE TO CONSTRUCT WITH CURRENTLY-AVAILA- BLE TECHNOLOGIES. FLUIDYNE PROPOSES TO CONSTRUCT SUCH BARRIER WALLS WITH A NOVEL ONE-STEP PROCESS THT IN ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. N/A

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available NASA has unique data collection requirements to support ground-based testing of rocket engines. Not only is the rapid collection of data important, but the transmission of this information to processing facilities is critical. By combining new electrical interface standards with high speed fiber optic technology, generic transmission systems can be designed which would be capable of ...

    SBIR Phase I 2000 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Removal of Mercury and other Heavy Metals of Industrial and Contaminated Site Waste Waters by Organic Chelation, Coprecipitation and High Efficiency Particulate Removal

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The effluents of many industrial processes, as well as surface water and groundwater from historically polluted sites, often contain unacceptably high levels of Hg and other toxic trace metals. Although inorganic Hg itself is not bioaccumulative, it is readily converted to methyl mercury in the ambient environment, and so should be removed before discharge. The U.S. EPA has identified mercury-cont ...
