  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...

  4. Power for Animal Wastes System Gasifier

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Animal wastes are a n environmental problem, particularly in fee lot areas were animals are concentrated. If the wastes could be upgraded to a fuel by gasification and then burned inefficient small-scale engines, high value electric power and process heat could be produced, while mitigating environmental problems. The proposed small-scale power generation concept uses innovative methods to pre-t ...

  5. Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Based APU (QRCFC-APU)

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are over 480,000 trucks on the US roads, and each vehicle produces up to 20 tons CO2, 420 lbs of CO and 250 lbs of nitrous oxides per year, while idling to produce auxiliary power needed for the driver¿s comfort. A Quiet Reliable and Compact Fuel Cell Base APU (QRCFC-APU) is proposed to significantly reduce these emissions. QRCFC overcomes the challenges with the diesel fuel reforming and ...

  6. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Polymer composites are widely used for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion. However, unlike metals, structural polymers are not electrically conductive; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP). Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmental and economic chall ...

  7. Fine and Course Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitoring

    SBC: Baldwin Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Baldwin Environmental Inc. (BEI) successfully completed an SBIR Phase I project that demonstrated the feasibility of designing and producing a Fine and Coarse Particulate Monitoring System (FCPMCEMS). This system simultaneously measures and reports mass concentrations of fine and coarse particulate material using Atmospheric Dispersion Simulation and Beta Attenuation Monitoring (BAM). A design a ...

  8. On-Line, Near Real Time Water Security BioMonitoring System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an innovative biosensor system for near real time, on-line monitoring of water for the presence of pathogens and biotoxins. The proposed optical biosensing approach possesses a unique combination of features that make it ideal for meeting the requirements of a water analysis system. Notably. 1) it does not require the use of labels for detection (such as fluorescent, enzym ...

  9. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blends for Emission Reduction


    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the EPA Clean Diesel Truck/Bus and low sulfur diesel rule and non-road diesel rule. Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover with extend full implementation. EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sources and also interested in new bio-diesel implementation tech ...

  10. Plastic Oil Bottle Recycling

    SBC: CRI Recycling Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Various oily wastes are generated while performing vehicle maintenance operations, including used oil drained from the engine, the oil filter, and even oil absorbent the is used to clean up oil that has spilled on the floor. At one time these wastes were placed in landfills. Concerns with oil from these waste migrating into surface and ground water has prompted a number state and federal regulat ...
