  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHLY RELIABLE COST-EFFECTIVE CONTINUOUS MCONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITOR

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1985 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. A Sensitive and Affordable Compact Ammonia Monitor

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

    Ammonia has an important role in the chemistry of the atmospheric environment and air quality. Ammonia emissions are a major environmental concern, yet they remain poorly quantified. There is a need for a sensitive ammonia instrument to monitor emissions and evaluate their effects on the local and regional environments. An instrument capable of continuous monitoring is required to understand diurn ...

  3. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared (IR) imaging is the best method for detecting leaks of pollutant gases, but current technology based on cooled IR imagers is far too expensive ($75,000 to $150,000) for everyday field use by those who need it to meet regulatory limits¿electric and petrochemical utilities, manufacturing plants, and businesses such as supermarkets. Agiltron will demonstrate a new class of IR imager instrum ...

  4. Monitoring the Effects of Nanoparticles on Human Health Using an Inexpensive Fathead Minnow Microarray

    SBC: EcoArray, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of nanoparticles has increased in manufacturing, industry, and commercial products over the past two decades. As a result, governmental agencies, industry, and academia worldwide have formed advisory groups to evaluate exposure and toxicity issues surrounding the potential adverse effects of nanomaterials on human health. However, assessing the potential effects of nanoparticles on human h ...

  5. Advance Manure Management for Small Dairy Farms

    SBC: Avatar Alternative Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project is for the experimental operation and performance review of a pilot-scale anaerobic digester and effluent treatment system for small dairy farms. This would be one of the first digesters built on a dairy farm with a herd size of 50-100 heads. Although digesters are considered to be a valuable addition to a farms manure management strategy, several sources have stated that far ...

  6. AN ACTIVATED SLUDGE MODIFICATION TO ELIMINATE BULKING, MINIMIZE REACTOR VOLUME AND ENHANCE NUTRIENT REMOVAL

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MODIFICATION OF THE ACTIVATED SLUDGE PROCESS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO ELIMINATE SLUDGE BULKING, MINIMIZE REACTOR VOLUMES, AND ENHANCE NUTRIENT REMOVALS. THE FLOW SHEET UTILIZES TWO SEGMENTS IN SERIES. THE FIRST EMPLOYS A 10 MINUTE MIXED LIQUOR CONTACTOR TO ADSORB 50-60% OF THE SOLUBLE CARBON SUBSTRATE. CONTACTOR MIXED LIQUOR IS FLOTATION SEPARATED AND DISCHARGED TO A SEPARATE AERATION REACTOR FOR M ...

  7. Sensitive, Quantitative, and Portable Anatoxin Assay using Aptamers and Quantum Dot Nanoshell Reporting

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project directly addresses an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for improved detection and measurement techniques including screening kits for algal neurotoxins (especially cyanobacterial anatoxin) and cytotoxins in drinking water systems. Bloom-forming cyanobacteria have been observed in water bodies, including drinking water reservoirs all over the world. Several ...

  8. SLUDGE SOLIDS

    SBC: John Brown Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MUNICIPAL WASTE TREATMENT PRODUCES SLUDGES RICH IN COMPLEX ORGANIC CHEMICALS THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A CHEMICAL RAW MATERIAL AND RESOURCE ANALOGOUS TO WOOD PULP, AG AGRICULTURAL WASTES, OR PETROLEUM. CURRENT DISPOSAL P PRACTICES OF LANDFILLING, OCEAN DISPOSAL AND EVEN INCINERAR ATION DISREGARD THESE VALUES AND AT BEST RECOVER ENERGY (ANDPOSSIBLY METALS). IT IS PROPOSED TO CARRY OUT SEVERAL CL ...

  9. COMPOSTING AS A WASTE MANAGEMENT ALTERNATIVE FOR ORGANIC CHEMICAL WASTE

    SBC: Cal Recovery Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE THE TECHNICAL, ECONOMIC, AND ENVIRONMENTAL FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMPOSTING AS AN ALTERNATIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE FOR TREATING, DETOXIFYING, AND BIOSTABILIZING ORGANIC CHEMICAL WASTES. SELECTED BIODEGRADABLE HAZARDOUS WASTES WILL BE SUBJECTED TO THE COMPOST PROCESS TO ASCERTAIN THE DEGREE OF DETOXIFICATION AND THE RESPONSIBLE MICROORGANISM. CONCEPTUAL DESIGN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1985 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. FEASIBILITY OF IN-SITU BIODEGRADATION OF CHLORINATED ETHENES IN CONTAMINATED AQUIFERS

    SBC: Cambridge Analytical Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE CHLORINATED ETHENES, VINYL CHLORIDE, VINYLIDINE CHLORIDE, TRICHLOROETHYLENE, AND TETRACHLOROETHYLENE HAVE BEEN DETECTED IN GROUNDWATER THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. VINYL CHLORIDE AND VINYLIDINE CHLORIDE ORIGINATE FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTE DISPOSAL SITES AS WASTE PRODUCTS OF PLASTIC MANUFACTURING AND TRICHLOROETHYLENE IS WIDELY USED AS AN INDUSTRIAL SOLVENT. SINCE THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC, ...
