  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. CATALYTIC ADSORBENTS FOR THE ABATEMENT OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS

    SBC: Aircor Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL EMISSION CONTROL PROCESS FOR CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS PRODUCES NO TOXIC OR CORROSIVE SECONDARY GASES. CATALYTIC ADSORBENT MATERIALS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DESTROY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBON IN GASEOUS EFFLUENTS WITHOUT THE RELEASE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID AND CHLORINE GAS. INSTEAD THE ADSORBENT WILL FIX THE CHLORINE ATOMS AS HARMLESS NONVOLATILE CHLORIDE SALT AT TEMPERATURES W ...

  4. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. REDUCTION OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION BY MEMBRANE STRIPPING OOF WATERBORNE RADON GAS

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    RADON-222 IN INDOOR AIR HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A PERVASIVE POLLUTANT AND A SIGNIFICANT HEALTH THREAT. ARETE TECHNOLOGIES PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A MEMBRANE-BASED SYSTEMFOR MITIGATING THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM TO WHICH WATERBORNE RADON GAS CAN CONTRIBUTE. THE SYSTEM, WHICH OPERATES AT WATER SUPPLY PRESSURE, AVOIDS THE PROBLEMS OF RADIOACTIVITY BUILDUP AND SPENT CARBON DISPOSAL ASSOCIATED WIT ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A NATURAL OAT-DERIVED OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

    SBC: Basic Bio Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING HYDROPHOBIC MATERIALS SUCH AS OILS. INADDITION, THESE FRACTIONS CAN FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE EMULSIFIERS, FORMIN ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. EFFECTS OF COSOLVENT ADDITIONS ON THE BIODEGRADABILIITY OF HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT PAH COMPOUNDS IN SOIL

    SBC: Biotrol Inc            Topic: N/A

    ADDITION OF COSOLVENTS TO WATER INCREASES THE SOLUBILITY OF HYDROPHOBIC CONTAMINANTS BY SHIFTING THE ADSORPTION EQUILIBRIUM TO FAVOR HIGHER AQUEOUS PHASE CONCENTRATIONS. INCREASING THEIR WATER SOLUBILITY MAKES CONTAMINANTS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR BIODEGRADATION. WHILE IT IS OFTEN SPECULATEDTHAT LOW RATES OR LACK OF BIODEGRADATION IS CAUSED BY LOW AQUEOUS SOLUBILITY, NO STUDIES HAVE BEEN PERFORMED TO D ...
