  1. Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to determine if chemicals used in commerce may have hormonal effects in humans. There are mo ...

  2. Arsenic Removal System for Residential and Point-of-Use Applications

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

    Arsenic contamination in drinking water is a severe health risk to populations throughout the world, including the United States. In recognition of this threat, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently lowered its water standard for arsenic from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. This change is expected to impact 10 percent of U.S. community drinking water systems. The operators of small water sy ...

  3. Active-Core Optical Fiber Ammonia Sensor

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

    Oxides of nitrogen, or NOx, are common air pollutants in congested urban areas. NOx contributes to a variety of environmental problems, including ground-level ozone (smog), acid rain, and visibility impairment. NOx emissions are generated by motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and electric power plants. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 required that stationary sources, such as power plan ...

  4. Impregnated Clay Sorbents for Mercury Removal From Flue Gas

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

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced its intention to regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants because of mercury¿s impact on the health and development of young children and fetuses. The estimated cost of controlling mercury emissions from power plants runs from $2 to $5 billion annually, with a significant fraction of the total dedicated to activated carb ...

  5. Low-Cost Mercury Sorbents Derived From Waste Tires

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research project, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., addresses two important environmental problems: (1) removal and recovery of mercury from combustion/incineration flue gas, and (2) reprocessing of waste tires into value-added products. Coal combustion and incineration of municipal and hazardous wastes results in air pollution due to emissions of trace amounts of heavy metals. Because of t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Acoustically Excited Inertial Tympanum Particulate Matter Nanobalance

    SBC: ANALYTICAL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Improving particulate matter (PM) analysis technology for on-vehicle measurements remains a significant challenge. The requirement for accurate and highly precise real-time measurement, capable of on-vehicle applications, is rapidly increasing. Expanding demand for compliance measurements, and assessing and evaluating engine performance development and emergent exhaust aftertreatment technologie ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Nano Alumina Arsenic Filter

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Improved methods are sought for removing arsenic from drinking water to meet the new 10 ¿g/L standard. Argonide Corporation proposes to develop point-of-entrance and point-of-use (POE/POU) filters that would efficiently remove arsenic down to this limit. The active ingredient of this filter would be a new form of ¿activated¿ alumina, with nano-sized (approximately 2 nm diameter) fibrous dimen ...
