  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Outdoor Biomass Gasifier Hydronic Heater (OBGHH)

    SBC: Chip Energy            Topic: N/A

    America needs a clean, affordable, reliable and sustainable product or system to obtain heat for residences in cold climates using renewable, carbon-neutral, plentiful, low-cost biomass fuels of diverse types found close to the location of usage. The available biomass could heat hundreds of thousands of homes, and costly natural gas could be directed to higher-value usage. Gasifiers are devices t ...

  7. Small Scale Ethanol Drying

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This program exceeded all key milestones. Using cellulose Waste, CMS demonstrated novel ethanol drying membranes via small scale dephlegmation process that yields fuel grade ethanol (FGE) at a lower cost than large switch grass ethanol plants. This success yields positive value for cellulose waste. We achieved targeted EPA goals of developing low cost environmentally friendly systems to enhance re ...

  8. Controlling Cooking Effluents with a Self-Cleaning Adsorbent

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In many urban areas the emission of particulate matter (PM2.5) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from commercial kitchens contribute significantly to a failure to achieve air quality goals. These emissions are chiefly secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) formed by condensation of fats, oils, and other organic materials vaporized during the cooking process. In some instances, these emissions can ...

  9. Security Monitoring Using Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Clean drinking water is a critical component of the United States infrastructure and is therefore a potential target for terrorists. In addition to physical attacks to the water network including dams, pumping stations and pipelines, there must be vigilance to prevent the water itself from being fouled through the addition of toxic/hazardous chemicals. It is virtually impossible to protect every r ...

  10. Electrochemical Treatment and Recycling of Spent Perchlorate-Contaminated Ion-Exchange Regeneraton Brime

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Eltron Research & Development, Inc. (Eltron) proposes to develop an ion-selective, polymer membrane electrode capable of detecting perchlorate in water at low parts per billion (ppb) concentrations. With the discovery of perchlorate contamination in an increasing number of drinking water sources and an increase in regulation of perchlorate in drinking water, some wells are shut down because no cos ...
