  2. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  3. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  4. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been identified as a serious health contaminant in water at levels between 12 and 516 parts per trillion by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. In 2016, the EPA set a lifetime health advisory of 70 parts per trillion for two PFASs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). These compounds come from a variety of so ...

  5. Development of Microwave-assisted Membrane Filtration for Pretreatment of PFAS in Industrial Wastewater

    SBC: Brisea International Development Inc            Topic: 18NCER1C

    EPA launched its drinking water guidelines for PFOA and PFOS in response to rising concerns of these chemicals toward water security. Many conventional wastewater treatment processes are ineffective at removing perfluorochemicals due to their strong resistance to hydrolysis, photolysis, and chemical or microbial degradation. This SBIR project will demonstrate an innovative microwave-assisted membr ...

  6. Development of “Smart” Polymer Nanofiber Mats for Selective and Efficient Removal of PFAS from Landfill Leachate

    SBC: Polykala Technologies, LLC            Topic: 18NCER1C

    In addressing Topic 1C in this solicitation, “Innovative pretreatment technologies for PFAS in industrial wastewater”, this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel nanofiber mats fabricated by electrospun polymer nanofibers for the “smart” (selective) removal of perand polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from landfill leachate. The co-contaminants, low ...

  8. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products, including paints, plastics and tires, and is a $1.5 billion market with a 6 percent growth rate. However, fumed silica producers rely on an energy- intensive, costly and hazardous process. The air pollution resulting from the energy utilized to produce fumed silica is a combination of carbon emissions from the production of raw materials, ene ...

  9. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: Green Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Much attention has been focused of late on phosphorus pollution and algae blooms. However, the problems of phosphorus mining and consumption are much more complex and can be categorized into two distinct areas of concern: (1) phosphorus’ critical role in food production and the dwindling supply of phosphate rock reserves; and (2) the mining and use of phosphate and the environmental impact of ph ...

  10. Surface plasma-based decontamination for pathogen removal from water pipes

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER7A

    More than 280 million Americans depend on the safety of the tap water provided by their local water systems. Ensuring that safe, uncontaminated water flows through the tap means ensuring that the water flowing through the pipes connected to these taps is also kept uncontaminated. However, a common problem that ails most of these water pipes is biofilm formation, causing the water flowing through t ...
