The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Sensor for Monitoring of Particulate Emissions in Diesel Exhaust Gases

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Spectrum, Inc. proposes a novel, low-cost soot sensor for on-board measurement of soot emissions in diesel exhaust gases. The proposed technology is differentiated from existing method by excellent sensitivity, high specificity to carbon particulates, and robustness to fouling by accumulated soot. Potential commercial applications of the real-time sensor include diesel emissions reduction ...

  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 local and regional environments. An instrument capable of continuous monitoring is required to understand diurna ...

  3. Organophosphate Degrading Enzymes

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Agve BioSystems in collaboration with Carl A. Batt propose to develop decon-nanoparticles which will leverage ongoing opportunities in enzyme engineering and the fabrication of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Enhanced performance will be engineered into the system to improve the catalytic degradation of chemical agents. Through an iterative process optimizing the particles and the enzyme ...

  4. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An inexpensive imaging instrument to quickly locate leaks of methane and other greenhouse and VOC gases would reduce that cost and effort expended by industry to comply with EPA regulations. In Phase I of this SBIR program, a new gas leak visualization camera was demonstrated using Agiltron¿s infrared image sensor, which our company has under advanced development and expects to manufacture in la ...

  5. Nano-Enhanced Composite Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) are a key pollution control device in air pollution control devices for small oil and coal-fired industrial boilers. ESPs can operate with an efficiency of 98 to 99% for the removal of mercury and fly ash from the flue gas stream. With an electrostatic precipitator fly ash particles are charged electrically as the flue gas passes through the precipitator allowi ...

  6. Hand-Held Sensor for Remotely Mapping Carbon Dioxide Pollution Sources

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant under the federal Clean Air Act. The ruling allows the EPA to regulate CO2 emissions. Such regulation will entail monitoring a wide variety of pollution sources including automobile exhaust systems, industrial emission sources, and carbon sequestration sites. With presently available technologies, EPA personnel will ...

  7. Online Water Monitoring Utilizing an Automated Microarray Biosensor

    SBC: Constellation Technology            Topic: N/A

    Constellation Technology Corporation (Constellation) proposes the use of an integrated recovery and detection system for online water supply monitoring. The integrated system is designed to efficiently capture and recover pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, and toxins from water supplies and to detect and identify those pathogens in an automated fashion. Current methods of pathogen d ...

  8. Leak Detection and Wireless Telemetry for Water Distribution and Sewerage Systems

    SBC: DC Instruments            Topic: N/A

    According to the study ¿EPA 2000 Community Water System Survey Data on Pipe Assets¿, the infrastructure for water distribution and sewerage systems is aging and requires replacement. In addition, in the EPA¿s September 2002 report ¿Clean Water and Drinking Water Infrastructure Gap Analysis¿, the funding gap for replacing aging pipes was estimated $27 billion a year for the next 20 years. A ...

  9. Testing the Viability of Agricultural Byproducts as a Replacement for Mineral Particles In a Novel, Low embodied Energy, Construction Material

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: N/A

    GreensulateTM is an affordable, biodegradable replacement for polystyrene/polyurethane foam building products, poised to replace petrol-foams in the rigid board insulation market. This patent pending technology uses the vegetative growth stage of a benign fungus (mycelium: P.ostreatus, I.obliquus, F.formentarius A.arvensis) to bond loose particles into a cohesive whole. The fungus operates as a ...

  10. Water 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, like dams, pumping stations and pipelines, there must be vigilance to prevent the water itself from being fouled with toxic/hazardous chemicals. It is virtually impossible to protect every river, stream or lake ...
