  1. Chromium-Free Conversion Coating Technologies for Light Metals

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

    Improving corrosion control is a significant technical challenge that must be addressed before lightweight metal alloys of aluminum and magnesium can be more widely used in manufacturing industries such as automobile, aerospace, and metal finishing. Use of lightweight metal alloys would provide many advantages for these industries. For example, a 40 percent reduction in the weight of an automobile ...

  2. A New Biosensor for Rapid Identification of Bacterial Pathogens

    SBC: ECHO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Rapid, handheld, or portable instrumentation for determining the quality of natural waters, recreational waters, and distributed and treated supplies does not currently exist. Echo Technologies, Inc., completed a Phase I project that demonstrated a new approach for the identification of bacteria in aqueous systems. The approach uses bacteriophage as the molecular recognition element. Bacteriophage ...

  3. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services called lead "the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States." Lead poisoning affects 890,000 U.S. children between the ages of 1 and 5, causing aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, and learning problems. In adults, increased lead levels have been linked to kidney problems, high blood press ...

  4. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II project, Edenspace Systems Corporation seeks to demonstrate the use of transgenic plants that exude significant amounts of a rapidly biodegradable chelator-citric acid-from their roots, enabling a cost savings of more than 70 percent in lead phytoextraction. A citrate synthase (CS) transgene was placed under the control of different plant promoters to overexpress the gene in roots ...

  5. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services called lead ¿the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.¿ Lead exposure can cause premature birth and impair a child¿s mental and physical development. In adults, lead exposure can cause kidney damage, high blood pressure, and other problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates tha ...

  6. Development and Preliminary Validation of a Rapid Progestin-Based Endocrine Disruption Screening Assay

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns regarding the presence of endocrine disruptors in food, water, or other environmental media as well as concerns about the potential risk they pose to humans and wildlife have been growing in recent years. Passage in 1996 of the Food Quality Protection Act and Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act reflected these concerns and required the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop ...

  7. Validation of a Rapid Progestin-Based Endocrine Disruption Screening Assay

    SBC: Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fort Environmental Laboratories, Inc.'s Phase I research project resulted in the development and standardization of an assay that tests substances that might disturb reproductive and developmental processes in animals by interfering with the endocrine system. The primary goal of the proposed research was to validate and commercialize the Xenopus laevis oocyte maturation germinal vesicle breakdown ...

  9. Recycling of Municipal and Industrial Solid Waste

    SBC: Resource Recovery Corporation of West Michigan            Topic: N/A

    The cost to the United States foundry industry to landfill the 12 billion pounds of spent sand and 4 billion pounds of process residual fines is approaching $300 million per year. The foundry industry has spent considerable effort on recycling the spent foundry sand that originally was used to produce molds in which the ferrous and nonferrous (primarily aluminum) parts were produced. However, ther ...

  10. Rapid, Specific, Sensor System for Pathogens in Water

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is an important need for a water-monitoring technology that is capable of detecting a wide range of microbial and viral pathogens and their toxins. TPL, Inc., proposes an instrument system that could be used both in the laboratory or in the field for analyzing water quality for a wide range of contaminants, including microbial pathogens, Cryptosporidium, and viral pathogens. The sensor syste ...
