  1. Disposable Micromachined Flow Immunoassay for Field Detection of Contaminants

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

    The use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect contaminants such as solvents, fuels, and pesticides in soil and water samples is now well established. Although ELISA and related methods can facilitate analysis of samples, several washing and separation steps are involved that require 30 to 120 minutes per sample to reach equilibrium. Recently, near infrared fluorescence immunoassa ...

  2. Development of a Multianalyte Biosensor Instrument

    SBC: Ergopedia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will develop a multianalyte biosensor field screening instrument (MBFI). The MBFI has the potential to reduce the annual cost of environmental analyses in the United States by more than $20 million and to reduce the analysis turnaround time from approximately 19 days to less than 15 minutes. The major barrier to the development of a biosensor instrument for environmental mea ...

  3. Development of a Low Toxicity Treatment for Zebra Mussels

    SBC: Pharmacognetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zebra mussels cause an estimated $5 billion in economic damages annually. They clog water intake pipes, damage water supplies, threaten native fish and aquatic species, and promote the mobilization of toxic materials into the food chain. Chlorination is presently the most common treatment for zebra mussels. However, chlorine causes many serious environmental risks, thus necessitating the develo ...

  4. An Innovative Photocatalytic Process for Silver Recovery

    SBC: Wangtec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The photographic industry consumes about 70 million troy ounces of silver annually. The technology used to recover the silver from concentrated solution is more than 40 years old. However, investigators project that, based on industry experience, as much as 20% of this silver is lost in the wash water and goes unrecovered. The toxicity of silver in the effluent is a growing concern in the United ...

  5. Silica Materials for Mercury Recovery From Wastewater

    SBC: TPL, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A number of industrial processes generate wastewater with mercury contamination. Existing cleanup processes have difficulties in achieving low mercury discharge limits, especially in the presence of competing metal ions already below their discharge limits. Commercial ion exchange media are not selective for mercury, so other metal ions compete with mercury for binding sites. Consequently, excess ...

  6. Novel Fiber Optic Biosensor for Pesticide Residue Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency

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

    Developments in on-site spent solvent recovery have implications for reducedenvironmental pollution in the dry cleaning, furniture and paint manufacturingindustries as well as in a range of commercial services. Effluents from solventrecovery operations include fugitive emissions, vent stack gases and water/solvent mixtures. At present, the scale of solvent-recovery operations incertain industrie ...

  8. Self-Monitoring Surveillance System for Prestressing Tendons

    SBC: Construction Technology            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1995 Nuclear Regulatory Commission

    SBC: Ecomat, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of multi-component waste products provides an opportunity to produce aroofing material with an excellent balance of cost and properties. Simulatedslate tiles comprised of fly ash, other reinforcing filler, and thermoset hybridresin have been modelled. Based on initial market reactions to preliminary cost,physical properties data, and appearance, this application appears promising.Ecomat ...
