  1. Process-intensified Low-Cost Biodiesel Production using Meat Rendering Waste, Greases, and Food Wastes

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biodesel is a fuel that is made from processing vegetable oil or animal fats into a liquid fuel that can be combusted in a standard diesel engine. Biodiesel is made from a renewable resource such as soybeans or tallow, does not contribute to global warming, and can be made from domestic resources. However, the growth of the biodiesel industry has been slowed because the current production processe ...

  2. Electrochemical Treatment and Recycling of Spent Perchlorate-Contaminated Ion-Exchange Regeneration Brine

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 07NCERD1

    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 ...

  3. Sensitive, Quantitative, and Portable Anatoxin Assay using Aptamers and Quantum Dot Nanoshell Reporting

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: 07NCERD1

    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 w ...

  4. Surface Plasma Electrode for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Johansson Industries, Inc.            Topic: 07NCERF1

    Electrostatic precipitators are widely used for the removal of particulate matter from boiler exhaust gases. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgation of National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters will require industry to install many new high-performance precipitators on such sourc ...

  5. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 07NCERG1

    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 in ...

  6. A Sensitive and Affordable Compact Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 07NCERG1

    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 ...

  7. Low Cost NOx Abatement in Off-Road Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 07NCERH1

    Nitrogen oxides (NOx) contribute to the formation of ground level ozone, aerosols, and acid rain. Considerable progress has been made in reducing emissions from stationary and highway sources. New emissions standards will require that new off-road (non-road) diesel engines achieve emissions of NOx and other species comparable to those from on-road sources. Currently, there are no inexpensive, effe ...

  9. Inexpensive Drinking Water Chlorination Unit for Small Communities

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 07NCERM1

    More than 250 drinking water systems exist for small communities in Puerto Rico that serve between 25 and 500 individuals. These water systems fall outside of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and, thus, have insufficient water treatment systems or no water treatment systems. Water sources for these communities are from groundwater and surface water with flow rates up to 50,000 gallons ...

  10. Water Security Monitoring using Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 07NCERN1

    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 ...
