  1. Low Cost NOx Abatement in Off-Road Sources


    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 ...

  2. Decontamination Wipes for First Responders

    SBC: Entropic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of chemical or biological (CB) attack is real, and there is a recognized need for improved technologies to better respond to these situations. During a CB emergency, first responder units are critical for handling the emergency, and then restoring the environment where it occurred. After a threat has been contained, the first responders, donned in protective gear, must decontaminate the ...

  3. Identifying and Monitoring Environmental Toxicity Using Ceriodaphnia Microarrays

    SBC: Eon Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The current U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SBIR solicitation states that technology is needed to better identify and monitor sources of pollution and protect water quality. Microarrays may be particularly well suited to identifying environmental toxicity because of their ability to determine both specific and global effects of toxicity. So far, however, microarrays have been employed m ...

  4. Development of Novel Proteins to Enhance Cellulose Deconstruction for Ethanol Production

    SBC: Expansyn Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fuels derived from cellulosic biomass offer an alternative to conventional energy sources that supports national economic growth, national energy security, and environmental goals. In the 2007 State of the Union address, President Bush called for 35 billion gallons of alternative fuel use in the United States by 2017, which would replace 20 percent of the nation¿s petroleum consumption. Cellulosi ...

  5. Development of and Improved Detector for use with a Gas Chromatograph to Measure NOx and PAN in the Atmosphere

    SBC: Fitz Aerometric Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Although nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is a priority pollutant, the Federal Reference Method is based on the chemiluminescent measurement of nitric oxide (NO) with the assumption that NO2 is the difference between nitrogen oxides (NOx) reduced to NO with a converter and the NO originally in the sampled air. These converters also are effective in reducing a wide variety of nitrogenous species found in pol ...

  6. Wireless Electrochemical ClO2 Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recognizing the importance of ClO2 in disinfection and decontamination operations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had identified the need for portable, accurate and field-rugged chlorine dioxide (ClO2) monitors for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. To address the EPA's concern and need, this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will contin ...

  7. LSPR Nano-Immunosensor for Simple and Sensitive Water Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is an ever-present need to know what is in our nations water in order to protect our people and the environment. The issue of ensuring the safety of drinking water has become more critical in light of homeland security concerns. Water systems must guard against contamination from typical wastes, and be able to monitor for bacteria, toxins, spores, and viruses that can be introduced into drin ...

  8. Surface Plasma Electrode for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Johansson Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    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 ...

  9. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this project is to complete the research and development of an innovative process technology to enhance the economics of biodiesel production, through upgrading the byproduct glycerol to a propane fuel (LPG), which (a) is widely used today, (b) has an existing distribution system, (c) can accommodate the large volumes of byproduct glycerol, and (d) which has attractive economic ...

  10. Minerals Recovery of Copper Stamp Sand on Lake Superior Coastline for Use as Raw Material in the Manufacture of Roofing Shingles: Phase 2

    SBC: Lesktech Limited            Topic: N/A

    Stamp sands (a waste tailing product) from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan copper mining days were examined in the Phase I portion of this study for its application possibilities in the asphalt roofing shingle market as a laptop granule. Through rigorous testing we found the larger particle size portion of the byproduct to be economically and environmentally applicable as roofing granules (G-sand) ...
