  1. Mill Trials of a Novel Formaldehyde-Free Soy-Based Wood Adhesive for Making Plywood

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, and flooring, and are predominately made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. A new formaldehyde-free, environmentally friendly wood adhesive that mainly consists of abundant, renewable and readily available soybean flour and a novel curing agent have been developed in a laboratory. The novel cu ...

  2. Handheld Detection System for TCE and PCE

    SBC: DEFIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: TopicC

    The concept of this SBIR project is to employ a hand-held sensor system to monitor groundwater. This concept recognizes the need for users to query field sensors remotely to report on concentration of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE). The missing part of this concept is a low-power sensor system that can reliably analyze groundwater for these contaminants. Defian ...

  3. Advanced Mixed Oxidation and Inclusion Technology

    SBC: ENCHEM ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: TopicI

    Coal tar contaminants, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) currently are difficult to treat in a timely and cost-efficient manner. The generally poor performance of conventional PAH treatment schemes, such as soil flushing or bioremediation, has led to research application of innovative in situ remediation methods. This project focuses on the in situ destruction of recalcitrant coal tar ...

  4. Performance and Design Development for Compost technology used in Green Infrastructure, Green Building, and Urban Storm Water Applications

    SBC: Filtrexx International, LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Green builders and designers, urban planners, engineers and architects, and watershed manager working with green infrastructure, low impact development (LID), storm water management, water quality improvement, total maximum daily load (TMDL) designated stream segments, and carbon footprint reduction programs need more high performance, cost-effective, green technologies to design and implement in ...

  5. Silane-Terminated Aliphatic Polycarbonate Dendrimer Solutions for Environmentally Green Coatings


    Polyurethane (PU) coatings continue to be a detriment to the environment. As long as compliance leads to higher costs for coatings manufacturers and applicators, tighter regulation will lead to increased resistance by these companies or ultimately will shift production to less-regulated areas. The ideal situation would be if environmentally friendly practices led to lower costs for coatings manufa ...

  6. Residential Energy Optimization Algorithms

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Design Collaborative, LLC            Topic: TopicA

    How much energy can be saved by opening a window instead of running an air conditioner? How does this affect the air quality of a home? With rising energy costs and as concern for the environment grows more widespread, the need to conserve energy resources is becoming more apparent. Although many alternative energy technologies have been introduced, these can prove to be nearly useless without the ...

  7. Development of Micronized Polyurethane as a Comprehensive, 100 Percent Recycled Resin for Green Building Materials and Systems

    SBC: Mobius Technologies, Inc.            Topic: TopicA

    Engineered wood products, such as plywood and oriented strand board (OSB), are a large and growing segment of the building materials market. They are versatile, inexpensive, and fit well within a forest products strategy of tree farms based on rapidly growing, readily replenished crops. However, they require the use of resins with a manufacturing process that has negative environmental impacts. Th ...

  8. Antimicrobial-Coated Granular Filter Media for Drinking Water Treatment

    SBC: Coating Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: TopicE

    Coating Systems Laboratories, Inc., of Chandler, Arizona, has developed a quaternary ammonium chloride (QAC) coating with antimicrobial properties that may be attached to common granular filter media such as sand and zeolite. The potential for coating filter media to improve drinking water treatment with respect to both disinfection efficiency and the production of disinfection by-products could i ...

  9. Combined Gas and Particle Measurement System

    SBC: AIR QUALITY DESIGN INC.            Topic: TopicG

    Real-time measurements of particle species, including NO3-, NH4+, and SO4=, are needed at multiple locations in and beyond the NCORE network to understand pollutant fluxes and dynamics of PM2.5, and to constrain atmospheric models. Existing methods have proved problematic for widespread autonomous deployment creating, an opportunity for development of a reliable, autonomous approach. The innovatio ...

  10. A Hydrosol Concentrator for Improved Measurement of Microbial Pathogens in Drinking Water

    SBC: AlburtyLab, Inc.            Topic: TopicJ

    The importance of fast, reliable detection of pathogens in drinking water in the United States and worldwide, is increasing rapidly due to rising populations and increasing environmental degradation, as well as the threat of terrorism. Although the technology readiness level of rapid detection methods for pathogens in water has increased dramatically in recent years, rapid, automated sample concen ...
