The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Handheld FRET Aptamer Sensor to Satisy the Beaches Act

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the ultrasensitivity of fluorescence-based detection with the high affinity and selectivity of DNA aptamers as improved replacements for antibodies to detect fecal indicator organisms in fresh and marine recreational waters. Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) aptamer assays for fecal indicator organisms will be demonstrat ...

  2. CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER.

    SBC: Photox International            Topic: N/A

    CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER. CURRENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES FOR CONTROLLING SUCH CONTAMINATION ARE LIMITED TO AERATION, ADSORPTION, AND LINKING. A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE IS PHOTOCHEMICAL OXIDATION, BUT THIS PROCESS IS AS YET UNOPTIMIZED, POORLY UNDERSTOOD, AND LARGELY LIMITED. PHOT ...

  3. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  5. A Micro-Variable Circular Orifice (MVOC) Fuel Injector with Variable Spray Angles and Patterns for Reducting NOx Emissions from Diesel Engines

    SBC: QUANTLOGIC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Diesel engines are widely used due to their high fuel efficiency. However, conventional diesel engines have high NOx and soot emissions. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for NOx reduction is less accepted by the construction industry due to complexity and cost. In-cylinder NOx reduction is more desirable. When low temperature combustion and/or premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI) combus ...

    SBIR Phase I 2008 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Hand-Held Fluorometer Using Selex DNA Aptamer Strip Assays to Detect Cryptosporidium and Encephlitozoon

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) proposes to develop receptors composed of DNA oligomers ("aptamers") from a combinatorial library for binding and detecting Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts and three species of Encephalitozoon spores. Aptamers will be generated by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by EXponential enrichment (SELEX) combinatorial chemistry technique. SELEX aptamers ...

    SBIR Phase I 2001 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. SELEX DNA Aptamer Filter for Removal of Pesticides and Chloroaromatics

    SBC: OMNISITE BIODIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OmniSite BioDiagnostics, Inc. (OmniSite) proposes to develop artificial receptors composed of DNA oligomers (called "aptamers") for binding and removal of organophosphorous and chlorinated pesticides. Aptamers will be generated by the systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment (SELEX) combinatorial chemistry technique. SELEX aptamers offer several major advantages over antibody tech ...

    SBIR Phase I 2002 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    "As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship. However, in adopting this strategy there will be an increasing need to implement a more cost effective, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A Real-Time, Sensitive and Affordable Fast-Response Elemental Carbon Monitor

    SBC: EcoChem Analytics            Topic: G

    "This SBIR Phase I project will develop an affordable, sensitive, fast-response solution to real-time monitoring of Elemental Carbon (EC). EcoChem will employ a proven sensor technology, the photoemission aerosol sensor (PAS) to detect EC. The PAS photoionizes carbonaceous aerosols with a unique excimer lamp [Burtscher, 1992] whose wavelength is chosen to selectively ionize EX and polycyclic aro ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Handheld FRET-Aptamer Sensor for Chem-Bio Threats

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: J

    "Operational Technology Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the ultrasensitivity of fluorescence-based detection with the high selectivity of synthetic DNA aptamers as replacements for antibodies to detect chemical and biological (CB) terrorism threats in 10 minutes or less from a variety of swabbed surfaces and liquid matrices. OpTech has previously provided strong proof-of-concept for a rap ...
