  1. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: 06NCERB3

    Because of the relatively high cost of biomass feedstocks compared to fossil fuels, biomass conversion processes must be highly efficient to provide a near-term contribution to the U.S. energy balance. Biodiesel is recognized as an important potential fuel, which is obtained by relatively simple esterification of fats or seed oils (soybean, rapeseed, etc.). The production of each gallon of biodi ...

  2. High-Volume Hexavalent-Free Processing of Hard Coatings

    SBC: Xtalic Corporation            Topic: 06NCERD1

    Xtalic Corporation possesses a new technology for controlling the nanostructure of electrodeposited metal coatings. Through precise control of the metallic grain size at nanometer length scales, this technology can create coatings with precisely tailored properties. These properties are generally very favorable, and new properties and suites of properties can be achieved in alloy systems where t ...

  3. Low-Cost Instrument for Long-Term Monitoring of Hazardous Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD5

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has stated a need for technologies and instruments to monitor and warn of the presence of toxic contaminants in drinking water. An innovative device that could detect, identify, and localize hazardous chemical contaminants in drinking water would be immensely valuable to water utility operators, emergency response personnel, and other decision-making offici ...

  4. Wireless Electrochemical CIO2 Monitor for Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD5

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified the need for an accurate and field-rugged instrument to monitor chlorine dioxide (ClO2) for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. The proposed Phase I study will evaluate the feasibility of designing and fabricating an advanced electrochemical ClO2 sensor, utilizing integrated solid polymer electrolyte proton-conducting me ...

  5. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    Acrolein (CH2=CHCHO) has been identified by the U.S. Clean Air Act as a hazardous air pollutant because of its adverse health effect, particularly on respiratory systems. There are both anthropogenic and natural sources of acrolein in the environment. Acrolein is produced by combustion sources (e.g. vehicle exhaust, prescribed agricultural burning, cigarette smoke) and industrial sources, includi ...

  6. On-Line, Near Real Time Water Security BioMonitoring System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an innovative biosensor system for near real time, on-line monitoring of water for the presence of pathogens and biotoxins. The proposed optical biosensing approach possesses a unique combination of features that make it ideal for meeting the requirements of a water analysis system. Notably. 1) it does not require the use of labels for detection (such as fluorescent, enzym ...

  7. A TEQ Based Dioxin Kit Utilizing Fluorescent Aptmers

    SBC: Eno River Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Eno River Labs, LLC proposes to develop and on-site testing kit for dioxins that uses fluorescently tagged ssDNA aptamers for selective binding and subsequent screening/quantitative analysis of dioxin in soil sample. Current dioxin field test kits are immunoassay based, which are insufficiently specific and sometimes unreliable. Therefore, reliable dioxin testing requires laboratory tests, which ...

  8. Hazardous Waste Management Using a New Sparker Process

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity of this proposal is to develop a new ¿Sparker¿ process for treating organic hazardous contaminants in water and liquid waste, including persistent and bioaccumulative and toxic chemical (PBT¿s), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH¿s). Sparker technology also has potential for in-situ treatment of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL¿s) and sludge. Sparkers ...

  9. Field Rugged, Portable H2O2 Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will support the development of a field-portable instrument for monitoring and controlling hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration during building decontamination after accidental or purposeful exposure to hazardous biological materials. The goal of Phases I through III is to develop a product that enables accurate real-time H2O2 measurements over the concentration range of 1-10, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Novel Polymeric Building Decontamination Technologies

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX has previously evaluated the efficacy of polymeric materials in the removal of chemical and biological agents form surfaces. The system previously evaluated showed better than 2-log removal of simulants for both chemical and biological agents. TIAX is proposing under this SBIR proposal to significantly broaden the scope of the technology through application of proprietary systems to demon ...
