  1. Multiplexed Chemical Sensor for Water Security

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to provide the EPA with a chemical sensor thatn can be multiplerxed into water distributon systems to provide early warning of poisoned water supples. This will be accomplished by developing surface-enhanced Raman (SER) sensors than can be integrated into water supply systems and coupled to a central Paman analyzer via fiber optics. ...

  2. Fiberoptic Diisocyanate Personal Monitoring Device

    SBC: LIGHTLINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 04NCERD2

    LightLine Technologies, Inc., plans to develop a highly sensitive fiber optic personal monitoring device, similar to a sampling badge, targeted for the simple and convenient measurement of total isocyanate and diisocyanate (I&DCY) airborne exposure. With very modest sampling processing (controlled heating), sensing of all types of I&DCYs will be possible and is the primary goal of this res ...

  3. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) Within An E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: 04NCERG1

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills and leaching into the water supply. Because of these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on manual hand sorting or differential density ...

  4. Multiplexed Chemical Sensor for Water Security

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: 04NCERI1

    The goal of this research project (through Phase III) is to develop a chemical sensor that can be multiplexed into water distribution systems to provide early warning of poisoned water supplies. This will be accomplished by developing surface-enhanced Raman (SER) sensors that can be integrated into water supply systems and coupled to a central Raman analyzer via fiber optics. In Phase I, Real-Time ...

  5. Demonstration of a Continuous, Real-Time PM2.5 Chemical Speciation Monitor Based on an Aerosol Mas Spectrometer

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

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project addresses the need for improved monitoring technologies for continuous particulate mass and chemical speciation of ambient aerosols. Aerodyne Research, Inc. will develop a prototype Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACMS) that measures ambient aerosol mass and chemical composition of non-refractory submicron aerosol particles in real-tim ...

  6. Sterilizing Medical Equipment With One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to investigate the feasibility and commercial potential of using the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDPTM) as a low-temperature sterilization process for medical equipment. Current sterilization technologies that pose a risk to health care workers and the environment are being phased out of use (e.g., ethylene oxide sterilization). T ...

  7. Ultrasensitive Biosensor for Detecting Bioxotins in Drinking Water

    SBC: BIOSCALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a novel MicroElectroMechanical Systems-based sensor capable of detecting low levels of biotoxins in drinking water. An automated detection system based on this technology will fulfill a critical need in homeland security threat management. Central to the proposed sensing approach is a resonating microstructure optimized for sensitive system ...

  8. Use of a Genetically Modified Organism To Assess Sewer Line Integrity

    SBC: BioTrackers            Topic: N/A

    When sewer exfiltration leaks into the environment, the entry of fecal bacteria into groundwater and surface water increases health risks. Leaking sewers also are suspected sources of fecal contamination in many surface waters designated for total maximum daily load (TMDL) plans. Development of TMDL plans has been hindered by the lack of a reliable and cost-effective method to identify fecal con ...

  9. MEMS-Based Volatile Organic Compound Monitor

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems, Inc. (BMS), proposes to develop a MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) based volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor by integrating analyte-specific polymer films with SiC-AlN microresonators. In this research project, BMS and the Naval Research Laboratory will integrate microresonators and polymer films with functional groups sensitive to aromatic compounds (e.g., benzene an ...

  10. Novel Ceramic Membrane Bioreactor for Low-Flow Systems

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improved low-flow (50,000 gallons per day) sanitary wastewater treatment systems are needed. CeraMem Corporation¿s proposed approach includes a membrane bioreactor (MBR) using fully proven biological processes for biological oxygen demand oxidation and (optionally) for nutrient removal (i.e., denitrification and phosphorus removal). The technology has as a key inventive element¿a novel, compac ...
