Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

More than half of the electricity generated in the U.S. is produced by coal-fired facilities that are large producers of the toxic gas sulfur dioxide. A popular technique to limiting sulfur dioxide emissions is to utilize wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies, which convert the gas to gypsum. As part of this process, mercury, which r...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This proposal identifies a technology that potentially reduces volatile metal mercury emissions by ~95% from coal fired utilities. Frontier GeoSciences, Inc. has discovered a method of removing Hg by chemically modifying scrubber water with a proprietary polymer (FGS-MCX). Scrubber water naturally removes Hg species that are water soluble (e.g...

Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

75392-Most natural water systems, industrial processes, wastewater streams, and storage facilities are monitored by analyzing periodic grab samples, a process that results in a low-resolution understanding of the aqueous stream¿s chemistry. With limited data points, transient events may positively bias an analyte¿s temporally averaged concentra...

Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Frontier Geosciences, Inc., proposes to develop a portable field analyzer for the determination of low levels of arsenic in waters. The instrument will employ the principle of hydride generation-microplasma-atomic fluorescence spectrometry, and it is anticipated that the instrument will be able to analyze approximately 20 samples per hour, with ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

The effluents of many industrial processes, as well as surface water and groundwater from historically polluted sites, often contain unacceptably high levels of Hg and other toxic trace metals. Although inorganic Hg itself is not bioaccumulative, it is readily converted to methyl mercury in the ambient environment, and so should be removed befor...

Phase 2 SBIR

Frontier Geosciences, Inc., proposes to develop a novel method for the speciation of a wide variety of different covalent and complex cyanides in waters, based on the coupling of a chromatographic separation to the most sensitive and selective cyanide detector that currently is available commercially. This type of method development specifically...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: 2000
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Not Available NASA has unique data collection requirements to support ground-based testing of rocket engines. Not only is the rapid collection of data important, but the transmission of this information to processing facilities is critical. By combining new electrical interface standards with high speed fiber optic technology, generic transmiss...
