U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) seeks sensors that can detect Clean Air Act and Clean Wat

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

EPA seeks sensors that can detect Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act Priority Pollutants with high accuracy and precision, in real time, at low cost. These sensors should either be easily portable or deployable in the field for unattended operation. They should supplement, extend, or improve on existing methods to comply with regulatory requirements, or should make it possible for non-regulated parties (e.g. nonprofit organizations, small businesses, members of the public) to monitor their environment.


One solicitation annually. The FY2018 Phase 1 Solicitation is open from October 31, 2017 to December 19, 2017: SBIR Funding Opportunities

For reference, the 2017 sensor topics were:

TOPICS: I. Air and Climate Inexpensive Indoor Formaldehyde Sensor Low-cost Sensor for Fugitive Methane Emissions II. Toxic Chemicals Technologies to Help Consumers Understand the Chemical Composition of Products

III. Land Revitilization

Remediation of PFAS-Contaminated Soil and Sediment IV. Water Simple Lead Test for Tap Water Section I, D, Topic Code 1. (Page 10-11) Lab-on-a-chip sensors for organic pollutants in homes: Lab-on-a-chip sensors for very affordable, in-home, real-time, and continuous measurement and reporting of multiple (not single) organic contaminants at trace (parts per trillion) concentrations that can be easily deployed and results understood by the homeowner or resident.

1) Hand-Held Sensor for Carbon Dioxide
