SELECTIVE ELIMINATION OF WASTE IN A METAL FINISHING OPERATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Mr Mandar Sunthankar
Award Amount: $165,000.00
Abstract:
Chromate conversion coatings are routinely applied to cadmium in electroplating. this metal finishing process generates large quantities of hazardous hexavalent chromium and heavy-metal waste. this is a major environmental concern. consequently, an environmentally benign coating finish is proposed… More

PROCESS MODELING OF A NOVEL PLASMA ASSISTED ALLOY PLATING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
