  1. Laser Diode Array for Multiple Pollutant Monitoring

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

    Infrared tunable diode laser spectrometers provide a highly effective means of measuring trace concentrations, with either remote sensing or with advective sampling. It is often desirable to measure more than one trace gas at a time. This is especially true when gas emissions are strongly correlated, such as in combustion emissions where measuring both the CO2 concentration and another minor con ...

  2. An Automated Electrophoretic Mobility Instrument for Coagulant Dose Control

    SBC: Clear Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Drinking water filtration plants nationwide are failing to adequately reduce the public health risk due to exposure to sometimes lethal Cryptosporidium and other microbial particle levels. New regulations also will require reduction of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to minimize the risk from potentially carcinogenic reaction by-products resulting from disinfection. Particle and DBP precursors ar ...

  3. Measurement of Biological Contamination of Water

    SBC: Maine Research and Technology Co, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) can sometimes be used as a diagnostic device in biology and medicine. In general, LIF has difficulties in relating the fluorescence spectra to the concentration of the emitters within the tissue, in identifying different species, and in the possibility of destroying the molecules being probed if the wrong excitation wavelength is chosen. Many of the problems asso ...

  5. A Long-Life, Low-Cost Sorbent for the Conversion of HCl to Chlorine

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

    The U.S. demand for chlorinated hydrocarbons exceeds 15 million tons annually. The production of these chemicals requires chlorine (Cl2) and produces HCl as an unavoidable by-product. Stringent environmental regulations limit the shipment of hazardous wastes like HCl, and the disposal of HCl by neutralization is costly. A consortium of 15 companies is developing an in-process recycling system t ...

  7. EVALUATION OF A NEW FILTER FOR MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIA WASTEWATER TREATMENT AMERICAN COMBUSTION, INC.

    SBC: American Combustion Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSED IS EVALUATION OF THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE NEW DESIGN FEATURES OF THE FILTER AND A COMPARISON OF ITS PERFORMANCE WITH CONVEN- TIONAL FILTERS IN TREATMENT OF WASTEWATERS. THE MAJOR SPECIFIC FEATURE OF THE FILTER IS A STONE-GRANULAR MEDIA BED WHICH IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A NON CLOGGING OPERATION, LONGER FILTRATION RUNS AND GREATER DIRT CAPACITY THA ...

  8. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  9. FEASIBILITY OF COAL TAR BIODEGRADATION BY COMPOSTING

    SBC: Cambridge Analytical Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED BETWEEN 1880 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF THIS MATERIAL WERE LAND-DISPOSED AT OVER 1500 SITES IN THE UNITED STATES. THE TAR CONTAINS SEVENTEEN POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAH) WHICH HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE EPA PRIORITY POLLUTION LIST AS A RESULT OF THEIR MUTAGENICI ...

  10. RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS TO PERMIT RECYCLING OF DUSTS FROM ELECTRIC ARC FURNACES.

    SBC: Cato Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRIC ARC FURNACE DUST IS LISTED AS A HAZARDOUS WASTE. TOTAL PRODUCTION OF THIS DUST IS ESTIMATED TO BE 500,000 TONS AT SOME 77 LOCATION RANGING IN SCALE FORM LESS THAN 1,000 TONS TO OVER 20,000 TONS PER YEAR. A PROCESS IS PROPOSED WHICH MAY PERMIT ON-SITE, SIMPLE RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS IN THE DUST. THE PROCESS RECYCLES RECYCLES CHEMICAL REAGENTS AND AQUEOUS LEACH , MINIMIZIN COST AND A ...
