  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. An Improved NOXSO Sorbent for the Removal of NOx and Sox from Flue Gas

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  4. CONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITOR FOR HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE EMISSION OF HALOGEN CONTAINING POLLUTANTS FROM A VARIETY OF POWER GENERATING, WASTE PROCESSING, CHEMICAL PRODUCTION, AND SOLVENT USING INDUSTRIES IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN OF MAJOR SIGNIFICANCE. INORGANIC HALOGEN SPECIES, INCLUDING HYDROGEN CHLORIDE AND HYDROGEN FLUORIDE, REPRESENT MAJOR POTENTIAL HEALTH THREATS TO BOTH HUMAN, ANIMAL, AND PLANT COMMUNITIES. ORGANIC HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS (HOC ...

  5. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER ZINC-GRAPHITE DRY PLATING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING IN CYANIDE AND OTHER TOXIC CHEMICAL BATHS IS OF SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. IN ADDITION, CADMIUM COATINGS RELEASE TOXIC BY-PRODUCTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT DURING THEIR USE AND DISPOSAL. AS A CONSEQUENCE, A UNIQUE AND ECONOMICAL DRY PLATING METHOD HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL PLATING, THIS METHOD WOULD USE NO LIQUID CHEMICALS. THE DRY PLATING CONCEPT UTILIZES A ...

  6. SELECTIVE ELIMINATION OF WASTE IN A METAL FINISHING OPERATION

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. BIFUNCTIONAL CATALYSTS FOR THE DECOMPOSITION OF NOX

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

    NITROGEN OXIDES (NO AND NO2 OR NOX) ARE AMONG THE MOST PERVASIVE AND DIFFICULT EMISSIONS TO CONTROL. ALTHOUGH THE DECOMPOSITION OF THE MAJOR SPECIES (NO) IS THERMODYNAMICALLY FAVORED, THERE ARE NO COMMERCIAL CATALYTICPROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE OXYGEN PRODUCED DURING THE DECOMPOSITION REMAINS STRONGLY CHEMISORBED ON THE CATALYST, ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. NOVEL CATALYSTS FOR THE LOW TEMPERATURE OXIDATION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

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

    NEW REGULATIONS ARE FORCING THE CONTROL OF VERY DILUTE VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS. ALTHOUGH CATALYTIC INCINERATION IS INCREASINGLY THE TECHNOLOGY OF CHOICE, ENERGY AND CATALYST COSTS RISE DRAMATICALLY AS THE VOC CONCENTRATION DECREASES. ENERGY COSTS COULD BE GREATLY REDUCED IF CATALYSTS WERE AVAILABLE WHICH ERER ACTIVE AT LOWER TEMPERATURES. TDA RESEARCH, INC. (TDA) HAS SYNTHESIZED ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION OF NOX WITH METHANE

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

    NITROGEN OXIDES (NO AND NO2 OR NOX) ARE AMONG THE MOST PERVASIVE AND DIFFICULT EMISSIONS TO CONTROL. CURRENTLY, THERE ARE NO COMMERCIAL CATALYTIC PROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. CURRENT SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR) SYSTEMS FOR USE IN OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENTS USE AMMONIA AS THE REDUCING AGENT. AMMONIA SCR REQUIRES THE HANDLING OF LARGE QUANTITIES OF ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. CATALYSTS FOR THE CONTROL OF AUTOMOTIVE COLD START EMISSIONS

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

    AUTOMOTIVE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS ARE QUITE EFFICIENT ONCE THEY REACH OPERATING TEMPERATURE, TYPICALLY DESTROYING OVER 98% OF THE INCOMING HYDROCARBONS (HCS) AND CARBON MONOXIDE (CO). HOWEVER, UP TO 80% OF THE EMISSIONS DURING THE FEDERAL TEST PROCEDURE OCCUR DURING THE FIRST FEW MINUTES WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING RICH, THE OXYGEN SENSOR IS NOT YET OPERATIONAL, AND THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAS NOT RE ...
