  1. Microchip Analytical System for Inexpensive, Real-Time Aerosol Chemical Speciation

    SBC: MicroChemica            Topic: 14NCER1B

    Atmospheric aerosols, also known as particulate matter (PM), play important roles in weather, climate and human health. Aerosol number, size and chemistry can all exhibit high degrees of spatial and temporal variability, thereby increasing the need for highly time-resolved analyses obtained over extensive time periods (weeks to years). Instrumentation for monitoring the physical characteristics of ...

  2. Icosyanate-Free Polyurethane Coatings

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER3B

    Polyurethanes (PUs) are made by reacting two components, one of which has two or more hydroxyl (OH) groups (diol or polyol) while the second has two or more isocyanate (NCO) groups. Unfortunately, not only is the isocyanate component a powerful irritant, but sensitized subjects can suffer severe asthma attacks and even death when exposed to trace quantities that are well below permissible exposure ...

  3. Cost-effective Molecularly Imprinted Polymer Based Monitoring Technologies to Improve the Performance and Reliability of Small Drinking Water Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 14NCER4B

    Small drinking water systems consistently provide safe, reliable drinking water to their customers. However, challenges of such systems include lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, cost of scale, and technical/logistical challenges associated with regulation compliance. The deployment of new cost-effective monitoring technologies, such as improved, low cost, in-line, in situ, and rem ...

  4. Processing of Spent Perfluoroayliodide Catalyst for Recovery of Antimony Trifluoride and Iodine and Hazardous Waste Elimination

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II work will demonstrate at pilot scale the successful recovery of antimony and iodine values from spent perfluoroalkyliodide (PFAI) catalyst. The technical feasibility of this innovation and simple recovery process was demonstrated in Phase I. This recovery process was shown to be capable of nearly 100% recovery of both antimony and iodine values without generation of hazardous air em ...

  5. PROCESSING SPENT CATALYST TO RECOVER METAL VALUES AND TO MINIMIZE OR ELIMINATE HAZARDOUS WASTE

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

  6. A NEW CHARGE BASED COAGULANT DOSE CONTROL INSTRUMENT

    SBC: Clear Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The catastrophic drinking water treatment plant failure in March 1993 in Milwaukee was a direct result of the inability to control coagulant chemical dosage during significant changed in raw water quality. This event largely dispelled the myth that only small water utilities were vulnerable to such control problems. The current state of this critical technology, coagulant dose control, is woeful ...

  7. Innovative Technology for Efficient Utilization of Municipal Solid Waste

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The need for a cost effective and cleaner method for MSW disposal hardly needs emphasizing. With EnerTech's slurry carbonization technology, liquid fuels, with a extremely low chlorine content, can be produced from RDF and are suitable for clean combustion in pulverized coal boilers. Objective of Phase I and II research is to accumulate necessary engineering data, from continuous pilot plants, t ...

  8. Novel Catalysts for Hydrogenolysis of Organochlorine Pollutants

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

    Hydrogenolysis is an energy efficient, zero emission method for the detoxification of hazardous chlorinated hydrocarbon (CHC) wastes. In CHC hydrogenolysis, the chlorinated hydrocarbon is reacted with hydrogen to produce a hydrocarbon and an inorganic acid (HC1). In the Phase I project, TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), demonstrated a new type of catalyst with high activity for hydrodechlorination of al ...

  9. A Novel Extractant for the Selective Removal of Arsenic from Industrial Wastewaters

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

    The combustion of fossil fuels, particularly coal, introduces large quantities of arsenic into the environment, much of which reaches natural waters. Acute arsenic poisoning results from ingestion of only 100 mg of the element, while chronic poisoning occurs with the continued ingestion of smaller amounts. Processes developed for arsenic removal from drinking water are appropriate for small volu ...

  10. A Low Cost, Long Life Zinc Oxide Based Sorbent

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

    Coal fired Gasifer Combined Cycles (GCC) have both high efficiency and very low emissions. A critical need for GCCs is a method of removing the H2S produced from the sulfur in the coal from the hot gases. There has been extensive research on hot gas clean-up systems, focused on the use of a zinc oxide based sorbent (e.g., zinc titanate). Unfortunately, current sorbents are relatively expensive, ...
