  1. REMOVAL OF AIR TOXIC METALS EMISSIONS FROM FOSSIL-FUEL COMBUSTION SOURCES

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

    AIR TOXIC METALS AND THEIR COMPOUNDS ARE PRODUCED FROM THE COMBUSTION OF FOSSIL-FUELS. THE COMBUSTION OF COAL AND FUEL OIL REPRESENTS AN EXTREMELY LARGE CATEGORY OF SOURCE EMISSIONS. RESEARCH IS PROPOSED THAT WILL PROVIDE A MEANS FOR REMOVING THE VOLATILE METAL CONTENT OF FLUE GAS GENERATED FROM POWER AND STEAM GENERATING PLANTS USING ZEOLITIC OR CARBONACEOUS ADSORBENTS. A LABORATORY-SCALE FIXTURE ...

  2. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AND RECOVERY WITH A NATURAL ZEOLITE CONTINUOUS ION EXCHANGE THERMAL MULTICOMPONENT FRACTIONATOR

    SBC: Boulder Innovative            Topic: N/A

    ION EXCHANGE IS AN ATTRACTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS FROM WATER AND WASTEWATERS, BUT IT IS COMMONLY FOUND TO BE UNECONOMICAL DUE TO THE HIGH COST OF CHEMICALS AND DISPOSAL OF THE BRINES OR SECONDARY WASTES GENERATED. SEVERAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS TECHNOLOGY ARE PROPOSED TO ALLOW ION EXCHANGE TO BE MORE WIDELY APPLIED TO THE REMOVAL OF TOXIC HEAVY METALS AT SUPERFUND SITES AND IN OTH ...

  3. IN-PLANT REDUCTION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATION IN THE FLUOROCARBON INDUSTRY

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

    THE FLUOROCARBON INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES CURRENTLY GENERATES OVER 1,200,000 POUNDS OF SPENT ANTIMONY FLUOROCARBON CATALYST ANNUALLY IN PRODUCING 1,190 MILLION POUNDS OF FLUOROCARBONS (CFCS, HCFCS, HFCS). THIS SPENT CATALYST IS A MIXTURE OF HALOGENATED ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (HOCS), ANTIMONY, AND ARSENIC HALIDES. IT IS EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS, TOXIC, AND CORROSIVE. IT CONTAINS AT LEAST EIGHT LISTED "C ...

  4. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER ZINC-CADMIUM ALLOY DRY PLATING AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING IN CYANIDE BATHS IS OF SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. AS A CONSEQUENCE, A UNIQUE DRY PLATING CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL ELECTROPLATING, THIS METHOD WOULD USE NO LIQUID CHEMICALS. THE DRY PLATING CONCEPT UTILIZES A NOVEL VAPOR DEPOSITION TECHNIQUE FOR CADMIUM OR ZINC. TO MINIMIZE OCCUPATIONAL HAZARDS OF TOXIC CADMIUM, AND TO ACCOMPLISH IN SITU CADMIUM ...

  6. COLOR SORTING OF POST-CONSUMER GLASS AND PLASTIC CONTAINERS TO IMPROVE THEIR RECYCLABILITY

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MANY U.S. MUNICIPALITIES AND COMMUNITIES ARE INTEGRATING RECYCLING PROGRAMS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR SOLID WASTE INORDER TO MINIMIZE LANDFILL REQUIREMENTS. THE SUCCESS OF THESE RECYCLING PROGRAMS IS STRONGLY DEPENDENT UPON THE MARKETABILITY OF THE MATERIALS SET ASIDE FROM THE WASTE STREAM FOR RECYCLING. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MARKETING RECYCLED GLASS ARE WELL ESTABLISHED AND ARE HIGHLY DEPENDENTUP ...

  7. A LOW COST AUTOMATED PROCESS FOR RECOVERY OF RECYCLABLE PLASTIC AND GLASS CONTAINERS FROM SOLID WASTE

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE DISPOSAL OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW) IS A COSTLY PROBLEM FOR ALL MUNICIPALITIES. THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS RECOMMENDED THAT SOURCE REDUCTION, RECYCLING, VOLUME REDUCTION, AND LANDFILLING BE APPLIED, IN THAT ORDER, IN THE TREATMENT OF MSW. RECYCLING HAS RECENTLY BECOME A MAJOR COMPONENT OF MUNICIPAL WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS. HIGH COSTS OF LABOR INTENSIVE CURBSIDE RECYCLIN ...

  8. METHOD FOR OPENING AND EMPTYING THE CONTENTS OF PLASTIC BAGS ENTERING RECYCLING FACILITIES

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. CATALYTIC REDUCTION OF NITRIC OXIDE IN NET OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENTS

    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 THERMODYNAMICALLYFAVORED, THERE ARE NO CATALYTIC PROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE OXYGEN PRODUCED DURING THE DECOMPOSITIONREMAINS STRONGLY CHEMISORBED ON THE CATALYST, BLOCKING AC ...

  10. EMULSION LIQUID MEMBRANE EXTRACTION OF CHROMIUM(VI) FROM SUPERFUND SITES

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

    CHROMIUM CONTAMINATION IS PRESENT AT OVER ONE-HALF OF THE SUPERFUND SITES. CHROMIUM(VI) IS A STRONG OXIDIZER, TOXIC, CARCINOGENIC, AND IS PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT TO MANAGE BECAUSE CHROMIUM IS USUALLY PRESENT AS AN ANION. IT HAS LITTLE INTERACTION WITH THE SOIL, RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD GROUND-WATER CONTAMINATION, AND IT CANNOT BE TREATED BY CONVENTIONAL PROCESSES WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO REMOVE CATIONS ...
