  1. Second-Generaton Isobutanol Producing Biocatalyst

    SBC: Gevo Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Isobutanol can be produced biotechnologically from the same biomass sources as ethanol. Compared to ethanol, however, isobutanol is a superior biofuel due to its higher energy content and its compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure. In addition, due to the vapor pressure issues posed by ethanol, requirements to produce gasoline that meet the specifications for the reformulated gasoline ( ...

  2. Automated Removal of Brominated Flame Retardant Material From a Mixed E-Waste Plastics Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to there concerns e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential dens ...

  3. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

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

    In the event that vehicles of buildings become contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials, a well-studies and effective decontaminant is hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV). Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 wt.% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department of Transportation ...

  4. Process-intensified Low-Cost Biodiesel Production using Meat Rendering Waste, Greases, and Food Wastes

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

    Biodiesel is a fuel that is made by processing vegetable oil or animal fats into a liquid fuel that can be combusted in a standard, unmodified diesel engine. The use of biodiesel reduces CO2 emissions by over 80% compared to petroleum and it reduces our dependence on foreign oil while promoting economic opportunities in rural America. When biodiesel is made from low-cost waste oils or fats the e ...

  6. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 08NCERI1

    In the event that vehicles of buildings become contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials, a well-studied and effective decontaminant is hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV).  Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 weight percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department o ...

  9. DEHYDROHALOGENATION OF COMPLEX HAZARDOUS ORGANIC WASTES FOR DESTRUCTION AND RESOURCE RECOVERY

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

    THE PRODUCTION OF HALOGENATED ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (HOCS) AND OF CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFCS), IN THE UNITED STATES, PRODUCES ABOUT 200 MILLION POUNDS OF REFRACTORY, HAZARDOUS WASTE PER YEAR. DUE TO ITS LOW FUEL VALUE, CORROSIVITY, ANDHAZARDOUS METALS CONTENT, THE WASTE IS POORLY SUITED FOR DISPOSAL BY INCINERATION AND IS BANNED FROM DISOSAL IN LANDFILLS. PREVIOUS HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL RESEARCH, SPO ...

  10. SURFACTANT FLUSHING/WASHING--AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL ARE ORIENTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL SURFACTANT FLUSHING AND WASHING AS A LOW-COST, LOW-IMPACT, LOW-RISK, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOVAL AND ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN SOIL. THESE OBJECTIVES ARE: DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONIC SURFACTANT SOLUTION AT CONCENTRATIONS ABOVE THE CRITICAL MICELLE CONCENTRATION ...
