  6. The ADESORB Process for Economical Production of Sorbents for Mercury Removal from Coal-Fired Power Plants

    SBC: ADA-ES, Inc.            Topic: 14

    The injection of activated carbon into the flue gas has been shown to mitigate the emission of mercury in all coal-fired power plants, even those with wet and dry scrubbers. This is a low-capital-cost technology in which the largest cost element is the cost of the activated carbon sorbent. Therefore, the obvious approach to further cost reductions is to reduce the amount of sorbent needed or to ...

  9. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...
