  1. MTBE Removal from Drinking Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The 1990 Federal Clean Air Act mandated the incorporation of oxygenates into gasoline in ozone and carbon monoxide nonattainment areas. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is the oxygenate of choice due to economic and supply considerations. Despite federal and state programs to improve handling of gasoline and other fuels in pipelines, underground and above-ground storage tanks, and other transpor ...

  2. Innovative Sonic Technology for Ex-Situ Treatment of Mercury Contaminated Waste

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A novel combination of technologies is proposed by Montec Research to improve ex situ mercury remediation. The combination of acoustic agitation, iodine leaching chemistry, and real-time management of leach oxidation potential will allow mercury to be extracted economically from soils, sediments, and debris. Additional residue-washing steps are proposed to help residues pass the Universal Treatmen ...

  3. Metals Recycling from Waste Sludges by Ammoniacal Leaching Followed by Solvent Extraction

    SBC: Mse Technology Applications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of applying recently developed enhanced ammoniacal leaching techniques and solvent extraction reagents to recycle nickel, copper, cobalt, zinc, and cadmium from hydroxide sludges such as those produced by electroplating shops, metal finishers, treatment of acid mine drainage, and industrial wastewater in general. Electroplating sludges, class ...

  4. Development of Recycled Glass Paving Materials

    SBC: Sandhill Industries            Topic: N/A

    Sandhill Industries, a woman-owned small business and manufacturer of glass wall and floor tile, has developed a process for manufacturing paving products made from 99 percent recycled soda-lime plate or container glass. The glass pavers are thinner, lighter, denser, stronger, and perform better in paving applications than brick or concrete. Furthermore, the manufacture of the glass pavers generat ...

  5. High Performance Extraction of Heavy Metals with Tethered Metal-Binding Ligands

    SBC: CHELATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Reduced NOx/Hydrocarbon Emissions via Oxygen Enriched Lean Burn Engines

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lean burn spark engines are a promising technique to further reduce both NOx and hydrocarbon/carbon monoxide (HC/CO) engine emissions. Higher lean burn levels improve HC/CO oxidation while simultaneously reducing NOx formation. The NOx reduction is due to cooler flame temperatures. While the lean burn limit (beyond which combustion is poor) restricts further emission reductions, the use of oxyg ...

  7. Development and Demonstration of a Bench Scale Prototype for the Effective Removal of Selenium in Wastewater Utilizing Enhanced Iron Co-precipitation

    SBC: Hydro-Solutions & Purification            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. DEVELOPMENT OF THE FUNCTION AND UTILITY OF AN EXTENDIBLE PNEUMATIC MOUTHSTICK

    SBC: ANHOLT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MOUTHSTICKS OR ORTHODONTIC ORTHOSES ARE WIDELY USED BY PEOPLE WITH SPINAL CHORD INJURIES OR SIMILAR DISABILITIES TO INCREASE CONTROL OVER THEIR ENVIRONMENT. PEOPLE WITH THE ADDITIONAL LIMITATION OF LITTLE OR NO ANTERIOR/POSTERIOR HEAD MOTION MAY BENEFIT FROM AN EXTENDIBLE MOUTHSTICK. HOWEVER, COMMERCIAL EXTENDIBLE MOUTHSTICKS SUFFER IN THAT THEIR ACTION IS OFTEN SLOW, EXTENDIBILITY IS LIMITED, OR ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Department of Education
  9. EXTRACTION OF COPPER AND ZINC FROM MIXED-METAL CYANIDE SOLUTION USING SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION

    SBC: Chromatochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    REMOVAL OF TOXIC METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS HAS BECOME A PROBLEM OF INCREASING NATIONAL IMPORTANCE, AS A RESULT OF INCREASING CONCERN FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, AND INCREASINGLY STRINGENT WASTE DISPOSAL REGULATIONS. CHROMATOCHEM, INC., HAS DEVELOPED AN ECONOMICAL AND EFFECTIVE NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR THE REMOVAL OF LOW LEVELS OF TOXIC METAL IONS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS, USING SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION (SPE) ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. REMOVAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM GASEOUS EFFLUENT STREAMS BY NOVEL PERFLUOROMEMBRANES

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A
