  1. A NITROGEN DIOXIDE MONITOR BASED ON NONDISPERSIVE VISIBLE OPTICAL DETECTION

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

    The problem addressed in this project is the need to monitor oxides of nitrogen(NOx, ie NO and NO2) levels in the combustion gases of stationary sources suchas power plants in order to facilitate on-line control of the scrubbers that willbe used to remove those pollutants. Since the measurements are in the parts permillion range, simpler and less expensive instruments than those currently used,su ...

  2. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...

  3. Fouling-Resistant Ceramic Membranes for Treatment of Metastable Oil/Water Emulsions

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Billions of gallons of oily wastewaters are generated daily by a variety of industrial sources. A large fraction of these are oil/water emulsions for which current treatment technologies are often costly and ineffective. Although such emulsions can be separated using crossflow filtration technology, conventional crossflow membranes typically are uneconomic for performing such treatment due to st ...

  4. Novel Ceramic-Organic Vapor Permeation Membranes for VOC Removal

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Vapor permeation with highly permeable and organic-selective membranes is becoming an increasingly popular technique for preventing VOC emissions that are generated by a variety of stationary sources, including solvent and surface coating operations, gasoline storage operations, and printing operations. A limitation of current vapor permeation (VP) processes is the upper temperature limit for pol ...

  5. AN ADVANCED FLUE GAS MONITOR FOR SO2

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of an instrument for continuously monitoring SO2 levels in fluegas is proposed. The SO2 will be detected by means of an electrochemical sensorcell, which operates in a three-electrode potentiostatic mode. The proposedinnovation is develop-ment of an advance sensor cell which uses a high-temperature solid polymer eleobjectives of the proposed program are 1) identification of poten ...

  6. NOVEL SORBENTS FOR SORPTION AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER

    SBC: ICET, INC            Topic: N/A

    An efficient method for directly removing chromate and metals such as nickel,zinc, cadmium, mercury, cobalt, chromium(III), lead in two separate stages isproposed. The highly capacity sorbents could be regenerated, recovering thechromate and other metals separately. The regeneration is expected to beefficient and is simply based on changing the pH from one extreme to another.Bench scale characte ...

  7. TRACE HEAVY METAL REMOVAL FROM DRINKING WATER

    SBC: ICET, INC            Topic: N/A

    New ideas are presented on the covalent attachment of chelating functionalitiesto novel, highly hydrophilic sobent material, which can then complex heavy metalions irreversibly and is targeted toward lead removal. The efficient removal ofother heavy metals, such as cadmium, chromium, mercury, zinc, nickel, cobalt, andcooper are anticipated. The covalent attached ligands are expected to be stable ...

  8. Catalytically Activated Monitor for Chlorinated Hydrocarbons

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    Widespread implementation of chlorinated volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions control technologies is anticipated for manufacturing plants and remediation of historical groundwater and soil contamination. To facilitate compliance monitoring and to improve cost-effectiveness of control technologies, a reliable, continuous CVOC monitor is essential. Current CVOC instruments do not meet this g ...

  9. PHOTOCATALYTIC AIR POLLUTION CONTROL TECHNOLOGY FOR DILUTE VOC/TAP DESTRUCTION

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    Technology is needed for control of emissions of volatile organic compounds(VOC's) and toxic air pollutants (TAP's) from stationary sources. A particularneed exists for emissions control of industrial processes, where diluteconcentrations of VOC's are present in high flows of offgas which may alsocontain submicron particles.The proposed research project is to establish the technical and economicf ...
