Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A LOW COST CATALYTIC CERAMIC FILTER FOR SIMULTANEOUS VOC AND PARTICULATE REMOVAL

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PLANTS ARE SOURCES OF LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) WHICH ARE EMITTED INTO THE AIR, SOMETIMES IN HIGH FLOWS OF OFFGAS. SOME OF THE OFFGAS STREAMS MAY ALSO CONTAIN FINE PARTICULATE MATTER FROM 10 MICRONS TO THE SUBMICRON SIZE RANGE. THE VOC MAY CONDENSE ON THE FINE PARTICULATE MATTER WHICH, DUE TO ITS SIZE, CAN LODGE DEEP WITHIN THE LUNGS. MOST INDUSTRIA ...

  2. PHOTO-THERMAL CONVERSION OF CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS AND HALONS TO VALUABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE MATERIALS

    SBC: Energia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE PRESENTLY VAST STORES OF CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFCS) AND BROMOCHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (HALONS) IN USE AS REFRIGERANTS, FIRE SUPPERSSANTS, CLEANING AGENTS, SOLVENTS, PROPELLANTS AND FOAMING AGENTS. SINCE THEY POSE A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE STRATOSPHERIC OZONE LAYER, THEY MUST BE REMOVED FROM SERVICE, AS SPECIFIED IN THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL AND NEW FEDERAL REGULATIONS. CONSEQUENTLY, IT WOULD BE OF ...

  3. A LOW LIFE-CYCLE COST UV SOURCE AND REACTOR TO INITIATE THE OXIDATION OF DILUTE, AQUEOUS PHASE ORGANICS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OXIDATION OF DILUTE CONCNETRATIONS OF ORGANICS IN AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS USING HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND/OR OZONE AS THE OXIDANT IN THE PRESENCE OF ULTRAVIOLET (UV) LIGHT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED AND IS OFFERED COMMERCIALLY BY SEVERAL CORPORATIONS. PRESENT SYSTEMS SEEM TO BE LIMITED TO LOW CONCENTRATIONS OR ORGANICS (

  4. AQUEOUS BASED SULFUR FREE PULPING

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO PUBLIC AND US EPA PRESSURE ON THE PULP AND PAPER INDUSTRY TO REDUCE POLLUTING EMISSIONS. PULP FROM THE MANUFACTURE OF PAPER, CONTAINER BOARD, TISSUE AND BAGS IS PRIMARILY PRODUCED BY THE KRAFT PROCESS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES WOOD CHIPS TO PULP USING SODIUM SULFIDE AND SODIUM HYDROXIDE. AS A RESULT, LARGE QUANTITIES OF NOXIOUS SULFUR CONTAINING GASES MAY BE EMITTED FROM THESE ...

  5. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER ZINC-GRAPHITE DRY PLATING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING IN CYANIDE AND OTHER TOXIC CHEMICAL BATHS IS OF SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. IN ADDITION, CADMIUM COATINGS RELEASE TOXIC BY-PRODUCTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT DURING THEIR USE AND DISPOSAL. AS A CONSEQUENCE, A UNIQUE AND ECONOMICAL DRY PLATING METHOD HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL PLATING, THIS METHOD WOULD USE NO LIQUID CHEMICALS. THE DRY PLATING CONCEPT UTILIZES A ...

  6. ELIMINATION OF TOXIC EFFLUENT AND METALLIZING PROCESS WASTE VIAL JET VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Jet Process Corporation            Topic: N/A

    JET PROCESS CORPORATION PROPOSED TO FURTHER DEVELOP ITS NOVEL, PATENTED JET VAPOR DEPOSITION (JVD) COATING TECHNOLOGY TO MAKE IT CAPABLE OF COST EFFECTIVELY DISPLACING ELECTROPLATING AND SIMILAR METAL FINISH METHODS IN A WIDE RANGE OF INDUSTRIAL METAL COATING APPLICATIONS. JVD IS A CLEAN, DRY PROCESS WITH PRODUCES MINIMAL PROCESS WASTE AND NO TOXIC EFFLUENTS. IT IS A STRAIGHTFORWARD TECHNIQUE BASE ...

  7. CARBON ADSORPTION/MEMBRANE REGENERATION HYBRID SYSTEM

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT AND FUTURE LEGISLATION WILL REQUIRE U.S. INDUSTRY TO TREAT MANY ORGANIC SOLVENT-CONTAINING AIR STREAMS NOW BEING DISCHARGED TO THE ATMOSPHERE. STREAMS OF THIS TYPE ARE PRODUCED BY PROCESSES SUCH AS PAINT REMOVAL AND METAL DEGREASING, AND IN PAINTING AND COATING OPERATIONS. MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH (MTR) HAS DEVELOPED A MEMBRANE VAPOR RECOVERY PROCESS THAT IS ABLE TO REMOVE SOLVENT ...

  8. IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY FOR MEASURING LEAD DETECTION IN LEAD-BASED PAINT (PROPOSAL II)

    SBC: Niton Corp.            Topic: N/A

    LEAD IS A HIGHLY TOXIC SUBSTANCE, CAUSING SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS, PARTICULARLY IN CHILDREN. THE EPA AND HUD CONSIDER LEAD PAINT TO BE A PRIMARY SOURCE OF LEAD POISONING. COMMERCIAL PAINT NO LONGER CONTAINS LEAD AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES HAVE CALLED FOR ITS REMOVAL FROM OLDER HOMES. ONE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM IS THE LACK OF RAPID, INEXPENIVE, RELIABLE METHODS FOR MEASURING LEVELS OF LEAD IN CONCENTRATI ...

  9. DENOX PROCESS FOR NOX AND UNBURNED HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS FROM COMBUSTION SOURCES

    SBC: Plasmachines Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMACHINES, INC. HAS RECENTLY DISCOVERED AN ELECTRONIC PROCESS TO REDUCE NOX EMISSIONS FROM DIESEL EXHAUST. THIS PROJECT WILL EXPLORE THE APPLICATION OF THE PROCESS TO AN EXHAUST STREAM OF A NATURAL GAS POWERED ELECTRIC GENERATOR. IF SUCCESSFUL, THE PROCESS COULD BE ADAPTED TO REDUCT NOX EMISSIONS FROM MANY COMBUSTION SOURCES TO MINIMIZE THIS ACID RAIN PRECURSOR.

  10. BIFUNCTIONAL CATALYSTS FOR THE DECOMPOSITION OF NOX

    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 THERMODYNAMICALLY FAVORED, THERE ARE NO COMMERCIAL CATALYTICPROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE OXYGEN PRODUCED DURING THE DECOMPOSITION REMAINS STRONGLY CHEMISORBED ON THE CATALYST, ...
