  1. Improving the Recyclability of Computer Scrap and Other E-Waste

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: C3NCERPG

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. More than 13 billion pounds of e-waste plastics are expected to be produced during the next decade from computer e-waste alone. Many of these electronic components are constructed of valuable engineered plastics. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has indicated that recycling is the preferred ...

  2. AN INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF CHLORINATED COMPOUNDS IN THE VAPOR PHASE

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF OFF-GAS TREATMENT DURING REMEDIATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES CAN TYPICALLY INCREASE THE COST BY 50% OR MORE. THIS RESEARCH IS TARGETED TOWARDS DEVELOPING A SIMPLE COST EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO DESTROY CHLORINATED ORGANIC SOLVENTS IN THE VAPOR PHASE. THE PROCESS USES A DRY CHEMICAL AT A SLIGHTLY ELEVATED TEMPERATURE. THE RESEARCH INVOLVES TESTING OF A VARIETY OF RELATED DRY CHEMICALS IN ...

  3. APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO AUTOMATED RECYCLING

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    DIVERSION OF PLASTICS FROM LANDFILL TO RECYCLING CAN POTENTIALLY SAVE THE ENERGY EQUIVALENT OF 60 MILLION BARRELS OF OIL ANNUALLY AND REDUCE LANDFILL VOLUME REQUIRMENTS BY UP TO 20%. THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS RECOMMENDED THAT SOURCE REDUCTION, RECYCLING, VOLUME REDUCTION, AND LANDFILLING BE APPLIED, IN THAT ORDER, IN THE TREATMENT OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW). RECYCLING HAS RE ...

  4. A PROCESS FOR INCREASING THE AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF RECYCLED PLASTICS RESINS

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    EACH YEAR, AMERICANS DISPOSE OF AN ESTIMATED 29 BILLION POUNDS OF PLASTICS WHICH CONSUME UP TO 20% OF OUR NATION'S ANNUAL LANDFILL CAPACITY. RECENT ENVIRONMENTAL AND POLITICAL PRESSURES HAVE LED TO RAPID ESTABLISHMENT OF PLASTICS RECYCLING FACILITIES. LIMITED MARKETS FOR LOW QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS REQUIRE RECLAIMERS TO PRODUCE THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS IN ORDER TO COMPETE WITH VIRGIN RE ...

  5. SEPARTATION OF POST-CONSUMER PET AND PVC PLASTICS IN THE REGRIND FLAKE FORM

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE LAST THREE YEARS HAVE SEEN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COMPANIES PROCESSING POST-CONSUMER PLASTICS FROM PRODUCTS SUCH AS SOFT DRINK CONTAINERS, DETERGENT BOTTLES, MILK JUGS AND WATER BOTTLES. WHILE THIS HAS TO SOME EXTENT DIVERTED THESE MATERIALS FROM LANDFILLS, IT HAS CAUSED AN ECONOMIC ANOMALY. THE HIGH COSTS OF MANUALLY SORTING THE PLASTICS SO THEY CAN BE REPROCESSED MAKES THEM UNA ...

  6. Sterilizing Medical Equipment with One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: C3NCERA1

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to investigate the feasibility and commercial potential of using the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP™) as a low-temperature sterilization process for medical equipment. Current sterilization technologies that pose a risk to health care workers and the environment are being phased out of use (e.g., ethylene oxide st ...

  8. NEW SENSOR FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIR MOVEMENT

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS PREPARED IN DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE NRC'S SOLICITATION FOR AN IMPROVED DEVICE TO MEASURE AIR MOVEMENT FOR PERSONNEL RADIATION PROTECTION AND HEALTH PHYSICS APPLICATIONS IN NUCLEAR FACILITIES. THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW DEVICE IS TO PROPERLY LOCATE AIR SAMPLERS SO THAT THE AIR SAMPLED IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE AIR INHALED BY WORKERS. ALTHOUGH AIR FLOW RATE SENSORS SUCH AS ANEMOMETERS ARE ...

  10. ENHANCED SIMULATOR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR OPERATORS AT MULTI-UNIT PLANTS.

    SBC: Corpe Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AT MULTI-UNIT NUCLEAR GENRATING STATIONS, CONTROL ROOM OPERATORS ARE GENERALLY LICENSED TO OPERATE ALL SIMILAR UNITS. SIMULATOR TRAINING CONDUCTED AT THE LICENSEE TRAINING FACILITY OCCURS ON ONE SIMULATOR WHICH MAY NOT EXACTLY MIMIC ANY UNIT. INADEQUATE TRAINING ON UNIT-TO-UNIT AND UNIT-TO-SIMULATOR DIFFERENCES, IN CONJUNCTION WITH LIMITED PER-PERSON SIMULATOR TRAINING HOURS, CAN RESULT IN INCREAS ...
