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. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHLY RELIABLE COST-EFFECTIVE CONTINUOUS MCONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE A PROOF OFCONCEPT EVALUATION OF AN INSTRUMENT CAPABLE OF MEASURING NO,02, AND SO2 USING UV ABSORPTION AND A PHOTODIODE ARRAY SPECTROPHOTOMETER. IF SUCCESSFUL, THIS INSTRUMENT WOULD SATISFY ALL THE REQUIREMENTS OF A CONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITORING SYSTEM REQUIRED BY THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY. SINCE ALL THREE GASES WOULD BE MEASURED WITH A S ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A RETROFIT IN SITU THREE POINT AUDIT DEVICE FFOR TESTING OF LINEARITY AND CALIBRATION OF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN-STACK TRANSMISSOMETERS

    SBC: Eastern Technical Associates            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN-STACK TRANSMISSMETERS FOR OPACITY MEASUREMENT PRESENTLY ONLYHAVE THE CAPABILITY OF A ONE POINTDYNAMIC UPSCALE CHECK OR NO DYNAMIC UPSCALE CHECK DURING OPERATION. IN ORDER TO PERFORM NECESSARY MULTI-POINT AUDITSOF LINERARITY CHECKS, THE INSTRUMENT MUST BE REMOVED FROM SERVICE OR AT THE LEAST BE MANUALLY FITTED WITH AN EXTERNAL AUDIT DEVICE. THIS REQUIRES ACCESS TO THE INST ...

  4. IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS

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

    THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH ARE THREE-FOLD: (1) TO DEV ELOP TECHNIQUES FOR RAPID START-UP OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS; (2) TO DEVELOP PROCEDURES FOR RAPID RECOVERY OF UPSET DIGESTERS WHICH HAVE BEEN SHOCKED BY OVERLOADING, TOXIC SUBSTANCES, OR PH DEPRESSION PROBLEMS; AND (3) TO INCREASE THE OVERALL KINETICS OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTION. REACTION KINETICS MAY BE IMPROVED BY ENHANCING THE GROWTH OF METH AN ...

  5. CHEMICAL/RADIATION WELL TREATMENT

    SBC: Ground Water Consultants            Topic: N/A

    IRON AND SULFUR BACTERIA ARE PRINCIPAL CAUSES OF BIO FOULING OF WELL SCREENS, PUMPS, TREATMENT AND PROCESSING EQUIPMENT, AND IN EXTREME CASES, DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS. ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS ARE HIGH-PUMPING COST, RAPID PUMP AND VALVE DETERIORATION, CORROSION OF ALL FERROUS MATERIAL IN CONTACT WITH THE WATER, INCREASED DISEASE RISK (SHIELDING, NURTURING MEDIA), AND BAD TASTE ODOR AND COLOR. THE PROBLEM ...

  6. A SUBSTITUTE FOR CHROMIC ACID ETCHING OF PLASTIC FOR PLATING

    SBC: JP LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CHROMIC ACID IS USED FOR ETCHING PLASTICS FOR ELECTROPLATINGAND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) SHIELDING. MORE THAN A MILLION POUNDS OF CHROMIC ACID IS USED EVERY YEAR IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR ETCHING PLASTICS. HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM IS HIGHLY TOXIC. REQUIRES EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT FOR ITS RECOVERY FROM THE WASTEWATER AND THE SLUDGE REQUIRES PR PROPER DISPOSAL. PLASTIC PLATERS ARE SEEKING ...

  9. PULSED AIR BIOLOGICAL FIXED FILM TREATMENT

    SBC: PROCESS DYNAMICS            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH RATE DOWNFLOW SPARGED BIOLOGICAL FIXED FILM REACTOR DESIGN HAS BEEN PROPOSED. THIS SYSTEM OFFERS AN IMPROVEMENT OVER PREVIOUS DESIGNS IN THAT INSTEAD OF CONSTANT AIR S SPARGING, THE AIR SPARGING TO THE PACKED SEED IS PULSED TO OFFER MORE EFFICIENT OXYGEN UTILIZATION. ANOTHER IMPROVEMENTIS THAT BECAUSE OF THE PULSING AIR, THE AIR HEADER SUPPLY C CAN BE LOCATED BELOW THE MEDIA TO PERMIT FULL ...
