  1. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  2. Chromium-Free Conversion Coating Technologies for Light Metals

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    Improving corrosion control is a significant technical challenge that must be addressed before lightweight metal alloys of aluminum and magnesium can be more widely used in manufacturing industries such as automobile, aerospace, and metal finishing. Use of lightweight metal alloys would provide many advantages for these industries. For example, a 40 percent reduction in the weight of an automobile ...

  3. A New Biosensor for Rapid Identification of Bacterial Pathogens

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

    Rapid, handheld, or portable instrumentation for determining the quality of natural waters, recreational waters, and distributed and treated supplies does not currently exist. Echo Technologies, Inc., completed a Phase I project that demonstrated a new approach for the identification of bacteria in aqueous systems. The approach uses bacteriophage as the molecular recognition element. Bacteriophage ...

  5. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II project, Edenspace Systems Corporation seeks to demonstrate the use of transgenic plants that exude significant amounts of a rapidly biodegradable chelator-citric acid-from their roots, enabling a cost savings of more than 70 percent in lead phytoextraction. A citrate synthase (CS) transgene was placed under the control of different plant promoters to overexpress the gene in roots ...

  6. Transgenic Citrate-Producing Plants for Lead Phytoremediation

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services called lead "the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States." Lead poisoning affects 890,000 U.S. children between the ages of 1 and 5, causing aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, and learning problems. In adults, increased lead levels have been linked to kidney problems, high blood press ...

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In 1991, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services called lead ¿the number one environmental threat to the health of children in the United States.¿ Lead exposure can cause premature birth and impair a child¿s mental and physical development. In adults, lead exposure can cause kidney damage, high blood pressure, and other problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates tha ...

  9. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...
