  1. 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 ...

  5. NEW PROCESS FOR HOLLOW-FIBER PLASMA-POLYMER MEMBRANES

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MEMBRANE SEPARATIONS ARE ATTRACTIVE, ENERGY-EFFICIENT PROCESSES FOR NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS IN CHEMICAL PROCESSING AND WASTE TREATMENT. CONVENTIONAL MEMBRANE POLYMERS, HOWEVER, ARE NOT SUFFICIENTLY SELECTIVE OR RESISTANT TO ORGANIC SOLVENTS TO BE USEFUL IN MANY APPLICATIONS. MEMBRANES MADE FROM PLASMA POLYMERS OFFER POTENTIALLY GREAT IMPROVEMENTS IN BOTH SELECTIVITY AND RESISTANCE TO SOLVENTS. PL ...

  6. A LIQUID ABSORBENT FOR THE SEPARATION OF BUTYLENE ISOMERS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CHEMICAL PROCESSING INDUSTRY (CPI) SEPARATIONS CONSUME AS MUCH AS 4.4 QUADS OF ENERGY ANNUALLY IN THE UNITED STATES AND ACCOUNT FOR THE BULK OF THE CPI OPERATION COSTS OF $22 BILLION ANNUALLY. THUS, THE NEED FOR NEW AND IMPROVED SEPARATION TECHNOLOGIES HAS BEEN WIDELY RECOGNIZED. SEPARATING ISOBUTYLENE FROM THE MIXED C4 STREAMS PRODUCED BY PETROLEUM REFINERIES IS DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE DUE TO T ...

  7. A COMPACT HIGH-BRIGHTNESS ELECTRON SOURCE

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    A NEW ELECTRON SOURCE FOR HIGH-ENERGY ELECTRON BEAM WELDING WHICH IS SIMPLE, YET CAPABLE OF IMPRESSIVE BEAM BRIGHTNESS AND ENERGY IN A COMPACT STRUCTURE IS BEING DEVELOPED. THE NEW DEVICE CAN ACHIEVE REDUCED SPOT SIZE, INCREASED ENERGY DENSITY, AND INCREASED RANGE OVER CONVENTIONAL ELECTRON-BEAM WELDERS. USING SPECIAL TECHNIQUES, WELDING AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURES OVER LONG DISTANCES MAY EVEN BE P ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  8. A CONSTRAINT-BASED ENGINEERING MECHANICS APPLICATION BUILT ON A SYMBOLIC MATHEMATICS SYSTEM

    SBC: Saltire Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SIGNIFICANT COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITY LIES IN PROVIDING SOFTWARE SYSTEMS WHICH TAKE REAL WORLD ENGINEERING PROBLEMS,EXPRESSED IN ENGINEERING RATHER THAN MATHEMATICAL TERMS, ANDCONVERT THESE PROBLEMS INTO SYSTEMS OF MATHEMATICAL EQUATIONS. THESE EQUATIONS MAY THEN BE ANALYZED USING THE SYMBOLIC AND NUMERICAL FACILITIES OF A GENERAL PURPOSE MATHEMATICS PACKAGE. THIS APPROACH SEPARATES APPLICATION SPE ...

  10. STTR Phase I: A noninvasive gene expression based classifier for oral cancer

    SBC: ARPHION, LTD            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will focus on oral cancer (OC), a disease that strikes over 30,000 new patients each year in the US resulting in about 8,000 deaths and even more disfigurements. This costs hundreds of millions of dollars in medical fees. A surgical biopsy with histopathology diagnosis is routine for oral tumor assessment and about one million ...
