  1. Feasibility of Monitoring Heavy Metal Emissions from a Coal-Fired Thermal Hazardous Waste Incinerator Using a Multi-Metal Continuous Emissions Monitor

    SBC: Cooper Environmental Services, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Under current Hazardous Waste Combustor Maximum Achievable Control Technology rule, heavy metal emissions from the nations thermal hazardous waste combustion facilities are estimated using control efficiencies determined during performance testing and estimated metal feed rates during normal operation. The error in estimates of metal emissions from this approach can be on the order of 100% or mor ...

  2. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X ray fluorescence ins ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reduction in dependency of imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has lead to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, that promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential densit ...
