  1. FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A PULSE COMBUSTOR IN-FURNACE NOX

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. MEMBRANE PERVAPORATION FOR REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES

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

    CONTAMINATION OF THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES BY HAZARDOUS, SYNTHETIC VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS (VOCS) IS BECOMING A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. THIS PROBLEM IS OF GREAT CONCERN WITH RESPECT TO CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER. GROUNDWATER IS THESOURCE OF DRINKING WATER FOR ABOUT HALF THE NATION. THE EPAESTIMATES THAT UP TO 20% OF THE DRINKING WATER THAT COMES FROM GORUNDWATER CONTAINS VOCS. METHODS FOR ...

  3. NOVEL SENSORS FOR METAL-ION DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION

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

    METALS AND METAL COMPLEXES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN MANY INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES. DUE TO THE WIDESPREAD AND LARGE-SCALEUSE OF METALS, MONITORING THEIR PRESENCE IN WASTE STREAMS AND CONTROLLING THEIR LEVELS OF DISCHARGE INTO THE ENVIRON-MENT ARE DIFFICULT AND COSTLY TASKS--TASKS THAT ARE ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT GIVEN THE TOXICITY OF MANY COMMONLY USED METALS. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOR ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED COUPLED-TRANSPORT MEMBRANES FOR THE RECOVERY AND RECYCLE OF METAL IONS

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

    VAST QUANTITIES OF INDUSTRIAL ACIDS, BASES, PROCESSING SOLUTIONS, AND SLUDGES CONTAIN HEAVY METALS. THESE ARE OFTEN HAZARDOUS, AND IF LEFT UNREGULATED, PRESENT A SERIOUS THREAT TO GROUNDWATER AND THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE FOR TREATING INDUSTRIAL WASTES ARE TYPICALLY INADEQUATE AND EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. NEW METHODS ARE CLEARLY NEEDED FOR REMOVING TOXIC METALS FROM PROCESS S ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. DEVELOPMENT OF AN NOX SENSOR FOR SMALL STATIONARY AND MOBILESOURCES

    SBC: Catalytica Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NOX EMISSIONS FROM COMBUSTION PROCESSES ARE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES SUCH AS ACID RAIN, VEGETATION DAMAGE, SMOG AND CHANGES IN THE OZONE LAYER. A NUMBER OF STRATEGIES DIRECTED AT REDUCING NOX EMISSIONS WOULD BENEFIT FROM REAL TIME NOX EMISSIONS MEASUREMENT SINCE THIS WOULD ALLOW FEEDBACK CONTROL OF THE PROCESS. CURRENT INSTRUMENTATION ALLOWS COST EFFECTIVE MONITORING OF VERY L ...

  6. CONTROL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Catalytica Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES REQUIRING THAT MATERIAL BE HEATED AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY COOLED. IF MOST OF THIS HEAT IS RECOVERED AND RECYCLED TO THE OVEN, THE NET POWER INPUT TO THE OVEN COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. THE KEY TO ACCOMPLISHING THIS IS AN INCREASE OF THE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT BETWEEN GAS AND MATERIAL SO THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE RESASONABLY COMPACT. SIMPLE EXPERIMEN ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. LOW COST FIBER-OPTIC PROBE FOR ON-LINE EMISSION CONTROL OF PARTICULATE LADEN FLOWS

    SBC: Insitec, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LOW COST, REMOTE SENSING OF PARTICLE-LADEN PROCESS STREAMS REQUIRES CONTINUING INSTRUMENTATION DEVELOPMENT TO MEET THE THE NEEDS OF FOSSIL ENERGY AND OTHER INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONSPARTICULATE EMISSIONS CONTROL WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH PROCESS OPTIMIZATION IS HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE ENTERING PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION AND CONCENTRATION. ON-LINE ANAL-YSIS AND FEEDBACK CONTROL DEVELOPMENT WILL PERMIT ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. RECOVERY OF ORGANIC SOLVENT VAPORS BY MEMBRANES

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ORGNAIC VAPOR-LADEN INDUSTRIAL AIRSTREAMS ARE A GROWING POL-LUTION PROBLEM AND A WASTE OF RESOURCES. THE METHODS NOW AVAILABLE FOR TREATING THESE AIRSTREAMS ARE INADEQUATE, ESPECIALLY WHERE CHLOROFLUOROCARBON SOLVENTS ARE INVOLVED. THE USE OF MEMBRANES TO RECOVER ORGANIC VAPORS FROM CONTAMI-NATED AIR HAS BEEN STUDIED AT MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RE- INC. SINCE 1982, AND THEY HAVE COMPLETED LABORATOR ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. HYDROCARBON RECOVERY FROM PETROLEUM TRANSFER OPERATIONS

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A
