  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. EVALUATION OF CLINOPTILOLITE ZEOLITE FOR REMOVAL OF LEAD FROM DOMESTIC DRINKING WATER

    SBC: Teague Mineral Products            Topic: N/A

    THE DESIREABLE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF LEAD ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS WIDESPREAD USE IN WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS PLUMBING SYTEMS, EVEN THOUGH VERY LOW LEVELS OF LEAD MAY POSE A SIGNIFICANT HEALTH HAZARD AND CAUSE LEARNINGDISABILITIES IN CHILDREN. THOUGH MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLIES GENERALLY HAVE VERY LOW LEAD LEVELS, THEY FREQUENTLY BECOME CONTAMINATED WITH LEAD FROM THE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM AND/O ...

  7. A MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS FOR THE REMOVAL OF BTEX FROM GLYCOL DEHYDRATION VENTS

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

    A major source of volatile organic compound emissions into the environment is thevent stream from the glycol-based dehydration units used to remove water fromnatural gas. A glycol dehydration unit operating on a 50-million SCFD naturalgas stream will typically discharge more than 40 tons per year of varioushazardous volatile organic air pollutants - about half of which is "BTEX"(benzene, toluene, ...

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Development of a Membrane-based System for the Recovery and Reuse of Solvents

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Treatment of Produced Water from Coal-Bed Methane Production Using Carbon Aerogel Technology

    SBC: Bpf, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Self Contained Electrochemical System for Treating Paint Residue

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A
