  1. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    Problem Statement: In order to obtain energy independence from conventional sources, there is a significant interest in the production of biogas and“green energy” during wastewater treatment. Due to increased emphasis on sustainability and potential for additional revenue streams, utilities are expected to adopt energy production from digester gas in the near future. Although biogas from tr ...

  2. Recycling Rare Earth Metals from Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

    SBC: Onto Technology, LLC            Topic: C

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Project develops methods of recycling rare earth alloys from used nickel metal hydride batteries. Alloys of rare earth metal, nickel and other metals provide functional hydride storage materials that are critical to the operation of nickel metal hydride batteries and their applications. The current fleet of hybrid electric vehicles relies upon nick ...

  3. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, solventless and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coatings based on its novel PTFE fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents that when liberated during the drying process may have a significant air quality impact. The drying/curing process may also be energy intensive, requiring additional consumption of f ...

  4. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankine Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    Current anaerobic digester systems are designed for capturing energy from waste from large heads of farm animals. GHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of anaerobic digesters, has stated that a minimum dairy heard size for economical implementation of a biogas system as 800 cows. These require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger, a limiting factor in economically scaling ...

  5. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    OPTRA has developed a novel approach to phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (PS-CRDS) using a Fourier transform infrared (FTlR) modulator to impose the spectrally-dependent amplitude modulation on a broadband JR light source. As with previous PS-CRDS measurements, we excite a resonant cavity with amplitude modulated energy and measure the phase shift of the modulated signal exiting the cavit ...

  6. A NOVEL MEMBRANE SYSTEM FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM AIR

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

    THE CONTROL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANT (VOC) EMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES AND FUEL SOURCES IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM. STRINGENT REGULATIONS HAVE BEEN ENACTED THAT WILL LIMIT SUCH EMISSIONS, HEIGHTENING THE NEED FOR SMALL, SIMPLE UNITS THAT CAN RECOVER VOCS AND RETURN THEM AS REUSABLE COMPOUNDS. CURRENT VOC-REMOVAL TECHNOLOGIES, SUCH AS INCINERATION, CARBON ADSORPTION, AND C ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. A LOW COST CATALYTIC CERAMIC FILTER FOR SIMULTANEOUS VOC AND PARTICULATE REMOVAL

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PLANTS ARE SOURCES OF LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) WHICH ARE EMITTED INTO THE AIR, SOMETIMES IN HIGH FLOWS OF OFFGAS. SOME OF THE OFFGAS STREAMS MAY ALSO CONTAIN FINE PARTICULATE MATTER FROM 10 MICRONS TO THE SUBMICRON SIZE RANGE. THE VOC MAY CONDENSE ON THE FINE PARTICULATE MATTER WHICH, DUE TO ITS SIZE, CAN LODGE DEEP WITHIN THE LUNGS. MOST INDUSTRIA ...

  8. REDUCING DIESEL NOX AND SOOT EMISSIONS VIA PARTICLE-FREE EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DIESEL ENGINES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY FOR POWER GENERATION AND TRANSPORTATION. HOWEVER, NOX AND SOOT EMISSIONS FROM BOTH STATIONARY AND MOBILE DIESEL ENGINES ARE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO AIR POLLUTION. MANY ENGINE MODIFICATIONS AND EXHAUST-AFTER-TREATMENT DEVICES HAVE BEEN PROPOSED AND TESTED TO REDUCE THE NOX AND SOOT EMISSIONS FORM DIESEL EXHAUSTS. SIMPLE TECHNIQUES FO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A LOW LIFE-CYCLE COST UV SOURCE AND REACTOR TO INITIATE THE OXIDATION OF DILUTE, AQUEOUS PHASE ORGANICS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OXIDATION OF DILUTE CONCNETRATIONS OF ORGANICS IN AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS USING HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND/OR OZONE AS THE OXIDANT IN THE PRESENCE OF ULTRAVIOLET (UV) LIGHT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED AND IS OFFERED COMMERCIALLY BY SEVERAL CORPORATIONS. PRESENT SYSTEMS SEEM TO BE LIMITED TO LOW CONCENTRATIONS OR ORGANICS (
