  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. AQUEOUS BASED SULFUR FREE PULPING

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO PUBLIC AND US EPA PRESSURE ON THE PULP AND PAPER INDUSTRY TO REDUCE POLLUTING EMISSIONS. PULP FROM THE MANUFACTURE OF PAPER, CONTAINER BOARD, TISSUE AND BAGS IS PRIMARILY PRODUCED BY THE KRAFT PROCESS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES WOOD CHIPS TO PULP USING SODIUM SULFIDE AND SODIUM HYDROXIDE. AS A RESULT, LARGE QUANTITIES OF NOXIOUS SULFUR CONTAINING GASES MAY BE EMITTED FROM THESE ...

  8. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. DIRECT SULFUR RECOVERY

    SBC: Sorbent Technologies Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A LOW- COST ALTERNATIVE TO A MODIFIED CLAUS PLAN FOR CONVERSION OF SO2 TO ELEMENTAL SULFUR, AND, MORE SPECIFICALLY, TO OPTIMIZE AN EXISTING ACID RAIN SORBENT REGENERATION PROCESS DEVELOPED BY SANITECH TO YIELD DIRECTLY A PURE ELEMENTAL SULFUR PRODUCT. IN SANITECH'S PRESENT REGENERATION PROCESS, APPROXIMATELY ONE- QUARTER OF THE LI ...
