  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. BIFUNCTIONAL CATALYSTS FOR THE DECOMPOSITION OF NOX

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NITROGEN OXIDES (NO AND NO2 OR NOX) ARE AMONG THE MOST PERVASIVE AND DIFFICULT EMISSIONS TO CONTROL. ALTHOUGH THE DECOMPOSITION OF THE MAJOR SPECIES (NO) IS THERMODYNAMICALLY FAVORED, THERE ARE NO COMMERCIAL CATALYTICPROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE OXYGEN PRODUCED DURING THE DECOMPOSITION REMAINS STRONGLY CHEMISORBED ON THE CATALYST, ...

  4. CATALYSTS FOR THE CONTROL OF AUTOMOTIVE COLD START EMISSIONS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AUTOMOTIVE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS ARE QUITE EFFICIENT ONCE THEY REACH OPERATING TEMPERATURE, TYPICALLY DESTROYING OVER 98% OF THE INCOMING HYDROCARBONS (HCS) AND CARBON MONOXIDE (CO). HOWEVER, UP TO 80% OF THE EMISSIONS DURING THE FEDERAL TEST PROCEDURE OCCUR DURING THE FIRST FEW MINUTES WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING RICH, THE OXYGEN SENSOR IS NOT YET OPERATIONAL, AND THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAS NOT RE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. CATALYSTS FOR THE OXIDATION OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. CONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITOR FOR HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE EMISSION OF HALOGEN CONTAINING POLLUTANTS FROM A VARIETY OF POWER GENERATING, WASTE PROCESSING, CHEMICAL PRODUCTION, AND SOLVENT USING INDUSTRIES IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN OF MAJOR SIGNIFICANCE. INORGANIC HALOGEN SPECIES, INCLUDING HYDROGEN CHLORIDE AND HYDROGEN FLUORIDE, REPRESENT MAJOR POTENTIAL HEALTH THREATS TO BOTH HUMAN, ANIMAL, AND PLANT COMMUNITIES. ORGANIC HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS (HOC ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. CONTROLLED SOLIDIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS ORGANIC WASTES WITH RECOVERY OF RECYCLABLE COMPONENTS

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1984 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. EMULSION LIQUID MEMBRANE EXTRACTION OF SELENIUM FROM REFINERY WASTE WASTE WATERS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER ZINC-GRAPHITE DRY PLATING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING IN CYANIDE AND OTHER TOXIC CHEMICAL BATHS IS OF SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. IN ADDITION, CADMIUM COATINGS RELEASE TOXIC BY-PRODUCTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT DURING THEIR USE AND DISPOSAL. AS A CONSEQUENCE, A UNIQUE AND ECONOMICAL DRY PLATING METHOD HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL PLATING, THIS METHOD WOULD USE NO LIQUID CHEMICALS. THE DRY PLATING CONCEPT UTILIZES A ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. NOVEL CATALYSTS FOR THE LOW TEMPERATURE OXIDATION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW REGULATIONS ARE FORCING THE CONTROL OF VERY DILUTE VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS. ALTHOUGH CATALYTIC INCINERATION IS INCREASINGLY THE TECHNOLOGY OF CHOICE, ENERGY AND CATALYST COSTS RISE DRAMATICALLY AS THE VOC CONCENTRATION DECREASES. ENERGY COSTS COULD BE GREATLY REDUCED IF CATALYSTS WERE AVAILABLE WHICH ERER ACTIVE AT LOWER TEMPERATURES. TDA RESEARCH, INC. (TDA) HAS SYNTHESIZED ...
