  1. AN ACTIVATED SLUDGE MODIFICATION TO ELIMINATE BULKING, MINIMIZE REACTOR VOLUME AND ENHANCE NUTRIENT REMOVAL

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A MODIFICATION OF THE ACTIVATED SLUDGE PROCESS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO ELIMINATE SLUDGE BULKING, MINIMIZE REACTOR VOLUMES, AND ENHANCE NUTRIENT REMOVALS. THE FLOW SHEET UTILIZES TWO SEGMENTS IN SERIES. THE FIRST EMPLOYS A 10 MINUTE MIXED LIQUOR CONTACTOR TO ADSORB 50-60% OF THE SOLUBLE CARBON SUBSTRATE. CONTACTOR MIXED LIQUOR IS FLOTATION SEPARATED AND DISCHARGED TO A SEPARATE AERATION REACTOR FOR M ...

  3. ZONE I SOIL DECONTAMINATION THROUGH IN SITU VAPOR STRIPPING PROCESSES

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOILS AND GROUNDS TO ENSURE PROTECTION OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT IS DIFFICULTAND COSTLY. THERE IS A CRITICAL NEED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OFTECHNOLOGIES WHICH ARE BOTH TECHNICALLY SOUND AND COST- EFFECTIVE. THE POTENTIAL REMOVAL OF ROGANIC CHEMICALS FROM UNSATURATED SOILS VIA VAPOR PHASE TRANSPORT APPEARS TO SHOW GREAT PROMISE. THIS APPROACH HAS APPLICABILITY ...

  4. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH-SPEED PORTABLE APPARATUS FOR THE IN-FIELD QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF ASBESTOS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY FOR ENERGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PORTABLE INSTRUMENT, BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF X-RAY DIFFRACTION, IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ALLOW QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION OF THE PRESENCE OF ASBESTOS IN MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION. PRELIMINARY TESTS SHOW THAT A RESOLUTION OF A FEW WEIGHT PERCENT ASBESTOS CAN BE EASILY MEASURED. ANALYSISOF THE SYSTEM X-RAY PHYSICS INDICATE A LOWER LEVEL OF DETECTABILITY OF A FEW TENTHS OF A PERCENT SHOULD BE ACHI ...

  5. CHLORINATED PLASTICS SEPARATION FROM MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW) PROVIDES A WASTE FUEL SOURCE HAVING POTENTIAL RECOVERABLE ENERGY OF OVER 1.5 QUADS PER YEAR.EXPANDED USE OF THIS FUEL SOURCE THROUGH ENERGY RECOVERY IN-INCINERATION OF MSW IS THREATENED BY THE PRESENCE OF CHLO- RINE IN MSW. CHLORINE IS A PRIMARY FACTOR IN THE FORMATION OF TOXIC CHLORINATED ORGANICS SUCH AS DOXINS AND FURANS. CHLORINE IS ALSO A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ACID ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. SURFACTANT FLUSHING/WASHING--AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL ARE ORIENTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL SURFACTANT FLUSHING AND WASHING AS A LOW-COST, LOW-IMPACT, LOW-RISK, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOVAL AND ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN SOIL. THESE OBJECTIVES ARE: DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONIC SURFACTANT SOLUTION AT CONCENTRATIONS ABOVE THE CRITICAL MICELLE CONCENTRATION ...

  7. COLOR SORTING OF POST-CONSUMER GLASS AND PLASTIC CONTAINERS TO IMPROVE THEIR RECYCLABILITY

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MANY U.S. MUNICIPALITIES AND COMMUNITIES ARE INTEGRATING RECYCLING PROGRAMS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR SOLID WASTE INORDER TO MINIMIZE LANDFILL REQUIREMENTS. THE SUCCESS OF THESE RECYCLING PROGRAMS IS STRONGLY DEPENDENT UPON THE MARKETABILITY OF THE MATERIALS SET ASIDE FROM THE WASTE STREAM FOR RECYCLING. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MARKETING RECYCLED GLASS ARE WELL ESTABLISHED AND ARE HIGHLY DEPENDENTUP ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. METHOD FOR OPENING AND EMPTYING THE CONTENTS OF PLASTIC BAGS ENTERING RECYCLING FACILITIES

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MANY U.S. MUNICIPALITIES AND COMMUNITIES ARE INTEGRATING RECYCLING PROGRAMS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR SOLID WASTE IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE LANDFILL REQUIREMENTS. INCREASINGLY, THESE RECYCLING PROGRAMS INCLUDE MATERIALS RECOVERY FACILITIES (MRF) WHERE THE MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW), CURBSIDE COLLECTED RECYCLABLE MATERIALS, AND OTHER BAGGED WASTES ARE TRANSPORTED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION FOR THE RETRIEVA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. AN INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF CHLORINATED COMPOUNDS IN THE VAPOR PHASE

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF OFF-GAS TREATMENT DURING REMEDIATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES CAN TYPICALLY INCREASE THE COST BY 50% OR MORE. THIS RESEARCH IS TARGETED TOWARDS DEVELOPING A SIMPLE COST EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO DESTROY CHLORINATED ORGANIC SOLVENTS IN THE VAPOR PHASE. THE PROCESS USES A DRY CHEMICAL AT A SLIGHTLY ELEVATED TEMPERATURE. THE RESEARCH INVOLVES TESTING OF A VARIETY OF RELATED DRY CHEMICALS IN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...
