  1. SAFE AND ECONOMICAL CHLORINE DIOXIDE GENERATION

    SBC: Eltech Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SAFE, COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO CHLORINE TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER FOR DISTRIBUTION AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR SOME TIME. CHLORINE DIOXIDE IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHLORINE FOR THE TREATMENT OF EVEN POOR QUALITY WATER SUPPLIES AND THE REDUCTION OF POTENTIAL CANCER CAUSING CHLORINATED ORGANICS. ITS WIDESPREAD USE HAS BEEN INHIBITED BY THE COSTS AND/OR COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCTIO ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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, ...

  4. SUBSURFACE INSPECTION WITH X-RAY GENERATED POSITRONS

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 National Science Foundation
  5. BIORESOURCES OF TERMITICIDES FROM JUNIPERS (JUNIPERUS ASHEI AND J. VIRGINIANA)

    SBC: Bio-renewables Institute Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF TERMITES IS A MAJOR PROBLEM IN THE UNITED STATES. THE PRINCIPAL METHODS OF WOOD PRESERVATION ARE INORGANIC ARSENIC COMPOUNDS, PENTACHLOROPHENOL AND CREOSOTE. THESE AGENTS APPEAR TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARDOUS, INCLUDING CARCINOGENIC. PRELIMINARY RESEARCH HASREVEALED THAT THE HEARTWOOD AND LEAF COMPONENTS OF THE JUNIPERS (JUNIPERUS) HAVE VERY HIGH TERMITICIDAL ACTIVITIES. THE PROPOS ...

  6. ELECTRONIC BIOSENSORS FOR IMMUNOASSAYS: A SURFACE CONDUCTANCE APPROACH

    SBC: Biotech Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A LARGE POTENTIAL MARKET FOR BIOSENSORS IN THE CLINICAL AND HEALTH CARE FIELDS AND FOR INDUSTRIAL PROCESS MONITORING. OFTEN BIO-SENSORS REQUIRE EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT AND PROCEDURES THAT ARE CONFINED TO THE SKILLED OPERATOR ANDTHUS ARE UNSUITABLE FOR MANY PURPOSES OUTSIDE THE ANALYTICALLABORATORY. A NOVEL SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION METHOD IS DESCRIBEDTHAT COULD LEAD TO SIMPLIFIED MONOCLONAL ANTIBOD ...

  7. ENGINEERING AN INNOVATIVE SYSTEM FOR UTILIZING ORGANIC WASTE MATERIALS IN THE PRODUCTION OF GRASS SODS

    SBC: Buckeye Bluegrass Farms Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS DESIGNED TO EXAMINE CLOSELY AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR RECOVERING THE RESOURCE POTENTIAL OF ORGANIC MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE MATERIALS. THE WASTE MATERIALS WILL BE SUBSTITUTED FOR TOPSOIL IN A NOVEL SYSTEM FOR GROWING GRASS SODS. THE NEW GRASS GROWING SYSTEMAPPEARS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING A SOD CROP IN AS LITTLE AS 6 WEEKS AS COMPARED TO 1 TO 2 YEARS FOR SOD PRODUCED IN ...

  8. ELECTROCHEMICAL CO2 REDUCTION TO CONDENSED MOLECULES

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 National Science Foundation
  9. WASTEWATER PURIFICATION VIA IMPELLER FLUIDIZED MICROEMULSION LIQUID MEMBRANES

    SBC: Helipump Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF IMPELLER FLUIDIZED MICROEMULSION LIQUID MEMBRANES TO THE SEPARATION OF CONTAMINANTS SUCH AS HEAVY METALS AND ORGANICS FROM WASTEWATER IS PROPOSED. THE IMPELLER FLUIDIZER DEVELOPED BY HELIPUMP CORPORATION IS A SELF-PUMPING, DURABLE, AND INEXPENSIVE FLUIDIZER DESIGN WHICH PROVIDES HIGHER MASS TRANSFER AND THROUGHPUT RATES THAN TYPICAL FLUIDIZERS. LIQUID MEMBRANES HAVE BEEN EMPLOYE ...

  10. WIDE ANGLE TRACKING SYSTEM FOR MOBILE ROBOTS

    SBC: International Computer Robotic            Topic: N/A

    A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR MOBILE ROBOT NAVIGATION AND CONTROL HAS RECENTLY BEEN INVESTIGATED. THE TECHNIQUE USES A WIDE ANGLELENS TO IMAGE SPECIFIED TARGETS AND USES IMAGE DETECTION ANDRECOGNITION TO DETERMINE THE POSITION OF THE ROBOT WITH RESPECT TO THE TARGETS, THUS PROVIDING A BASIS FOR NAVIGATION CONTROL. THIS SENSOR MAY ALSO BE USED ALONE OR WITH OTHER SENSORS TO PROVIDE OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE FOR STA ...
