  1. OPTRODE DEVELOPMENT FOR REAL-TIME ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN INNOVATIVE OPTRODE DEVICE FOR THE DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, AND QUANTIFICATION OF TRACE LEVELS OF CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS IN WATER. THIS FIBER OPTIC BASED INSTRUMENT WILL HAVE A RESPONSE DETECTOR AND CAN MEASURE CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS AT PARTS PER BILLION CONCENTRATIONS. IT IS ALSO ANTICIPATED THAT THIS INSTRUMENT WILL BE ABLE TO I ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A PROPOSED CONTINUOUS MONITOR FOR STACK EMISSION OR PROCESS EFFLUENTS WITH RECORDER/CONTROLLER FUNCTION

    SBC: Moduspec Co.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. ADDITIVES FOR NOX EMMISSIONS CONTROL FROM FIXED SOURCES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL EXHAUST GAS NOX ABATEMENMT PROCESSES EXIST BASED ON HETEROGENEOUS REACTION OF A REDUCED NITROGEN CONTAINING ADDITIVE SUCH AS NH3. THESE EXISTING PROCESSES ARE NOT ADEQUATETO MEET PROPOSED NOX EMISSIONS REGULATIONS FOR MOST RETROFITPOWER PLANT STACKS AND INCINERATORS. THE INVESTIGATORS PRO-POSE TO TEST COMBINATIONS OF ADDITIVES AND CATALYSTS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO LEAD TO A NEW PROCESS ...

  6. CONTINUOUS MONITORING FOR N2O AND NO2

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NITROUS OXIDE, N2O, IS A STABLE GAS THAT CONTRIBUTES TO BOTHTHE GREENHOUSE EFFECT PROBLEM AND OZONE DEPLETION IN THE STRATOSPHERE. AMBIENT N2O LEVELS ARE INCREASING FROM UNKNOWN SOURCES. NO CONTINUOUS, ON-LINE INSTRUMENT IS COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE TO MEASURE N2O FROM FOSSIL FUEL COMBUSTION SOURCES TO ASSESS AND CONTROL N2O EMISSIONS. PSI TECHNOLOGY COMPANY PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS, ON-LINE ...

  7. TRACE METAL AEROSOL CONTROL IN INCINERATORS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. 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, ...
