  1. 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 ...

  2. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...

  3. Gamma Ray Lens Feasibility Study

    SBC: Acctek Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ganuna (7)-ray lenses are an advanced technology currently under development at Argonne National Laboratory for arms control application. The purpose of this proposal is to address whether y-ray lens technology can enable an improved system for imaging radioactive isotopes in patients. In nuclear medicine, it is often desirable to generate a y-ray image that shows the exact areas where an emitting ...

  4. High Performance Robust Lightweight Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present, the only fuel cell systems that have the capability of achieving high power den W cm-2) are the proton exchange membrane (PEM) and the alkaline fuel cell (AFC) systems. Of these, the PEM system is the leading candidate fuel cell power source for many military and commercial applications. In order to make PEM fuel cell power sources cost-competitive with competing technologies and more ...

  5. Improved Structural Adhesives from Natural Products for High-Moisture Environments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present, four classes of structural adhesives (epoxy resins, phenolic resins, acrylic adhesives and urethanes) are commonly employed in applications where the adhesive joint is either totally immersed in salt or fresh water or subject to high levels of moisture while simultaneously experiencing large shear loads. Each of these synthetic polymer formulations suffers from individual disadvantages ...

  9. Electromagnetic Detection of Surface Icing

    SBC: Target Microwave Llc            Topic: N/A

    Development is proposed for a breakthrough technique involving the use of electro-magnetic radiation to detect and measure thickness of non-conductive coatings on both metallic and non-metallic surfaces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort will be to prove that this approach can detect all forms of ice on aircraft structures and roadway surfaces. This system would permit detection and meas ...
