  1. SiC-Microhotplate ConductometricSensor Array for NOx, CO, and Hydrocarbon Monitoring of Hot Engine Emissions

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the number of mobile source emissions in the United States increases, it is necessary to further reduce the emission of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbons from such sources to provide safe air quality, especially in urban environments. Significant reductions in pollution emissions can be achieved using advanced engine controls based on real-time measurements of CO, NOx, and hydrocarbon concentrations i ...

  2. Low-Cost Zeolite Membrane Modules for Solvent Dehydration

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A number of very high-volume liquid chemicals form azeotropes with water and can be dehydrated to required purity levels only through the use of entrainers or drying agents. The handling and disposal of these additional chemicals present significant environmental risks. Recently, membrane pervaporation using both polymeric and inorganic membrane modules has been commercialized as a method to deh ...

  5. Colorimetric Monitoring of Trace Toxic Air Pollutants

    SBC: ChemSensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the program areas of interest to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the development of rapid, non-invasive monitors to detect exposure to toxic air pollutants at trace (ppt) levels. Of the 356 chemicals listed on the Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Office¿s List of Extremely Hazardous Substances (Section 302 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Kn ...

  6. Wastewater Treatment by Pulsed Electric Field Processing

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Combined sewage outflows (CSOs) are a major contributor to water pollution in the United States. The impact of peak stormwater loads on sewage treatment plants leads to the discharge of significant amounts (1.26 billion gallons) of untreated sewage each year. The bacterial load represented by this discharge directly contributed to more than 2,200 beach closings in the year 2000, numerous closing ...

  7. Copper-Free Antifouling Coatings

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    Copper compounds have been used for centuries in marine antifoulants to inhibit biofouling. This anthropogenic copper is a potential problem in confined basins and in regions that experience limited mixing. In this research project, E Paint Company will explore the feasibility of developing novel self-polishing coatings that exploit natural methods of biofouling control to produce effective and ...

  8. Neurotoxic/Cytotoxin Detection in Water Supplies During Sample Collection

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There has been an alarming increase in toxic cyanobacteria during the past 2 decades, with numerous poisonings reported from Australia to the United States. The increased toxic risks led the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to include cyanotoxins on the 1998 Contaminant Candidate List. However, most cyanobacterial blooms are not toxic. Further, bloom toxicity will change over time. T ...

  9. CATALYTIC BRIDGE CHEMICAL MONITOR

    SBC: Envirochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A CONCEPT FOR A CHEMICAL MONITOR BASED ON DIFFERENTIAL CATALYTIC REACTIVITIES AND LARGE REACTION EXOTHERMICITIES. THE SIMPLICITY OF THE PROPOSED SENSOR CONCEPT PROMISES AN ECONOMIC AND RELIABLE MONITOR FOR IN-SITU MEASUREMENT OF A VARIETY OF GASES. IN THIS PROJECT, ENVIROCHEM, INC., WILL INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF THIS CONCEPT FOR MEASURING AMMONIA IN FLUE GASES. A SENSI ...

  10. Near-Zero VOC General OEM Bake Enamel

    SBC: Finishes Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Finishes Unlimited, Inc., produces baking enamels for general purpose original equipment manufacturers who make sundry metal products such as lockers, tool boxes, compressors, folding chairs, storage racks, etc. Although it is a small company, Finishes Unlimited, Inc., has been among the leaders in one type of environmentally friendly coatings (i.e., waterborne bake enamels). In 1993, it became ...
