    SBC: ECI TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ULTRA SENSITIVE CONTINUOUS MONITOR FOR MERCURY AND OTHER TRACE METALS IN FLUE GAS

    SBC: ENVIMETRICS            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1995 Environmental Protection Agency
  3. NOVEL ULTRA-NARROW BANDWIDTH FILTERS FOR IMPROVED CONTINUOUS EMISSIONS MONITORING

    SBC: Gaea Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Gaea Technologies propose to develop a novel, in situ cross stack monitor forimproved detection of criterion gases. The system is based on the use ofrecently developed ultra-narrow bandwidth solid-state filters for improvedspectral resolution, and reduction of spectral interferences and errors due tovariable aerosol extinction. These unique filters can be fabricated withbandwidths as narrow as 4 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY WASTE STREAM REDUCTION: APPLICATION OF ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, POLYMER RESIST/MASK FOR MICROCIRCUIT LITHOGRAPHY

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    No one questions the philosophy that it is better to avoid industrial pollutionrather than to attempt the clean up of an environmentally abused site.Unfortunately, we are slow to learn this lesson and hazardous wastes become moreexotic and continue to increase. Causing 21 of the 28 EPA superfund sites in theSilicon Valley (Witkowski and Menon 1991), the semiconductor industry was, andcontinues to ...

  7. DUAL PURPOSE ELECTROCHEMICAL TREATMENT OF WASTEWATER

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Industrial wastewater containing toxic waste compound and metal ions pose manyproblems of disposal. The most generally used method of removing metalcontaminants is lime treatment to precipitate metals as hydroxides. The metalis not normally recovered resulting in the need for sludge disposal. The costof sludge disposal plus fewer available disposal sites makes that methodincreasing less attract ...

  8. ACTIVATED-CARBON PRODUCTION FROM CREOSOTE-TREATED WASTE WOOD

    SBC: MBR Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A method is proposed to convert creosote-treated waste wood into high-gradegranular activated carbon, with surface area of 900-1800 m2/gram. Creosote,widely used to protect wood, is a hazardous substance, ID# NA9189. Creosotetreated waste wood consists of utility poles, pier posts, and railroad ties. InNew Jersey about 50,000 ton/year are collected, while over the entire USA, anestimated 1.5 M ...

  9. A CONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITORING DEVICE FOR AIRBORNE METALS

    SBC: OPTOMECHANICAL ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Novel Method for DBP Precursor Removal

    SBC: Universal Fuel Development            Topic: N/A

    The treatment and disinfection of water for drinking continues to be a major public health issue. It is clear that disinfection methods involving chlorine compounds result in the formation of byproducts that constitute a health risk. The proposed work addresses the removal of the disinfection byproducts (DBPs), especially the haloacetic acids, or their humate and fulvate precursors by using an i ...
