  1. IMPROVED POLLUTION CONTROL USING RAMAN SCATTERING GAS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    REAL TIME ON-LINE ANALYSIS OF STACK GASSES IS NECESSARY TO MONITOR EFFLUENTS AND TO PERMIT FEEDBACK CONTROL OF COMBUSTION PROCESS AND DOWN STREAM SCRUBBER SYSTEMS. MULTIMEDIA POLLUTION ANALYSIS REQUIRES MULTIPLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY WITH PRESENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. CURRENTLY, COMPLEX ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS MUSTBE ASSEMBLED THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, PRONE TO DRIFT, AND DIFFICULT TO OPERATE A ...

  2. SYSTEM OF CONTINUOUS EXTENSIVE MONITORING OF DRINKING, NATURAL AND INDUSTRIAL WATERS

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  3. NEW METHOD FOR CONTROLLING THE NOX FROM STATIONARY GAS ENGINES

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    STATIONARY GAS ENGINES PRODUCE A DISPROPORTIONATELY LARGE SHARE OF THE TOTAL NOX EMISSIONS IN THE U.S., BUT NO AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A SATISFACTORY MEANS OF REDUCING THEIR EMISSIONS. THESE ENGINES ARE PREDOMINANTLY TWO CYCLE AND PRODUCE AN EXHAUST HAVING A HIGH RATIO OF OXYGEN (O2) TO NITRIC OXIDE (NO). THUS, A SELECTIVE NO REDUCTION TECHNIQUE IS NEEDED WHICH CONVERTS THE NO TO NITROGEN (N2) ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AT THE PPB LEVEL FROM CULINARY WATER USING A NOVEL MACROCYCLE-SILICA GEL DEVICE

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO HAVE A MTHOD FOR EFFICIENT, COST EFFEC- TIVE, AND SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF PB(II), AG(I), CD(II) AND HG(II) FROM POTABLE WATER TO LEVELS WELL BELOW THEIR EPA LIMITS. SUCH A METHOD COULD BE USED BY BOTH MUNICIPAL WATER WASTE TREATMENT PLALNTS. THE INTERACTION OF THE MACROCYCLE TETRAAZA-18CROWN WITH THE METALS OF INTEREST IS OF SUFFI- CIENT STRENGTH AND SELECTIVITY TO REMOVE THE ME ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A NOVEL IDEA FOR PHOTO-CONVERSION OF HAZARDOUS CHLOROCARBON INDUSTRIAL WASTES TO USABLE HYDROCARBON

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  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. PT/RH/Y-STABILIZED-ZIRCONIA CATALYST FOR THE TREATMENT OF AUTOMOTIVE EXHAUST GAS

    SBC: PCP Consulting & Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF PLATINUM AND RHODIUM IN THE THREE-WAY CATALYST ACCOUNTS FOR A MAJOR FRACTION OF THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH TREATMENT OF AUTOMOTIVE EXHAUST. THEREFORE, STRIVING TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER LEVEL OF POLLUTANT REMOVAL BY INCREASING THE PLATINUM AND RHODIUM CONTENTS IN THE THREE-WAY CATALYST IS NOT ECONOMICALLY ATTRACTIVE. IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ALTER-NATIVE METHOD FOR ACHIEVING A HIGHER LEVEL OF POLL ...
