  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X ray fluorescence ins ...

  3. 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
  4. 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 ...

  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. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reduction in dependency of imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has lead to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, that promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Reduced NOx Using On-Board Plasma Generated Hydrogen

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Off road diesel powered equipment (i.e., tractors, dozers, excavators, backhoes, surface equipment, etc.) are designed with lifetimes of more the 25 to 30 years. As such, most of the diesel equipment in use today were manufactured before there were any emission standards at all, much less are up to stringent requirements of modern vehicle emissions. In order to combat this massive source of poll ...
