  1. Organophosphate Degrading Enzymes

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Agve BioSystems in collaboration with Carl A. Batt propose to develop decon-nanoparticles which will leverage ongoing opportunities in enzyme engineering and the fabrication of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Enhanced performance will be engineered into the system to improve the catalytic degradation of chemical agents. Through an iterative process optimizing the particles and the enzyme ...

  2. Nano-Enhanced Composite Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) are a key pollution control device in air pollution control devices for small oil and coal-fired industrial boilers. ESPs can operate with an efficiency of 98 to 99% for the removal of mercury and fly ash from the flue gas stream. With an electrostatic precipitator fly ash particles are charged electrically as the flue gas passes through the precipitator allowi ...

  3. The Use of Recycled Solid Automotive Paint Wastes as Ingredients in Automotive Sealant Products

    SBC: Aster Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  4. SAFE AND ECONOMICAL CHLORINE DIOXIDE GENERATION

    SBC: Eltech Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SAFE, COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO CHLORINE TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER FOR DISTRIBUTION AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR SOME TIME. CHLORINE DIOXIDE IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHLORINE FOR THE TREATMENT OF EVEN POOR QUALITY WATER SUPPLIES AND THE REDUCTION OF POTENTIAL CANCER CAUSING CHLORINATED ORGANICS. ITS WIDESPREAD USE HAS BEEN INHIBITED BY THE COSTS AND/OR COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCTIO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Novel Process for Functional Chromium Plating from Non-Toxic Trivalent Chromium (Cr(III)) Plating Bath

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Enabling Commercialization of a Lead-Free Coating Manufacturing Process

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR program addresses the need for a manufacturing process that enables high reliability Pb-free tin coatings. Pb-free tin solders used in electronics applications have demonstrated whisker growth, due in part to compressive stresses within the deposit, causing failures of the components. Faraday proposes an enhanced Faradayic deposition process for Pb-free tin solders that have co ...

    SBIR Phase I 2009 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Chromium-Free Corrosion-Resistant Hybrid UV Coatings

    SBC: DR. BEN CURATOLO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is designed to determine the feasibility of preparing an environmentally friendly chromium-free solvent-free hybrid UV resin coating system suitable for applications such as industrial, automotive, and aerospace corrosion resistance. In particular, the overall objective of this program is to determine the most appropriate segregation of comp ...

  10. 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 ...
