  1. Micro-discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can b detected and the focus of this Phase II project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, then move to field tests of sampling and analysis. Finall ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel Field Deployable Electrochemical Sensor for the Detection and Long-Term Monitoring of Pollutants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants of groundwater in the country. When released in the subsurface, they tend to persist below the water table, and it can take decades or centuries before slow-moving groundwater completely dissolves accumulations of chlorinated solvent product. Analytical methods currently available for monitoring these compounds require extensive ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Low Cost Heavy Metals Removal from Hazardous Wastewaters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Heavy metal species mobilized and released into the environment by technological activities tend to persist indefinitely, circulating and eventually accumulating throughout the food chain, posing a serious threat to the environment, animals, and humans. Typical industrial metal-containing discharges can be considered as point-source emissions, which in turn offer the possibility of feasible remed ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and long-term mo ...

  8. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptmer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) proce ...

  9. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...
