  1. Circuit Board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America. Significant amounts of e-waste are actually not waste, but rather components recoverable for reuse, resale or recycled for their precious metals. In 2010, 3,320,000 tons of e-waste were generated (per “Municipal Solid Waste Generation, Recycling and Disposal in the United States; Tables and Figures for 2012,” ...

  6. High-Power Vertical-Junction Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Low-Dislocation-Density GaN by Epitaxial Lift-Off [Phase IIS]

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: 1

    In this program, we will develop a breakthrough technology that will enable wafer-scale epitaxial lift-off (ELO) of GaN power device heterostructures from low-dislocation-density bulk GaN substrates. This technology will be used to provide a low-cost vertical junction field effect transistors (VJFETs) with high breakdown voltage (greater than 1,200 V) and high current capability (greater than 100 ...

  7. Mycological Biopolymer as a Replacement for Expanded Plastic Foams

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: B

    Plastics and petroleum-based foams are a conventional solution for the material needs of many industries. Today these non-biodegradable, fossil fuel derived products compose 13 percent of all municipal solid waste streams, as opposed to 1 percent in 1960. This waste stream is associated with a number of environmental concerns, including greenhouse gas generation from incineration, as well as land ...

  10. Simultaneous Removal of Arsenite As (III) and Arsenate As (V) From Drinking Water Using a Novel Photoactive Adsorbent

    SBC: Microporous Oxides Science and Technology, LLC            Topic: N/A

    With the maximum contaminant level for arsenic in drinking water decreasing from 50 ppb to 10 ppb in 2006, a heavy financial burden will be placed on small water-treatment facilities serving less than 10,000 people. At present, adsorption on activated alumina is preferred for removing arsenic in these small facilities because this process has relatively low capital costs and low operating expense ...
