  1. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential densit ...

  6. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...
