  1. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  2. ELECTROTHERMAL REFORMING OF HAZARDOUS ORGANICS AND WATER- SOLUBLE WASTES

    SBC: A1-chem Fuels Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A1-CHEM FUELS, INC. HAS A PATENT PENDING FOR AN ELECTROTHER-MAL DEVICE TO PRODUCE MEDIUM TO HIGH BTU FUEL GAS FROM WASTEHYDROCARBON SOURCES. THIS UNIT OPERATES BY PRODUCING A HIGH-VOLTAGE ALTERNATING CURRENT ELECTRIC DISCHARGE ACROSS THE INTERFACE BETWEEN A WASTE HYDROCARBON AND WATER. THE EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURE WITHIN THE ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE IS SUFFICIENT TO CAUSE LOCALIZED FAST PYROLYSIS OF ...

  3. MEMS Biosensor for In Situ Drinking Water Analysis

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of causative agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and other pathogens in water supplies presents a critical issue. Transmitted through water and animals, these organisms provide a reservoir of infection, which results in the excretion of the environmentally stable cysts or oocysts that are impervious to inactivation by many drinking water disinfectants. Cryptosporidium infections a ...

  4. ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER UTILIZATION IN CONTROL ROOM FOR SURVEILLANCE OF PLANT SAFETY

    SBC: Dynatrek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRINCIPAL SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE FOR A BC-CONTROLLER WHOSE PURPOSE IS TO SUPPLY AND CONSTANTLY UPDATE THE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS (BC) TO AN ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER, ENABLING IT TO FAITHFULLY TRACK A NUMBER OF THE CONTINUOUSLY MEASURED PLANT PARAMETERS. THE BC-CONTROLLER SAMPLES PLANT MEASUREMENTS FROM THE PLANT COMPUTER MEMORY. THE PLANT ANALYZER, IN TURN, PROVIDES D ...

  6. Development of a Multianalyte Biosensor Instrument

    SBC: Ergopedia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will develop a multianalyte biosensor field screening instrument (MBFI). The MBFI has the potential to reduce the annual cost of environmental analyses in the United States by more than $20 million and to reduce the analysis turnaround time from approximately 19 days to less than 15 minutes. The major barrier to the development of a biosensor instrument for environmental mea ...

  7. MERCURY-FREE HIGH CRI EFFICIENT LAMP

    SBC: Fusion Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    FUSION SYSTEMS HAS DEVELOPED A MERCURY-FREE, HIGH COLOR RENDERING, EFFICIENT LAMP USING PROPRIETARY BUT BENIGN LAMP FILLS. THEY PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE VARIATIONS OF THE LAMP SYSTEM PARAMETERS WITH THE DUAL GIALS OF FURTHER INCREASING SYSTEM EFFICIENCY BY 1.5 X AND TO IMPROVE LAMP STARTING DOWN TO MINUS 40C. BOTH FACTORS ARE CRITICAL TOWARD ACHIEVING COMMERCIAL SUCCESS. THE NEW LAMP IS A MICROWAVE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. ULTRA-TRACE ANALYSIS OF WATER AND WASTEWATER

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IONICS RESEARCH INC. (IRI) HAS DETERMINED THAT UNCOATED CAPILLARY COLUMNS CAN BE USED TO CONCENTRATE ORGANICS FROM WATER. THE METHOD IS EXCEEDINGLY SIMPLE AND RAPID (10 MINUTES PER 100 ML), YET EFFECTIVE. IRI PLANS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNIQUE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENT SUITABLE FOR THA NALYSIS OF ORGANICS AT THE PART-PER-TRILLION LEVEL IN WATER AND WASTEWATER. SUCH AN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. PREDICTION OF CHECK VALVE PERFORMANCE & DEGRADATION IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kalsi Engineering, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS AIMED AT DEVELOPING TECHNIQUES FOR PREDICTING CHECK VALVE PERFORMANCE AND ITS INTERNAL COMPONENTS DEGRADATION IN PRACTICAL PIPING SYSTEMS USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE EFFORT IS TO SYSTEMATICALLY EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF UPSTREAM DISTURBANCES WHICH ARE WITHIN 10 DIAMETERS UPSTREAM. BY USING A COMBINED THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH, GENERALIZED NONDIMENSI ...

  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 ...
