  1. A PROPOSED CONTINUOUS MONITOR FOR STACK EMISSION OR PROCESS EFFLUENTS WITH RECORDER/CONTROLLER FUNCTION

    SBC: Moduspec Co.            Topic: N/A

    A SOURCE ANALYZER IS DESCRIBED THAT CAN MONITOR STACKS AND PROCESS STREAMS AND EXERCISE COMPUTER FEEDBACK CONTROL TO OPTIMIZE COMBUSTION OR OTHER PROCESSES TO MINIMIZE POLLUTION. THE PROPOSED MONITOR EMPLOYS THE OPTICAL TECHNIQUE OF IR GAS FILTER CORRELATION FOR ALL SPECIES, USESEXTRACTIVE SAMPLING BY MEANS OF A PROBE, IS SMALL IN SIZE, RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE, AND CAN BE CONTROLLED BY AN INTERNALO ...

  2. TRACE METAL AEROSOL CONTROL IN INCINERATORS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INCINERATION OF MOST INDUSTRIAL WASTES, INCLUDING MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE, RESULTS IN THE EMISSION OF POTENTIALLY TOXIC TRACE METAL AEROSOLS. MOST OF THE TRACE METAL SPECIES IN THE WASTE FEED, SUCH AS LEAD, CROMIUM, MERCURY AND ARSENIC, COMPLETELY VOLATILIZE IN THE COMBUSTION ZONE, AND SUBSEQUENTLY CONDENSE AND CONCENTRATE IN THE SUBMICRON-SIZEDASH PARTICLES (FUME). THIS SIZE FRACTION CANNOT BE REMO ...

  3. SURFACTANT FLUSHING/WASHING--AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL ARE ORIENTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL SURFACTANT FLUSHING AND WASHING AS A LOW-COST, LOW-IMPACT, LOW-RISK, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOVAL AND ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN SOIL. THESE OBJECTIVES ARE: DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONIC SURFACTANT SOLUTION AT CONCENTRATIONS ABOVE THE CRITICAL MICELLE CONCENTRATION ...

  4. TOTAL OXIDATION OF CONTAMINATED LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS OVER AEROGEL CATALYSTS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROJECT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF A CATALYTIC OXIDATION OF CONTAMINANT LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS USING NOVEL AEROGEL CATALYSTS.THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE PROPOSED CATALYTIC COMBUSTION PROCESS IS THAT IT CAN OPERATE AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE THAN THE CONVENTIONAL INCINERATORS THUS CONTROLLING NOX EMISSIONS. IT WILL ALSO BE MORE EFFICIENT IN OBTAINING VIRTU ...

  5. DRY SCRUBBING OF SOX AND NOX OVER LANTHANIDE-OXYGEN- SULFUR COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. DETERMINATION OF SOLIDS RESIDENCE TIME DISTRIBUTION IN CONTINUOUSLY FED, SHALLOW FLUIDIZED BEDS: TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FUEL EFFICIENT CONTAMINATED SOILS INCINERATOR

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SOILS CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS POSE A THREAT TO THEENVIRONMENT, IN THAT THE CHEMICALS MAY BE SLOWLY RELEASED AND INCORPORATED INTO THE FOOD CHAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURE, THERMAL OXIDATION OFFERS ONE METHOD OF DECONTAMINATING THESESOILS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THE NORMALLY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS ABSORBED ON SOILS, FUEL IS REQUIRED TO HEAT THE SOIL MASS TO TEMPERATURES NEAR 2,000 F. CUR ...

  7. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kalsi Engineering, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  8. STEAM REFORMING OF MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER SLUDGE

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MTIC INDIRECT STEAM REFORMING PROCESS OFFERS A COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING WASTE-TO-ENERGY INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SLUDGE WASTE (MSW) OR REFUSE- DERIVED FUEL (RDF). THE PROCESS HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR RESOLVING MANY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH INCINERATION, ESPECIALLY IN THE CONTROL OF CHLORINATED DIOXINS AND FURANS AS WELL AS EMISSIONS OF TOXIC METALS; PARTICULA ...

  9. REDUCTION OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION BY MEMBRANE STRIPPING OOF WATERBORNE RADON GAS

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT SIMULATION MODEL/CODE

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT MODEL/CODE FOR THE NRC. THIS CODE WOULD BE USED TO SIMULATE THE MOVEMENT, DISPERSION, DECAY, AND DEPOSITION OF RADIONUCLIDES RELEASED FROM SEVERE NUCLEAR REACTOR ACCIDENTS, SUCH AS THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT. IT IS DESIRED THAT ALL RELEVANT PHYSICAL AND CHEMICA ...
