  2. Automated Removal of Brominated Flame Retardant Material From a Mixed E-waste Plastics Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    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 landfills and leaching into the water supply. Because of 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 d ...

  4. A Micro-Variable Circular Orifice (MVOC) Fuel Injector with Variable Spray Angles and Patterns for Reducting NOx Emissions from Diesel Engines

    SBC: QUANTLOGIC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Diesel engines are widely used due to their high fuel efficiency. However, conventional diesel engines have high NOx and soot emissions. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for NOx reduction is less accepted by the construction industry due to complexity and cost. In-cylinder NOx reduction is more desirable. When low temperature combustion and/or premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI) combus ...

  5. Sensitive, Quantitative, and Portable Anatoxin Assay using Aptamers and Quantum Dot Nanoshell Reporting

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project directly addresses an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for improved detection and measurement techniques including screening kits for algal neurotoxins (especially cyanobacterial anatoxin) and cytotoxins in drinking water systems. Bloom-forming cyanobacteria have been observed in water bodies, including drinking water reservoirs all over the world. Several ...

  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 ...
