The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. REMOVAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM GASEOUS EFFLUENT STREAMS BY NOVEL PERFLUOROMEMBRANES

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EFFLUENT STREAMS ARE A SERIOUS AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM. CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR VOCS HAVE BEEN OXIDATION OR CARBON ABSORPTION BUT RECENTLY MEMRANES HAVE SHOWN EFFECTIVENESS. PRESENT MEMBRANE PROCESSES WORK BY PREFERENTIALLY PASSING VOCS (VERSUS AIR) THROUGH THE MEMBRANE AND THEN COMPRESSING AND CONDENSING OUT DOWNSTREAM VOCS. ADVANTAGES OF THIS MEMBRANE PROCESS INCLU ...

  2. AN INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF CHLORINATED COMPOUNDS IN THE VAPOR PHASE

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF OFF-GAS TREATMENT DURING REMEDIATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES CAN TYPICALLY INCREASE THE COST BY 50% OR MORE. THIS RESEARCH IS TARGETED TOWARDS DEVELOPING A SIMPLE COST EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO DESTROY CHLORINATED ORGANIC SOLVENTS IN THE VAPOR PHASE. THE PROCESS USES A DRY CHEMICAL AT A SLIGHTLY ELEVATED TEMPERATURE. THE RESEARCH INVOLVES TESTING OF A VARIETY OF RELATED DRY CHEMICALS IN ...

  3. CATALYTIC BRIDGE CHEMICAL MONITOR

    SBC: Envirochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A CONCEPT FOR A CHEMICAL MONITOR BASED ON DIFFERENTIAL CATALYTIC REACTIVITIES AND LARGE REACTION EXOTHERMICITIES. THE SIMPLICITY OF THE PROPOSED SENSOR CONCEPT PROMISES AN ECONOMIC AND RELIABLE MONITOR FOR IN-SITU MEASUREMENT OF A VARIETY OF GASES. IN THIS PROJECT, ENVIROCHEM, INC., WILL INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF THIS CONCEPT FOR MEASURING AMMONIA IN FLUE GASES. A SENSI ...

  4. SELECTIVE ELIMINATION OF WASTE IN A METAL FINISHING OPERATION

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CHROMATE CONVERSION COATINGS ARE ROUTINELY APPLIED TO CADMIUM IN ELECTROPLATING. THIS METAL FINISHING PROCESS GENERATES LARGE QUANTITIES OF HAZARDOUS HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM AND HEAVY-METAL WASTE. THIS IS A MAJOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. CONSEQUENTLY, AN ENVIRONMENTALLY BENIGN COATING FINISH IS PROPOSED AS A SUITABLE ALTERNATIVE TO THE CHROMAT CONVERSION COATING. THIS COATING WILL BE APPLIED USING THE U ...

  5. A NOVEL PROCESS FOR HEAVY METAL REMOVAL FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTE WATER

    SBC: Lsr Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROTECTION OF GROUND-WATER AND MARINE WATERS IS A COMPLEX ISSUE AND A VITAL PUBLIC CONCERN. ONCE CONTAMINATED,IT CAN BE TECHNICALLY DIFFICULT AND ENORMOUSLY EXPENSIVE TO CLEAN UP. ONE WAY TO PROTECT THESE WATERS FROM CONTAMINATION IS THOUGH THE CONTROL OF INDUSTRIAL DISCHARGES. OFTEN THOUGH, CONTROL PROCESSES ARE NOT PRACTICAL IN TREATING HIGH FLOW RATES OR THOSE WITH RELATIVELY LOW CONTAMINANT CO ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. RECYCLE AND REUSE OF VOCS FROM FUGITIVE EMISSIONS AND SMALL VENT STREAMS

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS OF 1990 INCLUDED STANDARDS FOR VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS FROM EQUIPMENT LEAKS (FUGITIVE EMISSIONS) AND FROM SMALL VENT STREAMS. SUCH EMISSIONS ARE ESTIMATED TO TOTAL 330 MILLION KG/YEAR; ADDITIONAL CONTROLS REQUIRED BY THE NEW ACT ARE EXPECTED TO COST INDUSTRY ALMOST $120 MILLION/YEAR FOR THE NEXT DECADE AND BEYOND. VERY SMALL (1-3 SCFM) MEMBRANE VAPOR ...

  8. A NEW MEMBRANE PROCESS FOR AIR POLLUTION MINIMIZATION IN CHLOR-ALKALI PLANTS

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CHLORINE RANKS AMONG THE TEN MOST IMPORTANT COMMODITY CHEMICALS. APPROXIMATELY 54% OF THE TOTAL U.S. CHLORINE PRODUCTION IS LIQUEFIED FOR SALE OR FOR IN-PLANT TRANSPORT. TAIL GAS PRODUCED FROM THE CHLORINE LIQUEFACTION PROCESS IS THE PRINCIPAL SOURCE OF CHLORINE-CONTAINING WASTE GAS STREAMS PRODUCED BY CHLOR-ALKALI PLANTS. CURRENTLY, SUCH STREAMS ARE TREATED BY ABSORPTION IN CARBON TETRACHLORIDE; ...

  9. PLASMA IGNITION RETARD FOR NOX REDUCTION

    SBC: Plasmachines Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMACHINES, INC., HAS RECENTLY DETERMINED THAT AN INNOVATIVE PLASMA IGNITION SYSTEM APPEARS TO EXTEND THE OPERATING LIMITS OF IGNITION SYSTEMS. THIS ALLOWS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED NOX REDUCTION. AN IMMEDIATE APPLICATION WOULD BE THE LARGE SCALE NATURAL GAS RECIPROCATING ENGINES USED TO DRIVE NATURAL GAS TRANSMISSION PIPELINE COMPRESSORS.

  10. EMULSION LIQUID MEMBRANE EXTRACTION OF SELENIUM FROM REFINERY WASTE WASTE WATERS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SELENIUM IS PRESENTLY THE PRIMARY WASTEWATER TREATMENT CHALLENGE FOR MANY WEST COAST PETROLEUM REFINERIES, AND SELENIUM IS ALSO PRESENT IN SIGNIFICANT QUANTITIES IN WASTEWATERS FROM COAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS. A SUSPECTED CARCINOGEN, SELENIUM IS ALSO HARMFUL TO FISH AND FOWL WHEN PRESENT IN SURFACE WATERS. PROCESSES DEVELOPED FOR SELENIUM REMOVAL FROM DRINKING WATER (ANION EXCHANGE AND ACTIVATED ALUM ...
