  1. Environmentally Friendly Borate-Based Wood Preservative

    SBC: Liquid Lignin Company            Topic: B

    This natural organic retention project proposes using lignin from emerging biorefineries to allow borates to be used as wood preservatives for exterior applications exposed to rain. Enhancing retention of environmentally-friendly borates has been the“holy grail” of the industry for decades. We believe this team and technical approach are very well suited for this challenge because: • The ...

  2. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Polysaccharides Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Landfills and waterway are inundated with tons of non-degradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified which can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics while already meeting the price of other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the pro ...

  3. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Biotech SE, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Landfills and waterways are inundated with tons of nondegradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified that can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics at the same price as other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the Phase I project will ...

  4. Conversion of Natural Adhesive to Marketable Form

    SBC: Montana Biotech SE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Most of the 6 billion pounds of adhesives used in the United States each year are derived from petrochemicals; many still contain volatile organic compounds. Montana Biotech SE, Inc., has developed a process for producing a natural polymer with excellent adhesive properties. Tensile strength on bare aluminum is up to 10.3 MPa (1,500 psi). Made from a renewable resource, biodegradable, and safe ...

  6. Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water Using a Novel Hybrid Sorbent

    SBC: VEETech, P.C.            Topic: N/A

    VEETech, in conjunction with Lehigh University, will synthesize and test novel hybrid sorbents (HIXs) for the removal of arsenic from drinking water. The HIXs are polymeric/inorganic hybrid sorbents in which cation exchange resin beads are irreversibly and uniformly coated with hydrated ferric oxide (HFO) materials. The HIXs are expected to demonstrate superior selectivity and capacity over othe ...

  8. PROCESS MODIFICATION TO MINIMIZE TOXIC CHEMICAL GENERATION IN VERMICULITE PROCESSING

    SBC: Enoree Minerals Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IN 1985, 947 BILLION GALLONS OF WATER WERE CONTAMINATED WITH1.4 BILLION POUNDS OF CHMICAL REAGENTS IN FROTH FLOTATION SEPARATION OF INDUSTRIAL MINERALS IN THE UNITED STATES. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THESE APPROXIMATE QUANTITIES WERE ALSO USED IN 1986 AND 1987. OF THIS TOTAL, APPROXIMATELY 42.2 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER WERE CONTAMINATED WITH 8.6 MILLION POUNDS OF CHEMICAL REAGENTS IN VERMICULITE FROTH ...
