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. "REDUCTION OF ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY TOXIC AIR EMISSIONS THROUGH THE USE OF A NOVEL VENT GAS SCRUBBER"

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE AMERICAN MICROELECTRONICS INDUSTRY HAS SPAWNED NEW ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCESSES USED TO PREPARE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS, THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC DEVICES. MOST OF THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN IGNORED BECAUSE RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMES OF CHEMICALS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION. HOWEVER, THE EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH TOXICITY OF THE ...

  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. REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATERS BY PERVAPORATION

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM WASTEWATERS IS A KEY ASPECT OF THIS COUNTRY'S POLLUTION-CONTROL EFFORT. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT TRAINS ARE COMPLICATED AND EXPENSIVE. IN THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM, WE WILL INITIATE DEVELOPMENT OF A MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS, CALLED PERVAPORATION, FOR THE REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF ORGANIC POLLUTANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATERS. THIS PROCESS HAS THE CAPABILITY ...

  6. A PROCESS TO PRODUCE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARDS WITHOUT GENERATING LIQUID OR SOLID WASTE

    SBC: BH ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OVER 25 BILLION GALLONS OF WASTE WATER ARE PRODUCED EACH YEAR AS BY-PRODUCTS OF CIRCUIT BOARD PRODUCTION. WASTES, INCLUDING COPPER, LEAD, NICKEL, CHROMIUM, DISSOLVED ORGANICSACIDS, CAUSTICS AND CHLORINATED SOLVENTS MUST BE TREATED ANDDISPOSED OF OR RECYCLED. COMPLIANCE WITH ANTI-POLLUTION REGULATIONS HAS BECOME EXTREMELY COSTLY AND INCREASINGLY COMPLEX. A TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED IN THIS PROJECT FOR ...

  8. PROCESSING OF SPENT PETROLEUM RESID DESULFURIZATION CATA- LYSTS FOR VALUE RECOVERY AND HAZARDOUS WASTE ELIMINATION

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    ABOUT 28 MILLION POUNDS OF SPENT HYDROTREATING CATALYST CONTAINING $23,000,000 IN RECOVERABLE CHEMICALS WAS DIS POSED OF IN THE UNITED STATES DURING 1985. ONLY 20% OF THE SPENT CATALYST UNDERWENT SOME FORM OF RECLAMATION PROCESS- ING. THE AMOUNT OF SPENT HYDROTREATING CATALYST REQUIRING DISPOSAL IS EXPECTED TO DOUBLE BY 1994 WITH THE EX DISPOSAL IS EXPECTED TO DOUBLE BY 1994 WITH THE HYDRODESUL- F ...

  9. A HIGH EFFICIENCY TRIVALENT CHROMIUM BATH FOR HARD CHROME PLATING

    SBC: Electrochemical Innovations            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH EFFICIENCY PLATING BATH WITH CHROMIUM PRESENT IN THE TRIVALENT STATE ONLY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN THE LABORATORY INFOR HARD CHROME PLATING. THIS PROCESS WILL BE TESTED ON AN INDUSTRIAL SCALE TO DETERMINE ITS ACCEPTABILITY FOR PLATING AND ITS EFFECTIVENESS IN ELIMINATING HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM FROM SOLID CHROMIUM PLATING WASTES. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS RESEARCH WILL LEAD TO A VIABLE TRIVALENT ...

  10. "A HYBRID FLUIDIZED BED INCINERATOR FOR HAZARDOUS WASTES CONTAINING METALS"

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH INCINERATION IS AN ATTRACTIVE MEANS FOR DESTROYING ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE, TWO POTENTIAL PROBLEMS ARE (1) THE INCOMPLETE COMBUSTION OF WASTE COMPOUNDS DUE TO NON-OPTIMAL OR IMPROPER OPERATION (E.G., INADEQUATE ATOMIZATION, POOR MIXING, OR QUENCHING) AND (2) VOLATILIZATION AND RELEASE INTO THE ENVIRONMENT OF TOXIC METALS (E.G., AS, CD, HG, PB) CONTAINED IN THE WASTE. ADDING TO THE CONCERN ...
