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. IMPROVED POLLUTION CONTROL USING RAMAN SCATTERING GAS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    REAL TIME ON-LINE ANALYSIS OF STACK GASSES IS NECESSARY TO MONITOR EFFLUENTS AND TO PERMIT FEEDBACK CONTROL OF COMBUSTION PROCESS AND DOWN STREAM SCRUBBER SYSTEMS. MULTIMEDIA POLLUTION ANALYSIS REQUIRES MULTIPLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY WITH PRESENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. CURRENTLY, COMPLEX ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS MUSTBE ASSEMBLED THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, PRONE TO DRIFT, AND DIFFICULT TO OPERATE A ...

  3. DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY THE HDI ELECTRIC ARC PROCESS 11490

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY ELECTRIC ARC PYROLYSIS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE BY OTHERS. THE PRINCIPAL PROBLEMS LIE IN (1) THE SHORT LIFEOF THE ELECTRODES (AND RELATED STRUCTURES) DUE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES INVOLVED, AND (2) THE RELATIVELY HIGH COST OF THE ELECTRIC POWER NEEDED. APPLIED RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSE TO DESTROY ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE B ...

  4. MEMBRANE PERVAPORATION FOR REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES

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

    CONTAMINATION OF THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES BY HAZARDOUS, SYNTHETIC VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS (VOCS) IS BECOMING A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. THIS PROBLEM IS OF GREAT CONCERN WITH RESPECT TO CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER. GROUNDWATER IS THESOURCE OF DRINKING WATER FOR ABOUT HALF THE NATION. THE EPAESTIMATES THAT UP TO 20% OF THE DRINKING WATER THAT COMES FROM GORUNDWATER CONTAINS VOCS. METHODS FOR ...

  5. NOVEL SENSORS FOR METAL-ION DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION

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

    METALS AND METAL COMPLEXES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN MANY INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES. DUE TO THE WIDESPREAD AND LARGE-SCALEUSE OF METALS, MONITORING THEIR PRESENCE IN WASTE STREAMS AND CONTROLLING THEIR LEVELS OF DISCHARGE INTO THE ENVIRON-MENT ARE DIFFICULT AND COSTLY TASKS--TASKS THAT ARE ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT GIVEN THE TOXICITY OF MANY COMMONLY USED METALS. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOR ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED COUPLED-TRANSPORT MEMBRANES FOR THE RECOVERY AND RECYCLE OF METAL IONS

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

    VAST QUANTITIES OF INDUSTRIAL ACIDS, BASES, PROCESSING SOLUTIONS, AND SLUDGES CONTAIN HEAVY METALS. THESE ARE OFTEN HAZARDOUS, AND IF LEFT UNREGULATED, PRESENT A SERIOUS THREAT TO GROUNDWATER AND THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE FOR TREATING INDUSTRIAL WASTES ARE TYPICALLY INADEQUATE AND EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. NEW METHODS ARE CLEARLY NEEDED FOR REMOVING TOXIC METALS FROM PROCESS S ...

  7. RAPID ENZYME IMMUNOASSAY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICAL HAZARDS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MONITORING ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES FOR VARIOUS PESTICIDES AND OTHER HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS HAS BECOME NECESSARY INORDER TO PROTECT THE POPULACE FROM THE CARCINOGENIC AND TOXIC EFFECTSOF THESE MATERIALS. THERE IS CONSIDERABLE CONCERN REGARDINGTHE POSSIBILITY OF THE MATERIALS BECOMING INCORPORATED IN FOODS AND IN WATER SUPPLIES DESTINED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. SINCE THE COSTS OF DOING ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYS ...

  8. OPTRODE DEVELOPMENT FOR REAL-TIME ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN INNOVATIVE OPTRODE DEVICE FOR THE DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, AND QUANTIFICATION OF TRACE LEVELS OF CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS IN WATER. THIS FIBER OPTIC BASED INSTRUMENT WILL HAVE A RESPONSE DETECTOR AND CAN MEASURE CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS AT PARTS PER BILLION CONCENTRATIONS. IT IS ALSO ANTICIPATED THAT THIS INSTRUMENT WILL BE ABLE TO I ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF AN NOX SENSOR FOR SMALL STATIONARY AND MOBILESOURCES

    SBC: Catalytica Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NOX EMISSIONS FROM COMBUSTION PROCESSES ARE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES SUCH AS ACID RAIN, VEGETATION DAMAGE, SMOG AND CHANGES IN THE OZONE LAYER. A NUMBER OF STRATEGIES DIRECTED AT REDUCING NOX EMISSIONS WOULD BENEFIT FROM REAL TIME NOX EMISSIONS MEASUREMENT SINCE THIS WOULD ALLOW FEEDBACK CONTROL OF THE PROCESS. CURRENT INSTRUMENTATION ALLOWS COST EFFECTIVE MONITORING OF VERY L ...
