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 AIR TOXIC METALS EMISSIONS FROM FOSSIL-FUEL COMBUSTION SOURCES

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AIR TOXIC METALS AND THEIR COMPOUNDS ARE PRODUCED FROM THE COMBUSTION OF FOSSIL-FUELS. THE COMBUSTION OF COAL AND FUEL OIL REPRESENTS AN EXTREMELY LARGE CATEGORY OF SOURCE EMISSIONS. RESEARCH IS PROPOSED THAT WILL PROVIDE A MEANS FOR REMOVING THE VOLATILE METAL CONTENT OF FLUE GAS GENERATED FROM POWER AND STEAM GENERATING PLANTS USING ZEOLITIC OR CARBONACEOUS ADSORBENTS. A LABORATORY-SCALE FIXTURE ...

  2. LOW COST SYSTEM FOR LEAD DETECTION IN LEAD PAINT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LEAD POISONING IN THE UNITED STATED IS A SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEM, ESTIMATED TO AFFECT SOME 3 TO 4 MILLION CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF SIX YEARS OLD. TO PREVENT THIS NUMBER FROM GROWING, EPA HAS UNDERTAKEN THE ROLE OF ENCOURAGING THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNIQUES TO MEASURE THE AMOUNT OF LEAD IN LEAD PAINT. RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A MUCH IMPROVED, PORTABLE, X-RAY FLUORESCENC ...

  3. SLUDGE EVAPORATION & EXTRACTION PROCESS

    SBC: Alpha Environmental Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    BIOLOGICAL AND HAZARDOUS SLUDGES AND SLURRIES REPRESENT A MAJOR DISPOSAL PROBLEM. DEWATERING IS A MAJOR COST ELEMENT. THIS TWO-STEP TECHNOLOGY INVOLVES A FIRST STEP ACHIEVING ESSENTIALLY COMPLETE DEWATERING IN A BACKMIX REACTOR BY DISPERSION OF SLUDGE IN HEAVY OIL REACTION MEDIA MAINTAINED AT WATER VAPORIZATION TEMPERATURE USING ENERGY EFFICIENT VAPOR RECOMPRESSION. THE OXIDIZABLE IN THE VAPOR PHA ...

  4. BIOSCRUBBING VOLATILE NITROAROMATIC POLLUTANTS FROM AIR: BENCH-SCALE FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS BY BIOSCRUBBING WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO THEIR FEASIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY IN BENCH-SCALE EXPERIMENTS. A MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM ENRICHED ON SELECTED NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS SUCH AS NITROBENZENE OR NITROTOLUENE WILL BE IMMOBILIZED ON A POROUS SOLID MATRIX PACKED INTO A SCRUBBING COLUMN. MEASURED VOLUMES OF AIR, CONTAINING KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NITR ...

  6. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AND RECOVERY WITH A NATURAL ZEOLITE CONTINUOUS ION EXCHANGE THERMAL MULTICOMPONENT FRACTIONATOR

    SBC: Boulder Innovative            Topic: N/A

    ION EXCHANGE IS AN ATTRACTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS FROM WATER AND WASTEWATERS, BUT IT IS COMMONLY FOUND TO BE UNECONOMICAL DUE TO THE HIGH COST OF CHEMICALS AND DISPOSAL OF THE BRINES OR SECONDARY WASTES GENERATED. SEVERAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS TECHNOLOGY ARE PROPOSED TO ALLOW ION EXCHANGE TO BE MORE WIDELY APPLIED TO THE REMOVAL OF TOXIC HEAVY METALS AT SUPERFUND SITES AND IN OTH ...

  7. A DRY SORBENT INJECTION AND FILTRATION PROCESS FOR SO2 AND PARTICULATE REMOVAL FROM FLUE GAS

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    EFFORTS TO MITIGATE DAMAGE TO LAKES, FORESTS, AND OTHER ECOSYSTEMS FROM ACID RAIN HAVE BEEN FOCUSED ON CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR SO2 EMMISSIONS. THE COMBUSTION OF COAL FOR POWER GENERATION HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH APPROXIMATELY 80% OF ALL SO2 EMISSIONS. WHILE FLUE GAS DESULFURIZATION (FGD) TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS WET SCRUBBING, DRY SCRUBBING, AND DRY SORBENT INJECTION HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED, PROBLEMS OF ...

  8. RECLAMATION OF WASTE LUBRICATING OIL USING CERAMIC MEMBRANES

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SUBSTANTIAL AND INCREASING AMOUNTS OF WASTE LUBRICATING OIL ARE IMPROPERLY DISCARDED EVERY YEAR IN THE U.S. IN ADDITION TO THE HARMFUL EFFECTS OF THIS PRACTICE ON THE ENVIRONMENT, UNRECLAIMED LUBRICATING OILS REPRESENT THE LOSS OF A RECOVERABLE RESOOURCE. WHILE CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART RE-REFINING PROCESSES PRODUCT SALEABLE LUBRICATING OIL BASE STOCKS, THEIR PROCESS SCHEMES INVOLVE COMPLEX UNIT OP ...

  10. IN-PLANT REDUCTION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATION IN THE FLUOROCARBON INDUSTRY

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

    THE FLUOROCARBON INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES CURRENTLY GENERATES OVER 1,200,000 POUNDS OF SPENT ANTIMONY FLUOROCARBON CATALYST ANNUALLY IN PRODUCING 1,190 MILLION POUNDS OF FLUOROCARBONS (CFCS, HCFCS, HFCS). THIS SPENT CATALYST IS A MIXTURE OF HALOGENATED ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (HOCS), ANTIMONY, AND ARSENIC HALIDES. IT IS EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS, TOXIC, AND CORROSIVE. IT CONTAINS AT LEAST EIGHT LISTED "C ...
