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. INSTRUMENT FOR MONITORING FINE, RESPIRABLE PARTICULATE MATTER IN FLUE GASES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The flue gases of combustion-type power plants contain small, respirable ash andfume particles which originate from the inorganic species in the fuel. Coalburning power plants, for example, have a notorious reputation for spewing outflue gas particles originating from the mineral mater in the coal. These fluegas particles (10 microns in diameter) must be characterized for two reasons:1) to deter ...

  2. A NITROGEN DIOXIDE MONITOR BASED ON NONDISPERSIVE VISIBLE OPTICAL DETECTION

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

    The problem addressed in this project is the need to monitor oxides of nitrogen(NOx, ie NO and NO2) levels in the combustion gases of stationary sources suchas power plants in order to facilitate on-line control of the scrubbers that willbe used to remove those pollutants. Since the measurements are in the parts permillion range, simpler and less expensive instruments than those currently used,su ...

  3. Low Emissions Water Heater Burner

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Millions of gas fired residential and commercial water heaters are installed nationwide. Uncontrolled NOx emissions from these units are high, relative to industrial low NOx burner emissions. New low cost approaches to control NOx are needed, to limit emission from water heaters.

  4. Minimum Emission Burner System for Water-Tube Boilers

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Non-attachment air quality regions will require the implementation of ultra-low-NOx boiler burner systems. Currently, only costly Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems can achieve 9 ppm NOx emissions. Alternative and inexpensive low NOx burners, that can meet the regulations without SCR, are urgently needed by the utilities industry. Altex Technologies Corporation has identified the Minim ...

  6. LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE MONITORING OF SOLVENT RECOVERY PROCESSES

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    Developments in on-site spent solvent recovery have implications for reducedenvironmental pollution in the dry cleaning, furniture and paint manufacturingindustries as well as in a range of commercial services. Effluents from solventrecovery operations include fugitive emissions, vent stack gases and water/solvent mixtures. At present, the scale of solvent-recovery operations incertain industrie ...

  7. The Use of Recycled Solid Automotive Paint Wastes as Ingredients in Automotive Sealant Products

    SBC: Aster Inc.            Topic: N/A

    About 75,000,000 lbs of paint sludge is generated by the U.S. automotive industry each year. This type of waste and (similar streams from other industries) make significant contributions to landfills. The solution proposed by ASTER, Inc., proven feasible during the Phase I of this work, is to recycle the paint sludge into ingredients for automotive sealants. This new approach results in waste g ...

  8. NOVEL PERVAPORATION SYSTEM FOR RECOVERY OF ORGANICS FROM HAZARDOUS WASTE STREAMS

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

    The U.S. chemical industry accounts for over 200 million tons/year of hazardousliquid waste containing organic chemicals. These waste streams are difficult totreat using conventional technologies such as carbon adsorption and steamstripping. Membrane processes--particularly pervaporation--offer energy and costadvantages over conventional techniques. However, current pervaporationmembrane-module ...

  10. CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL FROM CHEMICALLY ACTIVATED FLY ASH

    SBC: By-products Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    Out of 50 million tons of fly ash generated each year in the United States, only27% is reused or recycled. The remaining 73% is landfilled which presentspotential environmental problems in the future. This projects main objective isto develop a new class of construction material from the Chemically Activated FlyAsh (CAFA) in conjunction with fine and coarse aggregates, and determinepertinent mec ...
