  1. Low-Cost Mercury Sorbents Derived From Waste Tires

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

    In this research project, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., addresses two important environmental problems: (1) removal and recovery of mercury from combustion/incineration flue gas, and (2) reprocessing of waste tires into value-added products. Coal combustion and incineration of municipal and hazardous wastes results in air pollution due to emissions of trace amounts of heavy metals. Because of the ...

  2. Remote Sensing Instrument for Particulates and NOx From Heavy-Duty Diesel Vehicles

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

    To assess the effectiveness of new controls, new measurement techniques are needed to measure emissions from in-use diesel vehicles. The goal of this project is to develop a portable remote sensing instrument for particulate matter (PM) and gaseous pollutants. Aerodyne Research, Inc., already has developed a dual-wavelength tunable infrared laser absorption instrument for the crossroad remote sens ...

  3. Advanced Low Temperature Emissions Control Technology for MTBE Destruction

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    There is an immediate and growing need for technology to remediate groundwater and soils contaminated with methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) as well as with associated benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX) compounds. Gasoline containing MTBE has leaked into groundwater, presenting both health risks and objectionable odor and taste in lakes, aquifers, and urban wells in 49 states. Due ...

  4. High-Authority Fuel Injection

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Promising developments in diesel injection technology have given rise to an increasing acceptance of diesel engines in the passenger vehicle market, especially in Europe. As with heavy-duty vehicles, more stringent emission levels are achieved via control of the diesel combustion process through precise timing and metering of the injected fuel quantities. In particular, European manufacturers such ...

  5. Paint Removal From Architectural Surfaces With an Innovative Pulsed Light Source

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    Environmental regulations for air emission and waste disposal have created a need for paint removal methods that are both economically and environmentally acceptable. Furthermore, architectural surfaces painted prior to 1978 have lead paint that should be removed to meet U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) lead concentration standards. Improved paint removal techniques are neede ...

  6. Nontoxic Sparker Control of Zebra Mussels

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    Zebra mussels are a nonindigenous aquatic nuisance that now extends from the Great Lakes to the mouth of the Mississippi River. Zebra mussels clog intake pipes, screens, cooling systems, and so on, and are a serious problem. The Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act and Amendments mandate control of zebra mussel infestations. Chlorine effectively controls zebra mussels but prod ...

  7. A High Resolution, Ultra High Frame Rate Visible Light Imager for High Speed Digital Photography

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "R3 Logic, Incorporated proposes to develop a high-resolution, 12M-pixel 1000 frame / s imager to meet the Army's digital imaging needs for weapons test and evaluation. Through this program, R3 Logic will not only build and demonstrate a high-resolutionimager, but will formulate a new methodology for commercially viable fabrication of large-format focal plane arrays. Large focal plane digital imag ...

  8. Combinatorial Synthesis and Screening of Sensing Nanomaterial for Warfare Agents

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

    "The overall goal of the proposed program is to provide military personnel with a hand-held analyzer capable of detecting chemical and biological agents, as well as toxic industrial chemicals. This will be accomplished through the use of a newnanocomposite material (metal-doped sol-gel) that enhances analyte specific Raman signals sufficiently to allow identifying and quantifying agents at releva ...

  9. CZT ARrays for Ultra-fast X-ray Imaging

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

    "Cadmium zinc telluride is the room temperature detector of choice for non-destructive imaging applications. Monolithic CZT arrays with high count-rate capability (>1e+6 cps/pixel) are required for ultra-fast hyperspectral x-ray imaging. Presently, theyield of CZT detector arrays that can perform hyperspectral imaging (in milliseconds) is low. Most monolithic arrays suffer from "polarization" w ...

  10. Scene Estimation & Situational Awareness Mapping Engine (SESAME)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a Scene Estimation & Situational Awareness Mapping Engine (SESAME) enabling mobile robots to autonomously build multi-resolution volumetric models of semi-structured scenes, such as parking lots and city streets. Our model generationalgorithm is suited for both single-camera and stereo setups, enabling 3-D sensing of the environment all around the robot using only a few low- ...
