  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. 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 ...

  3. CONVERSION OF HAZARDOUS CHROMIUM PLATING SLUDGE INTO ALUMINOTHERMIC CHROMIUM METAL

    SBC: Climax Research Services            Topic: N/A

    Chromium plating sludge waste from hard and decorative chromium platingoperations is classified as a hazardous waste and its disposal is a majorenvironmental concern. Climax Research Services (CRS) will develop techniquesto recycle the chromium metal values in the sludge back into the domesticmetallurgical industry as purified aluminothermic chromium metal. This proposaladdresses initially the h ...

  4. Novel Process for Functional Chromium Plating from Non-Toxic Trivalent Chromium (Cr(III)) Plating Bath

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chromium coatings are widely used in various industries. Functional chromium is currently plated from a Cr(VI) bath. However, Cr(VI) is identified as one of 17 "high-priority" toxic chemicals by the EPA. Compared to Cr(VI), Cr(III) is environmentally benign and the waste disposal cost is significantly reduced. However, functional chromium coatings are not currently available from a Cr(III) bat ...

  5. ELECTROPLATING FROM ADDITIVE-FREE ELECTROLYTES

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Faraday Technology, Inc. proposes to develop an electroplating process fromadditive-free bath for the printed wiring board (PWB) industry and metal platingindustry. Current state-of-the-art metal plating relies on baths containingproprietary additive. These additives were developed empirically and consist ofbrighteners, levelers, and surfactants. These additives affect the platingprocess to yie ...

  6. HIGH EFFICIENCY ELECTROCHEMICAL TREATMENT OF GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of an innovativeelectrochemical process for high efficiency simultaneous recovery of mixed heavymetals from contaminated groundwater. Electrochemical recovery of metals fromwastewater is a promising approach for metal recycle. However, the conventionalelectro-chemical method is not efficient to treat dilute wastewater.Additionally, when ...

  9. ENZYMATIC NITRATE ELIMINATION TECHNOLOGY FOR SMALL SYSTEMS

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: N/A

    Nitrate contamination of ground water is a world wide problem. Nitrate at 10 ppm Nitrate-N (EPA's MCL) is toxic to infants, and chronic exposure may be harmful to adults. Physical and chemical nitrate removal methods only concentrate the pollutant, and bioremediation methods introduce other contaminants into the water. In the Phase I stage of this project, The Nitrate Elimination Company, Inc. ...

  10. Innovative Volatile Heavy-Metal Air-Toxics Control

    SBC: Sorbent Technologies Corp            Topic: N/A

    The emission of mercury into the atmosphere from combustion sources has increasingly become a major environmental and health concern. The recent Clean Air Act Amendments have called for close scrutiny and possible limits on mercury emissions. Unfortunately, because it is in the form of a vapor or submicron aerosol in gas streams, elemental mercury has proven very difficult and expensive to contr ...
