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. "A HYBRID FLUIDIZED BED INCINERATOR FOR HAZARDOUS WASTES CONTAINING METALS"

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH INCINERATION IS AN ATTRACTIVE MEANS FOR DESTROYING ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE, TWO POTENTIAL PROBLEMS ARE (1) THE INCOMPLETE COMBUSTION OF WASTE COMPOUNDS DUE TO NON-OPTIMAL OR IMPROPER OPERATION (E.G., INADEQUATE ATOMIZATION, POOR MIXING, OR QUENCHING) AND (2) VOLATILIZATION AND RELEASE INTO THE ENVIRONMENT OF TOXIC METALS (E.G., AS, CD, HG, PB) CONTAINED IN THE WASTE. ADDING TO THE CONCERN ...

  2. "ALTERNATIVE MARINE COATINGS, AN ENVIRONMENTAL OPTION"

    SBC: KROSS, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT MARINE ANTIFOULING COATINGS RELY ON THE ACTIVITY OF TRIBUTYLTIN COMPLEXES, EITHER POLYMER BOUND OR FREELY ASSOCIATED IN A VINYL MATRIX PAINT, TO INHIBIT OR LIMIT SESSILE FOULING. PENDING FEDERAL LEGISLATION IS DIRECTED ATPROHIBITING OR RESTRICTING THE AMOUNT OF ANTIFOULANT ENTERING THE BIOSPHERE AND FOODCHAIN. IN LIGHT OF THESE FACTS AN ALTERNATE PROTECTIVE SYSTEM IS NECESSARY. KROSS INCOR ...

  3. "REDUCED ENTRAIN MENT PRECIPITATOR

    SBC: ETHERWARE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE REDUCED ENTRAINMENT PRECIPATATOR WILL HAVE IMPROVED COL-LECTION EFFICIENCY FOR DUSTS HAVING EITHER HIGH OR LOW ELEC-TRICAL RESISTIVITIES. THIS OBJECTIVE IS ACCOMPLISHED BY PRO-VIDING A POROUS, FABRIC COLLECTING SURFACE. A SMALL PORTION (TYPICALLY LESS THAN 20%) OF THE DIRTY GAS STREAM IS DRAWN THROUGH THE COLLECTED DUST CAKE AND THE POROUS COLLECTING PLATE BY A SEPARATE FAN. THIS SMALL FLOW TH ...

  4. "REDUCTION OF DIESEL PARTICULATE EMISSIONS BY ELECTROSTATIC AGGLOMERATION, INERTIAL COLLECTION AND REBURNING"

    SBC: Hamilton Maurer International            Topic: N/A

    NEW FEDERAL STANDARDS THAT COME INTO EFFECT IN 1988 WILL REQUIRE HEAVY DUTY DIESEL EXHAUST PARTICULATE EMISSION REDUCTIONS OF APPROXIMATELY 60%. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT APPROXIMATELY 75% OF DIESEL PARTICLES ARE CHANGED DURING COMBUSTION AND COULD BE COLLECTED ON THE SURFACES OF AN ELECTROSTATIC AGGLOMERATOR (ESA). THESE PARTICLES WOULD GROW ON THE SURFACES BY AGGLOMERATION AND BE REENTRAINED INTO T ...

  5. "REDUCTION OF ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY TOXIC AIR EMISSIONS THROUGH THE USE OF A NOVEL VENT GAS SCRUBBER"

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE AMERICAN MICROELECTRONICS INDUSTRY HAS SPAWNED NEW ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCESSES USED TO PREPARE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS, THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC DEVICES. MOST OF THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN IGNORED BECAUSE RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMES OF CHEMICALS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION. HOWEVER, THE EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH TOXICITY OF THE ...

  6. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  7. A Carbon-Polymer Matrix Based Flue Gas Purification Technology

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERPB

    The current flue gas purification technologies are expensive, energy intensive, and secondary pollution generating. Most of these technologies only remove a single pollutant from flue gases. For example, the prevailing limestone-based scrubber not only is expensive and energy consuming, but also generates a large amount of liquid and solid wastes. The goal of the Phase I research proj ...

  8. A GREEN AND UNIQUE THERMOSETTING-THERMOPLASTIC POLYCARBONATE

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 16NCER2B

    Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced per year most will require 500 years to biodegrade. Currently only 9% is recycled, and 50 million tons of thermoset plastic produced annually that can't be recycled. _x000D_ _x000D_ This project will develop a sustainable and easily biodegradable polycarbonate plastic that is uniquely a recyclable thermoset resin. We call it a thermosetting thermoplastic ...

  9. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosoridium is a resilient waterborne protozoan pathogen that caused gastrointestinal disease and is one of five major causes for 5 million deaths each year worldwide. Recently, a Cryptosoridium outbreak has sickened more than 1,700 people, mostly children and teenagers in New York. Cryptosoridium oocysts are of particular interest in the water industry because the infectious dose is low (1to ...
