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. PRODUCTION OF AN INDUSTRIAL THERMOSETTING RESIN FROM WHEY AND WHEY BY-PRODUCTS

    SBC: Chemical Process Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVENT OF ULTRAFILTRATION PROCESSES HAS ALLOWED THE CHEESE INDUSTRY TO PRODUCE HIGH-QUALITY, WHEY-PROTEIN CONCENTRATES FOR USE AS FOOD INGREDIENTS. AT THE SAME TIME,HOWEVER, MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF THE WHEY VOLUME IS COLLECTED AS ESSENTIALLY UNUSABLE WHEY PERMEATE CONTAINING 5% LACTOSE AND ACCOMPANYING SALTS. ABOUT 20% BY VOLUME OF THE WHEY REMAINS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHEESE CURD AND IS EXPELL ...

  2. "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 ...

  3. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

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

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  4. REMOVAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM GASEOUS EFFLUENT STREAMS BY NOVEL PERFLUOROMEMBRANES

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EFFLUENT STREAMS ARE A SERIOUS AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM. CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR VOCS HAVE BEEN OXIDATION OR CARBON ABSORPTION BUT RECENTLY MEMRANES HAVE SHOWN EFFECTIVENESS. PRESENT MEMBRANE PROCESSES WORK BY PREFERENTIALLY PASSING VOCS (VERSUS AIR) THROUGH THE MEMBRANE AND THEN COMPRESSING AND CONDENSING OUT DOWNSTREAM VOCS. ADVANTAGES OF THIS MEMBRANE PROCESS INCLU ...

  5. ON BOARD OXYGEN GENERATING MEMBRANES FOR REDUCED START-UP EMISSIONS

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Automobile three-way catalyst (TWC) are quite efficient at steady state operatingtemperature typically destroying 98% of incoming hydrocarbons (HCs) and carbonmonoxide (CO). However, up to 80% of emissions occur during the first fewminutes of Federal Test Procedure when the engine is running rich, the engine iscold and TWC has not reached light-off temperature. To significantly reduce HCsand CO ...

  6. Reduction of NOX from Diesel Engines Using Nitrogen Enriched Air

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Novel Fiber Optic Biosensor for Pesticide Residue Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Reduced NOx/Hydrocarbon Emissions via Oxygen Enriched Lean Burn Engines

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lean burn spark engines are a promising technique to further reduce both NOx and hydrocarbon/carbon monoxide (HC/CO) engine emissions. Higher lean burn levels improve HC/CO oxidation while simultaneously reducing NOx formation. The NOx reduction is due to cooler flame temperatures. While the lean burn limit (beyond which combustion is poor) restricts further emission reductions, the use of oxyg ...

  9. Polymer-Based Competitive Flow Sensor Detects Contaminants in the Field

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

    This Phase II project addresses the development of technology that would provide field-based quantitative detection of a wide range of environmental contaminants through the use of molecularly imprinted polymers and fluorescence detection. The proposed method would complement immunological methods of analysis that have been adapted to contaminants such as herbicides and pesticides. The well-docume ...

  10. Retrofitting Diesel Electrical Generators for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Diesel generator sets (gen-sets) are used routinely to supply electrical power. Hospitals, businesses, and small communities use gen-sets to help reduce costs by load leveling and provide emergency power during blackouts (either scheduled or unscheduled). Recent power outages in California have led to large increases in the purchase of gen-sets, primarily for providing emergency power. In addition ...
