  1. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  2. Low Cost Fuel Grade Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    The membrane drying process for ethanol plants should be of great value in increasing capacity and/or reducing energy consumption for existing ethanol plants. We will manufacture modules of the novel membrane with a commercial partner. A pilot demonstration unit will be constructed and deployed at an actual ethanol plant for demonstrating the membrane process capabilities and advantages.

  3. Enhancing Biosynthesis of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass (Topic 8.8)

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    This program will provide low cost routes for biosynthesis of these and many other organics. Using biomass for production of fuels and chemical provides for a domestic, renewable and green route to address our fuel and chemical needs. This program provides a simple and inexpensive route for generating these domestic and renewable products

  4. Venting of Underground Storage Tanks Containing Ethanol-Gasoline Blends

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

    Fugitive emissions of VOCs from gasoline marketing facilities are an energy, safety and environmental issue. All new vehicles made after the year 2000 must have an Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery System (ORVR) which increase fugitive emissions of refueling stations because of interface between ORVR vehicles and gasoline station underground storage systems (UST). The increase of VOCs is attributed ...

  5. Solvent recovery from vegetable oil miscella by novel solvent-resistant nanofiltration membranes

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

    Vegetable oil is commonly extracted from oil seeds using hexane. Separation of oil and solvent (hexane) from this extracted mixture (known as miscella) is usually carried out by solvent evaporation or distillation. Solvent recovery from miscella consumes about 50% of the total energy required for the edible oil production. Solvent evaporation is an energy intensive operation and explosive vapors i ...
