  1. Enhanced Soil Vapor Extraction


    Conventional volatile organic compound (VOC) recovery membranes (silicone rubber) preferentially transport organics over air. Although this silicone rubber has shown some success, it is not appropriate upstream of catalytic oxidation. Catalytic oxidation requires modest increases in VOC concentration at pressure to maintain performance. This is best achieved by using a reverse separation membra ...

  2. Retrofitting Diesel Electrical Generators for Emission Reduction


    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 addit ...

  3. Limestone-Based Material for Arsenic Removal From Drinking Water

    SBC: HydroTech Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a problem facing many areas of the United States and the rest of the world. This problem has been highlighted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency¿s decision to mandate reductions in the acceptable level of arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10 ppb by the year 2006. In South Dakota alone, 18.6 percent of small and rural water supply systems w ...

  4. A Carbon-Polymer Matrix-Based Flue Gas Desulfurization Technology

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I research project involves an innovative technology for sulfur dioxide (SO2) removal from coal-burning flue gases: flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technology. The current FGD technologies are expensive and energy extensive, and they generate secondary pollution. For example, the limestone-based wet scrubber FGD system costs up to 15 percent of the total construction cost of a coal-fi ...

  5. Anti-Terrorism- Consequence Management and Recovery

    SBC: CCL Biomedical Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of terrorist or military attack using biological, chemical or radiological weapons is one of the largest concerns to U.S. military forces. Development of defense initiatives that can be implemented to neutralize agents and decontaminatepersonnel, equipment and buildings are required to counter the potentially catastrophic effects of such an attack. A family of biocides has been identifi ...

  6. Photonic Crystal Chip-scale Optical Networks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the clock speeds of integrated circuits continue to increase, the technological limits of all-electrical interconnects are becoming the overwhelming limit to system performance. In particular, over 80% of the latency in current ICs is due tointerconnect limitations. Moreover, current processors are requiring operational powers in excess of 100 Watts with I/O, on-chip interconnections, and clo ...

  7. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells.The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...

  8. Hardware Accelerated RF Modeling of Shipboard Environments

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    In this effort we propose to develop an integrated analysis and design environment for the rigorous electromagnetic analysis and design of complex shipboard RF interactions for low frequencies (30MHz-2GHz). This integrated environment will include theability to predict the scattering and EMI coupling of RF apertures and include a both a wide variety of antenna types as well as complex topside ele ...

  9. Improved Body Armor


    High Performance Materials Group (HPMG) proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative and affordable lightweight body armor material consisting of a low density ceramic phase, a low density metal phase, and reinforcing wires or fibers of compatiblecomposition, preferably metal. Based on HPMG's extensive material development background, we anticipate the distribution and orientation of these ph ...

  10. Detection of Occupied Caves

    SBC: REALTRONICS            Topic: N/A

    This phase I SBIR project will investigate the feasibility of developing an unattended ground sensor for the detection of occupied caves. The proposed work is an extension of a technology that was developed and used by the applicant to detect human andother targets through building and cave walls and to map tunnels of ore that are several thousand feet below the surface. Accordingly, this altern ...
