  1. Enhanced Soil Vapor Extraction

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

    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

    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 addit ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  7. GaP ZnS for Blue Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower is developing a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell composed of (AlxGa1-x)0.51In.49P lattice matched to GaAs for use as the top cell in a three-junction, two-terminal tandem stack. This tunable bandgap material system is capable of current matching, at 2.03eV, in a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell two terminal design of (AlxGa1-x)0.51In0.49P/GaAs yielding a best case pred ...
