  1. Low-Cost Mercury Sorbents Derived From Waste Tires

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research project, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., addresses two important environmental problems: (1) removal and recovery of mercury from combustion/incineration flue gas, and (2) reprocessing of waste tires into value-added products. Coal combustion and incineration of municipal and hazardous wastes results in air pollution due to emissions of trace amounts of heavy metals. Because of t ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. 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. 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 ...

  6. Gun Launched Guided Projectile

    SBC: AZTECH ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Conventional medium caliber projectiles fall short of desired effectiveness due to factors such as aiming inaccuracy, component manufacturing tolerances, wind effects, etc. A guided projectile that could obviate these factors would substantially improvehit probability, increasing effective range and lethality. Commensurately longer standoff distances also increase warfighter survivability. Furthe ...

  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. Field-Enhanced Carbon Monoxide Tolerance of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To be commercially competitive, PEM fuel cells have to be able to run on readily available fuels. Fuel reformers are practical, but fuel cell anode catalysts are severely poisoned by small quantities of carbon monoxide from the reformer. Despite mucheffort invested into increasing CO tolerance, desired performance levels have not been achieved.Our Phase I data has demonstrated excellent CO-toler ...

  10. High Performance, Concealed, Ceramic-Based Armor Panels for Military and Commercial Vehicles

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An extremely capable team of M Cubed Technologies and Simula is providing an innovative approach to the design and fabrication of ceramic-based armor panels for military and commercial vehicles. In short, large ceramic tiles of complex shape willfabricated, then encapsulated in ballistic polymer. The resultant panels will match the shape of internal cavities within the commercial vehicle, thus a ...
