  1. PipeTaz: Automated Pipe Asbestos Insulation Removal and Processing System

    SBC: AUTOMATIKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60104 Asbestos abatement costs, associated with the DOE¿s national weapons¿ complex clean-up efforts, may amount to $300-500 million, while nationally, asbestos abatement may cost more than $100 billion over the next 25 years. Abatement methods have changed little in the past 20 years, and there is a need for a cheaper, faster, and safer abatement method. This project will design, buil ...

  2. Harsh Fluorochemical Separations


    60311 There are economic and environmental justifications for replacing conventional distillation processes with simpler membrane separations in certain applications. However, at present, there are no commercial membranes able to withstand the aggressive conditions associated with important industrial chemicals, including hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride, and ozone. Prototype, chemic ...

  3. Membranes for Reverse Organic-Air Separations


    60395 Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from gasoline refueling facilities continue to be an energy, safety, and environmental issue. In such applications, it is desired to vent the air in the system and keep the VOC behind. This project will develop a reverse separation membrane (RSM) system that allows for rapid venting of air while retaining the gasoline in underground storag ...

  4. Dewatering Membrane for Hazy Hydrodesulfurization Unit Effluents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many refinery product streams, particularly those from Ultra Low Hydrodesulfurisation units, are prone to haze due to water emulsions. Haze is also problematic for biodiesel production, as hazy fuel cannot be used until the haze settles or is removed, which creates costly scheduling and shipping delays. This project will develop a novel membrane process for the removal of dissolved and dispersed ...

  5. Nano-Scale High-Surface-Area Thermal and Conductive Ceramics as Effectice Support for Metal Oxide Catalysts in Alkane Selective Oxidation

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 07

    Compared with conventional processes used to produce many oxygenated chemicals, processes based on the selective catalytic oxidation of alkanes to produce oxygenates could yield enormous economic, energy, and environmental benefits. However, commercial development of such processes has been hindered, in part, because the excessive heat released by alkane oxidation causes over-oxidation (burning) ...

  6. Magnetic Separation of Catalyst Fischer-Tropsch Wax

    SBC: Exportech Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60585 Fischer Tropsch (F-T) synthesis is a promising process for producing high quality, environmentally clean, diesel fuels. However, the separation of catalyst fines from the Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reactor product stream has been a major impediment to applying the technology for the conversion of hydrocarbon resources such as coal and petroleum coke to clean burning fuels. This project w ...

  7. Affinity Ceramic Membranes with Carbon Dioxide Transport Channel

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60924 The development of affinity membranes has the potential to offer a quantum leap in membrane-based separation technology. Current polymeric membrane researchers modify surface functionality to offer a specific affinity; however, in the area of inorganic membranes, few similar activities exist. This project will develop an affinity inorganic membrane that can demonstrate separations ba ...

  8. Graphite Foam Heat Exchanger Technology for Energy Recovery

    SBC: Thermal Centric Corporation            Topic: 11

    The recovery of heat currently wasted in exhaust gases can reduce fuel consumption in almost every commercial and industrial sector. In the electricity generation sector alone, even modest improvements in energy recovery effectiveness would result in billions of dollars in savings annually. New materials made from conductive graphite have created a significant opportunity to produce heat exchang ...

  9. High Resolution, 15-micron thin, Pixellated, Back-illuminated SOI CMOS Vertex Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Planned high energy physics (HEP) experiments require improvements in detector technology characterized by improved parameters for granularity, readout speed, radiation hardness and sensor thickness. Of the available detector technologies, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) pixilated imagers offer several advantages, but CMOS detectors, due to readout and fixed pattern noise, have not ...

  10. Large Area, High Dynamic Range, Sold State Photomultiplier Array for Cherenkov Calorimetry

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Existing solid state detectors, such as charge coupled device (CCD) and complimentary metal oxide silicon (CMOS) imagers do not have adequate ultraviolet (UV) sensitivity for Cherenkov radiation detection. Therefore, a new type of UV-optimized, high-gain, low-noise, solid state avalanche photodiode (APD) is needed for low-level light detection of Cherenkov radiation. In recent years, silicon, CMO ...
