  1. Inexpensive Formaldehyde Sensor for Indoor Air Quality Application

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Formaldehyde is a reactive and flammable aldehyde which is well known as one of the harmful volatile organic compounds. A_x000D_ combination of respiratory disease, allergic dermatitis and other ailments so called Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is associated with chronic exposure to formaldehyde. Therefore, monitoring for formaldehyde is important in residential buildings. In this Phase I_x000D_ dev ...

  2. An Inexpensive Hand-Held Monitor for Measuring Fugitive Methane Emissions

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 16NCER1B

    Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted after carbon dioxide, however, on a pound-to-pound comparison methane has a 25 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Accordingly, the 2014 Climate Action Plan signed by President Obama has directed agencies including the USDA, DOE, and EPA to reduce methane emissions. A significant effort in th ...

  3. Nanostructured Carbon Based Capacitive Desalination

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 16NCER4A

    Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a robust, energy efficient, and cost effective technology for water desalination. In collaboration with Dr. Satish Kumar and Dr. Costas Tsouris at Georgia Tech, we are developing nanostructured carbon material for effective and economical water and wastewater desalination. Our new approach for CDI is enabled by (1) synthesis of nanostructured high surface area acti ...

  4. A STAGED FLUID BED CONTACTOR FOR THE ECONOMIC THERMAL DESTRUCTION OF TOXIC CHEMICALS ON SOILS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS, IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS. IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS MUST BE RELOCATED AND MANY ACRE-FEET OF SOIL MUST BE EXCAVA-TED AND TREATED OR STORED IN "SAFE" STORAGE FACILITIES. IM-PROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE CLEAN-UP CO ...

  5. COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL USING THE ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS

    SBC: Energy Sciences Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS WILL BE INVESTI- GATED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DESTROY TOXIC MOLECULES SUCH AS DIOXINS, FURANS, AND POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCAR- CARBONS PRODUCED, FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. SOME ISOMERS OF THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC; THEREFORE,THE WORK WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING NON-TOXIC MODEL COMPOUNDS EXHIBITING CHEMICAL FUNC ...

  7. CATALYTIC STABILIZED THERMAL COMBUSTION OF HAZARDOUS ORGAN- ORGANICS

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN ATTRACTIVE POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE TO CURRENT HAZARDOUS ORGANICS INCINERATORS IS THE CATALYTICALLY STABILIZED THER- MAL (CST) COMBUSTOR. EXPLORED IN THE LATE 1970'S (WITH EPA FUNDING) AS A COMBUSTION SYSTEM TO ELIMINATE GAS TURBINE NOXEMISSIONS, THE CST COMBUSTOR USES CATALYTIC SURFACE REAC- TIONS TO STABILIZE GAS PHASE COMBUSTION, COMBINING HIGH GAS PHASE REACTION RATES WITH THE LEAN BURN CAPABI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. TECHNOLOGY FOR DETOXIFYING SOLID AND LIQUID ORGANIC WASTE

    SBC: Synlize Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I, RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DEVELOP AN AP- PROACH FOR A NEW COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO MINERALIZE A WIDE VARIETY OF TOXIC ORGANIC COMPOUNDS WHICH OCCUR IN LARGEAMOUNTS IN SOLID AND LIQUID INDUSTRIAL WATES. THIS APPROACH EMPLOYS PHOTOPROMOTED SOLID-CATALYZED OXIDATIVE DEGRADATION TO CONVERT THE TOXIC COMPOUNDS TO EN- VIRONMENTALLY COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS, NAMELY, CO2 FROM CHEMICALLY BOU ...

  9. MODIFICATION

    SBC: Eng, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT PROMISING DEVELOPMENTS IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY "PROFILE MODIFICATION TECHNOLOGY" (PMT) WILL BE EVALUATED FOR THEIR APPLICATION TO LEAKING LANDFILL SITES. PROFILE FLOW MODIFICATION TREATMENTS ARE USED TO INCREASE FLOW RESISTANCE IN HIGH PERMEABILITY AREAS FAR (75 FEET TO AS MUCH AS 1000 FEET) FROM THE INJECTION WELLBORE. THESE TREATMENTS CAN WITHSTAND FORMATION PRESSURES AND TEMPERATURES U ...

  10. USE OF PULSED ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION IS PROPOSED AS A MEANS TTO DETOXIFY EQUIPMENT USED IN THE PREPARATION OF TOXIC CH CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS.

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    USE OF PULSED ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION IS PROPOSED AS A MEANS TTO DETOXIFY EQUIPMENT USED IN THE PREPARATION OF TOXIC CH CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS. THE RADIATION WILL SERVE TO BOTH V VAPORIZE MATERIAL ADHERING TO THE SURFACE AS WELL AS TO BRING ABOUT PHOTOLYTIC DESTRUCTION. THIS COMBINATION OF EFFEFFECT IS PROJECTED TO PROVIDE A DRY CLEANING CONCEPT WHERE THE TOXIC MATERIAL AND ITS BYPRODUCTS (POTENTIALLY T ...
