  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. ADDITIVES FOR NOX EMMISSIONS CONTROL FROM FIXED SOURCES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. 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 ...

  6. COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF A MAGNETIC SEPARATOR FOR OPERATION ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION ...

  7. AN OPTICAL IMPULSE GENERATOR

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, COMPACT, LOW MAINTENANCE SUB-PICOSECOND OPTICAL PULSE SOURCE TO DRIVE AN OPTICALLY SAMPLED AND TRIGGERED OSCILLOSCOPE. ADEQUATE LASER SOURCES PRESENTLY OCCUPY TEN SQUARE FEET AND REQUIRE REGULAR MAINTENANCE, 20 KW OF ELECTRICITY, AND COOLING WATER; AND THEY COMPRISE THE MAIN COST ITEM IN THE PICOSECOND OSCILLOSCOPE. THE NEW PULSED LASER UNDER DEVELOPMENT IN THIS ...

  8. A DIODE LASER-BASED DIRECT GRADIENT SENSOR FOR MONITORING ATMOSPHERIC DRY DEPOSITION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of Energy
  9. A REAL-TIME IMAGING SYSTEM FOR ENHANCING DNA HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MOST ACTIVE AND CHALLENGING FIELDS IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TODAY IS THE GENETIC STUDY OF EUKARYOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRELIMINARY, BUT OFTEN RATE LIMITING, STEPS IN THIS AREA ARE THE DNA TRANSFER/HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH GENE MAPPING, AND THE SCREENING OF DNA LIBRARIES FOR GENE ISOLATION. THESE PROCEDURES USE RADIOLABELED HYBRIDIZATION TECHNIQUES AND AUTORADIOGRAPHY TO ACHIEVE ...

  10. DIAMOND COATINGS AND WINDOWS FOR MILLIMETER MICROWAVE TUBES

    SBC: Applied Science And Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF DIAMOND MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE AS A MATERIAL FOR USE IN HIGH FREQUENCY, HIGH POWER, MILLIMETER MICROWAVE TUBES AND TRANSMISSION LINES. RECENT ADVANCES IN GYROTRONS AND FREE ELECTRON LASERS (FELS) AS POWER SOURCES, AND EXCELLENT PHYSICS RESULTS FROM THE T-10 TOKAMAK IN THE U.S.S.R. AND BIG-D AT GA TECHNOLOGIES IN THE U.S., HAVE HAD A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE FUSION PROGRAM. AN EXPER ...
